Hotel with a history, still maintained in sync with its past. Even the standard rooms are lovely with a shower that is better than most spas. Friendly attentive staff. Comfortable luxury. All of the common areas are splendid. The breakfast includes more than expected items.

We spent 3 nights here: it's a beautiful old hotel, and very tastefully renovated. The room was clean and comfortable, and spacious enough, though a tad noisy late at night given its proximity to some nightclubs. No mini-bar (Covid-related, I imagine) and also no coffee machine - just Nescafe, in the rooms. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the lobby and public areas, and the historical photos and mementos scattered throughout the hotel. Staff were pleasant, though we had little interaction as we didn't take breakfast or dine there. Excellent location - my favourite part of Istanbul.

Pros: Nice view with a little, cozy balcony. Coffee machine in the room. Big, clean and comfortable bed. Cons: I had the worst experience with the shower. Water would leak from the ceiling through what looked like a big mold stain. I contacted the reception and they sent someone upstairs. As expected, they could not solve the problem but they did not contact us to mend the situation. After a long wait, I contacted them again and they allowed my wife to use another shower. Overall, we were very disappointed with the way they managed our problem. Underwhelming experience for a 4-star hotel, definitely unacceptable for such a historic 5-star hotel. The staff didn't seem to care too much about their guests. It's as if we were given the keys to a nice room and that was it. There was nothing in the mini-bar. I think this is self-explanatory, considering we booked a King Deluxe Room. Would not recommend.

Staying at this hotel is like travel in time. The vintage furniture is beautiful and of great quality which we won’t find these days. The hotel unfold the aura of old days, you can really feel like in Agatha’s Christie novels. The staff is very professional. Rooms are nice, bathroom looks charming with vintage bathtub. However bathroom could be bigger. Location is perfect - walking distance to Taksim, Karakoy or Galata Tower.

We were on a loooong layover in Istanbul coming from Asia and showed up there at 06:00 AM... hours and hours before the 3pm check in. The staff were SO kind and gracious as to find us a room at the last minute... AND to have the kitchen opened for us so two weary travelers just off a long red eye could eat and drink. The kitchen staff were so wonderful and accommodating to our odd dietary needs and put out a massive spread of amazing fresh food from fruits and veg to olives and honeycomb and breads and pastries and cold cuts and delicious coffees. The room was wonderful- clean and well appointed with a beautiful view of the Golden Horn. Our server in the Orient Bar Mehmet went out of his way to make us wonderful drinks and share with us proper Turkish drinking protocols! The only thing I would change would be wheeling the television out of the bar as a loud football match no one was watching clashed with the ambiance of the place. Thank you for everything! We will definitely stay again on our way through Istanbul!
