of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
I stayed close to over 10 days. Being a solo female traveler, I had my apprehensions, but I felt most comfortable in this hotel. The staff is super helpful, ever smiling and extremely polite. I had an adventurous experience while at Istanbul. Known for their bad attitude, a taxi driver nearly harassed me to extract double the amount I had to pay, he started shouting in the middle of the road and stopped suddenly to know if I was going to pay him double or not. I agreed. So, while on my way to the hotel, I called up the reception, and when I reached, there were closed to 5 bouncers to bail me out of the taxi. They made sure that the taxi guy got the amount he deserved and not a single Lira more. I will always remember the staff's gesture and the trust that I could have on these people throughout my stay. I never felt vulnerable while the hotel had my back.
Very nice hotel, it was near to the office. Very clean room the check in was good and fast , I been for just one night so I don't have time to use all the facilities. It will recommend this hotel to my friends.
I stayed here one week for business. There is not much view, trees and buildings. Pretty far from the beautiful bosphorus and tourist destinations. I hated the round bed. Staff were helpful though English was often a challenge. The air conditioner worked well but if you want to open the windows you must endure barking of the many wild dogs in the area. It is not the hotel's fault, but still annoying. The spa was fantastic and reasonably priced. I have back problems and visited three times during the week. My therapist Juni was AMAZING. She really knew how to help my painful muscles feel better. Housekeeping was good though some days you got a face cloth, some days not. Breakfast and dinner buffets were good.
The hotel is rated as 5 stars hotel and it has fancy photos on Booking.com and on hotel website. I can say it is a good business trip hotel. The rooms are average size with reasonable bathroom size. The bed is comfy and the room cleanliness is good. For breakfast the variety of food is average and sitting area is big. Location is bad if you are interested in shopping or having dinners at the usual places in Istanbul like Taksim and Ortakoi (maybe spelling is wrong). I would say its a 4 starts hotel which is match the services given. The price was good. I would go again for business stay.
"Not worthy of five stars"
This is a business hotel located close to our office which is the main reason we chose to stay here. Rooms are small and the furniture is low to the ground by at least 1-2 inches. No one seems to be happy to work here, no one smiled or even said good morning, except the valet and the front desk clerk Naciye as I was checking out this morning. We will not come here again. I will rather drive another 10-15 minutes and stay at a different more comfortable hotel with higher standards.
