This charming hotel located on the waterfront offers spectacular views of Bosphorus. We spent one night with my wife (wedding anniversary), enjoyed the dinner, breakfast and watching the ships passing by in front of the terrace of our room. The service is fairly good too. Nice place for a romantic escape.

Stayed there one time for my birthday (terrace room), the service was amazing and the view was breathtaking.. It is a bit far away from the city but they have a lobster (small boat) and you can use it for having a transfer to the european part of the city, where it is more lively. I also had my wedding...

The rooms on the bosphore are the best eapecialy on the first floor. The staff are friendly. The only problem in the hotel is the sound of music when there is a wedding in the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

This hotel was most disappointing. It was far from luxury. After seeing the awards on the wall dating back to 2005 etc we realized this once great place has way past it's hey day.. Our room & our children's room were really nothing special. There was a lovely view of the Bosphorous but that was about it. Everything felt "old"... More

Unfortunately I can only review as an event location and in this aspect can definitely give 5 stars. Located directly at the waters edge the location overlooking the European coast line is superb. The staff are highly professional and the quality of the food and drink was 1st class.

We booked this hotel for four nights for the second part of our week's stay in Istanbul. We had spent the first 3 nights in a hotel in the heart of the old city and the customer service we received in the first hotel was second to none and was in stark contrast to that which we received at the...

This is a nice option if you're in Istanbul for a good couple of days (any less and you'll just be exhausted by all the travelling back and forth) and want to take it easy at a quiet location that's away (far away) from the hussle and bussle. That being said other than the lovely view and decent facilities, the... More

A lovely hotel and location, although if you want to spend time in the city it takes about an hour's travel to get there cheaply. First the bus (take bus nr 15 p) near the hotel to Uskadar, then a Ferry to Eminuno, then the Tram (T1) to the old area and Bazaar or you can go by private water... More

Never felt more like a princess! Getting up in the morning, watching dolphins jump in the river before breakfast! Beautiful rooms, great staff and service, and the food (both breakfast and dinner) was amazing! I am looking forward to going back there again!
