“A nice experience in Anatolian part of Istanbul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The hotel represents what you can expect of a basic 5star hotel. The rooms
are ok but there is nothing that would surprise positively.

I would like to mention that the breakfast offers a rich variety of items.
The pastry is really excellent.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

The first impression was good. Helpful staff, clean and spacious room and bathroom.
Yet I have noticed some small inconveniences.
The smell in the bathroom was sometimes unpleasant, which was annoying in a hotel rated 5 stars. The air-conditioning worked in an automatic and hard to predict way, according to instruction you should call the reception desk to adjust it - ??? to be honest - I didn't try, it was no big deal. When the wind was strong, it wheezed through the windows (well, I had a room on top floor...).
Their shuttle service to Ataturk airport is more expensive than a taxi.

There were also nice things.
I liked the breakfast very much. The choice was good and all things I tried were tasty, especially cheese.
The complimental tee, coffee and water in the room made good impression.
They have fast internet in rooms, the VoIP calls were clear, but the WiFi network is open and insecure. You must have the login and password to get through using your browser, though. OK, I'm a security maniac.
I turned out that the metro station is very close to this hotel, so you can easily travel to the harbor and use the ferry to get to European part of the city.
If you arrive to the Ataturk airport I would advise to take a taxi to and from the harbors and cross the Bosphorus by a ferry.

Room Tip: not on the top floor

I stayed in Byotell for one night in November 2012. It is a hotel in the Asian side of Istanbul (you have to take very well care of where you stay according to your schedule, since the traffic can really kill you in Istanbul).
The hotel seems very new and clean. The room is spatious and well decorated, the breakfast is nice and the personnel helpful.
I can say that I am perfectly satisfied with the hotel, I would stay again.

Good location if you are for business on the Asian side of Istanbul. Over all good and spacy rooms but sourroundings of the hotel are quite boring, difficult to go to the European side because sitting constantly in traffic trying to cross the bridge. Alternativly you can take a taxi to the harbout and cross with ferry to the other side.

I got a really nice suite this time, and I really felt comfortable there - but some small things must really change or enhance: the mold in the corners of the bathroom should not be there, aircondition and smell in the rooms can be enhanced ,

Very good standard hotel great rooms and food. Good gym and facilities. Area is OK but probably not on the main stream tourist routes. Room are well appointed and like many Turkish hotels does not serve alcohol.
