Legacy Ottoman - Istanbul
Great location in historic section of Istanbul, very close to the Spice Market and Bosporus river and ferries. There is also a tram line close by that can take visitors to the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Grand Bazaar. Some of the rooms have windows that only open to the interior of the hotel so you don't get fresh air. The air conditioning / ventilation brought in cigarette smokey air into my room, but that could have been pulled in from outside the hotel. The buffet breakfast has a wide variety of options.

Great location for sights around the old town area and bazaars. Room was noisy with a boiler or hot water pipes going off in the early hours.

Poor 2,0
Definitely NOT 5 star hotel, maybe a 3*
The hotel claims to be 5*, but it's service is more like 3*. If you ask for something, it comes after 8 to 10 hours, or even the next day. You have to keep calling to ask. We booked triple rooms and they gave us a twin room with a third pop up bedroom. When you asked to change, they make lots of excuses. Overall, very disappointing considering the good location.

Great old hotel in "local" area.Thi
This is a great old style hotel right in the middle of local life. Walk to Hagia Sofia and Palace and find many interesting shops and restaurants along the way. Hotel has a fabulous spa/hammam with one of the best massage therapists I have had. It is a bargain compared to US prices -- may seem a little high compared to local places, but definitely worth the extra few bucks. Meals were good, service very thoughtful. All in all, I'd rather be here than in any of the fancy new places in the new areas. When you come to Turkey, it is nice to actually experience it with the folks who live here.

Fab location!
Our stay at the hotel was very comfortable and we got a room with a beautiful view of the Golden Horn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a great selection of food at the breakfast buffet. The best part is that the hotel is very convenient to a lot of things. There are very good restaurants close by and public transport is within walking distance. The Spice Market is about a 5-7 minute walk and the Grand Bazaar is not far either.
