Excellent Hotel

The hotel is well run, the staff polite and efficient, and the rooms though a bit small are well designed and appointed, and very clean. The breakfasts are good value with a wide range of food. But the biggest plus is the 2-minute walk to Aya Sophia and the major sights.

Fazit: Relativ Gut

Wir hatten ein Deluxe-Zimmer (1123). Bei der Zimmerbetretung war alles noch okay, bis auf das die Klobürste fehlt und der Toilettenpapier halter schräg war. Das Rezeptions Team: Vorallem freundlich, Minuspunkt das nicht alle Englisch können. Finde ich schade da man doch im Zentrum ist.. Bei Ankunft werden die Taschen bzw. Koffer von einem Rezepionisten hochgebracht NACHDEM man zuerst bezahlt hat (sofern nicht über Kreditkarte) Sofern man das Frühstück dazunimmt hat man eine breite Auswahl an Fleisch, Brot, Cornflakes, Oliven etc... TOP! Zimmer werden jeden Tag frisch gemacht und relativ gut wieder hinterlassen. Lage wie schon erwähnt sehr Zentral. Zur Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) sind es zu Fuss gerademal 1.5 Minuten. In der Umgebung eine breite Auswahl an Wechselbüros der Währungen. Stand 15.04.17 [1€~3.89 Türkische Lira] Ich würde es abraten Schweizer Franken mitzunehmen, lieber nur € da der Wechselkurs besser zur Türkischen Lira ist. Alles in allem fanden wir unseren Aufenthalt ziemlich gut in unserem Hotel und gäben 4 von 5 Punkten.

Tolles und ruhiges Hotel

Pros: Die Lage des Hotels und die Dusche
Location: Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen
Der Check in war unkompliziert, das Zimmer war groß , sauber und modern eingerichtet. Vom gebuchten Superiorzimmer hatte man einen tollen Blick auf die Hagia Sophia. Das Frühstücksbüffet war reichhaltig und man hatte auch hier eine schöne Aussicht.

Sensationell und auf jeden Fall sehr empfehlenswert!!!

Die gebuchten Transfers vom und zum Flughafen, sowie ein early-check-in und late-check-out haben wunderbar funktioniert. Wer mit dem Auto anreist (wegen Stau und teils spannenden Fahrstilen nicht wirklich zu empfehlen) kann das Auto vor dem Hotel abstellen und es wird auf ein bewachtes Parking gegenüber des Hotels abgestellt. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Infrastruktur ist auf gutem und aktuellem Stand. Die Fenster sind so gut isoliert, dass selbst eine Baustelle imdrei Meter Abstand nicht zu hören war. Der Blick auf Hagia Sophia ist fantastisch. Frühstücksbuffet ist grosszügig und von guter Qualität. Unser Zimmer hatte auch eine eigene Nespresso-Maschine. Fazit: Sollte ich wieder in Istanbul sein, dann auf jeden Fall wieder in diesem Hotel!!

excellente location mais peu de services à l'hôtel même

L'hôtel est assez chère pour la qualité des services offerts. Il n'y pratiquement aucune information sur les activités à faire à Istanbul, pas d'horaire pour les bateaux, pas de plan de ville, etc. Pas de locaux pour laisser les valises après le check-out, ils tout simplement déposés dans le hall d'entrée. Pour le prix, le petit déjeuner devrait être inclus
