“Very classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Spent 2 nights on a business trip. Located in Levent, very close to famous shopping malls (Kanyon, Zorlu C.) the metro station is conveniently located just 1 min away, 4 stops and you are in Taksim. Very warm reception, fast check-in, classy room (a bit dark to be honest, zero view) super classy. Very confortable bed, super silent room, amazing shower, excellent buffet breakfast (fresh juices, lovely espresso coffee) maybe just a bit costly but overall an excellent choice, especially if you have meetings in the area.

We stayed at the Edition for 4 days and had a fabulous room, enjoyed the relaxing spa facilities but the edition hotel team catered to your every request and helped with planning places to visit and key attractions. We highly recommend a visit to the Blue Mosque, National Palace and Grand Bazaar.

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!

We stayed here on the first part of our honeymoon in Istanbul for 3 nights and it is one of those hotels that you look forward to coming back to and sometimes want to spend more time in your room than exploring the great city of Istanbul. The staff and service there is absolutely exceptional. They left a very nice arrangement of things in our room upon telling them it was our honeymoon. We used the pool, steam room, and sauna which were excellent facilities. We booked appointments for massages and the Signature Turkish Hammam at their exquisite spa and continued to receive the best service and pampering there as well. One morning we took advantage of their delicious breakfast spread...well worth the expense. Only negative comments are in regard to the location which is a bit far from the common tourist sites of Istanbul, however, we were happy to experience this area (Levant) of Istanbul as well as it was unique in itself. Also, the shower, although lovely, would leave us with a puddle of water in the middle of the bathroom after each use due to the door design. I truly do miss staying at this hotel; it was such a nice treat!!

Dear Ruby H,
We were very happy to host you during your honeymoon and fulfill your expectations of such a special time in your life!!! Congratulations again..
I am so flattered to hear that our guest rooms compete with Istanbul in terms of attractiveness.. wow, thank you!! Our design and services call for all cultural and traditional elements of Istanbul's great history and Turkish hospitality in a modern interpretation and I am happy to hear that from our ESPA signature Turkish hammam ritual to the breakfast you have had the time to enjoy all these.
As much as you do, we, as a team, also look forward to welcome you again, with your friends and family..
Best Regards,
Banu KIRMAZ

Stayed at the edition over the easter weekend for 3 nights , and like the reviews mention this hotel is luxury throughout from B&O electronics , excellent rainforest shower , comfy bed and a spacious room and the staff and service is excellent they really do the hotel proud.

The location is right by the Metro line which allowed easy traveling into Istanbul which was ideal for getting to the tourist hot spots.

Also free access to the Billionaires Club for hotel guests which is worth a visit , and rated one of the top clubs in Istanbul , however it does make you feel like your in Russia and not Istanbul and is a bit pricey however for a few hours its a pretty cool place to hangout.

Would defintley stay at the hotel again when visiting Istanbul.

Unrivalled!

This is Classy, Elegant, Outstanding, Superb and Unforgettable.

I fly through Istanbul frequently on business, usually i either stay at Ritz-Carlton or Marriott. As a business traveller provided that the Hotel is clean and i have good rest i am usually blind to everything else, but not this time around.

I stayed here last year during an hectic, stressful business trip, everything was arranged for me at a distance and it was just a matter of checking in & out. Not this time around; this guys & ladies got me out of my shell, they impress on me.

I am going to be polite and i will not mention names because everyone (i mean everyone) at this Hotel are exceptional. This guys & ladies love what they do, i mean everyone of them.

For 2 days i was in planet Z, i felt calm, relaxed and it was as if i was on a holiday.

Breakfast is a Grand affair (compliments of the Hotel).
What can i say!

I can go on & on but i will keep it short and sweet.

See you guys in July

N.B. For Breakfast it's better to buy it as part of the room package (good things dont come cheap).

Room Tip: Haggle for an upgrade for a Loft Room, it cost about 25 Euro per night extra but it's worth ever...
