I have no words! Let the pictures speaks for the experience. It was so dreamy and the location is brilliant! It’s a palace with a nice view of the sunrise and all the restaurants are exceptional. Istanbul might be experiencing curfews but the hotel keeps you safe and it’s really a place you can enjoy! They are providing masks, it is styles well so use it and sanitizers are all over the place. I like the red brand. Thanks to all the staffs for the excellent service. To Maryam for the welcome and the assistance going to the Bosphorus view suite. To Ugur (I wish I got your name right) - he Ensure that I got the PCR test results on time the night before my departure and To Nedim - he always attends to my needs despite of his busyness in the reception. Thanks a ton and looking forward to come back with my family soon 🙏

We had a fantastic breakfast with my friend in the lobby lounge overlooking the Bosphorus. We ordered Ottoman breakfast and Arabic breakfast. It is being served as set menu of small dishes - there was a lot of food: eggs, shashuksha, fruits, falafel, panckakes, cheese etc.! The service, food, presentation - everything was out of this word. Thank you to Emre for his kind assistance and delivering great service.

We enjoyed our food at this beautiful restaurant, and beside the gorgeous view and great ambiance, our visit to this place became more special with the services and attention that we received by all the professional staff. My special thanks to Mr Gurkan Lin the supervisor who was overseeing our table and the services that we received.

We have stayed in this historic hotel during our 20th wedding anniversary trip - it was just wonderful! Stuff is so attentive (from the check in process and sanitising our luggages to proving extra masks and slippers on request - just faultless service), breakfasts are delicious (special shout out to their wonderful mimosas with bureks and omelets!) with an unbeatable view of Bosphorus, rooms are very comfy and their room service is phenomenal! Only 13 euro for a full tray of hot mezzes + they were even able to get us hot Salep drink when we requested it! Wonderful little gestures like a bottle of Prosecco and cake to mark our special occasion were also highly appreciated! Little thoughtful things like a bottle of colognia, mini baklavas on the table or extra bottles of water were really a sweet little touch and made our stay so comfortable! Cleaning was impeccable and we would definitely love to return here!

We chose to stay here for our first time in Istanbul on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. Everything from the staff, to the accommodations, to the choices of food were excellent. The salon and spa were also amazing and we really enjoyed our time there and even decided to extend our trip another week to enjoy it longer. The in room dining had amazing options for food as well that we chose to have dinner there many of the nights. Turkish tea was also always readily available! The concierge was also courteous and prompt with reservations for dinner and car service. My husband particularly loved the spa with the steam and sauna and the wonderful massage and hammam treatments! Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Istanbul.
