    Best hotel in Istanbul!!

    This is a fantastic hotel! Everyone at the hotel is extremely nice, hospitable and wonderfully professional. From the moment we entered we were greeted with such respect, and were in awe with the aesthetics of the hotel. It is decorated with a really traditional Turkish feel, and the hotel, from the lobby to the room and the bathroom, is always kept extremely clean. We particularly loved the little amenities we were given throughout our stay like the dates to greet us. They even offered transportation to the main square in the old city. Nevertheless, the location is perfect for seeing everything in old city, including the blue mosque and grand bazaar which are within walking distance. Anyone visiting Istanbul should stay at this hotel!!
