We just concluded a one-week stay at the Villa Pasha Hotel in Istanbul. We had both been to Istanbul numerous other times over the past decade, but the Villa Pasha was far and away the best hotel we have stayed in. We stayed in the suite room, which was a tremendous value-- large, pleasantly decorated with a jacuzzi bath. The views from the terrace were exceptional, and the service staff was friendly and incredibly helpful. In short, we definitely plan to return to this hotel during our next visit to Istanbul and strongly recommend the Villa Pasha to anyone traveling to Istanbul.
