My husband and I recently stayed at the TomTom as a kick-off for a 5- country anniversary trip. By far, Instanbul was the crown of the celebration, and the Tom-Tom was the jewel. The very best experience of our trip was a two-day private tour arranged by Nural with a fantastic guide called Selcuk, a charmingly personable and highly knowledgeable art historian who showed us a rare window into the city, its culture, and many of its hidden gems.
The rooms are beautiful, and the hotel has a cool modern edge that starts with the modern art in the lobby and carries through to the large suites throughout. We loved the breakfast - who knew that plain fresh yogurt could taste so wonderful with rose-petal jam?
The staff was lovely, and Nural was a welcoming friend when we arrived back at the hotel at the end of every fascinating day. We can't wait to return.
