          verygood location,

          room was small,bed was not comfortable, too much noisy, expensive

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          location, good places to east weather turkish fast food or sit down dining.

          tight elevator, but similar to other hotels in the area. room needed wallpaper touchup.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Everything what needs to be solved was made with effort by the crew.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The room was spacey, location excellent, good breakfast, friendly staff, may be a bit too expensive for the level of standard offered

          service in the restaurant of the hotel fair - we reserved the table but when we came the table was offered to somebody else, we were waiting long for taking the orders, bread was given in the end of the meal etc

        • Single
          9.6

          It's great hotel.

          They emphasize on the checkout time. (1-2pm).

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The staff were extreemely friendly and helpfull. There were tea/coffee making facilieties in the room. The hotel was walking distance from most tourist attractions and the city tram run past the front door. I would go back again.

        • Single
          9.6

          i went to the mosk and to grand bazar

        • Single
          5.4

          It was very convinent.

          One of the staff said that he could arrange for free drop off since I stayed in the hotel for 6 days. On the day, he said it was not possible. The same staff, asked me my marital status, and while we were in the elevator alone, he pinched my face & said "You are beautiful." I found him inappropriate.

        • Couple
          6.2

          the place is excellent,ideal for shoping and turism.the stuff is kind and helpfull.

          the rooms are small,not so clean and on the last floor are almost awful!don't stay there,especialy in the terrace room!

        • Single
          10.0

          That is was very conveniently situated. The room was clean and a good standard for the price. The receptionist(s) were always helpfull, polite, positive and attentive all times. Good atmosphere. The same for the resturant. Quick service, good food, helpfull, wonderfull music, and ofcourse the breakfast buffet in the morning helped creat a good start for the day out to wonderfull Istanbul.

          I truly cannot really find a downfull, but maybe prahaps that the rooms could do with a new coat of paint to freshen up, otherwise I liked the room I received. I liked the white colour or cream colour, the curtains helped keep out the noise and light enough to get a good nights rest. Just a new coat of paint would make the rooms perfect I think.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          location is the key and staff friendly

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location is very very very good , close to metro station and historical places

          small bathroom

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          This Hotel is all about location!

          Don't be surprised if you don't find a lobby and a proper waiting area in the hotel.Chairs in the food lounge are of basic wooden model, not suitable for long and enjoyable dining experiences.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The location to visit the main attactions was perfect

          The bathroom was tiny, never before I saw a shower as small as this, you have to be rather thin to manage to take a shower.

        • Couple
          5.4

          The room was in good condition, clean and spacious, and the hotel is located close to the most of turistic points.

          The hotel appears to be more expensive than its value, it is very simple, breakfast short and simple and it doesn´t correspond with the description.
