Nothing other than the room deserves 5-stars. The room is large and comfortable with modern furniture. Moreover, the hotel is clean. But the breakfast is unsatisfactory. Swimming pool is not good either.

The good: The location is good, in a clean and civilized area of Istanbul, lots of coffe shops, stores, restaurants, banks, exchange around the hotel. The rooms are quite spacious, with a nice and simple design, appropriate to the price I payed. I was also given a room with a beautiful view of Bosforus and the bridge witch i enjoyed... More

Really good location in Besiktas at the top of one hill, the hotel has a lovely feel. The rooms were very modern and spacious, the bathroom lovely, the staff attentive and friendly, the breakfast more than adequate ... and the bar on the roof offering stunning views across into Asia. Very nice!

The room, facilities and services are the strongest points with an impressive view from the bar at the roof. The location for tourism is not the best, but the metro is just 10' away and with 10 more you can be at the Galata bridge

There is also a metro station withing 10 minutes walking distance. The hotel itself is good, but not outstanding.. The breakfast is lacking compared to similar hotels and rooms are quite decent. There wasn't anything exceptional about the... More

Good air con, coffee and tea facilities, large TV but not many English speaking channels. Minibar if you wanted it. Traffic noise not a problem on this side of hotel but less of a view. Breakfast...

Good business hotel at good location. Rooms are clean an functional. Well equipped minibar. Nice walk in shower. Breakfast and WIFI was included and worked well. Was on the 19th floor and had a nice view out of the window. The restaurant on the top floor was very nice and had a spectacular view. Food was good too.
