“Not friendly to guest comforts nd requests”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

The temperature in the rooms is centrally controlled and is very warm. This makes the room very suffocating nd unpleasant to sleep. The staff does not give any consideration to your comfort or requests. Not worth the money we spend.

Third time I have stayed and each time I have asked to change rooms because they smell of cigarette smoke. They claim only floors 1 and 2 allow smoking, yet ashtrays are in each room and on two occasions, my bedding has smelled of cigarette smoke in the morning. They try to mask the smell in communal areas using strongly scented air freshner. Both the cigarette smoke and air freshner aggravate my asthma. I won't be staying here again and doubt the colleagues I am travelling with will either. Movenpik is quieter and non smoking means just that.

Friendly staff, but hotel rooms a bit stuffy (no air con this time of year and although window opens its really noisy outside). Breakfast food "interesting" some fruits, breads and eggs but mostly salad type things. Good gym and pool including steam RM/sauna plus massage (massage payable). Good location if on business nearby and a 5min walk to underground.

Currently in house as a guest.

Rooms very clean and service from the staff is attentive and fast. Location for the business areas of Levant and Sisli great. Close to Metro but if coming for the old sites near the blue mosque this may not be the place for you.

Good hot shower good selections of gels and soaps

Full stock minibar-reasonable prices for a hotel

Internet is free and reasonably fast. Room service is fast and reasonable value. Last two days excellent but today a real let down in terms of quality and size compared to the same dish over last two days. Maybe a new chef!

what stopped me giving this excellent is

1. Only has 4 English TV channels and they are all news. Checked with reception and they confirmed that these were indeed all that were available. After a hard days work its nice to relax with a bit of TV Movies or lifestyle programmes not endless repeating news. For such a hotel is it hard for an add on? I am not here for tourism so nice to be able to relax in the room

2. Room very hot at night. Very stuffy and hard to sleep. Checked with reception and in winter in room aircon is set by sensor to only heat. Istanbul is still quite mild so the room easily got too hot. Sorted the problem but keeping the window open but had to put up with traffic noise instead.

3. Room service variations on the same dish!

Not major problems and I would stay here again. The price is very reasonable but need to address the inconsistency of room service and add to the TV package.

Room Tip: Do not use the hotel transfer to the airport quoted 69 Euro plus taxes. Local taxi max 70-80 Lira on...

I recently stayed here for two nights on business from the UK. The room was good but I found it difficult to get the right temperature. There was a large minibar selection of drinks and snacks and the room had everything one needs including a decent hair dryer! However, I was not used to people smoking inside the hotel which meant that there was a constant smell of smoke everywhere.

Unfortunately I didn't get chance to use the hotels leisure facilities but I did enjoy the breakfast and there seemed to be a better than average spread of choices including fresh fruit, pastries, cooked items etc.

Service was ok, if a little impersonal. I would stay here again if visiting Istanbul in the future.

This hotel is in a great location as its 7 mins via the metro to Taksim station and into the heart of the city, yet far enough away not to be swamped by tourists and hawkers. Local restaurants are great as is the shopping mall [if thats what you want] just up the street with plenty of restaurants in the mall.

The staff and rooms are very nice and both will make your stay very comfortable.

Room Tip: our room was 1601 and 1603 and both were very well situated to the elevator and easy access

I usually stay at this hotel when going to business trips to Istanbul. Even if our head office moved out of the hotel area I tend to stay there. They have very tasty food served to the room at a price of going to McDonalds in the nearest shopping mall. The room locking system is nice and pleasant to use. The prices are more attractive then at other hotels around. I think it is very good choice for business trips and solo. For families and couples (looking for touristic attractions) the hotel is not very well located against all that places to be visited in Istanbul.
