Absolutely no 5 star hotel!! the rooms are very ugly and small. you have a grid in your room that gives acces to the shower of ze person in the other room next to you. You can hear them sneeze, shower, walk and fart. YOU CAN HEAR EVERYTHING! Its pictured as a very expensive and luxury hotel but in reality you can compare it with a hostel. Very bad hotel, never again!!

The hotel is definitely not a five stars hotel. Old carpets, broken chair in our room, nothing looks nostalgic but very old. A dirty bed was left behind on our floor the entire day until I asked the reception to remove it. The pool is too cold and not very clean. The spa Guy a bit pushy to sell massage. Not really feeling like to us the spa area. The location is great and the staff nice but the hotel is over rated and can be down rated to 3 stars. Not recommended.

It is amazing how the star system works, or doesn't. Having high expectations about this property, we were, mildly putting it disappointed. While enjoying a fantastic location, within walking distance from the major attraction in Istanbul and a beautiful property, this hotel needs a major clean up. We were checked in in rooms that weren't even vacuumed and bathrooms that need it a thorough clean up. Plus, a smell that will tell you unpleasant stories. We wanted to leave the next day but the reception crew was very receptive and moved us to different quarters and that changed the outcome. The room were cleaned every day and we stayed for the reminder of the trip. The roof restaurant serves a very nice breakfast, and it will be so helpful if the majority 0f the staff will speak some English. Do not expect a Four Season treatments from a place that have seen better days!

We found the hotel probably the best in that area! The hotel is huge!!! The location was great, close to the historical places, amazing restaurants, Eminonu station, Galata bridge (all in walking distance). Service was great, staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was marvelous! We enjoyed every single minute of staying in this hotel.

Very good and clean hotel. Just on a walking distance to the most famous shopping area and touristique seeings. The ambiance is also very rich, you will feel like a Queen as you enter their lobby. The prices comparing with the room and service you get, are very reasonable.

The hotel is in a good location, close to the transportation, nice lobby, the front desk staff are great, the house keeping is perfect, the breakfast was very good, the only negative is the hotel manager! I tried to meet with him to address my complaint many times and every time he didn't show up!!. The second point is the safety, i reserved a room in the 5th floor and the huge window collapsed during the hail storm, it tend that they fix it with 2" nails!!!, still waiting for reimbursement for the damage to my staff, bags, computers...

Very well positioned easy walking distance to all attractions, the rooms are just magnificent. Very well laid out with tasteful furnishings, The staff were most helpful for planning any excursions that i had planned ...a well appointed hotel , 11/10

Well situated within walking distance of tons of attractions, this hotel is a real bargain. The rooms are large with king size beds and the hotel is very clean. The staff seem as if they are accustomed to dealing tourists and speak English very well.

Highly recommended. 10/10. Rooms are super huge with what seems like 15 foot ceiling and king size beds. Very luxurious. Location couldn't get better. Perfect to explore the old city and in walking distance to everything incl Sofia Hagia, topika Palace, grand bazaar to name a few. Even better it is 5 mins walk to the galata bridge which you can take to go to istikal street etc. Hotel is in a super quiet and safe area. In fact I have not came across an unsafe part of Istanbul. I read a lot of people being panicky and apprehensive due to the instability of the area but as a person from NYC I can tell you I felt way more comfortable in Istanbul than I did in New York City. People are kind and friendly and helpful if you ask them any question. Staff/Front desk was super nice/friendly and helpful. I love this hotel. Hotel staff was extremely friendly. It is really an opulent 5 star hotel at a fraction of the price you'd pay at other more pretentious ones. This is the real deal. Building is amzing. Breakfast was adequate.
