Great service and great restaurants nearby
Posted Jul 9, 2013
We were very impressed with the big size of the rooms and the quality of the decor, which is truly comparable to 5-star hotel chains like Hilton. The beds were extremely comfortable. Strong showers. Satellite TV with international channels. Strong aircon. Breakfast was very good with a wide selection of cold and hot breakfast items and we were served Turkish tea continuously. The hotel is in a quiet residential area with plenty of local restaurants close-by. We enjoyed the food there as much as in Sultanahmed area. Maltepe downtown/high street is perhaps 10 min by taxi and is very busy and there are lots of shops. We got to the hotel by taking a ferry to Bostanci (25 min from European side, but very infrequent ferries-- check beforehand) then taxi (5 km away from port, but taxi went on a detour, as usual!) The seaside is wonderful and lots of play areas for kids. The only glitch was that we booked this hotel because it provided free shuttle to Sabiha airport, but upon arrival, we found out there was no shuttle on weekends! Seeing our huge distress, however, the gentleman at the reception went out of his way to arrange shuttle transport for us. We cannot find better service anywhere. We would go back to Dream Hill if we ever need to fly via Sabiha airport again.
