My husband and I stayed here for three nights while traveling on a Smithsonian Journey. The room was spotless, linens were lovely, beds really comfortable, and breakfast was amazing. The Jacuzzi tub was a welcome experience following our long flights from Boston. The location with its proximity to Taksim Square and the bustling pedestrian street was great. Staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.

A value for money hotel just a few steps from Taksim square and Istilat which is the famous Pedestrian street filled with shops and restaurants buzzing till the wee hours. Helpul staff, clean rooms, jaccuzi in all rooms, however no views.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms can be pretty small so check it out before moving into your room. Ask for a higher...

Me and my cousins stayed at the hotel for a week, the room is spacious and luxurious, the curtains and all details were elegant, the bathroom was very clean with a Jacuzzi, the breakfast variety was excellent. The hotel is only few meters away from Taksim Square and Itsiklal street, Jumhureyit street.
That was during 2009

We were a little worried about what we might end up in at this hotel as we booked it the night before arriving and went on price and location. We were very pleasantly surprised, the hotel was lavishly decorated, stylish, clean and very central. The staff were very helpful with any requests and the food at the breakfast buffet was the best we have had. If anything, it is worth staying I this hotel for the amazing bath/spa/sauna/shower in the bathroom...what a waterpark!

We stayed at the hotel from Friday to Sunday night - unfortunately our room was on the first floor and was very noisy due to a bar/restaurant in the street next door. We complained but were told there were no rooms on higher floors available. The hotel itself is lovely and breakfast was very good with a wide choice of food. The locations is perfect - very close to Taksim Square and lots of restaurant options in the area that are in walking distance. We returned to the hotel on the last night of our tour and we given a room on a higher floor following our feedback to the tour company and this was absolutely fine - even had an exercise bike in.

Room Tip: Request a room on a high floor (above third)!!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights following a Greek Isles cruise and flight to Istanbul. The hotel is modern and comfortable. Our room was large, with a separate sitting area, elegantly decorated and soundproof. The first night we were so tired we ordered room service, which came within 20 minutes, was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was very good and the internet wifi was free. A negative point is the location; it is a bit far from the old town. However, it is easy and fun to get to the latter by public transportation. Buy an Istanbul Card at the booth in Taksim Square, take the funicular and then the tram. The trip takes about a half an hour. Another minor negative point: no alcohol is served in the hotel. All in all, I definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor, NOT facing the street, as there is activity on the street all night.

We stayed at this hotel a total of 4 nights. The accomodation was modern chic and was very comfortable by all standards. The staff, namely the concierge and reception staff were very professional and friendly. This hotel lacks nothing. We had one concern with a leaking jacuzzi and an air conditioner that decided to play games and within minutes of phoning the reception, someone was sent up and the problems resolved. They were so accomodating that they were prepared to swap our rooms and send staff up to help us pack. Very efficient, very professional. The breakfast buffet is reasonable, not far from our western standards. The dinner at the restaurant and room service food was very good and reasonably priced by Istanbul standards. The hotel is centrally located to all shopping establishments. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveller who enjoys luxury and homely comforts while away from home.

Room Tip: I would recommend you stay away from room 406 if you like quiet, the staff elevator is adjacent to t...
