I stayed in this hotel with my family of four on June 2012 for 5 nights. We had two rooms in the 6th floor. The staff was very polite and friendly and helpful. When we were checking in they took account of our preferences of having rooms in no-smoking and same floor. The breakfast was colorful and well served. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Yet the noises of corridor were bothering. The room service was good but they forget to clean one of our rooms once. Food in the restaurant was of good quality and prices were comparable to the outdoor restaurants in nearby vicinity. But the major advantage of eating in the hotel’s restaurant (Point View Restaurant) in the 9th floor is using the fantastic view of the Bosphorus especially at nights. I recommend avoiding the floor below the restaurant if you prefer a restful night sleep. The Wi-Fi internet connection was awful in rooms and only tolerable in public areas of hotel. The location is advantageous. It is located in 5 minutes walking distance from Taxim Square. There are many exchange offices in the nearby. The entrance to the Metro stop (Talimhane station) is also in neighborhood. There are many good restaurants of variable types and qualities. And also a taxi station is in front of the hotel. I think that this hotel is a good choice for staying with family as a four star hotel among the multitude of such hotels in the nearby vicinity.
