This is one of the most physically beautiful hotels we have ever seen. It is a Palace directly on the Bosphorus. Immaculately kept. Marble. Fountains. Inviting swimming pool. Dinner area set up right on the water. We stayed in a suite in the Palace with views directly onto the Bosphorus. It is a magical setting, especially in the evening with the moonlight literally shimmering on the water. The food is excellent. I have read other reviews concerning uneven service. I found that we had to try harder than usual (perhaps than we should have needed to) to communicate specific, unusual requests. For example, we asked for skim milk; instead we got yogurt milk. We just shrugged our shoulders and chalked this up to traveling in a foreign country. The staff is always ready to help and is quite friendly. If you are looking for extra fun, take a private boat ride that departs from the hotel. You won't forget it - ever!
One average point: I received a so-so spa treatment. Nothing special.
If you are on a budget, don't stay here. If you are just looking for an amazing experience in Istanbul, this is your hotel.
