We changed our booking to this hotel after seeing the reviews and realising that it would be a lot less expensive then the original hotel we had booked.
From the moment we booked we knew that we had made the right choice as we received an email from the hotel with our own client area. Prior to arriving we requested a taxi from the airport and adjoining rooms as we were traveling with our 3 children. The taxi was there to greet us, (unlike our luggage!) and took us straight to the hotel. We were given rooms 308 and 309 which seemed like a wing of the hotel all to ourselves. The family room with a double bedroom, single bedroom, 2 bathrooms and seating area was well above our expectations given that city centre hotel rooms are usually quite small. After unpacking we went downstairs for a welcome drink and to be given information about Istanbul. It was our youngest sons 10th birthday and the staff came in with a cake with candles singing happy birthday - this was a fantastic gesture on their part and very much appreciated.
The rooms had everything we needed and more including a list of pillow choices. Very comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet was good as was the roof top bar. We did not try the main restaurant. The spa and pool area was a welcome relief after a day sightseeing and whilst small lets not forget this is a city centre hotel and space is of a premium and they have put that available space to great use.
The location is another reason to choose this hotel. Everything you come to Istanbul for as a tourist is right on your doorstep and there is a real buzz to the area at nighttime.
Our experience here could not have been better and would not think of staying in any other hotel should we return to Istanbul.
