Very central hotel with friendly, helpful staff.
Posted May 7, 2016
We went to Istanbul to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We've been to Turkey many times but never to this wonderful city. We booked the hotel because of previous positive reviews and also central location in Sultanahmet, close to the Blue Mosque and transport system. The hotel lived up to expectations. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The room was clean and well appointed with a comfy bed, spa bath and mini bar as you would expect. We ate twice in the hotel at night. Good quality food. The breakfast was an interesting mix of meats, cheeses, olives and my favourite - stuffed vine leaves! The hotel was an excellent base for sightseeing as it was A 5 minute walk to Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace, Archaeological Museum, Basilica Cistern, and Blue Mosque. We spent 3 days walking around and visiting the marvellous sights of this historic city. We are already wanting to return to see some things we didn't have time for. On the birthday itself the staff arranged for a cake to be brought at breakfast which was a touching thought and much appreciated. The evening celebration took place on a dinner cruise on the Bosphorus again with birthday cake which had been arranged by the hotel staff. Magical trip.
