It was the first of many hotels through out our stay around Turkey and it was an auspicious beginning for a wonderful visit. As we entered the hotel, we were impressed by the tastefully decorated lobby. Our room was compact but clean, well equipped and modern. We could actually sleep well on our first night in Istanbul after a long haul flight. We suspect it was partly due to the firm but comfortable bed and also because it was quiet outside. Its location is central to all major Istanbul's attractions and situated near a shopping area although we did not have time to do any due to our packed itinerary. The staff were pleasant, courteous and friendly. It was not a problem for them that we requested for an early breakfast at 6 am. We did not have to wait at all and the choices were not bad.We were just a bit disappointed there was no coffee and tea making facility nor complimentary bottled drinking water provided. But overall, it was still a very pleasant albeit short stay.
