The hotel location is wonderful, 3 minutes walk to Beyazit Tram station, and 6 minutes walk to Grand Bazar. Reception/lobby area is good but chairs seats in loby seems old and should be replaced with new ones. Breakfast is good but also should be improved with more varieties. The view from 7th floor restaurant is wonderful and amazing. Standard rooms... More

18 years ago I celebrated my honeymoon in this hotel. Now and again I visited this hotel again. I had a short coffee drink in the lobby. The hotel is still the same except the guard who used to stand near the entrance with a huge moustache is not there.
