Hotel location is on the Asian side of Istanbul and is relatively isolated. There is a large mall relatively nearby but if looking for ease of access to touristic sites I would suggest another hotel on the European side. That said, due to its relative isolation, the reception staff are extremely helpful with planning trips and also recommending good restaurants.
Clean, spacious rooms with a large bathroom. Even found a little signed and dated sheet under the bed saying that 'they look here too'.
Executive lounge was nice, good selection for breakfast - only slightly limited compared to the paid breakfast buffet in the restaurant downstairs (I tried both).
Internet was expensive. A 24 hours access pass ranged between 17-27 Euros - approximately the price I pay for a whole month at home. Internet is free in the lobby by obtaining 30 minute passes at the lobby. Unfortunately, these worked rarely. I used free internet access 4 times for which I had to get in total almost 15 of these free passes. Only in 2 cases did their logins work. In two other cases I was offered a free internet pass for 1 hr and 24 hrs.
Decent gym with staff to help train if needed. Sauna and steam room - small but they work.
Good points for nice rooms, cleanliness, friendly staff and extras such as sauna and steam room. Bad points for location (if aim is tourism) and internet access.
