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...

Stayed here with my wife in 12/08 for a week. It was a great hotel for our city break to explore Istanbul. Next to the Grand Bazaar and straight up the Divan Yolu from Sultanahmet sights (which we eaily walked to and also took the tram) it was set in a convenient location. The staff were friendly, and the breakfast...

It is a fantastic place, with very friendly staff and perfect location. Breakfast was 5 star, rooms large and very clean and there was a fruit basket waiting for us.
