This hotel is a five star one but can match a four star at most. Having said that, after our week long stay in Turkey and observing the indifferent service in several hotels, the experience at this one was nice. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom which had a bathtub, bathroom slippers, hair dryer and toiletries. One... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for work. I would not choose it as tourist, because it is far from the main attractions and one can find wonderful boutique hotels closer to the centre. The hotel is a bit older but still good enough with nice breakfast and decent service. Refurbished bathrooms. Fairly spacious rooms. They should however... More

Came to Istanbul on a different business trip in September and the hotel we used (Marti Istanbul) was far nicer than this hotel for both business purposes and personal comfort. The location is not near to touristic areas and almost always requires a taxi. The meeting room was in the basement, without windows. The room itself was dark, though clean.... More

Location - OK for business travel, app. 10 km from the city centre Staff - friendly Room - average, quite spacious, modern TV I am giving the "above average" rating mainly because of the pretty nice spa. Several restaurants within walking distance. Short ride to Besiktas for a nice view of the Bosporus. Very overpriced minibar.

Was expecting a lot from the hotel due to its "five stars" hotel status. Extremely unfriendly and unhelpful reception staff who refused to assist with complaints on the smelly smoking rooms. Only one friendly staff out of so many who were standing by in the lobby busy staring into space. Oh yes, the pillows and bedsheet in the smoking rooms... More

Excellent hotel with great rooms and facilities. 5 km from Takshim Square. Taxi 15-18 TL. Spacious rooms and good location. Stay was short but very nice. Very helpful staff.... Got an excellent take away breakfast at 4.30am. Dr Sanjay Dhawan

Hotel is located more towards the business district, for more proximity to touristic attractions, other hotels are recommended. For business travels, the hotel is more than average, service is good and breakfast is above average. Overall experience is satisfactory.

This hotel has many disadvantages: -location: it is far away from the old city. So if you want to do tourism is not the best option ( probably it could be for business purposes) -staff is not as helpful as could be expected of a 5 star hotel. They are polite, but if you have a problem they do not... More

The hotel is near the bridge in Istanbul, based in a high tower overlooking the city. The rooms are not extremely large. The room I had, was equipped with a sort of mezzanine floor (2 steps up) overlooking the city. The room itself was not super clean, eg the bed smelled of a previous person. Not so nice, but when...
