The hotel is very conveniently located close to some of the major attractions.
The rooms are very clean and I was very impressed by the handy amenities in the bathroom i.e. toothbrush/paste, shaving kit.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast impressive.

The bathroom was nice and clean.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale.

retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
Yes, as I book via the hotel's website for more than 3-day of stay, I got free airport pick-up. Then I took a bus to the airport for just EUR5, just around the corner. You just need to buy the ticket at least 1 day earlier.
