I have booked Ansen Suites, İstanbul for a business trip. Standart hotel rooms and restaurant food bore me so I was very pleased when I found this hotel's advirtesement:The rooms were spacious with fully equipped kitchen.
However on my arrival the hotel staff informed me that the electrical cookers were cancelled due to a former fire in the building. No cooker, no kitchen equipment. What is the reason for keeping the misleading adds in the web sites then?
The compensation for the absent cooker is a kettle and a few tea bags. No bags for coffee and the bag of the tea brand you prefer is not replaced. This is a very cheap for a five star suite hotel.
Other wise, as the previous reviewers have stated the hotel is very central but still in a quiet street of Beyoglu. All the major attractions are within easy distance. Taxis are always inexpensive in Istanbul but public transport is nearby as well. The room was indeed very spacious with a nice decoration. The wireless internet connection was fast and without any charge. However the room 'superior suit' was very dark. Not only there was not much of a natural light but the walls and the ceiling were painted in dark colours and the lighting in the room was very poor as well. Ideal for a romantic get away but not for a business trip.
