My wife and I stayed there for one night before boarding our cruise ship. The desk clerk had spent years in the US, so he understood our interests and gave great advice. The location is superb- within a five to ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque and other sites. The room was clean and comfortable. It was not a suite- it was a fairly standard room. For one night it didn't matter.

The hotel was a great experience for first-time tourists in Istanbul. The location was perfect--very close to the Hagia Sophia, Hippodrome, and Blue Mosque with a rooftop view of the water. You can walk to pretty much anywhere in the old city from here. There were also a lot of restaurants, bars, gift shops, and dessert shops near the hotel. The restaurants get competitive for your business at night but if you ignore them they won't bother you. The hotel staff go out of their way to make you comfortable--things like providing maps, tour recommendations, phone calls, trips to and from the airport, umbrellas, dry cleaning, converters, printing services, and more. The big breakfast every day was great too. Lastly I would recommend their spa--I did the Sultan's massage which was half Turkish Bath and half therapeutic massage and loved it!

Room Tip: See if they will give you a balcony. Rooms on the side away from the street are quieter.

Room with balcony with view over roofs to Sea of Marmara. So called honeymoon suite.
Reasonable size for older style hotel & reasonable appointments(except no top sheet on bedding, just the blanket!).
Staff service was good & helpful but pricing was quite over the top from 249euro to 349euro/night over the 4 nights stayed! I feel we were ripped off by Best Western.
Friends were staying for 60- 160euro cheaper in equivalent hotel nearby(no quitet the same balcony view though).Didn't like the Turkish style breakfasts which are quite ordinary considering that this is supposed to be an International style hotel.

Room Tip: Room 501 has the best views with good size balcony

This was a great hotel and a great experience. Everything was more than we expected. The food was very good and the service could not have been any better. The staff was excellent and the room was perfect. Excellent view and service. If you have any question they can help you for everything and they can organize some tours and private guide. Would recommend this hotel to everyone:)

Haven't really got anything negative to say - we stayed here for two night on arriving in Istanbul from Brisbane. The room was lovely, had everything we wanted/ needed - tv, air con, fridge and a good bathroom. The breakfast was amazing, such colours and choice made for a great start to the day.
