    Great location. Stayed here many times before but this time I booked a twin room as traveling with my son and there was a third bed making the space very tight. No drinking water and only a couple of tea bags. I had a problem with taxi from hotel, I booked return trip from the airport with Murat Turizm and they didn’t show up, each time we called they said they would be there in 15 mins. It meant we had a crazy rush to the airport and had to pay again for our transport. it spoiled a short trip and I would suggest not paying taxis for return journeys in advance.

    Amazing value as long as you pay less than $50.

    The place is very near the tram station and its maybe 3 blocks from it. Breakfast is very nice and a decent variety of food is available. There is a live looking station that makes eggs of your choice. The pool is the basement is heated . there is a sauna which is very clean and so is the Turkish bath (self service and free) . restaurant across the narrow alley is open late and staff is friendly. Neighborhood is very safe. Hotel might charge for water in the mini bar even though you don't use it (which is like 25cents ) so not a big deal. Staff is extremely helpful , pleasant, friendly and a few staff members speak adequate English. Internet is so-so. Tv chanels are all Turkish. From airport nearest Havaist (bus) stop is Eminunu. Go to basement to buy bus card and it takes 45 min to bus stop. Hotel is 1 km (1/2 mile) from bus stop.
