The hotel is a fair distance from the city center and probably not for people visiting exclusively for tourism, but saying that the Metro is near by and the taxi ride (about 30 mins) is not too expensive, of particular note is the large well equipped gym in the basement, I didn't use the swimming pool, but it looked better...

Location of the hotel is excellent. Kozyatagi metro station is just across the street and you can reach anywhere in İstanbul with easy connections. Rooms are very big, clean and comfy but especially the rooms overlooking the freeway are a bit noisy. Also, I could hear everyword spoken in the bathroom of the neighbouring room from where I slept.

I traveled to Istanbul for Business in February. The rooms where spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing with a huge selection. Pity that the dining room for breakfast did not have good wifi so could not read emails over morning coffee. The service was average. There was a spa and pool which I wish I took advantage of. Its...

Best breakfast ever with a lot of food sortiments. Is near the Metro station so you get in 15-20 minutes to the ferry to cross over to the european side. Not much to see near the hotel, only a big Carrefour shopping center across the highway from where you cand get even good food (funny thing at 22:01 everything is... More

The hotel is located at the Asian Istanbul and hence you would not find lots to do within a walking distances. Nevertheless, there are few close-by shopping centers and a metro station isn't far. The free valet is good for people renting/having their own car. The hotel staff are friendly but their English language is very limited therefore do not... More

I can easily say that this hotel is the best on Asian side of Istanbul. Rooms are big enough with all the fundamental features. Bath and rooms are clean. Bath amenities are goog quality. Breakfast is excellent. I can say that the Word "excellent" is not enough for Byotell's breakfast. Staff is very helpful. The only problem about the hotel... More

I stayed here for 1 night on business. I had reasonably high hopes having stayed at the Marriott located nearby. There was nothing wrong with the rooms, but I would struggle to see this as a 5 star hotel as it didn't really have a bar! The rooms were nice and staff were friendly, but the Marriott it is not....

This is a very good choice for Asian side. It has all you need for business trip but if I could choose I'd go to Mariott next time. The stuff is very nice and very good. Breakfast is good as well. However, i had to chase the waiter to get a coffee in the morning and it was overcrowded. To... More

Let's start with the good things... 1. The hotel is reasonably clean in general. 2. The breakfast is great. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The bad things include: 1. The staff are not that helpful or willing to listen to foreigners. 2. The rooms are outdated. 3. Guests have obviously been smoking in the rooms (perhaps encouraged by the ash-trays... More

I've been about 50 nights in this hotel, and I still think that it is one of the best values for price in Istanbul! The rooms are big and warm, bathromms comfortable and cleam, breakfast is good and Internet is available everywhere!
