We stayed there as part of a coach trip in September 2013. The hotel is old and the rooms were poor to average. The staff were unhelpful with quite poor English for people in the hospitality industry - one guy couldn't even be bothered photocopying a map for us. The breakfast was okay but the one dinner we had there... More

This hotel is in a great location in Beyoglu, overlooking the water, right next to a Metro stop and a short walk from Istiklal Cadessi (the famous walking and shopping street) and about 15 minute walk from Taksim Square. It is a Turkish style hotel for business people (although I did see some families there) with a pool and spa... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of our Magic Carpet tour. The hotel is well situated. The rooms are clean. The staff are very unhelpful and extremely rude. The breakfast had lots, but no quality. If the staff were a little nicer this wouldn't be a bad place to stay. At the end of our tour we stayed in... More
