I have stayed number of times at this hotel as it is arguably the best one on the asian side of Istanbul.
It is on very good location if you are on business in Istanbul as it is very close to major roads. Furthermore, it is only 10 mins (though can be 30mins if traffic) to cosmopolitan and nice Bagdat Caddesi (street) where you could find plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops.
I particularly like the rooms in this hotel. They are very spacious. If you are in one of the high floors it also gives you good views of the princess islands and the entrance of the bosphorous (not as spectacular as you could get on the hotels from the European side).
Hotel has a very good restaurant and a bar with friendly staff.
The downside of the hotel is that there is nothing immediately next to it and you would need a taxi to get almost anywhere (which are available 24/7). In addition there are 3-4 shopping centers in less than 10mins drive.
I also found that, the service in the hotel is variable, sometimes you get awkward experiences through reservation and room cleaning, sometimes they are perfect. I suspect this is due to managerial changes that the hotel have gone through in the past months.
