Good view but not worth it

Posted Sep 12, 2017
completely different from the pictures. The hotel is old and I will not believe that it's a 4⭐️ Hotel.it looks like 2-3 star. Everything is worn and not working properly. The room was clean but not comfortable. The wifi was super slow and in some places of the hotel not available at all. The gym had no A/C and under bad condition. The 6 floor terrace has a good view but if you having your breakfast or eating food, there is a great chance one of the many ravens to steal Your food or to find a feather in your plate. Really hygienic! Since that happened to us we stopped eating outside on the terrace. For 4star hotel there is no iron and the only option to get ironed your dress is by paying. I am really disappointed as I expected bigger professionalism and customer service also. In overall bad experience, never will use this hotel again and I will not recommend it to anyone.

500 metres from the Blue Mosque

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Pros: Sorted out interconnecting rooms for me and my children. Very conveniently located. They also do early evening tea/cofee with cakes and snacks.
Cons: The ensuite bathrooms are tiny and require better ventilation.
Location: Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, parks all within walking distance.
Everyone loved having breakfast on the balcony overlooking the Blue Mosque and the sea. The views are spectacular.

Hotel right in the middle of Sultanahmet!

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Pros: The position, the cleanliness and the view from the restaurant.
Cons: The breakfast was generally monotonous!
Location: Excellent location. Close to all key attractions ie within walking distance and a pleasant stroll down to the Bosphorus & Galata bridge
Excellent hotel right in the middle of Istanbul & all the key sights....Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, Topkapi etc. Room was excellent and the breakfast was adequate if a little repetitive. Some more cereal options and fruit would have improved matters. The view however from the restaurant was spectacular!

Average hotel

Posted Jul 2, 2017 on Hotels
The over all experience was good, location was outstanding, the housekeepers and bellboy or porter (who helps with the luggage) they were outstanding, the receptionist on the front desk was less than expected and need coaching (lack of smile and not very welcoming), no air condition in the lobby and weak wireless internet in the room was disappointing for this level of a hotel, Breakfast was good and the area had an outstanding view.

My experience of this hotel was not so impressive, on arrival at the hotel the gentlemen at the reception was rude and disrespectful. We had booked transfers from airport to hotel and video ce verser, firstly the driver didn't turn up, when mentioning this to staff he had said he was waiting at the airport 2hrs before the flight had landed!!! Which in fact didn't make sense. The room says water is provided but wasn't and had to pay 5 Turkish lira Overall my experience wasn't as fantastic as described!!
