Best hotel in Istanbul!!
This is a fantastic hotel! Everyone at the hotel is extremely nice, hospitable and wonderfully professional. From the moment we entered we were greeted with such respect, and were in awe with the aesthetics of the hotel. It is decorated with a really traditional Turkish feel, and the hotel, from the lobby to the room and the bathroom, is always kept extremely clean. We particularly loved the little amenities we were given throughout our stay like the dates to greet us. They even offered transportation to the main square in the old city. Nevertheless, the location is perfect for seeing everything in old city, including the blue mosque and grand bazaar which are within walking distance. Anyone visiting Istanbul should stay at this hotel!!

great luxury hotel
If you want luxury then this is the place to be. A lot of effort has gone into the architectural marble work and design from the lobby right through to the rooms. The only snag I had was the gym and spa times were separate for men and women so never got a chance to enjoy any of this as the timing for men was from 3 pm till the evening, which during a brief holiday one is expected to be out in the city. They should either have more flexible timings or separate facilities built for both sexes.
