The hotel is very good value for money with the luxurious decor and fittings. The toiletries provided are beyond what one can find in other SLHs. The location is great as it's in a beautiful charming enclave with many nice cafes and of walking distance to Taksim. Also the tram is a short distance away and the hotel is also close to the best Turkish bath in Istanbul as well as Istanbul Modern museum.
Also after I checked out at 1pm and my next flight was at 9 pm, the hotel kindly offered me a suite for me to shower before my flight. This was such a welcoming gesture as most other SLHs would not have done the same except to extend the common facilities for your usage. The concierge was very dedicated and attentive and would offer great advice and help with bookings. Most commendable is Nural, the guest relations officer who is very warm and service oriented and makes you feel at ease and safe considering that I travelled solo. His colleagues were also very good.
I also have to highlight the rooftop breakfast area with its superb views that makes each morning worth looking forward to.
All in all, Tom Tom was the star of my Istanbul trip and I hope they keep up the class act. 5 stars and highly recommended.
