Super Staff
It was a fantastic stay. The staff was super helpful. Ali gave us an excellent overview of the city and all the tourist spots. Even gave us tips to save money in shopping and dining. Gave free maps. Arranged sunset bosphorous cruise tour and airport pickup for us. I couldnt have asked for a better and more helpful person esp while travelling with my family with 3 under 10 kids. The hotel is conveniently located within 5-10 min walk of Sultan Ahmet square. Surrounded by many shops and restaurants. It was an excellent decision to pick this hotel over others as there were many options when I was making reservation. I highly recommend it.

Ali in particular was incredibly helpful! He gave us a map and highlighted all the noteworthy places to visit and told us how to get there. He answered all our questions and offered us recommendations and advice. Ahmet too was great. When we arrived at the hotel at 3am because of delays, he stayed in the hotel lobby to let us in. He was a bit boggled so didn't tell us certain key pieces of info, but we can't blame him. The hotel itself was nice with air conditioned rooms. The room was of a good size and the bathroom was lovely. The shower was great and I loved the soft water, did wonders for my hair! The bed was so comfortable and I wish I could replace my own bed with the bed there. Location was perfect, all the major landmarks were very close (Hagia Sofia was about 15 minutes away by walking) and there were lots of shops and restaurants close by. The staff will happily arrange a taxi for you if needed and can help you with anything you need. Room service was done daily, with towels and water bottles replaced but all our stuff was untouched. Overall, a great experience and I'd be happy to stay here again. Do try and arrive during the day if possible as this makes things easier for all.
