Family getaway

Great hotel located very close to a lot of historical visiting places with very scenic view from the terrace of the mamara sea and Asian side of Istanbul. Great buffet breakfast prepared and offered every morning as part of the deal. The hotel is very clean and rooms are cleaned daily . The staff are really good , polite and hospitable. They treat you as part of the family and really surprised us with a lovely gesture of providing my wife with a birthday cake for us to enjoy the occasion. Great staff great hotel
