Great location, simple rooms, subpar staff
Posted May 22, 2014
Location leaves little to be desired if you're in Istanbul for only a few days. Rooms are comfortable and simple (though as with many hotels in this range--they're a bit hanky: the TV didn't work, shower door was easily nudged off its track, etc.) I'd give the place high marks without hesitation except for the staff, however. Not terrible, but not as hospitable as most in Turkey. The night man tried to fib to me about the cost of the metro to try and persuade me to book a hotel shuttle--not the end of the world, just a real drag not to have a trustworthy staff member at reception.
