We had such a wonderful stay here. The rooms are comfortable and clean, albeit a little old. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The pool and gym are fantastic - definitely the highlight of our stay. The skyline bar on the top floor is stunning and boasts incredible views. The wifi is good. The location is excellent - being right beside Tacsim square ans all amenities. My biggest complaint is that we couldn't charge our phones by our bedside (due to lack of plug sockets). Such a minor complaint to have!

Staff very helpful. Cleaners friendly but not very thorough. Found someone else's old t shirt in our room after it had been prepared for us. Concierge and front desk staff professional, friendly and helpful

Not really a 5 Star

Great location on Taksim square but this is not really a 5 star. Bathroom is very dated and although comfortable the room is a throwback to the eighties. Stay if you can get a good price but if not, save up for the Four Seasons on the river which is the only real luxury hotel in Istanbul
