If I come back to Istanbul I’d stay here again.
Everything is GREAT about this hotel. I love the room. I feel like in a 5 stars hotel room. Very clean, and in great condition. The only complain is the walls are too thin. I could here everything’s going on in the next room . They were talking / laughing all night. Thanks to Ridvan & Suleyman for being very professional, helpful and friendly. They do deserve to work in the 5 stars hotels.

Bad staffing ( booked the Taxi and offered Shuttle
The hotel is perfect in front of the Bosphorous Staright, Amazing experience, the first front desk person went out of his way to give us the room before check-in time, suggested the best places to visit and booking to be done. We had a great time in terms of stay, the reception desk person was not so friendly and didn't help much was only interested in getting rid of us. He also booked a taxi to the airport which was not a taxi but a shuttle service, he made us pay for the taxi rates instead of shuttle rates. The Shuttle ride was an another tale by itself. We started at 5.45 pm to catch our fllite for 10.20pm. We realised that after 2 hours we were stuck at the Bosphorous strait, it went detour via the ferry and at one stage we got panicky because we wanted to reach airport by 8 pm. When we checked with the driver he didn't know English, called back the hotel, hotel guy said he has taken a detour to pick up another night shift driver. All these at our expense of 350 liras and most of all our time. Finally we reached the airport at 8,45pm (3hrs to reach the airport) while we had reached on our arrival day in straight 70 minutes by Airport bus. The driver and the hotel manager needed to be taken to task for misguiding us and almost missing our flite. He also made us pay for Taxi instead of shuttle rates. Once back in B'lore I realised that I had left one of the my Turkish CDs in the room , called the hotel but they refused to send it. Nor would they answer the mail sent to the
