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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A perfect restaurant in Istanbul. Nice service. Excellent food. I would like to single out Ismail and Anes. I can only recommend them to everyone if they are in Istanbul.

The hotel is very very nice! The staff is professional, kind, always helpful. Gul, the girl at the reception was always there for our requests(room, hotel in general, sightseeings). Hakan payed attention to our orders everytime we ate at their restaurant, he was nice and...helpful. Overall, the experience was so nice. The hotel has a great location, close to sightseeingsMore

The place is at a high level, both in terms of taste, hygiene and service. The staff are friendly, the meat is affordable, the meat varieties are excellent, I loved katmer as a dessert, I will definitely stop by every time I come across it.

We came here for dinner with my girlfriend. We took the meat dish recommended by the waiter and tried the Öküzgözü wine with it. We got a truly incredible taste. Thank you to your waiter friend for his recommendation. It was a very nice evening...for us.More

I was staying at the Doubletree, two minute walk. Saleh was my waiter. I was dining solo, late in the evening. The service was great, very attentive. I had a delicious salad and wine. Stayed after dinner and had wine and a cigar outside.
