What a lovely place 😊

Great stay
Really enjoyed the hotel. Great facilities and restaurant (for breakfast). The hotel isn't far from public transport so it's very easy to get around the city. I would recommend this hotel.
Minesh, gb4 night family trip

Great hotel
The good: very close to the tram stations, clean, renovated, good breakfast, great views of the Bosphorus from the restaurant, very close to the Karaköy nightlife. The bad: construction in front of the hotel may obscure the views in the future. housekeeping is a bit sloppy( some days we didn't have replacement towels). One thing that I did find very strange was that they have fitted an electric translucent (Not Opaque) privacy glass between the shower and the room. Great for some guests- however it may not be ideal for some guests with families.

Very comfortable hotel in a great location
It is a great hotel in a great location. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. It is walking distance from major historic attractions. The only downside is that there is extensive construction going on in front of the hotel. This makes access difficult, and when it rains the whole area becomes muddy, making it difficult to get out of the hot hotel.

Excellent experience. Check in/out was very fast. The breakfast was excellent. Great variety and quality of food with a great view on the Bosphorous. Staff were very friendly. Mrs.Noktam from room service and Mr.Racep at the reception were very helpful and welcomed us all the time with a nice smile.

Great value for money
This hotel is a great value for price..location is good and metro station is nearby..the view from the rooftop restaurant is amazing but there is ongoing construction work in the front area which is pretty noisy..though there was absolutely no noise heard in our room..I loved most the fact that they had 24hr room service👍 The hotel was clean, well decorated and the staffs friendly.
