AN OVERRATED HOTEL

This was supposed to be a five-star hotel, but I believe four-star is even more than enough. The room was smelly, small with old furniture and stained carpet. The staff was very impersonal. The food was average and very expensive. The only plus was the location. Hint: Do not use the hotel's taxis, they charge double the price at least.

Mixed impressions

I did not like: - Air conditioning is very weak - Water was leaking from bathroom to the room through separating glass - Noises from the street clearly audible - First we got non-city view room even though we booked such, had to wait .5 hour for room change - Breakfast bad: bad bread, bad meats, bad coffee - wifi in the room was very weak and unstable I liked: - nice decor of lobby and rooms - free pool, saunas, gym

Good central hotel better than most

A very central hotel near the main area of Downtown Istanbul. Its one of the best in the area while not of the standard of the Four Seasons it is good. Rooms good breakfast good Staff all round a good 4 star level.One thing to watch the Taxi rank outside I was on 2 occasions tried on. First an overcharge, the meter was doctered, and when in giving a 50 TL note was by a slight of hand was shown a 5TL note and was asked for the difference. The second it was the old 50 TL trick again. On both times I won out. Do not hand a 50 TL note to a taxi. Watch the Taxi at the hotel, they even carry thh hotel sign on some of them ?

Pleasant hotel at a good price

The hotel was nicely appointed at a very fair price in an area in the new district of Istanbul near Taksim Square that had lots of hotels and cafe/restaurants, and was closed off to most vehicular traffic. The rooms were pleasant enough but a little dark given how modern the lobby was. My 87-year-old mother was given a handicapped room whose bathroom was well-equipped for her needs. The staff was friendly and helpful. On the downside, given the number of floors in the hotel, the elevators did not seem to be able to keep up and we often chose to use the stairwell instead even though we were five floors up. Perhaps more importantly, if your goal is to see the sights in the old district (which is what we were focused on), the hotel is a bit out of the way. I suppose that there are trade-offs between price and convenience.

Good value

Service could have been a bit more friendly but it was acceptable. The room was nice, pool was good and the hotel is in a good location. A good price as well. I would stay there on my next trip to Istanbul.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Make sure when you take a "taksi" in Instanbul that you insist that they use the meter rather than giving you a flat rate. The meter rate is quite reasonable and always better than what you'd be charged otherwise.
