My wife and I stayed there for about a week, and it was great, i would return to this hotel. I would have given it a full rating except that it was missed it by few minor things such as no trash can / pen /writing paper/ napkins-tissues in room, dated (but clean) bathroom, and no room service, or food menus. However, its all ok because of location (walking distance to restaurants), Hiagh Sofia, Blue Mosque, Bazaar, and tram. The staff spoke good english and was knowledgeable of touristy needs, they can call cabs for you, give you recommendations, and make your stay pleasant. Breakfast on the terrace was simple, but nice variety that included all your basics, breads, honey/jams, tea/juice, eggs, milk, and cereal (all good in quality and presentation). It was snowing for few days, rooms where generally comfortable, but the heater had a crazy schedule and it would be cold for a little bit then very warm later. But nothing intolerable. Due to the proximity to the road, you can here some street vendors and other walker-by, but that makes it more authentic. Overall i'd give this place a 7.5 out of ten, and I would stay there again for couples or small families on a budget.
