The hotel was great. Check in was very friendly and efficient. SPG Gold Card so I had an upgraded room with a nice view of the Bosporus and the two bridges. The room was very well appointed and the bed incredibly comfortable. Excellent bathroom.
I took advantage of the spa - excellent hammam and Turkish bath experience.
Unfortunately, the food quality let's the place down. Everything seems to be "trying too hard"; good food spoilt by too much ostentation - in my case scallops that took a long time to come because, or so the waiter told me, it took a long time to make the foam that garnished the dish. Needless to say the foam wasn't necessary and detracted from the taste of the scallops themselves. Similarly with the lamb dish I had as a main course. Breakfast was more of the same.
The bar at the top of the hotel was very quiet, but that was just what I needed for a gentle wind-down.
