We booked this hotel as it is a 15 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and a 10 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar. The room size was perfect for us and it was clean and tidy. The AC was functioning as well as the TV. Apart from the thin walls of which you can hear people talking, the service was excellent and the staff members were super friendly! The terrace has amazing views which we couldn’t get enough of when eating our breakfast. Overall, the experience was lovely and we would book again in the future.
