Positive Reviews

Central Besiktas location

This hotel put guests right in the heart of Istanbul's Besiktas neighbourhood, a district located on the European side of the Bosphorus. As such, it afforded guests good access to a number of local sights, including the Dolmabahce Palace. The proximity of Besiktas metro stop - handily located adjacent to the hotel - enabled guests to explore the wider city.

Smiley reception team, good wellness facilities

On the whole, the customer service experience here was good. Guest interaction with reception staff was positive, with many impressed by this team's perennially helpful and ever-smiley demeanour. In terms of its wider amenities, the wellness facilities were highly praised. In fact, many felt that this hotel's spa is one of its better attributes.

Good rooms, good breakfast

The standard of accommodation at this Besiktas property was found to be solid. Many found their rooms to be comfortable, with the beds themselves particularly cosy. With its spread of hot and cold, Turkish and Western offerings, the breakfast buffet here proved to be extremely impressive. Similarly to this hotel's spa facilities, the food options were one of this hotel's more memorable points.

Negative Reviews

Dated bathrooms, foul odours from plumbing

Guests were dismayed to find this property's bathrooms dated and in need of extensive renovation. Many were also bothered by foul smells from the hotel's plumbing.

Thin walls, smoky corridors

Din from the corridors - be it the movements of other guests or the chatter of cleaners - appeared to filter into this property's thin-walled rooms. Many also noted strong cigarette smells in hallways.

Sluggish Internet connection

The Wi-Fi connectivity was another point of contention here. On the whole, guests were frustrated by this amenity, which was found to be woefully slow.
