The same problem I have came across such as lack of staff, cleanesss of the rooms and under the beds in particular, service provided by hotel staff, poor breakfast choices, unprofessional front desk and as usual no concierge person to talk to.

My friends and I stayed here for two nights at the end of our visit to Turkey. Though we arrived well before the usual check-in time, we only had a short wait before our room was ready, which was nice. As there were three of us we were able to get a twin room with a rollaway. Ours was a... More

The setting was great but the service was indifferent at best. I was put into their annex which aligns the busy front street. There were six of us in our party and everyone had issues with their magnetic card swipe keys. Had to have the cards replaced multiple times. Decor and furniture in rooms feels used and dated.

It's a nice, calm & clean hotel. In the heart of a very active area (Ortakoy), this area is one of the most beautiful places in Istanbul, full of restaurants, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Kind, friendly and helpful staff. a very nice view on the Bosphorus from the Terrace, Restaurant and the bar. Good and free WIFI.
