Stayed here 3/21/13-3/27/13 with family and friends. Prior to traveling they sent an email with a "guest folio" link which had all sorts of information about things to do in Istanbul and link where i could request they make reservations for some of these events. They promptly responded to my emails prior to our travel date. Because we were staying more than 3 days, the hotel provided transportation from the airport to the hotel free of charge. The hotel is located in front of the Sirkeci train stop which made getting to all the major tourist attractions easy and inexpensive(3 lira per ride but a pass is also available). Frankly it minimized the use of taxis for our group. The hotel is clean and modern. I cannot say enough about the staff. From the moment we walked in until we departed we felt very welcome, very safe and very secure. After you check in someone from guest relations will sit down with you and give you an "orientation" about Istanbul and nearby areas. Our guest relations person(Sirin) was fabulous. We shared our itinerary with her and she made suggestions as well as reserved taxis and tickets for us to get us started. She was incredibly warm, friendly and thoughtful. Two people in our group were celebrating birthdays and Sirin surprised us when she and the other staff brought out birthday cakes during lunch with singing and a gift. We were greeted every time we walked back into the hotel, the staff seemed to genuinely care, right down to the housekeepers. The hotel serves free breakfast and lunch(lunch is until 7 pm). The experience with this hotel from the moment we made reservations up until we departed Istanbul was nothing short of excellent!!!!!
