A very nice hotel, looks fairly new and is well appointed. Staff were friendly and very accommodating, rooms well appointed, and great facilities. They even have dedicated smoking rooms. The swimming pools are great, one for swimming laps, and one for general pool activities.
But there are a couple of negatives. The gym in the hotel is well equipped, but is apparently the community gym, there is no way all those steroid junkies were hotel guests - which put me off using the facility. Second, if you're an English native speaker, the only English language channels on the tv are CNN and BBC World... really, this is completely ridiculous... I've stayed in several hotels in Istanbul, and this is the only one that doesn't have general entertainment channels in English. Another negative, the breakfast at the restaurant is awful - unless you're Turkish I guess. Even the coffee wasn't that great.
