I stayed here on a work trip. It's relatively new and very clean. I agree with other reviews:
1. Location is not a tourist location and not on the metro, so taxis needed
2. Staff somewhat aloof (with some exceptions) and not always welcoming, except at the front desk
3. Great views from rooms on the Bosporus side
I thought breakfast was very good.
Rooftop bar & restaurant is lovely spot but service and food not impressive.
Room not big but very well appointed, slept well.
I will likely return.
