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.

The hotel location is excellent, near metro & walking distance from one of the newer & most elegant shopping mall in Istanbul. The hotel staff are in general relaxed and friendly. We had a high floor suite that was overlooking the Bosporus, the view was so nice, but the problem was the noise! Obviously the windows are not sound proof... More

The gym is well equipped although it wouldn't hurt updating the equipment - especially the cross-trainer. The opening hours are from 7AM to 10PM - not ideal if you have to leave early in the morning and don't come back until late in the evening. However, it is possible to ask the staff if you can use it outside opening... More

In one of the business district of Istanbul. Nice Spa, pool & gym! Good breakfast. Not convenient to go downtown historical center. Close to major shopping center. Sky bar with fantastic view. Prices ok. Rooms clean and convenient. Service so and so. Overall positive experience.

We stayed at this hotel over a congress running in Istanbul. It was perfect. Quite close to the congress center, so we could manage the traffic time more easily to get there. Our clients who paid our stay in this hotel had also booked a meeting room, where we hold a meeting indeed and it was great! Very nice breakfast... More

My third stay at this hotel in Istanbul. What strikes me about this place every time I go is the cleanliness. Everywhere is spotless and it is in a different league to many other hotels I have stayed in across the world. The rooms are light with windows that open, allowing you to change the "air conditioned" air that constantly... More

Good view from the rooms up at 17th floor, well furnished room, but do wish the breakfast would have a wider variety, and most of all, room service could have enough iron boxes - I mean, rooms cost 300 Euros and up, and there aren't as enough iron boxes?
