We reached the placed pushed by the discomfort we found in another 5* hotel in Istanbul.
From the very entrance in the hotel we were nicely impressed by the parking services of the door boys - extremely polite and kind. The reception staff was enormously kind, we asked for a certain view for the room, they asked for all the details we needed and finally gave us the perfect room: great view, deliciously nice sheets, extremely comfortable bed, delightful bathroom. What else could we ask for? You must know that this hotel is a sky-scraper and windows DO NOT open. This was a bit frustrating for me who prefer to inhale some fresh air at midnight from my room's window. But: even if you are staying in a smoker room (although I only smoked one cigarette in there), I can assure you that the ventilation is so good, that no smell can be sensed.
The cleaning services are also great: bed sheets are changed every day and any request for additional products is satisfied. No personal object is moved from its place in the room, as if nobody touched anything in there.
The hotel restaurant (where we had only breakfast) looks a bit futuristic as compared to the main reception lobby, which looks like old palaces style, but the food and drinks in breakfast were extremely generous and diversified.
I also wish to recommend the hotel's bar, somewhere on the upper floors, where you can fall in love with Istanbul just looking at the view in front of your eyes.
