Stayed in this luxurious property for 5 nights in March 2015 for my first visit to this historical and cultural rich city of Istanbul The Building and Rooms: The building of the hotel is relatively old (built in 90's) but apparently well maintained and the finishings of the grounds of the main lobby and restaurants are truly luxurious.

This hotel is absolutely amazing! The venue, staff, and exceptional concierge will make for an amazing stay and visit to Istanbul (and other parts of Turkey). Please keep in mind however that prices of food and beverages if ordered within the hotel are absurdly over priced in comparison to anywhere else in the entire city.

I booked a "stay&dine at weekend" package with a garden view room and was pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to a full Bosphorus view room with two balconies. The staff was very friendly and helping especially a young Japanese lady Ayako at reception. I had another nice surprise at the day of arrival when I returned to my room after... More

Its really difficult to fault this hotel. Wonderful location, majestic architecture (don't forget to walk round the old palace area of the hotel), great food and first class service. We stayed only one night in February on a last minute deal at a surprisingly good rate. We booked an excellent city tour through the hotel that was well organised and... More

Greeted with drinks, turkish delights, chocolates and assorted nuts that are refilled daily, 2 floor Royal suite of 3 rooms, with in-room elevator, butler, golden staircase, and golden decor to match, with complete amenities and a breathtaking view of the ocean. What else could one want? Definitely felt like a royalty here. Definitely a palace. Just excellent!

Beautiful views of the bosphorus can be seen in the grounds and from some suites. The service is ex eptional as you would expect. The infinity pool is spectacular and its worth getting up early so you can have it to yourself and watch the sun rise. Breakfast is varied and wonderful to take on the terrace. I highly recommend...

Situated right along the water with exquisite vantage of the aquatic activities taking place on the Bosphorus, the hotel serves seriously well prepared food, starting with its comprehensive east meets west and back again breakfast.
