The hotel is listed as being in Silivri when in reality it is miles away on the E100 high road in a fairly remote location so you will need to be travelling by car if you want to book this hotel or at least have pre arranged travel arrangements booked.
The hotel dominates the skyline and is a fairly new business and convention centre with a wide range of facilities. On driving into the hotel the hotel we noticed there was an immediate problem with subsidence in the car park. A large part of the car park was sunken in and potholed. However it looked as if work was in progress to rectify this situation.
Check in was simple and effective and the hotel is clearly built to a good standard even if it does look a little clinical and cold. All the corridors are empty of any furniture , sculptures etc which might have created a better atmosphere.
The room was of a decent size with its own balcony but not particularly clean and had obviously been prepared in a hurry. The air conditioning worked well and all the usual creature comforts were present in the room. On the down side the room did smell of tobacco smoke. Whilst I do not remember being offered smoking or no smoking at booking time I would advise anyone wanting to book a reservation to confirm that they have a non smoking room if this is important to you as unless specified it is not guaranteed.
The bathroom was well laid out and everything was as it should be. The complimentary slippers were a nice touch. Breakfast in the morning was in the breakfast room by the pool. It consisted of a large selection of continental, cooked breakfast and traditional Turkish with fruit juices and tea and coffee. A fairly good breakfast in actual fact spoiled only by the fact that the orange juice is actually an orange squash rather than a true orange juice which defies belief really since Turkey is swimming in fresh oranges.
Not a bad place to stop if you have a car and want to take a look at Silivri one of the towns on the outskirts of Istanbul. It is also within 45 minutes of Ataturk Istanbul Airport with a straight forward drive along the motorway.
