The room was large, and had a terrific view. The staff was very helpful and attentive. I ordered room service one evening and the food was delivered within short and had good quality. Overall, a positive experience.

Service was very good except for one cocktail in City Limits. Everyone was helpful to counter this lack of waiter service. We were traveling with Tauck which made this wonderful! And the view over Istanbul was grand!

We had come to Istanbul after a 10 day trip to Greece and were really happy with the location of the property. The breakfast and the rooftop restaurant were really good and we will definitely stay here again in the future.

A great hotel, perfect for the more mature couple who are still adventurous enough to explore this vibrant city on their own. It is a short and easy walk to the Taksim Funicular.

Spent wonderful 4 days with the family here no doubt proximity to the istikla street and the main square was our major attraction to choose this hotel but the staff did go out of its way to make it comfortable as much as possible. However this international chain does need to consider serious renovation and modernize their room interiors.

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
