Best thing about the hotel is the location, central to the main sights and attractions, tram stop right outside = happier feet after long walks around Istanbul. Also good restaurants just south towards the river. The baklava and Turkish delight is excellent at the cafe across the road by the tram stop. Green canopy, forgot the name. ||Overall hotel was pleasant, it was new when we stayed with nice interiors. Staff really friendly and quite helpful. Chef at breakfast is very friendly, makes you feel welcome. Breakfast options are ok, limited and nothing amazing. Rooms are pleasant and overall bed was comfortable.||But the reason I wouldn’t stay again is that sink that sits in your room rather than in a bathroom where it should be. Assuming the designers were trying to be innovative but they’ve just messed that up. It’s weird and I couldn’t get used to it. Imagine having to wash your hands or brush your team in front of your bed. It’s not a dealbreaker for everyone but I just didn’t feel the level of comfort in the room that I want in a hotel. It just felt weird. For that reason, I’d pick somewhere else. Many options in the bonvoy portfolio if that’s what you’re looking for.||Turkish bath house by the tram stop should be a must on your trip. Check timings for men/women and plan ahead.

Nice rooms, average sized but very modern amenities, very clean, good AC, excellent bed and pillows. Staff is very helpful during check-in, all able to speak English. Offered our party complimentary non-alcoholic drinks during check-in and also a handmade friendship bracelet - very nice touch. The concierge and valet showed us to our rooms and brought up our bags, then talked us through how to use the amenities in the rooms. Excellent location near the water, on a flat road (many hills nearby). Rooms are quiet. Haven't checked out the restaurant or gym, or spa yet, but pictures look very nice. Many restaurants, cafes, and stores nearby.
