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.

Not a four star hotel

The hotel forgot to pick us up from airport, even though I had reserved in adavance and it was confirmed. Some of the rooms are underground... Air conditioning didn't work during summer heat... Lobby stuff was very busy and always had to wait to get help. The breakfast was very middle-eastern. The best thing is the location, it's right next to all main sigths!

Super Aufenthalt an perfekter Lage

Das Hotel ist der perfekte Ausgangspunkt um Istanbul zu entdecken. Zentraler an den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten kann man fast nicht übernachten. Von aussen Altstadt, von innen sehr stylisch. Gut eingerichtet, alles da was man braucht, grosszügige Zimmer, Sauberkeit gut. Unbedingt die Adresse bereithalten für den Taxifahrer. Da an einer Einbahnstrasse gelegen tun sich die Fahrer nicht ganz leicht das Hotel zu finden.
