    Amazing experience. I was with my mother who is disabled and they did so much to accommodate including upgrading us to a 2 bedroom suite which was huge. Felt like our own flat. The staff was amazing and so helpful with all our needs. Mehmet and Omar who are at the cafe at the front were so friendly and a joy to be around. Even at night they helped us when needed and I was just so glad that they had the support system to make sure my mother wasn’t feeling any difficulties during the stay. Will be returning to Istanbul and will definitely be rebooking this hotel. Location is also ideal as it is close to key sites that you would want to visit.

    Hotel was located in a central location near some of the main landmarks. The rooms could have been bigger. The air conditioning didn’t work so rooms got quite warm which meant it was difficult to sleep. We were only provided with one key per room even though 2 were sharing so this was a bit awkward. We were told they didn’t give 2 keys. The hotel amenities were good. Breakfast was nice.
