We stayed for 3 nights in one of the suites and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were decorated and furnished in period style to fit with the rest of the hotel and it made a nice change from more typical modern hotel furnishings. I actually took photos of the room to get ideas for decorating! Bathroom was lovely with free-standing bath tub and separate shower plus underfloor heating. Our bedroom had a little balcony which would be nice in the summer - as it seems everywhere in Istanbul, the views are amazing.
Everything has been restored to a high standard and the hotel itself is peaceful and elegant, which makes it a relaxing place to stay. There are historical features on display and we were taken to our room via the original old-fashioned elevator. There is a spa area for guests (steam room, sauna, small lap pool, Turkish bath room) which was very quiet while we were there. The breakfast buffet was fine with plenty of choice; didn't eat in the main restaurant but we did have room service which was excellent.
We were given a bottle of wine with fruits and chocolates as a welcome gift - we had to wait a few minutes for the room to be ready but we were shown into the tea room and given drinks while we waited. The staff are very smart and polite, getting a cab from the hotel is easy, location is ideal for the nightlife around Istiklal...everything was perfect about this place! Loved the hotel and the city and hope to go back one day.
