I just returned home from staying at this hotel for the past 2 weeks and felt compelled to write a comment. Overall, my stay was very pleasant. the hotel staff went out of their way to assist me in findind directions, changing money, or anything else that I needed. The metal detectors were a bit odd, but I guess that is standard for Istanbul. The room was very clean and comfortable, yet was a bit on the small side. My room faced the area of Kadikoy and not the Sea of Mamara (which was ok). My only real complaint was the bathroom, and in partiular, the shower. In a word it was "dangerous"! The sliding glass door would only partially open, preventing you from entering the shower with any degree of comfort or safety. The tub was too short for the opening of the glass door that you only had about a foot of space to enter the shower. lastly, the valves were overly complicated and you would have to guess which function was in effect - the bottom nozzle, the overhaed shower, or the wall nozzle. It was a roulette game I plaved evry morning (and usually lost by getting cold water squirted on me!). Last point I want to make: This is a good hotel (note not excellent), but it tries to perport it is more upscale than it really is. Witness: they would kick everyone out of the rooftop pool area at 1800, so that they can set up for the bar. Well, some of us get back from work at 1730 and would like to use the facility for more than 30 minutes! One night there were two young girls dancing on the bar tops (employed by the hotel) after the pool area closed and the bar was open - very gauche I thought. Would I return? probably: only because I am familiar with this part of town (Kadikoy) but would entertain others if available.

A very nice wellcome by hotel personel. A new and very good hotel at a very beautiful place of İstanbul. As we entered the room, it was so hot because of the sun. But the view was beautiful.
At midnight my wife found out the bugs in our bed. (More than 1 or 2)
They changed our room at midnight.
We were so uncomfortable after all!!!
The worst thing was the receptionist when we were checking out.
He asked us how our night was, and we answered with sleepy eyes as we couldn't rest after all.
While we were waiting for an ağpology, he asked for the extras of the room. Then he charged like 10TL for a 250ml bottle of water. That was the end of the comedy!!!

Small listimprovement suggestions: free paper. An extra lift - open up the staff one and the stair well. Huge hotel and one lift in one wing. Cleaning could be improved. Dirty coffee cup left in the room and some rubbish. Overall though cannot recommend enough. Very relaxing place to stay in a busy metropolis.

A very new Hotel. Good location for the Asian part of Istanbul. if you prefer : cold coffee, out of order elevators, window washers water drops during breakfast, quarrelling employees, smelly corridors, construction areas vis a vis and no management...just the place.
