Great location but bar not utilised to maximum potential. Hallways - stained and tired décor and carpets Rooms - Standard rooms are small, again the décor is tired. Bathroom - the step over and in bath for a shower is a hazard Breakfast - The fruit every morning was not fresh - oranges and grapefruits tasted gone off, the coffee... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on the last leg of our Turkey holiday. Location: We couldn't have chosen a better bosphorus location hotel! The property is just a little farther ahead from the Four Seasons and Kempinski Ciragan Palace, right on the Bosphorus and right next to the bustling Ortakoy market area. The popular club/restaurant Angelique... More

Lovely decorated and very spacious rooms. I loved the walk-in cupboard. It is a pity that the interconnected family rooms dont have a Bosphorous view, though. It was disappointing how overpriced breakfast was. Hotel is close to the Bosp bridge, very nice area, but far from Sultanahmed.

The first thing to mention is the fantastic view on the Bosphorus from the restaurant terrace. Enjoy this view in the morning for breakfast and then again in the evening for dinner or a drink. The food in the restaurant is excellent. The staff is friendly.

Lovely room decoration, very fresh, very stylish and all new. Very spacious and very confortable rooms. Good internet connection. The location is good even though some of the restaurants around are a bit fishy.
