"I recommend it "
Excellent hotel. Especially Rocca restaurant was superb. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning. The variety and the quality of the food was very good. Service was outstanding at breakfast, very friendly staff. Special thanks to the restaurant manager Bora.
"Luxury hospitality with warmth"
At first we were awed by the scale and beautiful design of the lobby and our hotel room with a Bosphorus view and every comfort. Later what will remain in our hearts is the warmth and caring of the staff. It must be said that the location, although stunning and adjoining a wonderful luxury shopping mall, is far from the historic center and the traffic is daunting. We fared much better once we figured out the metro.
"Best hotel I have been so far"
Look, there is very little to say. The hotel is simply perfect. Everybody is trained to serve at their best. 5 star service, 5 star room. I found the gym to be quite small for an hotel which charges approx 400$ a night to be honest. But apart from that ... I would defintely go back.
We were travellingas a family and while in Istanbul for one night, we stayed at this hotell. Check in was quick and friendly,and the lobby is beautiful and relaxing. When shown to our adjoing rooms, we were surprised with the kids room filled with balloons, snacks for the kids and even a T-shirt for our youngest daughter. Our room had complimentary snacks and a bottle of wine. The rooms are large, bright and beautifully decorated, with a large walk-in closet and big bathroom. The shower was probably the best one that I have ever been in and the bed is super comfortable. When booking, I was tirn between this hotel and the Four Seasons, and definitely didn't regret my choice.
Outdoors swimming pool is small but I don't know anything could be done. Hotel needs a good bar for sozializing and a restaurant. Breakfast area is not warm for a restaurant. A roof bar and a good name restaurant would be great. The hotel is in one of the best locations of Istanbul
