I spent three nights with my family at this amazing boutique hotel in the first half of December and would recommend it to anyone planning a stay in Istanbul.
I chose this hotel based on all the excellent reviews written by fellow tripAdvisor members, and my experience was just as enjoyable. From the minute we arrived at the hotel we were warmly welcomed and a map of Istanbul presented to us together with advice on the top places to visit and the tourist attractions surrounding the hotel.
The staff, especially front desk reception was extremely helpful in assisting us with trip advice to various destinations in Istanbul and any request we had was efficiently seen to and always with a smile. The cherry on top was when management arranged a surprise birthday cake for my mum(compliments of the hotel) and personally delivered it to her room along with a birthday song!
I would fail in my review if I did not mention the exceptional interior decor of the hotel: from the entrance lobby to the rooms to the breakfast area, there was great attention to detail and everything was exquisitely designed to give the hotel a top-class ambience. The rooms were tastefully decorated with many amenities, and the terrace room had a large spacious terrace from which one had a lovely view overlooking the Bosphorus and Blue Mosque.
The hotel is located close to the major attractions and for sightseeing a little further away, you can use the tramway which is within walking distance of the hotel.
Overall this hotel is an excellent base from which to explore Istanbul and its surrounds and I will definitely stay here again if ever I re-visit Istanbul in the future!
