Reviewed 8 July 2014

My husband and I were in this hotel four days (3 nights) in June this year. We were dissapointed, esspecially when we got a room (no.403), since it was so small that we could not pass one beside other between a bed and a wall. The stuff - polite, but nothing more (they do not have any map of town with hotel marked...). A breakfest was with only two kind of bread, nothing special. We would not go again to this hotel.

We spent three nights in this hotel in may. It was very nice experience. They gave us room with three beds even there was only two of us. Room is big enough, there is standard 32''flat tv, coffee table, beds are large, comfortable, and warm. View wasn't much cause we were looking on the back side of the hotel but we didn't mind it. Our room was on 5 floor. Bathroom is small but not that small. And you have everything you need. There was always hot water btw. Hygiene was good, no traces of dust, filth, garbage or something like that like people were commenting before. Our sheets and towels were changed every day - we left small tip off course. We didn't use air conditioning so i can't tell about it does it work or not. Cleaning staff was friendly, with others we didn't spent much talking.
Breakfast was ok, cereals, continental stuff and lot of sweets also.
Locations is the best, just a 20 minutes away from all important things to see with a slow walk. There is also a tram, bus and dolmush stations nearby. I can recommend this hotel for city break in Istanbul. Maybe it is not full 4 stars but it is definitely close to that category,and not even close to dreadful comments people left here.

We spent there 3 days in april (month of the tulip in Istanbul) 2014, BB. When we entered our room I was a bit dissapointed because the room was very small, double bad is also very small and the bathroom is the smellest I have ever seen. Luckily for us we are not big people, but if you are-be careful with this hotel. So this is definitely not 4 star hotel in a european standards. But then I reazlizes that everything is quite clean which is the most important thing for me. Also, breakfast was excellent, there was something for everyone. Safe box is included in price. Wi-fi was working, you just need to ask for password on the reception. TV did not work, someone came to check it, but they did not manage to repair it, but that was not important for us. Reception staff was very friendly and they do speak English. All in all in was a nice stay. Much better than I expected after reading previous comments here. And yes-it has awsome location! Enjoy Istanbul-it is amazing!

Room Tip: Do not take rooms x13.

Ok,this is not 4 star hotel(on europen way) but I don't understand why many people are unsatisfied!?Rooms are clean and neat(you will even get few cups and tea so that you can make yourself a tea if you want).It is not true that they don't clean your rooms and that bathroom is dirty.
About breakfast;selection of food is big,there is something for everyone.
About staff,I also didn't see a problem.As soon as we came,receptionist gave us a maps of Istanbul and the other one helped us with suitcases.
Also there is a wi-fi and hotel is near all main attractions.

We stayed there 4nights. Absolutely not good. Room very dusty...the never vacuumed the floor. Unprofessional and unfriendly staff especially in the afternoon-evening shift. They were not be able to suggest anything to do...was really unplesent to talk to them, you alway had the feeling to bother them. For example during the check in, receptionist gave us the key while was keep watching the tv next to him. We booked a double room a they gave us a room with 1 queen size bed and 2single beds...so no space even for the suitcase on the floor. Bathroom old. It is seriously not a 4 stars hotel and for turkish life style is extremely expensive. Use your money in a better way..don't go there!

Me and my son stayed there for 4 nights and 5 days, one of our biggest mistake, firslty because of their restaurant fiood i had food poisioning, though the staff was nice enough to provide me with the taxi for hospital.

as our room AC was not working i called them three tyms asking them about the AC, and the receptionisit replied me saying that the AC's are fine. i know better i am the receptionist. i didnt wanted to argue because i didnt wante dto spoil my mood.

they dont clean the room, you have to request them to clean it, but still there are few litters..

I seriously didnt like the hotel AT ALL...

Room Tip: * Do not go for this hotel
