The hotel entrance is very unusual as it looks like a regular building , the lifts will take you to the lobby and only there you feel the modern ambiance , the staff is nice and when you arrive to the rooms the place is very comfortable , a rel apartment style , clean and spacious. I liked the bathroom as it looked as a sauna or it gave the impression of a turkish bath in some way...
We had a balcony with no view... being in Istambul you expect a better view or at least the a nicer one.The location is really great very modern so it contrasts with the rest of city , great stores and malls at walking distance.

I went on a three days business trip.
Very good hotel with very spacious rooms (at least mine, 405) and comfortable bed. Very clean.
The breakfast was average, nothing outstanding.
The only thing for me was the extras, wifi was not included in the price and it was really expensive, 12 € for 12 hours. Same for mini bar or laundry services.
Location was convenient, near former Besiktas stadium.

Great hotel in the center with gorgeous practical rooms! The service was great the breakfast buffet was terrific! We felt like we were in our own studio apartment! The taste level was great! We wished we had a better selection of movies in our room! The Internet kept dropping even though we were paying extra for it.. They finally gave us our own modem! The front desk was very helpful ! The location was perfect! And the maid service was super!

When you book a suite here, I think an expectation of the basics being correct is reasonable,
To pay for wifi is Im afraid just not acceptable. The alternative is to "borrow" a laptop, but they only have one and it was booked.
So many little things were wrong with the room, and obviously had been for some time. They were all obvious faults, should have been spotted by staff and fixable in a few minutes. The toilet roll holder in the bathroom was hanging off, the balcony door handle came away in your hands. There was no coffee machine in the kitchen, just a kettle with cheap sachets of Nescafe instant. No milk, just powdered stuff. None of this was replenished during room make up and when we asked for more we were given just 4 sachets of Nescafe. Wasn't replenished the following day either. Piles of ludicrously expensive stuff to buy in fridge and heaped up in kitchen but no free water. One bowl of fruit on arrival just isn't good enough.
A real pity, at this price, I expect the basics to be right.
