Hotel is good onlyfor meeting not for tourist atall becaz far from mall, taksim, sultan ahmet. Worst option for iranian tourist. Many arab people stay there. Poor breakfast. Price 300 euro/night for double bed.

I would rate the property at 3 star. I was there is low season (March 10-March 18th) and the property was relatively empty! As a result of this, the property had cancelled their shuttle service since the hotel guest count was low according to the manager. They also had reduced room service and cleaning crew, but were charging normal standard... More

I was booked in this hotel as the company I was visiting has it's office barely 5 minutes away. This is my first stay at this hotel. The hotel is in the commercial district with not many tourist attractions around. The check-in was smooth enough although the reception staff needs some training in English. The bell boys were very enthusiastic... More

Looks reasonable initially but I would agree with some of the earlier reviews that elude to the lack of service one would normally receive in a 5 star hotel Paid for B+B inclusive; expected an additional room service charge for having breakfast in our room - did NOT expect to pay additional 56TL ie the price of 2 additional breakfasts...

I was a bit worried about this hotel after reading previous reviews but I had a very pleasant stay albeit with a few caveats. The building is slightly dated and would never have won any architectural awards, even in its heyday, but I think this complaint has been exaggerated slightly by other reviewers. The location is very central although I... More

Second visit to this hotel and I guess I'm starting to like this hotel, though it's not one of the fancy properties that you would come across the globe. The best part of this hotel is that most of the trade-shows, exhibitions, seminars are held here, so staying at the hotel makes sense as the bother of travelling by taxi... More

The rooms are nice and spacious. Bathroom could do with a bit of bleach or new sealant around bath. Reception staff could be friendlier. Wifi is free. Breakfast was fine. I was woken up very early by a large crown of noisey Chinese tourists but thats not the hotels fault. Good value hotel compared to the UK

The hotel gives a bad representation of the hospitality of Istanbul and the Turkish people. Although the hotel is rated as 5-stars, it is the equivalent of 3 stars in Dubai or Europe. The rooms are clean but not fancy or up-to 5-star standard. The breakfast is poor, glasses and plates are not clean, no variety of food, staff are... More
