Ok for a short city break

Beware. The photos of the bedrooms shown can only be of the highest price suite. They are nothing like the standard rooms, which are small and do not even have room for two suitcases. This hotel is small and at best of average average quality and is way oversold by the photos. It overlooks a patch of derelict land. The staff were polite and helpful but their English was not good.

Use the yellow taxis to and from the airport - cheap and reliable. Don't shop at the Grand Bazaar - greatly inflated prices compared to local shops. Don't eat at the Pyramide opposite the hotel - worst meal we had.

Mrs ordinary

The beauty of this hotel is its location. To present it with anything other than ordinary is a mistake. It's totally un eventful. The view is not good and I thought its being over priced for the standard.

The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. The location was walking distance to the main attractions and tram. The gym was sub par. The breakfast was decent. Overall we had a good experience staying here.

Agatha Christy Feeling

The hotel was everything we expected and in many was far better. For our budget traveling it was great, we followed some of the previous reviews. The staff was very nice and helpful. Got to breakfast early, arranged for tours with them as well as shuttle ride to airport. We were there for three days and wanted to experience Istanbul not the hotel. Breakfast had some traditional Turkish food which we enjoyed. One thing to point out is the eating area on the 5th floor is not were BF was offered, but you can still go to sit up there (we ask reception to bring tea up) and the view is amazing toward the park. Location, location, location - walking distance to major attractions, great restaurants and plenty of shopping.

Museum three day pass is a great money saver, saves time in lines too. We didn't read fine line and you can only use for one time visit (museum or palace) per card.

Excellent location

Warm welcome late at night, and great service from all staff. Superb location for Topkapi, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern and tram stops. Just a shame there isn't room in the double rooms for a comfy chair - only a pouffe in ours!) and the chair at the internet desk is excruciatingly uncomfortable. The terrace was out of use until the last couple of days of our stay so there was nowhere to sit out and relax until then. The spa could do with a makeover and a clean - I was the only person in there and yet there were empty shampoo bottles scattered around. But, the food was excellent, the hotel gave value for money and is ideal for visiting Istanbul.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Book a tour to ensure admittance - Hagia Sofia, Archaelogical Museum, Basilica Cistern, and Topkapi all had long queues whenever we tried to get in. Gulhane Park Gardens are superb and well worth a visit. A Bosphorus boat tour is essential.

Bad everything!

This hotel is not 4stars lol no where near! It's not even one! First of all our flight was delayed... So they have away our room! They put us in a another room saying they would change it the next day... Next day now they said they didn't have any rooms! So we would stay In the room we were in... Our friend wasn't alowed in our room at all! Until he payed 90tl even though he wasn't staying... This happened a lot!!! On our last day they woke us up!!! We were pretty tired and hangover so they could move us!! Lol because they needed the room... No apology apparently they did us a favour by letting us stay in that room! Even though it was horrid' the view is the worst thing in the world .... Staff rude! Not helpful... We tried the breakfast once ......,,..... Bad bad bad! I wouldn't go bk here again EVER! This should not be advertised as 4star as that is the biggest scam ever! Don't stay here..... Just don't do it I hardly stayed here as I had friend that lived in turkey and still when ever I went there to change there was always something! The spa looks gross and dirty! Oh and the free cocktail is orange and cherry juice... No alcohol and your room you only get comp coffee and water for the first day after they charge you... And the minibar smelt of gone off milk.... Horrible, the only good thing the location perfect location!
