Location: I picked this hotel because of its proximity to the airport. I had an overnight cOnnection in Istanbul. The taxi ride from the airportto the hotel was still about 10-15minutes (and cost aprox 20TL). I would have expected To be closer but it seems this is the closest upmarket hotel. If you have some extra time during the day, the Galleria mall is a 2min walk in front of the hotel and has many international brands (Starbucks, Lacoste, Adidas, Emporio...) and also a great food court with several turkish restaurants. Other than that there isn t much. So definitely don t stay here ifyou re planning on visitin Istanbul as it s about a 20min taxi ride into the city..
Check-In: as quick as it gets. Walked to reception, my reservation was fine an was handed the key along with a 24hr wifi voucher (it s 15TL but i got it for free as a SPG Gold member)
Room: well appointed, shower worked fine. Pillows wre notto my liking (they were very soft) but that s a matter of taste. There really is no view that one could ask for. I had sea view but it s nothing special...
