I booked at this hotel based on reviews in trip advisor. First let me say that I understand that different people come out from same situation with different experiences. Therefore, I don’t question the good reviews here. I am just writing my experience.
My checking took more than 30 minutes which seemed to me forever. I stayed in Deluxe Suite in first floor. The suite as you might expect and see from the Hotel website was great, specious, clean, well decorated. However, I was not able to enjoy the view of my room . I kept the curtains close most of the time because right in front of my room balcony was a restaurant balcony with people sitting. I defiantly didn’t want to be subject of their entertainment while walking around my room or resting in bed half naked. I was not able to get a room in higher levels because the hotel was fully booked due to high season. As everyone here advises, make sure to book a room in higher floors. It happened two times in afternoon that I forgot to lock the door and room service guy entered my room and I had to shout at him to back off. I was under impression that hotels have a system to know if a guest is in room or not. Thanks god I had cloth on.
I did not like the quality, quantity or selections of the breakfast buffet . Maybe I was partly disappointed because I was expecting too much before arriving. The location and view is good. But nothing special about the service or ambiances. This was my second visit to Istanbul and next time I will find a better hotel with this price.
