I don't usually get disappointed with a W Hotel so this is the first. It's subjective but I felt the bed was far too soft and pillows all flat despite requesting firmer, foam pillows. Breakfast buffet really cannot be compared to other Ws, items ran out and took ages to refill. No live stations. Plates and bowls ran out and also were not refreshed. Tables at the breakfast restaurant didn't have settings - may be an issue with shortage of staff. On hindsight it would have been a better deal not getting the breakfast package and popping outside to one of the various cafes / bistros for breakfast. Cafe Nero is just outside on your right. Rooms have no coffee or tea making facilities but that may be a local thing. All in all our stay at the other SPG property, Le Meridien Etiler was much nicer (they gave complimentary club lounge access for a wait for check in / large indoor lap pool / great gym and service) although one thing about that property is the distance to town.
