Good location, wait staff very friendly but the people behind the counters (such as reception) didn’t seem to want to be bothered with guest questions. Not horrible but could improve.

Beautiful property and location. But no courtesy extended if you had an emergency money is more important than God to this Hotel. They Robbed me for two nights 800 USD because I couldn’t arrive on time due to a snow storm in Istanbul in March. The flights canceled city was under heavy snow. Room reservations in this Hotel are extremely unprofessional and have no courtesy.

Racism, don’t speak English than no one cares about you. Reservations counter, they skipped us to serve the Arab customers first. And than no politeness. Booking made by Expedia. Which we had to pay for our third person. They said that take it or leave it. So we paid extra £350-400. Very upset with service at both ends.
