“First class service”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

This is a great hotel if you're looking for a nice hotel you could find in any country. It didn't necessarily have anything specifically Turkish about the feel of the establishment. However, the food was great and the view of the Bosphorous Strait off their back patio can't be beat. We were really happy with the hotel.

The hotel is nice, and has a great location. Unfortunately, our experience was ruined by the fact that we were given a smoking room, despite having booked a non-smoking room, and were politely told that there was nothing they could do about this. Unless of course we were willing to pay 250 EUR per night for a suite. They have however compensated us somewhat for this after we got back home.

The location of the hotel was excellent and the services was really nice with nice people at the hotel was supporting us, the room was small. The view from the hotel to the BOSPHORUS was really nice. One thing was really in this hotel the noise coming from the next building which is open night clubs having very loudly speaker and the sound of it coming inside our rooms like we are with them, too much noise till 4am which you cant sleep!! that was really very bad and the hotel can't do anything about them.

was there for a family holiday. rooms were comfortable but a tight with an extra bed for our son.
generally i found the hotels in turkey to be expensive so in comparison this one does not seem expensive for the price i paid.
the location was good but the approach main road was always chocked and thus took a long time getting there.
breakfast was great and the deck by the river was beautiful during the early winter sun.
