Nice location, rooms OK, bad service

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 20, 2008

The location of this hotel is pretty much perfect, in the Sultanahmet region of İstanbul, the touristy area on the European side south of the Golden Horn. All the major tourist sites are minutes' walk away. We even walked all the way back from Taksim Square (up where the better restaurants are) in about 90 minutes.

Our room was decent enough, and quiet enough. We were on the 4th floor (I believe) and only had a view of an alleyway, but it wasn't too bad. Looking sideways out one of the bay windows, we could see a major mosque (see photo). The breakfast room on the top floor was very pleasant with great views and a standard buffet selection of food.

The porter was an excellent helpful fellow, but he could only do so much. The front desk staff were absolutely useless with pretty much any request at all, and housekeeping was hit-and-miss.

I would not stay there again. I would stay up closer to Taksim Square where the better business hotels are, and the better restaurants, and then take a taxi a couple of times to Sultanahmet for all the tourist sites, and then walk back each time. Failing that, I would splurge for the Four Seasons in that area.

Directions: Pretty much the centre of the Sultanahmet district, 5 to 10 minutes' walk to most tourist attractions and a 90 minute walk to Taksim Square.
