Mixed. Great hotel, some misleading advertising
Wonderful hotel in a great location. Fantastic breakfast spread. The restaurant manager at breakfast was especially great. Provided some nice insider tips when asked and could tell he was working hard to train the staff to keep up top notch service. Front desk was ok. Had some minor issues that they didn't seem too eager to solve, but were generally positive. The major disappointment of the stay was that the bed is definitely not an American King Size bed (as appeared to be advertised). A queen is not small, but not what was expected. Also, room furniture not as pictured in photos. partly went with a nicer room for the little couch that seems to be in those rooms. This was not there in ours. Not dealbreakers, but false advertising never feels good. It was a huge bummer that the roof was closed. Their website said that it was set to be open for our dates in March, but it was not. When I pointed this out, I was told that I was wrong and that the website said April. Unfortunately for them, this was easy to disprove. Given that this is a key reason to book such a hotel in Istanbul, very big value loss. They made it up to me with a few strawberries at 7pm right before dinner (lol). Not 5 star service.

Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff
The staff of the hotel were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooftop restaurant was closed for renovation so the dinner menu was a bit smaller than usual but it was fine. The room was very comfortable and clean.

Always welcoming
This is our 6th time at the hotel. Great Location and staff, Usman from the front desk was very helpful and polite. Overall it's the best hotel in the Karkarkoy area. Look forward to staying again. Great for short stay for a few days. However roof terrace was closed this time so bit of shame. One of reasons i oiek gong there

Lived up to Expectations!
This luxurious hotel lived up to its billing--marvelous service and comfort in a terrific location. We've been to several hotels in the area (and throughout Turkey), and this is my favorite. Hands down the best breakfast we've ever had in Turkey. The only thing that was mildly disappointing was the mattress on the King bed. If mattresses were upgraded it would be a 10.

Modern and comfortable stay @ a Perfect location
The hotel staff was great and truly made sure I had a great stay. They went out of their way to make sure I had everything I need and also offered great tips. The hotel facility are very modern and beautiful. This hotel Is an old bank that has been restored into a hotel. I felt the price was fair for what you’re getting. You also cannot beat the location, most things were walkable from this location. A tip if you’re trying to catch a cab or Uber it’s better to walk a block to kemeralti or tersane for a easier pick up. The only compliant I has the Wi-Fi was spotty at times for one of the days of my stay, but still it was worth staying here and I would 100% stay again.

Excellent location, Well appointed hotel
This is a beautiful hotel with lovely rooms and very nice staff. It's well situated for being a tourist in Istanbul. You are right off the tram line into the Golden Horn. There are great restaurants nearby and transportation is very easy into all areas of Istanbul.

Very good 8,0
Room cleaning need big improvement!!!
This hotel is in great location with easy access by tram and subways to major landmark attractions in Istanbul. Front desk is friendly and efficient both on check in & check out. Breakfast is sufficient in quality but service need improvement. The big disappointment is house cleaning which is well below the average for boutique hotel. The hotel shut down the roof top restaurant for renovation after we just check in one day during our seven days stay.
