I had a very comfortable, convenient stay in this brandnew Hotel. The fact that its brandnew is really nice, very comfortable state of the art beds, nice bed sheets, plush towels and good quality of room. The rooms is on the small side though! Free WLAN was very apreciated and worked well.
Staff were all friendly and speaking a good level of english-. they had several german TV Channels aswell as CNN and BBC etc etc.
Location is very good on Barbaros Bulevard which is 5 mintues from the Bosphorus and about 15 minutes by cab to the historic part of Istanbul.
The Bosphorus view rooms are really cool and have a seating are in the window bench, very nice to watch the hustling city life and all the traffic jams from above. the only downside i can see is that Aircon is not to be switched off, that disturbed me quite a bit, but must say its a top notch aircon, without noise or too much wind. Can really recommend staying in that hotel!
But i have to admit its not a top class 5 star hotel, its a very good quality middle class hotel.
