      Staff, especilly porter was very helpful in stressed situation

      First, 3rd floor with no evevator was a major issue. Second, our booking indicated we had a room with balcony. We did not get that, we had a small third floor room with two relatively small windows. The porter on duty in the morning helped struggle the bags to the third floor to keep the situation from being a complete disaster, Manager basically told us the "Booking Dot Com" listing was "just wrong", we "got what we paid for".

      The location of the hotel is fantastic for visiting the main tourist sites like the blue mosque and bazaar. It is also only a 15 minute walk to the ferry terminal where you can travel to Asia for €1.75 one way with a ferry every 20 mins. The staff were very helpful with directions, nightcap drinks, suitcase storage and the chef at breakfast will make you any omlette or waffle you like. I definately recommend this hotel, even though the rooms are small, for visiting Istanbul city centre.

      The lack of a dedicated electric toothbrush/shaver socket in the bathroom. Not really a problem as we used the one in the bedroom to charge during the day when we were sightseeing.

      We loved everything. It was Aid Holiday, and our family gathering. Great value for the money. The breakfast was wonderful, and wi-fi made it an excellent value. The staff was awesome, and extremely accommodating. We loved the location. It was close to the sights, yet tucked away from the noise. We are definitely going back!!!!
