Hotel Mina was a great find. The room was roomy enough for two people. Hot water was never an issue. No noise on our first stay and then later on our return trip later in the month we could hear the neighbours but nothing to bad just voices and sometimes the t.v.. It didn't bother us and it was quiet for sleeping. Breakfast buffet was well done, lots of choices. Great wait staff, and the view of the Marmaray Sea, harbour front and the Blue Mosque breathtaking. Great location for walking to all the top attractions, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Bascilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar, restaurants and shopping. Transit is ever present and quite easy to use. Wifi was sometimes weak in the rooms but always worked in the hotel lobby. Taxi to the airport was 50 Turkish Lira, each way. Very safe to walk around the area.
