We found this 5 star hotel for a very good discount. It is situated along the busy Sehzade Basi Caddesi with easy connections to the famous attractions in Sultanahmet, the old town, only a few tram stops away. The hotels feature a generous free brunch (but they take extra charge for the juice!), 2 swimming pools (one in the basement and one on the roof top), a good italian restaurant, bar, brunch restaurant, a huge chandelier in the lobby/stairway, 2 aquariums, billiard table, spa, turkish bath. Our double room featured a nice jacuzzi (!), french balcony, phone in the bathroom, minibar, a virtual fireplace and a large flatscreen TV, mostly with turkish channels. The interior of the room was ok, but nothing special.

There was also a portier that met us at the entrance and helped us with the luggage to our taxi, very nice. The staff are friendly, but not very. Some of them are not very friendly. For example when we were about to check out they told us that we bought a juice from the minibar that we hadn't. A bit stange, but they believed us. The staff at the bar was extremely friendly and personal, and even shook our hands upon arrival. The interior of the hotel is very personal and very posh, even if some furnitures are a bit worn. We found chandeliers, beautiful mosaic windows, wooden ceilings and walls, glass tiles, and othervery beautiful decorations. The exterior of the building is also very nice, especially at night when it is illuminated in violet, blue and yellow colours. Overall it was very good value for money, but it feels more like 4 stars then 5 on some points. But still a 5 star hotel because of all extra features.
