Fantastic Location - so so room size May 28, 2016
We stayed five days at this hotel. The location was fantastic, it is at Sirkeci area right at the old town with plenty of hotels, restaurants, café and baklava shops and many many shops selling whatever you need. It was walking distant to all the attractions in the old town and the tram stop not too far from the hotel. What I like the most is my favourite baklava shop is located nearby and we go there every day to enjoy the sweet.

Please note, taxi is not allow to go into the hotel during the day. When we arrived late night the taxi from airport could not find the hotel as it was one way system and probably the driver was not sure how to go there and he drop us one block from the hotel and we walk to the hotel. However on the way back to airport, we booked the hotel limousine service and it was waiting for us infront of the hotel, but we leave the hotel at 5 am in the morning.

The reception and all the staff in the hotel is very friendly and they open and closed the door when we come in and greet us with big smiles, and five information where to go and where to eat.

Our room located at the six floor facing the street where all the things happening. Unfortunately it also means very noisy especially the tram track is right in front of the hotel building. So, on the first night, I really could not sleep, as it was way too noisy for me and the next morning, we asked to change the room to a quiet room. Oh the first room was compact around 20sqm, with all the modern amenities, with a small balcony outside but we cannot really stay out in the balcony as it only put a flowers pot out there.

The second room was located at the back, slightly bigger room with windows facing another building. It was not that nice as we only have a building wall as a view, but it was very quit inside the room. However the plumbing in the bathroom was quite noisy. I can hear the water running when other people using the facilities.

The hotel has a small indoor swimming pool which is free for the hotel guest to use, but we did not use it as we were out the whole day and just come back to sleep.

The buffet breakfast was included in the room price and it was good. Plenty of selection from cold to hot dishes, and plenty of food for all the guest.

Unfortunately the hotel terracce Imbat restaurant was not serving food for lunch when were were there, however it was open for dinner. It was great view from the restaurant toward the city. We do not have time to taste the food at the restaurant.

It cost €58.50 per night for two people including buffet breakfast.
