We spent eight nights at Star Holiday Hotel. it's an extraordinary hotel in an exceptional location for viewing the major historical stories of Istanbul.
The service really is extraordinary. Most of the staff work together seamleslessly. They are also genuinely nice people who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. the receptionist is more than helpful..He offered us free tea when we arrive
Lots of nice touches like robes, slippers, wonderful toiletries, beautiful bathrooms and good reading lights. Even the smallest rooms are very good-sized ; was huge-- with a chair, writing desk.
The Sunday brunches are just spectacular; we had the "regular" one, and then the Easter brunch a week later. The Food and Beverage Ladies brought some of the "specialties" to our table to try, and the She milled around and explained the preparation of some of the dishes.
Lastly, all staff is VERY knowledgeable... their recommendations are worth taking. They endorsed our thought of going to the Korfez restaurant for lunch (on the Bosphorous-- they send their boat to meet you) -- it was a memorable experience. They also purchased our plane tickets to Cappadocia-- half the price of buying them in the US, AND you can change them with no penalty when purchased in Turkey.
Thank you Ms. Aliyeee and receptionist
We will also be back....
