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

This hotel is very conveniently located in the financial district of Istanbul... Very close to most business meetings I had to attend. 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

Stayed for a business meeting for three nights. Room was above cafe-bar and was large and comfortable. Large bathroom, well stocked, walk in shower. 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.

This hotel has everything it needs but can not be considered a 5 stars. The room was big enough, clean, pretty basic but modern. Nice bathroom with big shower. A bit noisy as the hotel is located on a vary busy street, but I slept well. What disappointed me is the service: - disappointing car service, I had to wait... More

Stayed two days (weekend), we asked for a room with view - With some luck you can have a look at the very busy Istanbul from your room. Room was very nice, big, bright, tidy and the wireless was alright. There is a gym, sauna, steam room that my partner used and she was happy with them. Breakfast was consistent... More

This hotel is not situated very centrally for most tourist destinations, but if you need to be in the neighbourhood (Besiktas area), it is a good choice. It has the appearance of a 4 star hotel (although I find the metal detector quite a dissonant in the lobby). Service is up to par and the breakfast area is pretty good.... More

The hotel is good, the rooms are large and confortable. It may be considered a bit too noisy even in the upper levels (you can hear the traffic noise during the night). The service was average. The hotel location is good, it's an ok choice for short stays.
