This hotel deserves every good word that is said about it! There is nothing to fault. I was told twice by the Manager that this is not a 5 star hotel. I do not know why not. There is no bar or restaurant on the premises but just across the road there is a choice of restaurants and all very friendly even if you just want to sit down for a drink and savour the magnificent view. Meryem, at reception, was always very obliging and helpful as were all other staff. Breakfast was typical Turkish fare and this was served by very friendly staff and the choice was different everyday and certainly fresh. It also had a wonderful view that I did not tire of. Due to travelling arrangements I stayed at the hotel on three different occasions in the month of July and I had the opportunity to try three different rooms staying a total of eight nights. The rooms were all beautiful and very clean.
The location of the hotel is very close to all the main attractions and only a couple of minutes walk to the tram that takes you to all other places of interest. I have travelled extensively and I found this hotel to be far superior to most, if not all, others.
I can not say enough good things about this hotel and will certainly be visiting them again on my next Istanbul trip.More
