Positive Reviews

The views over the Bosphorus

Most guests comment that the hotel offers tremendous views over the Bosphorus - both from its restaurant and from many of its rooms and suites. Many travellers are in Istanbul for the sense of place and history, so a view of the meeting point of Europe and Asia provides a bit of a frisson of excitement.

Great location for public transport

While the area itself is much praised, with comments that there are great sights, cafes and restaurants around Taksim Square, guests especially love the proximity to the metro, and other public transport options. They find it a convenient location to get to and from the airport, as well as get around to Istanbul's major attractions.

Great Turkish hospitality

A great number of guests comment on the enormously friendly welcome they received from staff at the hotel. It seemed every task was carried out in a spirit of true generosity and hospitality to travellers from afar.

Negative Reviews

Rooms a bit small for a five star hotel

While the quality of the rooms was never really disputed, quite a few guests mentioned that they thought they were a little small for a five star hotel. They were definitely expecting bigger rooms.

Nowhere to really sit and relax

A very common complaint, guests felt like there weren't really any truly open public areas in the hotel were they could just sit an relax. The only real area was the restaurant, but of course this is used for dining, not just for lazing about.

Some disappointment if room had no view

This is understandable, considering the importance of the Bosphorus in many guests' minds. The hotel has rooms that face away from the water as well, and some of these have been described as having less than stellar views.
