My experience at the hotel was great. Somebody I will never forget is the bellhop/Room service guy Yusuf. He was so helpful with everything. Gave me great insight and information on Istanbul. Extremely good service. not that we just had a great conversation. Very personable, hard-working guy. The hotel is very nice. The only That was a little off was A little frustrating at times was the room got really hot the air-conditioning would turn on and turn off. Other than that this place is great. Great breakfast beautiful pool great staff I’ll come back again!

On the last morning of my stay, there was no dairy-free milk alternative for breakfast (i.e. almond milk, soy milk or oat milk). I asked the manager in the breakfast restaurant about this and he didn't seem to understand me at first, I then told him that there was almond milk available the last two mornings at breakfast. He didn't seem to care, he didn't do anything to help me and just walked away. Ruined my breakfast on the last day of my stay. Rude. Unhelpful. Not very nice. Very limited range of vegan dishes on the menu. No offer to adapt other menu dishes to make them vegan friendly. Strangely unprogressive approach and very behind the times. There's a lot of vegan friendly restaurants local to your hotel. So it seems that Istanbul is a modern progressive city generally accepting of people who eat a vegan diet. Your hotel is not. Air conditioning in the room was difficult to understand how to use properly. There was no number/information in the room on how to order room service? There was no information in my room regarding restaurant breakfast, lunch or dinner times? Why omit such a standard a small detail like this, making your guests stay difficult and confusing? Television service had nothing on offer for English speaking guests. No streaming services available. So for me, the TV was useless. It would have been nice to have the option to watch a movie or TV show. I never use it in hotels but your mini bar fridge was empty even though I was told during check in that it was stocked. I was asked at checkout did I use anything from the mini bar (after a 3 day stay). Again, attention to detail and communication between staff in this hotel seems poor. Your hotel was reasonably clean but I could see dirt behind lockers and bed. (I could have investigated more to see how dirty it really was but I didn't bother at that point). This doesn't inspire confidence in the cleanliness of your rooms. You obviously have a poorly trained cleaning staff with low standards and attention to detail..
