Overall a great place to stay, but with a couple of issues. The hotel is in a good location, just a couple of blocks from a tram station, so easy to get to/from the airport and other areas of the city. Our room was clean, had views of the Sea of Marmara (get a higher room for better views), had good beds and was a good size. The breakfast buffet was included in our price and had an excellent selection. The staff was not always as helpful as they could be (though the housekeeper who cleaned our room was nice and did a great job). The biggest issue was that the air conditioning often worked poorly, in spite of repeated calls to have it adjusted, which made it too warm to sleep comfortably several nights. To get to this hotel inexpensively from the airport buy an Istanbulkart travel card at the airport Metro station (charge it with at least a total of ₺4/person), take the metro to the Zeytinburnu stop, transfer to the T1 tram marked Eminönü or Kabataş and get off at the Beyazıt tram stop, then walk two blocks to the hotel. less
