Amazing Location and staff

I stayed for two nights in a Superior Room with Bosphorus view - don't even consider booking a room here without the view as it would be a waste of money.The view is sensational and speaks for itself. The rooms are the size that you would expect of a 5 star however the interior decoration is uninspired and dull. The hotel could do with a complete make over to bring it up to date with todays 5 star standard. I would hazard a guess that the rooms haven't been updated for 15 - 20 years. The WOW here is the outdoor pool which is located adjacent to the Bosphorus. It is heated therefore even in February it was great to use which I did - however some of the grouting is mouldy and requires attention.As other reviews have mentioned security is extremely strict on arrival.Once inside the lobby the staff couldn't have been more friendly.The concierge was one of the best that I have ever encountered in a hotel. In fact every member of staff was absolutely brilliant. I did have issues with the room door card key not working on three separate occasions - and as I was only there for only two nights it failed most of the time. Efficiently remedied however it remained an inconvenience that I would not expect at this level of service.The ensuite bathroom was OK but unexceptional and the complimentary guest toiletries were just 'average' and could be improved upon - as could the shower system. A nice full basket of local fruit on arrival in the room would have been lovely instead of just three lonely pieces on a plate.The flowers comprised of just one solitary stem.The welcome Card was a nice touch from the general manager - had he addressed it to my correct title of 'MIss' rather than 'Mr'. I imagine that this mistake was due to the fact that majority of guests staying at that time were predominantly male businessmen for whom the hotel is probably better suited.

Wonderful stay

Really loved our stay at this very classy hotel. It provided the perfect combination of relaxation and sight-seeing - so gald we splashed out and chose to stay here. Although a little distance from the main tourist sights it is more than made up for by the waterside location and lovely heated pool which were were able to use in November. (Swimming at night in the steaming pool with the illuminated bridge in the background was pretty special!). The staff, facilities and food were all first rate, as you would expect from a top hotel, but we liked that it felt friendly and relaxed rather than stiff and stuffy. The only thing that would have made it even better would have been a coffee maker in the room.

Die Gesamtnote ist sechs war alles hervorragend einzig vielleicht die Kellner müssten ein bisschen konzentrierter arbeiten. mann bestellt etwas und bekommt etwas anderst oder auch bekommt man etwas die man gar nicht bestellt hat weil sie die Kunden verwechseln ansonsten gibt’s nichts zu reklamieren ein perfektes Erholungsoder Business Hotel. Wir konnten auch unsere Meetings dort abschließen
