    Fabulous

    The staff were courteous and attentive. The concierge service was excellent!

    I thought the pubic washroom off the lobby was quite below standards as far as being maintained.

    The hotel is in a nice building, with an attractive terrace restaurant and separate breakfast room. The staff is excellent: high proportion of English speakers, and all whom we met were eager to be helpful. For example, one evening when the restaurant was full they set up a dining facility for five of us on the front veranda of the hotel. Its location is perfect for tourism: next to the Aya Sofia, a short walk from most other attractions in the old town, near the tram line, etc. The only problem is that some taxi drivers didn't know how to find or get up the narrow street, and left us off some (usually short) distance from the hotel itself. Still, that gave us a chance to find interesting shops, restaurants, and the friendly and healthy cats that are fed by the generous locals.

    One part of the hotel has no elevator service, so visitors with mobility problems should make sure their room is in the other part or on the ground floor. The location is not so good if you have business in the newer, commercial centre of the city. Otherwise, there are no problems with the hotel itself, only with some taxi drivers (see above). We enjoyed staying there, would stay there again, and recommend it highly.

    I would like more information about sports and exercise opportunities (biking along the water, etc.) in the area next time... I am a bit more of a nature person. But your hotel was great.....A Truly lovely break from the madness!

    Charming Turkish style with a special vistor adviser to help guests emjoy their visit to the city. Fantastic location close to all the major sights in the old part of town.

    Dining room was cold (winter time) and rather expensive but the hotel gladly advised alternatives nearby.
