Wifi?? No wifi in room or in lobby the entire weekend. No security - the room key should be needed to access floors in elevator, but no room key is needed for access to floors. Slippery shower floors and limited cable channels. Access to hotel is difficult and walking distance to restaurants or nightlife is non-existent. And of course, the dinner referral is to a restaurant that is a friend of the manager or someone else at the hotel - awful food - and not authentic Turkish food! If you want tourists to appreciate Turkish food, don't send them to the restaurants near the mall.
2 good things about this hotel: 1) accepts pets; 2) room was clean. Have stayed at much better hotels in Istanbul.
