                • Couple
                  7.0

                  Good location (near to shops, bazar, blue mosque), friendly staff, nice (sea) view from the terrace on the top of the hotel, good bed, free wifi which is quite fast. There is not much noise, the hotel is quite. There is a minibar in the room.

                  The swimming pool was in the middle of the terrace on the top of the hotel, so that other guests were continually looking at you while you were swimming. The swimming pool, sauna and turkish bath are only open till 8 pm. There are very few vegetarian dishes on the menu. The breakfast is only till 10 A.M. and there is not enough (choice of) bread. There is no coffee/tea in the rooms. There is no bath in the room (only shower) and the water pressure is low.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  Excellent location, friendly staff

                  There was no balcony indicated on Booked.net and the noise from the conditionner's istallations (and even from the generator during the first night of our stay) in the small yard of the hotel made our room quit uncomfortable

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  Good location, very close to the tram. Restaurant with nice view. Good masage services at reasonable prices. Spacy room.

                  Parking was not free athough it was mentioned otherwise. Problems with minibar charging (they tried to charge items we had not consumed).

                  Hotel suffers a little bit its years, but generally speaking it was good experience. Staff was helpful and nice, all my inquiries were solved soon. Room service was quick and good Russian speaking staff, because many russians tourists. 10 minutes walk from Grand Bazar and 25 to Historia shopping mall Crazy traffic road all around, so leave sooner when going back to the airport or you could stay 1 hour in traffic jam. Hotel is on a main road where tram passes, so easy to get to the Blue Mosque also (but don't expect the Mosque is at a walk distance). With room window closed, not lot of noise

                  If I have to criticize something, just a few simple things: -when going out of the room, would be better to have another 5 seconds light before everything switches off -lift is a little bit too slow -I would put 2 small water bottles at the arrival, it's not a big deal for a 4 stars hotel -it's not a very touristic area, so not charming restaurants around, just clothes and shoes shops -it misses the "do not disturb" door notice -additional light over the bathroom's mirror -tv screen in the sofas room is nice, but sometimes nice to relax and watch tv on bed -terrasse restaurant would be great for summer breakfast, too !! -easier bar service in the lobby, without going up and down to the "a" floor

                  The room was fine.

                  The service was terrible. The front desk guy wanted me to pay in advance, wanted to keep my passport for hours, failed to give me an invoice upon check-out, negotiated the price of the taxi to the airport and then couldn't give me the invoice for that trip. I am very disappointed and feel like I was cheated several times.

                  First of all,I have to say that I had one of the most beautiful holidays in my life in Istambul,this summer.I Was very pleased about the manager atitude,helping us in airport pick up...but the greatest pleasure we had seeing the great,comfortable and very nice decorated room.After many hours walking in town and a lot of places we visited,we were absolutely happy returning in our hotel,where we found nice atmosphere,nice place in top terace or relax in a wonderfull spa.We were happy in hamamm...and the massage...everything was fine!!!

                  We did not intend to get some more weight kilos...but the breakfast bufet ,in my opinion need some improvements...and the top building bar,especially in pool area deserve some attention in very next time,making it a good alternative for spa(it is very,very beautifull).Next year we intend to visit again Istambul and I think we will decide to reserve again D.H.

                  Good location with a tram stop just a few metres away, which allowed easy access to the main sites and the ports. Roof top bar/restaurant had good views with enthusiastic staff.

                  I cannot understand why you should have to pay an extra 8tl for fresh orange juice at breakfast when no other orange juice fresh or otherwise was available. Needless to say nobody was buying it. Bathroom was a little cramped for a family sized room.

                  The roof-top pool and bar is very pleasant and much appreciated after a hot day's sightseeing. The hotel is reasonable value and is very well located, being only a 100 metres or so from the main tram line to Sultanahmet and Taksim Square.

                  Nice rooftop pool and restaurant bar. Also very nice health spa and pool in basement. Breakfast are was clean and comfortable too.

                  The bathrooms were too small and poor lighting. The lifts were too small for the traffic. The hair dryer in our room overheated after 30 seconds. After repeated requests to reception and a visit by the house engineer, it still over heated.

                  wall ornament; city center proximity; roof terrace

                  1. Hotel staff was terrible. They refused to help even in such small things as restaurant booking, quoting the receptionist "you will speak to them yourself as I will speak in Turkish and they will not be able to say no to me". they could not give any good recommendation for restaurants nearby too, so we felt absolutely helpless 2. the area is really spooky. although it is quite close to the center, you feel like staying in slums with lots of cheap cloth shops around. there are so many nice hotels downtown, but this one is located in dirty and busy urban area 3. our room esp shower was smelling with cat pee :( 4. other guests of the hotel indeed misbehaved - strangers were calling to the room with (I assume) some offers. thanks God, I did not speak their language and did not understand what they were talking about. Overall, Istanbul is gorgeous, but this hotel is complete nighmaret

                  The hotel is located near the tram station, at the Old City and close to the historical places, Sultanahmet district and the Grand Bazaar. The sea view from the terrace is wonderful. Two swimming pools and spa procedures add real value to the hotel. It is nice, clean and kept in good order. Wi-Fi connection is free of charge and very stable with a good speed. But the main value of the hotel – its friendly and cooperative staff. Thank you all. Would love to stay here again.

                  Location was excellent and the staff were extrememly helpful.

                  I thought there was an outdoor pool, so was a bit disappointed, but it was still lovely.
