The hotel was conveniently located near the tram and many places of interest are within easy reach. The rooms are indeed dark, but clean and the entire hotel is well looked after. The breakfast is very good, but not every day you get scrambled egg and other hot food, which people do often expect. Only downside was the very restricted knowledge of English of the staff (and actually in the whole of Istanbul). Furthermore, we hada wonderful time in this very nice city and the hotel is, certainly for its price, very good.
