Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is good and well located despite the massive construction around it. The rooftop restaurant is awesome. I was disappointed not to receive any expedia VIP goodies although I pointed it out at the reception. Maybe it’s Expedia’s failure? Covid affected a lot to schedules and services but it’s understandable. I can imagine going back to Novotel on my next trip to Istanbul
