Unbelievable. Got swindled into paying triple the online rate. And then was told the front desk could do nothing about it. They refused even to print a receipt...had to call police to get a receipt., but more than all that, the place is a dive. 'Spacious king room with spectacular views in Sultanahmet' was actually a closet in Fatih with... More

Our proposal : better not to stay in this hotel. Take care of your belongings ! Breakfast: enough , but not tasty as Turkish kitchen is. Location : walking distance to the main places of tourist interest such as Sultanahmet, Topkapi Palace.... But. Aksaray is "Commercial" region of Istanbul as Grand Bazar is there.

The place was a proper 4 star hotel. The entrance design and the restaurant is a bit cramped but the service food quality is good. I never got time to try out the pool but it looked pretty different from others. We stayed at the suite and it was quite luxurious. The room is good in size and we had... More

I stayed for 3 wks, working on a training program we held at the hotel. I was totally blown by how Immaculately clean they keep the place. The staff is very courteous, and extremely accommodating. Room service top notch. I must mention Gultan the lady who cleaned my room efficiently. I really appreciated the Xmas decoration considering it´s a predominantly... More

It was a perfect stay and the staff were very polite and always ready to assist. Their breakfast Buffett was very tasty and well presented. The rooms though not big but was well kept and very clean. I will recommend it for any one who wants to visit Istanbul .

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is clean & comfortable & the staff are reasonably helpful. Location is good with a tram stop just around the corner or you can walk into the old town (approx 1500m). The rooms are a bit small & soundproofing isn't great. We were disturbed by traffic noise but this may be less of... More

We stayed 4 nights here 7-10 July, 2014. Firstly, the staff need to be fluent in English as, except for one duty manager, the others hardly spoke English. We had booked 2 triple sharing rooms but had to request for a change as one room could barely accommodate 2 persons! Our Son's suitcase was delayed so it was meant to... More
