I have been to the best hotels in Istanbul before, but this hotel is my favourite. Location is close to the Bosphorus and in a short walk from the two most important areas (Nesantasi and Taksim). The lobby and the open air terrace lounge are one of my favourite. Rooms are well equipped. Side and clear view from the room to the famous bridge that connects Europe and Asia. Near a public green park. Service is excellent and staff are friendly.
