Hotel Empress Zoe - Istanbul

Rick's Istanbul guidebook mentions the Hotel Empress Zoe. I have read in other sources that there is/was construction near the hotel. Has the construction stopped?

Has anyone stayed there lately? How is it?

I was there in April/May of this year at the Zoe...there may have been construction but I didn't hear a thing! The only sound that is distinctive is the prayers from the mosque across the street but I think that added to the experience. A great hotel; excellent staff and breakfast. Easy walking distance to Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Say hi to Bobby the cat...he was my buddy!

We stayed there in October. I don't recall any construction. We had no trouble coming and going. Enjoy - what a fabulous hotel! We loved it!
