Great location - short walk to Hagia Sophia, the blue mosque, and the palace. Beautiful hotel with exquisite Ottoman style mother-of-pearl furniture and silk carpets in the room and in the public area. Restaurant on top floor with a fantastic view, served a wonderful breakfast buffet. We ate two great evening meals there too. But best of all was the staff. Volkan the concierge welcomed us, helped us with directions, advice re Bosphorus cruise and restaurant recommendations. All the other staff, sorry I can’t remember names, were superb also - at the door, at the front desk, room cleaners and restaurant service - always helpful, pleasant and good humoured. I would highly recommend this hotel for a visit to Istanbul.

I just finished a 5-night stay at this hotel with my family. We had an absolutely amazing experience. All of the staff are friendly, and they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The food is amazing, we especially enjoyed our room service. The rooms are beautiful. The location is great with a bunch of major attractions in walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul!
