Good place, slightly pricey but was well worth that considering the close proximity to the main tourist hotspot of Istanbul. Good staff all around. Very good breakfast each day. Hint: they don’t have scrambled eggs on the menu/service but if you ask the staff they will quickly make one for you. The only minor complaint I have is with the AC unit in the room, despite this being end of December the room got quite warm due to direct sun and we needed to turn on the ac for a bit at night but couldn’t figure it out despite all efforts. I am sure the staff would have helped but we never asked just got used to sleeping with the patio door open (we were on the third floor so felt safe leaving it open)
