This was my second time staying in the hotel having previously visited in 2006. Not much has changed in the last 12 years. The breakfast is very good and has a wide choice which should cater for everyone.

The hotel is conveniently located for the various sightseeing that is on offer in this part of Istanbul and it isn't too far from the bars and restaurants. The rooms were clean as was the hotel generally. The safe in each room is an added bonus.

However, one of the fundamental parts of staying in a hotel is to sleep well. Unfortunately, for us it just wasn't possible. The wooden floors in the rooms coupled with the paper thin walls mean every foot step, knock etc. from the room next door could be heard. You could even hear conversations late at night.

The wooden hangers in the built-in wardrobes are too long which means when you shut the doors they bang against the door and subsequently the wall next door. All very annoying. Rooms by the lifts are especially noisy for obvious reasons.

On reflection I would look to stay at another hotel next time.

Hotel is 5 mins walk from all main attractions such as blue mosque, hagia sofia etc. Best to go 9am when it opens and it's clear or gets very busy.

The hotel is hour drive from istanbul airport and hour n half from sabiha goken. Google transfers and use the istanbultransfers works out to €25 for 2 people one way.

The hotel itself is really clean, the beds are comfy and bathroom is clean. Double delux booked and pics attached.

The staff for me were terrible. Very rude and tried constantly selling the new years ticket. When we said we got it the main manager i believe said well fine goodluck in a stern dissapointed way. Then regarding our return cab to airport we booked another and he again said well you might not get it but goodluck because we didn't book with him. So rude and no smile from the beginning. When asking questions the lady is on her phone messaging and talking to us. It's rude in the UK as I'm sure its everywhere else.

Breakfast selection is big but mainly cheeses but does the job.

All in all good location and clean hotel, staff a big let down.
