Service, location and accommodation, I loved the room but the only thing I didn't like is the bed leg design, it's out of the bed border, for two or three times I nearly hurt my fingers by accident Tribbled with it both sides

The value for the price was excellent. The hotel has a prime location in the European side of Istanbul. The room was very convenient and the staff friendly and helpful. The view of the city from the hotel terrace (breakfast spot) is amazing. The light was low in the bathroom, so maybe this is something the hotel may consider improving. The room service team was changing all the towels daily, so maybe a more eco-friendly options should be considered? Overall, my experience was positive and I highly recommend the hotel.
