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

Great location - Great staff

Very good location, wonderful views on club level and above. Friendly staff, super gym, nice pool. Very expensive to eat in or dine, excessive really. Rooms are small but well equipped. Comfortable bed, dated bathroom.

Top Hotel für Kurztripp

....das Hotel hat überzeugt...das einzige was uns gestört hat war unser Zimmer das sehr hellhörig war oder die Im Zimmer nebenan wahren einfach zu laut....Das was uns aber entschädigt hat war die superschöne Aussicht von diesem Zimmer (16 Stock) mit Blick über den Bosporus...
