Only booked this hotel after the Bahaus Hostel was fully booked for the night that I needed. The Sur Pension was a little difficult to find, even though on the map it had appeared easy. For those not in the know regarding Istanbul, there are hotels etc that have a toilet and attached to the wall is a shower hose. This small toilet room becomes a showering room also. Another person I was with was really upset by this. The Bahaus did not have these problems. The rooms at the Sur Pension are tiny.
This was my first preference and was very happy with this hostel. I did not realise that other hostels/hotels have a toilet in a small room and attached to the wall is a shower hose for showering (only). The Bahaus had proper shower cubicles in large bathrooms. The Bahaus also had a great free breakfast with a lovely view on the roof.
Great Location, Very Friendly staff and will be going back on my way home.
