One of the best hotel in Istanbul. Perfectly located, friendly staff and brilliant view of Bosphorus. We stayed in a junior suite and I strongly recommend. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. Breakfast was incredible and room services are quite good. So I recommend this hotel.

Wonderful modern decorated hotel with large rooms. Can view the Bosphorus and yes! Asian shores even from the bathroom! It is rather easy to stick to your room and balcony all day although there is so much history to see and to do in İstanbul. Great staff, courteous and attentive, nice pool with views.

Location is great for a metropolitan five star hotel which is not trapped in downtown. Outstanding views from every meeting room. Recently fully rebuild. Comfortable stay. Decent rooms. Excellent food. Our group of about 30 business colleagues loved the place, had no complaints at all. Recommended for business or any kind of stay.

I returned and this time several of those small details that tells you that they are working on service levels. It is fair to say that the remote control was not working and they quickly gave me another one. But several key keys were not working either.
