We got robbed from our safety box a total amount of $800. Our safety box was containing a higher amount and we believe that was a trick. We brought the issue and complaint to reception and any responsible person we could reach by the time, but we didn't received any acceptable respond. Now as I'm looking on the online reviews...

This hotel has a clean bed for the tourist and not much more. It's right next to Taksim Square and Beyoglu where all the hustle and bustle is in Istanbul. It's not for the business traveller. Breakfast is poor. Rooms are odd shaped and don't cater for the business traveller. I had to ask for slippers and bathroom bits and... More

Room service staff can open the safety deposit boxes and rob if they want! We noticed of $400 loss on each of our deposit box, when complained to manager, eventually no clear response, they even had no record of who had cleaned the room!
