I spent 3 nights in this Amazing place. You can enjoy an Amazing view from the room and also from your bathroom. Breakfast and lunch are really various and also the coffee break provided during the business meetings is really abundant. Desserts and cakes are SUPER!! Also the staff were very kind.

We stayed in a suite and loved everything about it. The view was amazing, as was the service. We had access to the lounge and frequented it quite often for the delicious spread. Loved the experience. Recommended!

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.
