Our stay was in a room which wasn't still renovated but it has wonderful Bosphorous view. It wasn't our first stay at that hotel. I missed the view from the lobby because the renovation works during our stay. Hope to have a chance to visit it again when the renovations are done.

It is always great when one returns to a hotel after a long absence to find that things are as good as they were the last time. The view of the Bosporus from this hotel are by location and elevation unchangeably great. However, it was heartening to see that the service level, the friendliness and the professionalism of the staff... More

Stayed in spacious and comfortable room with a partial view of the famous Bosphorus! Although, the hotel is going through refurbishment at the moment, it did not impact our stay. Enjoyed drinks in The Ambassadeurs bar furnished with nice big armchairs (club style) facing the busy Bosphorus, a vibrant backdrop and a great talking point!. The staff there is very... More

Ive stayed in this hotel last times 4 years ago. And during this stay Ive truly enjoyed the attitude. Don't think hotel design has changed a lot, but the current level of service is very high and much better than in many Istanbul 5* hotels.

I have stayed in that hotel for many times in different years and different seasons . I would say, the way they make you feel comfortable has never changed. it is perfect value for money with comparatively easy access to many parts of the city. Regards

Hotel was nice, the service was nice, room was cleaned. No worries about quality of 5*! All on its place. I liked the thing that we was accommodated in sea view room, but paid for normal! But in case if you want shopping or travelling around the city, you better go to other hotel
