We really loved the apartment, which we found to be modern, clean overall, and well-equipped. The bedding and linens are lovely, with quality sheets, down pillows and comforter. Washer-dryer in the unit made doing laundry very easy. We even cooked some of the meals during our stay in a kitchen stocked with all the necessary appliances and cookware. The AC and wi-fi worked beautifully. The bathroom, though small, is well-designed. There was no bathtub in the unit we stayed in - only a shower - which suited us fine. You will most likely enjoy the fantastic view, as the hotel starts on the 43rd floor. The lower floors are occupied by residents of the condo called Anthill Residence. The elevators were fast. As the previous poster mentioned, there is a supermarket on site which makes shopping for essentials very convenient. There is a gym and a spa in the building. There is a also a pharmacy, a Finnish coffee shop chain called Roberts Coffee, a liquor store, and a kebab place for quick meals. Within a 10-minute walk uphill, there is a stretch of a street with small shops, bakeries, and butcher shop, and one or two neighborhood eateries, but dining options in the immediate area are very, very limited.
This hotel may be better suited for those staying for a week or longer and have their own means of transportation (rented cars, friends or families with cars in the area, etc). The nearest metro is a steep uphill walk - more than a mile away - and while there are relatively inexpensive taxis (about 17 - 20 liras to Sultanahmet for example), the ride back may not be so easy as most drivers seem to be unfamiliar with this area. if you are staying for a few days and plan on spending most of your time visiting major tourist sites, this hotel is not for you.
If you are in Istanbul for an extended visit, where you do not feel compelled to fit in as may activities as possible, you might enjoy a relaxed and peaceful stay in the apartment itself.
