Spent a week at the hotel and enjoyed every moment of it. Very conveniently located with all the sight seeing places at a walking distance. Must mention Abdullah at the customer service who helped me a lot when I lost my Samsung Galaxy S9. With his help I got my phone back. Grateful to the honest cab driver who returned my phone.

More like a 4*. Location is amazing. But rooms are small and the walls are like paper so you can hear everyone in the corridoor and rooms. Nearby restaurants are loud even with the windows closed and make your rooms smell of kebabs! Great value for money overall. Staff are very healpful and breakfast is good. I'd stay there again but to manage expectations I'd say it's a good 4*.

Great location, everything else less so

You are really paying for lication with this one. If you are used to luxury hoteks and 5* the cleanliness, breakfast and upkeep of this hotel are not up there, but manageable. Spa is OK though staff are clearly not trained to massage, mine felt like a glorified moisturising session.

Very friendly staff

Second visit to the hotel. Just got better. Very polite and courteous. Concierge service makes you visit and transport very easy even if you do not know the city like our case.

Awful Management and Staff Great Hotel itself

Pros: The rooms are a good size and the decor is excellent
Cons: Change the Manager and his friends
The rooms are a good size and the decor is excellent. The cleaning staff do not do their job, the toilets areas smell like a sewer particularly in the basement and the ground floor room, the staff are rude and the breakfast is awful. We tried to get hold of the Manager for three days and he was pretty much non existent and never appeared, hence may be the reason for the poor service. I have been visiting this area of Istanbul for twenty years and i would say that the building decor and room sizes are excellent so all credit to the owners for putting the money into the building. However the management and the staff are awful, Definitely the worse breakfast i have had in a five star hotel.

Good hotel, small room

Our penthouse room had two small windows, but was not too dark. It was very quiet, bar the hum of the gentle air-conditioning outside. Staff were great, breakfast was generous and tasted good. Being under the eaves, about a quarter of the room was unusable due to the sloping ceiling, so the whole room felt quite small. Great location for the historical sights, but if you want nightlife, good restaurants or bars, you're better off getting a hotel in Beyoglu, as the traffic between here and there is a nightmare.
