This is quite a small, but fairly luxurious hotel (and so it should be at its prices). The location is very good if you want to be away from noise and action. The views of the Bosphorus are attractive, but most rooms which advertise them (and for which a significant uplift is charged) have marginal side views over adjacent buildings... More

We had a wonderful weekend in Istanbul in spite of the cold temperature and in spite of being scammed by a taxi driver outside the Grand Bazarre. Caution: these drivers are gangsters and will rob you blind if you get into the cab. That being said, it was a pleasure to get back to the warm, hospitable, caring and highly... More

Excellent location. Ortakoy is full of pubs and night activity, yet the hotel is strategically located so you are close to the fun but not get disturbed by it. Very nice cafes and restaurants very close. Also it's easy and cheap to go to tourist areas by taxi or public transport. Nice modern deco. Lobby bar is very cozy to... More

Overall 4 days stay was not worth for the money with bathrooms with poor designs and not satisfactory room service. Staff were in general kind. The Best part of stay was the Concierge Service. The concierge service we got in the hotel is one of the best we received in my 3 decades of travel experience.

I enjoyed my experience at this hotel as it was close proximity to all shopping facilities. The staff were very friendly. The Bosphorus Bridge view was captivating and thrilling. The service of the hotel was highly rewarding. I will book my hotel again in the near future without any hesitations. Many thanks for making this a pleasurable stay.

Stayed at the hotel for a 50th birthday celebration for 3 nights. It is a little out of the main city but so much better for that. Take a tram to the end of the line and walk! Perfect location to go back to at the end of a busy day admiring all Instanbul has to offer. A little oasis... More

A very well appointed hotel in a beautiful position on the Bosphorous. Very courteous, friendly staff. Rooms are very well appointed. Food of good/very good quality. The only 2 areas of improvement are: the wifi coverage is not always perfect in the rooms & some staff - not those at reception - speak very little English.
