My girlfriend and I had a great and very comfortable stay. The rooms are well equipped, modern and clean. The staff is open-minded, friendly and could always help us with problems (thanks to musta). The breakfast is also recommendable. With a great view, there is a varied buffet that leaves nothing to be desired.

Great hotel, perfect location, and the hospitality at a very high level. Came to Istanbul for a vacation, Azzap hotel is a perfect choice for my trip. The atmosphere is beyond expectations, very classy and elegant. You feel very welcomed and the service is very personalized and customer oriented. The hotel is quite small so you don’t get the feeling that it is busy and crowded. Very nice and calm. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful to me and all of the guests. Very interactive with everyone, make you feel very special. The hotel has a very nice rooftop restaurant with Bosporus panoramic view. I believe it’s one of the best views you can get in Istanbul. The buffet selection is very good and high quality. The restaurant staff is very professional, attentive, paying attention to the details and creating very welcoming atmosphere. I would like to mention Burcu, who works in the restaurant at the breakfast, she is very professional and passionate about everything she does. The way she treats all the guests deserves to be recognized. Makes the stay in the hotel very memorable! The rooms‘ interior is very classy and high end. The bed is big and very comfortable. I have a Nespresso coffee machine and a mini bar which is very convenient for me. There is an another coffee machine downstairs in the lobby, so you can get coffee at any time. Location is perfect for those who would like to explore the city. All the main attractions are walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to come back!
