Very nice hotel, just several minutes to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Pictures correspond reality. Wonderfull seaview from terrace. Also really easy access by the car. If there is some problem (even if not :), manager is ready to sort it out immediately. Anyway the way to serve the customers is the one thing I would highlight the most.

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights and highly recommend this hotel. Firstly, the staff are incredibly helpful. My bags were carried to my room on arrival, all my questions (and there were many!) were answered knowledgeably and they even helped me book a fantastic hotel for my subsequent travel to Bodrum. The room itself was decent sized -... More
