The hotel staff were AMAZING! My husband forgot his phone in a taxi on one of the occasions we arrived back at the hotel. The hotel staff went above and beyond to track down the driver and get the phone returned safely in a short time. They kept his mind at ease throughout, ensuring him they'd definitely recover it, which they did. I was so impressed at how quickly they stepped in and got the issue resolved. The area was nice - quite a few bars and restaurants in walking distance, and a convenience store too. It was easy to get a taxi outside the hotel and get anywhere in the city. Apart from that, it was what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. Overall, we were happy with our stay.
The hotel turns into a night club from around 10pm until about 3am. The first night we arrived it was so busy and loud outside (we arrived from the airport around 1am) that we thought the shuttle had brought us to the wrong place. On our last night, the couple we travelled with could hear the music and they struggled to sleep (on floor 1). Our room was further down the corridor (on floor 2) and we didn't hear it. If you're a light sleeper, ask for a quiet room far from the night club action! We had breakfast at the hotel on one of the mornings (wasn't included in our rate) and it was average considering the price (about €25pp). I'd recommend getting a great Turkish breakfast somewhere on the Bosporus. The area only a 25 min taxi ride from the hotel and it's much cheaper.
Room was nice, bed was super comfortable.
Breakfast is extremely limited. Also, the rooms are a little old and need an update. There are no USB plugs and the TV only has Turkish channels. All the light switches, AC, and bathroom handle were not indicated and marked properly, making it hard to know how to operate them. The overall hotel is too dark, especially the elevators, and at night it gets a little noisy.
Everything was perfect. Had a quiet room as I requested before my arrival. Wonderful Hotel. I recommend it .
the Staff were very friendly. location was great . andl close to lots of cafes and restaurants
The room was not cleaned well. it was very dark in the lift and the hotel in general.
Everything ! Absolutely perfect
