This is hotel is located in Ortakoy, a nice area at the Bosphorus full with bars and restaurants. The hotel is two doors away of Anjelique, a good restaurant and nightclub. Further it is 5 min from Reina, Supperclub and Sortie. All nice restaurants and clubs. Also some very good fish restaurants like Marina Balik are 10 min away. Considering... More

Stayed here on a work trip in Aug 2013. Located right on the Bosphorous, as the name suggests. Great location from that perspective. Right next to one of the better clubs - Sonique - which is practically a 45 sec walk out the main entrance. Rooms are nice, as are the toilets. Food was good too, though with the amount... More

As reported, the staff are indeed friendly, but not honest... I enquired about and requested a quiet room upon check in. I was told that I was assigned a quiet room and there would be no problems..

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.
