    The view.

    The room was not ready when we came. The cleaning people left their cleaning items in the room. Even we did not use the mini-bar, they tried to charge us for. Telephone bills (local) were extremely high. The juices were watered down and could not drink. The next door guest had fights with his family that interrupted our stay. A/c did not properly work and after several complains, still was not working properly. Overall, we were very unhappy during our stay.

    A very well fitted hotel with all facilities to a high standard. Staff were very helpful and answered every query/ issue we had very efficiently. We arrived at 3am but they certainly appeared to know we were coming and handled our arrival quickly so that we got to bed asap and without any fuss. When we needed to check in our flight on-line they printed our boarding pass with utmost efficiency. Nothing was too much bother for the staff and they were always friendly and courteous. The room had charging facilities for many types of electronic device and even when my old Nokia needed a charger, reception supplied me with an appropriate charger. The price we paid appeared to be half of what they normally charged. I would not want to afford the full price; it was good value at the price we paid.

    Nothing really that we did not like. Our visit was entirely pleasant even up to when we left. The porter was only too happy to order a taxi and reassured us that we had plenty of time to get to the airport and told us how much to expect to pay

    It is new hotel with good view on bosphorus.. The room size and design is good.. There breakfast was very good.. They have skyview restaurant in the last floor with very nice view over bosphorus and the bridges..

    The reception staff were extremely rude and not helpful at all.. I asked them to reach istnypark mall which is one of the most famous malls in Istanbul but they couldn't help me at all and they were very rude and unprofessional in there reply to me... And during the check in they will give you some maps and brochures and that's what they can help you with... I've been shocked when I discovered that the hotel location is bad for Taksim square because to go by walking from the hotel to taksim you need climb up a hill for about 10 mins to reach Taksim square so I won't recommend it for elderly people or who can not walk in tough ways.. And because it is not cheap and there are around 3 hotels near Taksim squar than this hotel I wouldn't recommend it...

    View from the corner suite! Small friendly smart and fantastic location. A new Hotel which will quickly build its reputation

    The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The thing about this hotel is the view of the Bosphorus and the morning sun, from one's room (make sure to get one with that view!) and from both roof and street level verandas. The bathrooms are great, even if largely transparent, and we never flooded ours, though it seemed likely once or twice. Super comfortable beds made for very good sleep. And the spa finished the job of relaxation.

    Some of the woodwork (drawers, mirror units) was oddly flimsy for a place of these aspirations. Food and drinks were rather expensive. (Don't ignore the kebab house next door: it is much more than the fast food joint it looks). Some problems associated with recent opening such as not all the food menu being available and the mini-bar list having little relation to the actual contents. I wasn't always sure my english was fully understood by some of the staff, but we survived fine.

    The sea view from the top floor restaurant and from our room was great. The room was fairly clean and the decor was pleasant. I thought they served very good food - fresh and uncomplicated. I loved fresh herbs & vegetables, and local cheese. There is a sunny terrace that we enjoyed during breakfast.

    The staff did not come across very professional. For a hotel that markets itself to foreign customers, the level of English language among the staff was low. We have booked a room with a sea view, and I have sent an e-mail to the reception desk to inform that we will be checking in late. They never acknowledged my letter and upon our arrival they gave us a different room (worse than what I booked) without any notice. It is only when we have enquired the reception desk after seeing the room they told us that the hotel was overbooked. Our rooms were changed on the next day. But we spent the first night in a very small and noisy room.

    The location and the view of the golf.

    We have to say we are not really satisfying with this hotel. The reservation center is not considerate enough, who is not think of the guest only think about the payment. We stay in the royal suite, which considerat to be the best room in the hotel; but there are many things make us surprised; The design is really not good enough for many aspects: no desk! No plug in the shower room! The only plug is out side the door which you cannot find it in the opening direction. Not enough paper in the toilletet, you have to check everyday by yourself; and the toillete is in the same space with the bedroom even there is living room. When you have a shower the water will flew everywhere. Service: the staff are friendly, but the service are really amater, they dont know how to serve their guest. When we ask recommendation of the local restaurant the only result is their own restaurant. All in all, through the view and the location is perfect but due to all the other things, it is not a professional hotel;

    Location and excellent staff and facilities. Must visit the roof terrace to see Istanbul, especially at night, but the food is not up to the facility or the view.

    My wife found the bed very uncomfortable and had trouble sleeping. I was in the same bed and had no trouble but, then, I never have trouble sleeping, even on a plane!

    smell, they have drainage problems that would be unacceptable to many.

    We liked it very much. There cannot be a better hotel than this! It has the best views of the Bosphorus from your room and the rooftop restaurant. It is close proximity to the central areas of the city and the transportation is very easy. Their complimentary breakfast is a feast! Even if you're on a diet, there are so many varieties you can try. On our last day we had to leave very early in the morning, we were going to miss breakfast, and they gave us a breakfast box to go! We will stay there again when we go back to Istanbul.

    There was a sewage smell coming from the shower. They didn't know where it was coming from, but we assumed it was the shower. We bought some some candles and the problem was solved. However, the same kind of smell was dominant in the city, so I assume it was a city issue rather than the hotel.

    Location, hotel facilities and cleanliness, helpful staff, great view on the bosphorous for rooms with sea view.

    A bit pricey.

    It was a really enjoyble experience staying at this hotel. Everthing was perfect. Spacious rooms, nice and modern decoration, kind and helpful staff, clean, comfortable. The location is ideal, a 5 mimute walk to taksim square. The fact that it offers free private parking is very convenient. High-speed and free wi-fi, free hamam and sauna facilities, fully equiped and big gym. The breakfast bouffet had a great variety and good quality. The restaurant at the roof offers a magnificent view to Vosporus! Everything was perfect, I definitely recommend this hotel and I would be happy to stay again in a later visit to the city.

    They ofer any kind of service (spa, hammam, gym, external swimming pool, restaurant..), breakfast is gorgeous and they have a nice view on the bosphorus from the top terrace. Location is close to taxim and kabatas: that means close to the tram for sultanahmet, to the ferry harbour and to all beyoglu nightlife.

    We had a room with city views at first floor, looking at a very jammed street. People from the street could stare into our room and it was very much noisy. To be able preserve some privacy we were forced to keep the curtains closed all the time. Do not take city view rooms. The external swimming pool is on shadows all day but 1 hour at noon.

    Just an excellent Hotel for those who appreciate comfort, style and attitude. Especialy needed to mention the staff. Very carring, helpful and good looking)) For Russians who do not speak foreign languages there is a jewel, Oxana. Can arrange anything you need nicely, quickly and easily. Dinner at the top floor with Bosphor view and excellent selection of dishes is just a perfect end of the day. Gym is above all expectations. Spacy, good equiped. There are even chargers for IPhone on the roller. Go there, you will not regret!!!!
