My wife and I spent our silver wedding anniversary holiday here. Right from the start, at booking stage, the reception team were keen to help. They arranged our transfers, which worked smoothly, and recommended and booked in advance our tours of Istanbul, and our trip on the Bosphorus. The hotel really is ideally suited for visiting the sights of Sultanamet, as they are all within a short walk from the hotel. If we were short of something to do, the really helpful Ugur on reception had a whole host of recommendations.
We were in one of their 'Ocean Rooms', on the first floor (strangely numbered 301!). The ocean was there, but the room was not really high enough for the view to be great. BUT, it was clean, comfortable, and well serviced. One problem with the room was that there seemed to be over loud wallpaper music from the lobby overnight, which did really annoy me one day. But it was a 'one-off'.
The breakfast buffet was extensive, and attended by a really lovely man, who will make you proper Turkish tea if you ask, rather than the black tea in the urn.
If we revisit Istanbul - and we hope to - we would have the confidence to book directly with the hotel, and let them arrange everything for us. We would DEFINITELY stay there again, and would encourage others to enjoy the Ferman experience!
