We just finished a fantastic 6 night stay at the Tomtom during our visit to Istanbul. Our room was spacious and very well appointed; there was also nightly turndown service. As others have mentioned, the staff are topnotch and the evening desk manager, Nural, deserves special mention. He is a genuine, enthusiastic host who helped orient us to the city via his hand-drawn maps and his excellent restaurant recommendations. Tomtom Suites is lucky to have him.
The large breakfast selection is amazing and will take days for you to sample everything. The homemade preserves were a particular favorite. In the evening, the 4th floor dining area is transformed into their top tier restaurant, Nicole. The food and wine pairings were excellent. The service matched the food, and our waiter gave detailed descriptions of each course as it was served.
We had a very early departure on our last night…3:30 am; yet between Nural and the overnight desk manager, they arranged prompt transportation via a city taxi (with no traffic it cost me 55TL including tip) AND a pre-packed breakfast for us to take on our travels.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay and a comfortable base camp after returning from long days of exploring the city.
