“Restaurant has a Fantastic View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had dinner in the restaurant of this hotel. The restaurant is on the top floor and has window walls to take in the great view. There is also a terrace but it can get chilly at night in Sept. Ask for an inside table in the corner for a view of the Blue Mosque. The food is good and a little pricey but worth it. We had dinner with friends and were never pressured to hurry through our meal. It is a delightful way to spend an evening in Istanbul.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Visited this hotel for 4 nights in October. Fantastic location, so close to some of the best of Istanbul's attractions, and within very easy reach of a mass of restaurants. The rooftop seating area offers breathtaking views. The room was small, but comfortable, however, the bathroom was in much need of an upgrade, with dampness on tiles and ceiling.
The breakfast was excellent, really good range of food, and plenty of it. The restaurant staff were also very helpful and friendly. Not so, for the reception staff,however, who were pretty offhand.
The hotel manager made regular rounds, and listened if you had any query.
The hotel is shutting this winter for a major refurb, and if it is as good as they say, we would certainly go here again.

This hotel is located very close to the major attractions like the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. In fact one can see both from the restaurant on the top floor - the view from here are superb. Speaking of their restaurant , their breakfast spread was awesome and food very good. The hotel is close to tramlines - hardly 100metres. Rooms are smaller than they appear in the pictures.

This is currently a 3 star standard hotel with room rates of 4 star accommodation! We have been at this hotel many many times over the past 3 years. We kept going back because of the location, view from the restaurant, the lovely breakfast and the fantastic service provided at the restaurant by friendly and courteous staff. They are helpful in every way and i give them more than 5 stars. The HR manager near reception area is a nice man. However, the reception staff, 2 in particular, are rude, arrogant and very unhelpful! Instead of greeting you, they turn away as you walk downstairs and pretend to look busy. They constantly try to sell tours. The wait to be taken to the rooms is always atleast 1 hour. One time we waited 4 hours, although booked in advance and confirmed by the reservation manager that we could be shown to the rooms without any waiting.

The rooms have varied. Some have uncomfortable beds, some are very smelly, bathroom can be mouldy, the showers are very old and very small. Some have a whizzing noise from a motor ?air conditioning motor.

We gladly took the plunge and gave up on the hotel. We stayed at a small nearby hotel and had our meals at Lady Diana Hotel restaurant to enjoy the views. Yes you can do that.There are many better hotels in the area at similar or better pricing and much better hospitality and rooms! Ultimately you want a hotel thats clean, comfortable and inviting. This one gets 1 tick out of 3...thats being generous.

My wife and I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in early October. The hotel is ideally situated a short walk to the Blue Mosque, then the Hippodrome, Aija Sofia and the Topkapi Palace; also good, reasonably priced restaurants plus shops and ATMs etc. The room, although not large, was clean with a shower and the bed clean and comfortable. The view from the roof top restaurant is breathtaking and the breakfast offers a good and plentiful choice.. The hotel staff were exceptionally helpful, friendly and courteous - all of the Reception Desk staff spoke good English and they could not have been more helpful; overall it was a most enjoyable stay. It was excellent value.

Room Tip: If you aren't happy with the first room offered ask to see an alternative
