8/10 Very good

Good for the price
The hotel was good for the price. Not very spacious but not very petite either. Location was great, close to the attractions as well as the Grand Bazaar. Food at the hotel was good as well, plenty of options on their in-house lunch & dinner menu as well. Concierge services were decent with guidance and some attraction options

Loved the Spectra hotel
Great little hotel in an unbeatable location. The room was very comfortable, tastefully furnished and surprisingly quite given it's on a busy street. The location is amazing, steps away from the Blue Mosque and walkable Hagia Sofia and a famous castle. There are numerous dining options and the food at the hotel restaurant was amazing. The staff is super cool and treats you like family, do not hesitate to ask them for advice activities and shopping. A special thanks to the night manager Hasan who was always willing to serve me a cup of tea, a glass of wine or a snack when I took a break from work which ended at 2 am. It was also great to have someone to chat with. I recommend and will return next time I'm in Istanbul
