    I traveled from States with my family for 8 night, 9 days. It looked very good in the pictures but reality was different. Room was smaller but the staff is great. Good breakfast in the morning with amazing staff, very friendly and professionals. One night i realized that my room was full of cigarettes smoke, someone next door to us started smoking (even though its no smoking floor). I went downstairs and staff was kind enough to give me another room. Location is good, close to main road that takes you to Grand bazar, blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. Metro station, vezniciller, is closeby too. Not the worst place but not the best either. I will definitely explore other options before i book this hotel again.

    Never again

    It was really a bad experience, we booked an exclusive room but we even did not have showergel in the bathroom. Bathroom was very small and had a glass door, no privacy. First night we suffered from next room guest noises, at 2am tried to call reception about noise, it did not work i had to call from my private phone which is not turkisch gsm. Next day we had another exclusive room this time there was shower gel, room was better than previous so i thought perhaps the first was exclusive at all. Again glass bathroom door. Walls were like paper we could even hear next rooms conversations. People around hotel are generally Arab, or Syrien, you cannot see Turkisch people. In nearby restaurants waitresses were not abla to speak Turkisch. Overall a bad experience

    Stayed 6 nights in Oct 2019
