I was a bit nervous about this hotel, as i havent had much luck picking them in the past, i was there for a week, 3 days to see the Grand Prix, and 3 days sightseeing. I went for a room with a bospherous view, and was put in room 1406, the rooms are very modern although smaller than i thought, quite quiet, air conditioning and walk in shower, i could not fault it at all, there is a doorman on the front, gym, sauna, restaurant ( although i never used the gym / sauna / restaurant, i got enough exercise walking, and there are so many places to eat out, its almost a waste to eat in the hotel. The rooms were serviced every day to a high standard, theres also a minibar in the room.
It was a little bit pricey, but it was a one off for me, i would definatley go back, the best thing about this hotel though is its location, smack bang on Taksim square next to Istiklal Cadessi which is always busy, Taksim has a great nightlife with cafes and eateries aplenty, and the Funikular from Taksim metro to Kabas meets up with the tram that can take you to Sultanahmet and all the sights, in my opinion if your comming to Istanbul, stay in Taksim for the atmosphere / nightlife, visit Sultanahmet for the sites. Oh and be sure to try a fish sandwich on one of the boats beside Galata bridge!! a must do!
