    Sultanahmet
    With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
    stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
    an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
    overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
    prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
    epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
    Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
    relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

    Ruben with all due respect I think you need to let this go.You are the only person ever to have had this problem at this hotel.Since your review not one person has said anything about this nor had they before your review. My own experience was as others have commented;that the desk staff were very pleasant,friendly and helpful. I wasn't with you when this supposedly happened so I cannot call you a liar but IMHO something just doesn't ring right about your complaint. I will always be heppy to recommend this hotel to others.
