“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Have stayed here twice, and the staff and rooms are truly fantastic. Really classy, modern and sophisticated. Can't go wrong. Not really for families, more for business. Don't do the drinks package unless you really need it, even if they try to upsell you when you check in.

Stayed here on vacation in May and thoroughly enjoyed the corner suite! Great rooms lovely service only downside is the location is a bit of a distance from touristy areas and you are always in the flow of traffic which doenst make life easy! All in all brilliant hotel and must stay in Istanbul!

This was the second time I have stayed at this property (I have also enjoyed a simply excellent "Old Fashioned" at the London Edition) and think it is a great business hotel. It is not a great location for tourists as it its far from many attractions. It is a 10 minute cab ride from the Bosphorus though so which is nice. It is mostly a business district which is perfect for me.

The rooms are large, the staff really make an effort and the spa downstairs is perfect for unwinding after a hard days work.

The only 2 small gripes:

1) They seem to have an issue with their on site dining choices. The first time I went their restaurant Cipriani was closed so you could only eat at the bar. This time the bar was closed and Cipriani was used as the bar with only a limited food menu.
2) It is a long way from the hotel if you happen to hit rush hour. A usual 20 minute taxi ride can take 90 minutes.

Having said that, it is a modern, well furnished and kitted out hotel with excellent staff. I will certainly stay there again when I return to this great city.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel using my Marriott Reward points for two nights prior to a cruise. As it was our 25th anniversary we did it right and asked Sami the concierge to arrange a car to pick us up from Ataturk airport, and to arrange for a guided tour the day after arrival. Arrival arrangements were perfect and staff greeted us on the steps of the hotel. Sami and the other concierges and bellmen were the best of any hotel I've ever stayed at. The personal guided tour we had arranged was very good. The only part we didn't like was the hotel-recommended guide taking us to a rug market for a "coffee break"; subjected to a sales pitch. This hotel (e.g. breakfast) is expensive; don't be surprised. Rooms are nice and quiet with huge bathrooms and walk-in rainfall shower. It's not near the old city really, but taxis are cheap and plentiful in Istanbul. I recommend it; this isn't a Holiday Inn - $$.

I stayed only one night at this hotel and it was excellent. It is a lifestyle boutique property with all the amenities expected of a luxury hotel. I had a loft room which was very spacious, I would say around 45 to 50 sqm with a spacious bathroom featuring a walk-in shower. Bang and Olufsen TV and telephone sets add to the funkiness of the place. Staff at the reception were extremely professional and friendly, less so though at the Cipriani where breakfast was served. All in all a great hotel to be recommended.

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.
