Great location as you're outside the tourist area but still close to so much. The Intercon group does a wonderful job acknowledging its ambassadors, and we were upgraded to a Bosphorus view suite from a regular club room, which was spectacular -- huge, comfortable, great view. The usual fruit plate welcome for ambassadors was replaced by a lovely dried fruit-and-chocolate surprise. Water bottles were restocked regularly. Club lounge is excellent, very comfortable with several seating areas and not too crowded. Breakfast in the club lounge was outstanding, our thanks to the chef for the excellent omelettes in the mornings in addition to the lovely buffet! The hotel is a little older and the rooms feel a bit dated in their decor, but kept in excellent condition and very clean. Nice gym facilities (windows are always a perk, and there are plenty of machines) and the outdoor pool area looks beautiful and would probably be wonderful in the summer. This was our second time at this hotel and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
