Positive Reviews

The beautiful Bosphorus...

Guests rave about the waterfront views, both from the premium guest rooms and the hotel's two restaurants. Though it is some distance (30 minutes in traffic) from the city's most famous tourist attractions, guests find that the taxis are relatively inexpensive, and that surrounding neighbourhood is lovely to explore on foot, as it is packed with shops, bars, and restaurants "where the locals eat."

The Super Breakfast Buffet lives up to its name...

Many guests rate the breakfast buffet among the "best ever", noting the selection is wide-ranging, with many fresh and healthy options among the more indulgent choices. There are chefs on hand to cook eggs to order, and even guests who prefer just coffee in the morning can enjoy the exceptional view of the strait.

Clean, comfortable rooms and friendly staff...

Guests widely describe the rooms as clean, comfortable, and spacious, with fast, reliable wi-fi. The staff also receive rave reviews for their friendly, attentive, and professional service. Several recent guests have been impressed to note that the team members are "always smiling."

Negative Reviews

A noisy night for some...

Several guests were kept up at night by traffic noise from the busy street out front, while others were disturbed by the sounds of crowds enjoying the nearby nightclubs.

Time for an update...

A few guests have noted that the decor is beginning to date, as well as show some wear and tear. Several guests also warn their fellow travellers that the bathtubs have fairly high sides, a safety concern for older or mobility impaired guests.

Nobody's perfect...

Though the staff receives many positive reviews, a few guests were disappointed to receive "indifferent" service or found the housekeeping services inconsistent.
