A bit far from Beyouglu and the old city, but it is great to explore other parts of the city. We were staying at the Bosphorus and celebrated the new year there. The hotel... More

I booked the deluxe suite and was upgraded to Simon Kalfa Suite that has the best view facing the bosphorus bridge. In overall, I would say it's an exceptional hotel if not for the breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet... More

The hotel was amazing and a great find. Rooms were spacious, service superior and everyone associated with the hotel couldn't have been any more helpful. The Manager,... More
