Proximity to the tram station will be a key reason for me to pick this hotel. It is also near the airport and you will be able to skip the bad traffic which happen quite offen in town. Rooms are a bit on the small side and it does look a bit dated. A in house spa with Turkish Bath.... More

We recently spent a week in this hotel and really felt at the end of our week that we had chosen well. The facilities were spot on and the staff were really helpful in making our stay thoroughly enjoyable. This Hotel is a fair bit away from the centre of Istanbul but as we found Istanbul to be like London... More

Very friendly staff, good location (tram is right in front and takes you to the Blue Mosque, Dolmabahce Palace and Topkapi palace in no time! It's also convenient to travel back to the airport). The tram also goes directly to the grand bazaar which is stunning. I really recommend this hotel, gold value for money!

Staff were excellent and did everything to make our stay comfortable, even with an early arrival (notified in advance). Lovely pool area. I wish we'd known we could book tours through the hotel, this wasn't clear, as there was one place off the beaten track we'd have liked to get to. However the Tram stop is very convenient for all...
