Once you see this hotel from outside, you like it's location. Yet I've lived there for a few days, but I this it's expensive with no worth to be honest. I've seen 3 stars hotel better than it. The furniture is good, the bathrooms is a huge disappointment, so old and bad. The view from my room toward the horn,... More

I stayed one night and was fortunate enough to be upgraded to a suite - room 1501 - which was amazing! Huge windows with an almost 180 degree view of old Istanbul and the Bosphorus. Living area, 2 tvs, the biggest jacuzzi bath I have ever seen, marble rainforest shower room, molton brown products, lovely seating and work area, free... More

HORRIBLE HOTEL! TRAVELERS BEWARE! The hotel has been under reconstruction for years. Constant banging of the hammers. No vacation naps or siestas here. Free in-room WiFi is advertised but the only reception is in the lobby. A swimming pool was advertised but it was closed. The shower was just luke warm/cold water every day. The hot breakfast items were served... More

Stayed a couple of nights with friends. This hotel has a great location as many reviewers have mentioned, right in the middle of a busy shopping area within walking distance. Taking a taxi to visit Sultanahmet historical area will not break the bank and is much more comfortable than public transport. Don’t forget to visit the top floor restaurant with... More

Amazing view of the Bospherus sea and Istanbul. Hands down for amazing rooms, amenities, and service. Taksim square is less than 5 min of walking and the night life was amazing. Beware though of beggars in Taksim. Breakfast buffet was yummy as well!
