This isn't exactly a Hotel, more like service apartments.
Pros: 2 bedroom Premium apartment has a great view. One room with an attached bathroom, one more bathroom which is outside the 2nd room. Spacious, modern, very clean and chic. Fully equipped kitchen, with microwave, stove, oven, fridge, etc. Lap pool, sauna, steam room, gym, which is shared with the rest of the condo residents in the building. Grocery store downstairs which is convenient for stocking up on things. Taxi stand right outside.
Cons: Kitchen didn't have enough utensils, plates, cutlery. No ice maker in fridge, costs 10 lira every time you call for Ice from room service. This is located in Siscli, and isn't walking distance to any restaurants, bars, or major sights. Have to cab it everywhere. Plus the traffic in istanbul can be a a nightmare, and a lot of the cabbies don't want to come here during peak hours, unless you pay them double the fare.
Important tip! Watch out for the cabbies! I was there for 5 nights, and every day at least one guy would try and switch the notes you pay them with. For example you give them a 50 and they'll switch it with a 5 and claim you only paid them 5! Before handing them the money make sure you hold up the bill, show it to them, and say it's a 50.
