It has a nice garden in which breakfast is served in mornings and tea&snacks during the day. Personnel are polite. The hotel has 5 parking spots free of charge. Prices are... More

It was not shining either but I would not say it was not clean or opposite. My room was a penthouse with some 20 steps more after elevator. Breakfast was... More

PLEASE KEEP YOUR DlSTANCE!! Nothing about a "butique hotel"!!! There isn't a double bed in the SUlT ROOM eventhough l have checked by a phone call after booking through internet with making an preference. Cockroach on the breakfast tables (l sweare!!) unenthusiastic welcome! if you are interested of a very romantic botique weekend please keep away from this hotel!!

Staying in Sisli

Neighborhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
