A few notes from my terrible experience with this hotel: 1) There was a booking mistake through Expedia that the hotel was willing to even discuss or come to a compromise on 2) The hotel smells like smoke. I could hardly breathe in my own room even though it was a non-smoking room 3) I'm 5'4" and was too tall... More

This hotel can be budget, nicely renovated and perhaps even breakfast is something to write home about. But this goes to show how a simple mistake can ruin your hotel experience - the walls are wafer-thin. I have been literally having rather undesired mind images of my neighbours' exact activities for the past two hours. If you insist on using... More

We stayed here 5 days after cruising Capadocia. The hotel is located in a cute area outside of Istanbul and unless you want to drive for an hour to go to the center the easiest way is to take the ferry to almost the center. The ferries are 20 min walking from the hotel. Breakfast: better than other hotels in... More

My family and I stayed at the Elite hotel from 24th April - 27th April 2014. We had a short stay as we came over for the weekend for my Cousin's Wedding. I stayed with my husband and as a family we had 3 other rooms booked. This hotel was lovely and very modern. From when we arrived very late... More

We were visiting Istanbul and decided to stay here, well, wasn't that the worst mistake I made... Upon arrival, we were greeted by the most miserable staff who were reluctant to show us to our room until a full payment of £180 had been made which was the daily rate for a superior room. We were then escorted to our... More

A nice hotel overall. I wouldn't call it four-star exactly although they are reaching for it. The rooftop terrace is lovely. We were there for a wedding and the reception was on the terrace and it was fabulous - very memorable. However during our stay we were fortunate that our air-conditioning was working. Several of the other guests had rooms... More

Rooms weren't what we expected, one room was good, but the other two stank of smoke and were so much smaller than the good room, even though they were the same price and specification. Also, we got billed for a phone call that wasn't made since we hadn't got back at that time and at the night before we were... More

The hotel is located in an alleyway off the main road.Make sure your driver has the address or knows where it is.Our driver spent near an hour looking for it until I gave him the address.A majority of people in Istanbul do NOT speak English,so communication is a big problem.At the hotel only 1 receptionist speaks fluent English,so it was...
