We were in Istanbul from 26 to 30th of September. When our tour leader
took us to the hotel, we didn't expect to encounter such a nice hotel.
Although we arrived there at 9 o'clock a.m, the receptionist quickly
guided us to our room, which was clean, large, and bright. First we
had some problems with our safety box, but the service manager
immediately solved our problem. Later in that day when the shower head
of the bathroom was out of order, in less than half an hour they
changed it. The rooms were being cleaned daily and in exact time. We
had a triple room and towels and sanitary things were being charged
every day for three persons. The room's mini bar was perfect and it
was interesting that anything only cost one dollar and it did not
differentiate with the prices of other stores and markets outside the
hotel. There was also a kettle with a complete set of coffee and tea.
The breakfast was awesome first for the incredible view of the see and
sounds of the birds which were trying to pick small pieces of bread
from guests' hands and second, for the perfect menu which entailed
both warm and cold food which satisfied any guest with any kind of
taste. At the end, I should mention some advantages like: availability
of exchange centers, restaurants, cafeterias, fast foods, coffee
shops, drug stores, bus station, subway, street car, and taxi in
50-500 meters around the hotel. all these advantages and facilities
make me satisfied for choosing this hotel

I stayed for two nights only while on a business trip. It's around half an hour from Ataturk airport and be sure to have the hotel phone number as the taxi drivers need to check the correct roads to take (this is normal!). The staff are very friendly, and the hotel accepts Euros if needed. The room was comfortable and huge - it was a twin bedded room, and although I looked out over the road outside, surprisingly quiet. The shower was lovely and there is a kettle and tea and coffee available, though I would take some yourself for a long stay as they were not replenished. All in all it was very good value - there is a huge choice for breakfast - the fried courgettes were fantastic! The view from the breakfast room is maybe not as good as claimed, but that is a very minor niggle.
