Staff: all brilliant, from the bellboys to the manager.
Breakfast: loved it! Full Turkish spread and helpful, attentive staff.
Cleanliness: I am a stickler for clean rooms and this hotel was spotless. 5 star.
Room service: the minibar is NOT free as they say, but you get a very nice selection of tea and coffee and kettle in room. The in room menu was a joke, and when I tried to order off of it at night I was told that it was unavailable. However, the staff either went and picked up food for me from the fast food place next door, or ordered delivery which came straight to my room.
The downside: not very accessible, although if you are doing business in Levent maybe the 7 minute drive would be ok for you. The metro is nowhere in walking distance and I got lost more than once trying to find it. The area is not touristy at all, it's a very random place to put a hotel, and at night not sure how safe it is. It is certainly very noisy. The in room a/c did not work for my entire stay. so I was told to just leave the window open (natural air conditioning!) The staff could really use some training in English as even basic requests are met with confusion. Example: I asked for a robe and the reception asked if I could say it in Russian (?!!!) After using google translate I was met with the news that they don't actually have robes :(
All in all though, a great experience.
