    A note in the room saying that drinks and food should not be braught in the room. This is just to force people to use the over priced minibar. No free coffe was provided in room!

    The building is fabulous as is the location. Really central to all that you want to see in Istanbul. Vibrant area in day but quiet at night - I have stayed in other hotels in Istanbul and all night traffic noise can be a problem. Interior of the hotel is very grand and the delux rooms are huge - again a surprise as other hotels I have stayed in have been tiny. Good breakfast. Staff were great, we travelled with a toddler and they were really helpful. I would say this is an excellent 4 star hotel and very good value for money in a great llocation - beats the other 4 star hotels I have stayed in in Istanbul.

    The bathrooms need updating - we had mould around the bath.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cleaning service staff were the best, just fantastic people. Room service food was not bad at all. The positioning of the hotel is excellent and close to the tram, port for the ferries and all other travel. Would stay there again but would upgrade the room from standard to maybe delux.

    Room was a little small I expected bigger for a five star and if you look at the web site the rooms look bigger.

    Very good

    The location was very good: walking distance from Blue Mosque, Haghia Sofia, from The Bosforus Cruises. The hotel is very comfortable, rooms are spacious,

    I was disappointed with the pool, I was expecting a bigger pool, more sumptuous. It doesn t match with the rest of the hotel

    Guest rating

    nothing worth saying

    This hotel should not be rated as a 5 one, it should be 3 stars at max. Rooms were not clean, furniture is old, and breakfast is very limited, no fresh juice, no baby chair, no friendly staff, A/C is very weak. Bathrooms are not being cleaned well, swimming pool is very small and water circulation is weak and cold water. This is the worst hotel I stayed on during my trip to turkey.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Great location spacious rooms and helpful staff and fabulous view over the Bosphorous from the restaurant on the 6th floor

    Breakfast was very average for a 5 star hotel. The Hotel Pool is small and quite cold (wasn't heated) ideal if you wanted a dip after your sauna.

    Guest rating

    Location near to Spice Market and Galata Bridge. coffee shop in the hotel served very good orange jucie and teh staff were very good in this coffee shop.

    Booking said free transfer from Airport but there was no free transfer. It is more like a 3 or 4* hotel not a 5* hotel. Drink in the hotel was very expensive

  • 7.4
    Very good

    best is the location in the center : all is accessible on foot ! - view at the roof restaurant/bar is wonderful - hotel in ottoman style - size of the room : very big surface

    they forgot to clean the room 1 day on 3 and we had to ask several time for getting towels change (only finally as it was late in the day) - breakfast could be improved
