Amazing place, would be nice to visit late in afternoon, so you can see the view in evening too. 4D cinema shows famous places in Istanbul, so you can get a very good idea about the city just from 8 minutes watching the movie.

Excellent panoramic view of the city that you can't have anywhere else in Istanbul. With this panoramic view you can eat something or drink coffee. There is a souveniour shop and there are pretty nice souveniors. Beside panoramic view I strongly recommend 5D helicopter tour to historical places of Istanbul, it is amazing. It takes 15 minutes, you can see... More

The view from the top of the building is spectacular to every direction over Istanbul. There's not much else except souvenir shop and a restaurant. The young staff in the shop was very bored with themselves and should be doing something else than taking care of customers.

Nothing special about the mall, go all the way to the top & book the observation deck without the wax museum. Our ticket for the observation deck + wax museum was 28 TL per adult & our 4 year old was free of charge. The deck is lovely, nice and calm, beautiful view with a simple cafe, we only had... More

Surprisingly, this was one of our son's favorite tourist spots. We did not do any of the simulator/photo options. We simply went to the observatory for the view of Istanbul. Beautiful.

This is a must visit place. The views at the top are spectacular spanning the whole of Istanbul and the sky ride is thrilling, a 3D simulator taking you on a 10 helicopter ride around Istanbul visiting all the historical places, it even goes inside all the buildings. I loved it and would definitely visit it again.

At beginning, the mall was boring with no attraction. It is simply a plenty of shops. And then we went to the observation deck upstairs. In the 56th floor. It was willow. We saw entire Istanbul. Everything was down. After that was the 4d tour. We "flied" all over Istanbul and saw more and more place.. It is highly recommended... More

This was a neat thing to do if you are staying in the Levant area of town but not worth a trip just to see this. Quick journey to the top. Needs to be a clear day. It was a short line when we visited, otherwise I'm not sure it would be worth the effort.
