Having stayed in Istanbul before we decided to try the Asian side. Hotel is very close to the car ferry to the European side - 5 minute walk but up a short steep hill. Would recommend a Corner Suite (402 or 502) for best views of the shipping in the Bosphorus - yes, there is noise from the port but this is to be expected - the double glazing did a good job in keeping it reasonable.
Reception staff were excellent - very friendly & helpful - English spoken. One small gripe - we hired a car and the write-ups say car parking can be arranged with the hotel. This turned out not to be the case - the only parking is on the public roads outside - but in fairness we were met by someone from reception who took the keys and moved the car around as necessary so it was not a problem, By the way, car hire not recommended - they drive like lunatics and getting around is easy by the numerous ferries.
Room was kept very clean with regular changes of bedding etc. Bed VERY comfortable with good quality mattress. Wi-Fi excellent in the room. Breakfast very good but always the same choices, hard boiled eggs, cheeses etc & the usual fruit selection the continentals like. Scrambled eggs would have been nice from time to time.
Pool area was kept clean & tidy and was very pleasant to sit there at the end of a day sightseeing.
Overall a very nice hotel in an excellent location. We will be back!
