The best part of the hotel is its location. It a a couple of minutes walk to the famous Taksim Square and Istiklal Street famous with tourists is also closeby. The Taksim Metro station is just across the road.
All famous destinations is Turkey like the Hagia Sophiya, Blue Mosque etc are not very far away from the place. Public taxis are always available outside the hotel and there are a plenty of eating options around the hotel too.
Though at first sight the hotel may seem small from the entrance as the lobby directly opens to the road junction in front, but it is reasonably sized and not at all noisy as I perceived earlier.
The hotel has 9 floors and has decent facilities for guests, like the sauna, indoor pool, spa, firness centre, coffee shop, Japanese themed restaurant on ground floor apart from the rooftop one etc.
The room was fairly sized and cosy. It also gives you pillow options to choose from. The digital clock in the room is helpful, but one has to set the time again after each exit as the last setting is not retained once the power is turned off. This needs some attention. The room and corridors are carpeted and well lit and the temperature within is maintained well to.
The downside is that one does not get any view from the room. But then its so close to the activity that one would not prefer to spend idling in the hotel.
The buffet breakfast is ample with choices for everybody.
Nice hotel in all.
