Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed as part of a group tour. Service was friendly and efficient. Within 5 minutes walking distance to a small supermarket and 15 minutes walking distance to a shopping mall. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious with a lovely view across the Bosphorus. Breakfast selection was extensive, fresh and delicious. Complimentary water and late check out till 1.30 pm. Would highly recommend.

Very nice hotel. I loved the room and the rooftop restaurant has a nice view. Also, the room was very well cleaned and tidied each day (the person in charge of my room was Mrs Canan I think). Also, there are a few nice restaurant options in the area.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates5 contributions1 helpful vote
As someone who has traveled to over 50 countries and typical stays at 5 star hotels this was a complete disaster. We had 5 rooms reserved for business trip and usually spend a lot of money during our stays. 1. Expect the absolute worst service imaginable. They do not care about their guests, you must ask for something at least 5 times before they respond (no exaggeration). 2. NO Air Conditioning (NO AC). After checking in I found the room to be extremely warm 28 Celsius. I asked them to check it as something must be wrong, after repeated requests they finally showed up to check only to tell me the the hotel has shut off the entire system in the hotel in order to save money. So there will be NO AC for entire stay. This is no joke. 3. No Iron, No hair dryer that works, very small and uncomfortable rooms. Not to mention the rooms were very dirty and not maintained. Service is non existent and management could care less. 4. Gym and Fitness is not usable. The fitness center was 33 degrees Celsius. As the AC in the entire hotel was turned off due to cost savings. The spa area was filthy. If you request water expect to wait hours for anyone to respond. 5. Dirty bed sheets, do not respond to requests for more Towles or pillows as they only give 2 to begin with. Shower water pressure is low, probably another reason they are cutting costs. This is not a 5 star hotel, in fact its border line 3 star. Needless to stay we checked out after 2 days and then checked in at the Hyatt Centric nearby which was AMAZING and everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Trust me DO NOT STAY HERE. In fact, I would be surprised if this hotel stays open with the level of service provided and issues that exist. This is an embarrassment to the Mövenpick brand.

Very friendly staff from the moment you enter the hotel , concierge , porters, reception , guest services , leisure staff , restaurant staff , pretty much everyone goes above and beyond to make your stay here a happy one - if there’s anyone that’s stayed here before and has had the opposite I would suggest they were hard to please . Facilities good ! Food good ! Top floor Italian restaurant is also pretty amazing with a great view . Rooms are a decent size and very clean . Alot of 5 star hotels are borderline 4 ! The friendliness of this hotels make it borderline 6 star hotel . Thank you
