We stayed in the family room across the street from the main hotel, and it was a wonderful room, fully modern and beautifully decorated. The room has everything you need, and everything actually works, which is not always the case in Istanbul hotels! The room has a very comfortable and very big king size bed and feels very much like a real little home. The fact that it is just across the street from the main hotel contributes to the feeling that you are living in a real home and not a hotel room. We were just two people, but the room would also be great for a family. Breakfast was in the breakfast hall of the main hotel and was good and more varied than in many other Turkish hotels.
The location of the hotel is very good indeed, it is very close to everything you need, but it is still in a fairly quiet street. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
All in all, a very good hotel and a great room. I would definitely stay there again!

This hotel was very very bad and the account manager was very rude, the A/C didnt work just blowing hot air! The towels had large holes in them, it was disgusting. when i asked for refund the account manager said he wont give my money back and then they will try to charge you for using the mini bar even you have not touched anything, everything should be based on trust.. It really hurt knowing that i was on my 1 year anniversary with my wife.

The other hotel was excellent historical old preffered thats what its called the manager is called medeni very big heart!

HOTEL was lovely, very clean, bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Also the location of the hotel is perfect, it is in old city centre so you can reach everything easily. Staff from hotel was working extremely hard. They were very friendly and professional, especially I would like to say thanks to Doğuş, who was very helpful. I recommend this hotel for everyone who wants to have nice and comfortable holidays.

Friendly and helpful manager and staff. The breakfast buffé is great. The location of the hotel is perfect. Close to everything.
The roof terass is a relaxing place with great view over Haga Sophia, the Blue Moske, all boats on the Bosphore and beautiful Gûlhane park with the parakites and the storks and herons building on their nests.
The rooms are under renovation now. We had an " old" room but it was very good. The renovation didn`t disturb us.
It´s a lot of stairs so you need good legs. There was a hotel with a spa and pool very close.
