Very Good 8.0
Overall satisfactory stay
Firstly, the pros: + Excellent location, just a 2-3 min walk to the Sultan Ahmet square. The hotel is located at Akbiyak Street, which remains well-lit throughout the night. Gives you a safe and secure feeling. Good shops nearby for buying souvenirs, close to Araasta Bazaar + Some of the guys at the front desk, like Kadir and Maalik are quite helpful and eager to help in any way. + You can take a Havaist (Airport Bus) from the Sultan Ahmet square for only 18 TL per person. It is a very comfortable airport transfer and there is no limit for check-in luggage. + Sultan Ahmet metro tram station is a 2 min walk from the hotel which connects with other Metro Lines very well. + Hotel is neat and clean. Now the negatives: - house keeping department can be improved as the bed sheet on our bed had a hole in it. We slept on it for two d. We requested for a new sheet and the one they give us had two instead of one hole. Anyhow problem was resolved. - Okta (front desk guy) was quite rude and unhelpful. We requested for a late check out and the way he behaved was quite inappropriate. - Monotonous breakfast, which can be improved in terms of quality as well (juices are completely undrinkable) and the worst part is they start removing stuff exactly at 10:30 from buffet even while you're still eating. - Only one side table in room. - worn out mattress - no iron in the room and expensive laundry. - Small rooms. Even size of superior room is small with one bed side table
