          10.0

          The staff were very flexible. We arrived at 8 and check-in is supposed to be at 12, however, our room was ready by 9. While we waited we were even given a free breakfast. We were very impressed in every way.

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          The rooftop restaurant and bar with terrace had outstanding views to the sea. The reception staff were very helpful and recptive, albeit that their English was limited.

        • Group of friends
          2.8

          They have very very small rooms and the sea view it's a joke, the hotel is very far from the sea. The air conditioned broked in the second night.They parked our car in front of the hotel and we found it scratched.The location of the hotel is's also very bad.

        • Family with children
          4.6

          The room and bathroom were large, modern and clean.

          Wifi was way too slow, the TV channels were all Russian channels except for one English music channel and the air-condition is pre-set at 25 degrees centrigrade and cannot be controlled which can be uncomfortably warm and stuffy at night. Furthermore, the hotel is located in an all-Russian speaking clothing district which is deserted on weekends and therefore can be unsafe for walk come nightfall.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The central position in Istanbul en th environment ( clothes shops )

          Th internet facility i the hall

          6.2

          The hotel is V.good and staff are helpful the restaurant location is nice and food was good generally it was good hotel

          I reserved two triple rooms and paid for that but we were given one triple room and one double room with extra bed I felt this was cheating any way I didnt complain about anything else

        • Family with children
          8.4

          The beds are very clean, the staff are very nice and helpful and they help you how to travel around and they provide maps for free, location is very good walking distance to Grand Bazzar and near the transportation. The breakfast was very good and there was a nice view to the blue sea.

          the first two days of our stay was not according to the internet photo in terms of space and there was no chairs in the room but the last two days was even nicer than the net photos ,they don't have facial tissues in the room as well they don't have cream ..

        • Single
          7.4

          The terrace and

          Wireless in the room... Not working... Almost. Very poor signal, I had to do all the things downstairs at the reception. Wall television, to be moved in better position in front of the bed

        • Couple
          8.8

          Rooms have been refurbished recently, all clean, esp. bathroom. Great restaurant on the 9th floor with a view on Bosphorus, excellent food and wine. You can leave your baggage at the reception after check out but be prepared to dig through a pile of bags in order to recover it.

          AC control was broken / blocked so we were not able to regulate it - in effect the air in the room was quite cold, with no blankets available. No shower gel amenity in the bathroopm (shampoo and soap were there, though). Breakfast closes at 10am sharp which might be a challenge if you have partied long...

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          Before I had checked in, the hotel had already charged my credit card the day before. That is what I did not like.

        • Single
          10.0

          is an excellent hotel.very very good terrace bar,virtual garden(8. floor)dreamy...

        • Single
          10.0

          Good location, not too close to the cluster of sights in Sultanahmet, and a very nice terrace with bar

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Located in a shopping area Laleli, near the historic center Sultan Ahmet. Ttram station nearby, you can visit all the attractions and shopping. In the evening the streets are selling a lot of fruit.

          May be room in the hotel are small but they are comfortable and equipped with everything necessary.

        • Older travelers
          4.0

          This hotel is that one anyone cares about. You never feel there is someone looking for the guest. There is no hospitality, so famous in Turkey. In the breakfast there are 4 workers, but none is able to talk in English and even though you are asking for help, they really dont care if you need something. The money and 4 stars aren´t fare. We don´t recommend it.

        • Couple
          8.2

          The swimming pool was not usable and one of the reasons that I selected this hotel was its swimming pool but unfortunately I couldnt use that bezause the services for swimmin pool was not good.
