Great hotel. Location is good. Breakfast was good with a decent variety. Rooms very clean and equipt and we only stayed in a superior room. Welcome staff are great. Would recommend. Views from breakfast is great as it overlooks the bosphorus but the are a few cranes in the way due to construction but thats not the hotels fault.

Nice and clean hotel but without view. The pictures here are for the rooftop of the hotel. I. Front of the hotel there is some historic building. So if you go to have the Bosphorus view this is not the perfect hotel. I don’t recommend for that. But if you are just in in Istanbul to have nice time this hotel is very good.

Our family like Novotel hotels so knew what to expect. Staff were friendly. Didn't like immediate hotel area as a bit of a building site at mo, no doubt it will look good when finished. We were put in a room on 1st floor above busy bar street, so was quite a lot of street noise.

Die Unterkunft war sehr gut. Die Lage war auch angenehm. Nur die Verarbeitungen des Zimmers waren türkischer Standards. Heisst Ecken und Ränder sind bei der Bauarbeiten nicht sauber gemacht worden. Nichtsdestotrotz würde ich das Hotel jedem weiterempfehlen!
