My husband and I stayed at this property for 5 days and it was the perfect choice for us. We loved the sleek, modern room with the fabulous rainforest shower and huge soaking tub as well as the comfortable bed. Even though it is out of the usual tourist zone, it is literally right next door to a Metro stop so we had no problem hopping on and going a few stops to Taksim Square then taking the funicular down to the Kabatas tram stop, which goes directly to Sultanahmet. The staff throughout the hotel was excellent.The hotel's concierge, Sami, was wonderfully helpful with tips and even provided us with Istanbulkarts for the Metro. We used the hotel's pool and steam/sauna every evening after returning to the hotel and it was the perfect way to unwind. We had hammam treatments through the hotel spa the first night we arrived and they were fabulous. Overall, a lovely experience!
