The guys at the front desk are very helpful and do a great job with all guests. They are awesome! The housekeepers also do a nice job. The hotel is very nice, overall. The hotel also has an elevator. Breakfast has a large variety and is a great start to the day. The only downfall is that some public transportation groups have a hard time driving on the narrow streets the hotel is on. If you can walk, then it should not be a problem at all. You can walk a few blocks away and find a larger street. The streets around the hotel can be a little steep. I would stay here again!

This is a phenomenal hotel. We had few issues and they took care of us. Like immediately!!! Staff here are attentive and they really defined the true meaning of customer service. I am thankful to Ali, their staff who helped me with my luggage when I lost my key to open it. He brought tools so we can unlock my luggage and we did it. They really take care of their guests and I do hope management recognizes Ali’s hard work. He is beyond amazing. In addition to this, they have a great selection of breakfast. Overall, a pleasant hotel and I would recommend this place to whoever is going to visit Istanbul. Location is also close to everything.
