Our stay with the hotel was extended due to the closure of European air space. During the extended stay, the staff of the hotel were extremely helpful and were able to assist us with rebooking flights and extending our stay. This made the delays much easier to deal with than would otherwise have been the case.

We booked through Expedia but on arrival (which was late in the evening as a suitcase went missing at the airport for an hour) we were told the hotel was overbooked as their website booking tool had not closed. They were very apologetic and paid for a taxi to take us and our friends to a sister hotel that had...

When I walked into my room, there was a small basket of fresh fruit for me. I knew then that I had made a very good choice. I spent far too much time searching for a hotel when I finally decided to go with a brand from the USA. When I looked at the photos originally, I felt comfortable with...

Stayed 3 nights at beginning of VJV 'grand' tour of Turkey (great tour, by the way), and final night 2 weeks later. Clean, well managed hotel, well located for central Istanbul sights. Restaurant a little pricey perhaps, and wine prices silly, but since only walking distance to myriad more reasonably priced dining venues, really not a problem. Would happily return.

The hotel is located a few minutes walk from the Grand Bazaar and a ten minute gentle stroll from the main sites – Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace etc. The modern tram passes the top of the street and is a good way of getting back when tired or of getting to the harbour, railway station and attractions on...
