For an overnight stay, just about 16 hours. Nice clean room with a clean toilet. good internet speed. Lovely view from the skyview restaurant. Helpful staff. Breakfast really good. Negatives : Rooms facing the road are noisy. No iron or ironing board available in the hotel, laundry timings are limited.

Corner suite is nice, the bathroom is a misconstruction because... More

We arrived at 0230 using a hotel arranged transfer from the airport. At that hour of morning there was no traffic so it took less than half an hour to reach the hotel. Check-in was quick and easy, our bags taken to the room by staff and the room amenities pointed out to us. We didn't sleep well as the... More

The hotel is very nice. White, modern room with the view on the Bosphorus with a huge terrace and garden. Delicious breakfasts, elegant restaurant with panoramic views, delicious lamb, excellent service. What I disliked was the shower, every time after a shower the whole floor flush with water. The hotel is on the hill, down the hill 10 minutes and... More

We stayed at the Opera Hotel from July 14th to 19th. We had a deluxe double Bosphorus view room ( room 602 ). The room was a good size and was nicely decorated in a minimal brown-beige-white contemporary style and because the hotel is built on the side of a hill, we had a fantastic view of the Bosphorus straits,...

The Opera has a great fitness centre with all amenities, spa/sauna and pool (I didn't find many in this price range!) - if you need to use the fitness... More
