Cannot fault the service or the standard of the hotel. If you get a view of the river it is great. An earlier review mentioned no chairs on balcony and that is still the case - however housekeeping brought two conference chairs and a small table to replace the desk chair and stool we had taken out. If you want tea/coffee making equipment in your room ask room service and they will deliver (free of charge). Hotel prices are expensive (but it is a top class hotel) - but was surprised when two scoops of ice cream by pool cost TL 20 (about £7.20). It is a good way out of central town. Get a cab to nearest metro station (TL 8) and then three lots of TL 3 to get into old town - get map from guest services.
