Loved the location. Stuff were great, always very helpful and supportive. I cannot say it’s a 5 star hotel, rooms are a bit outdated, water in the shower is not stable in terms of the temperature and drain does work that well. I had a room on the first floor directly next to the kitchen ventilation system, definitely not something you expect paying for the 5 star hotel.

This hotel sets on such a prime location in Istanbul. Room size is average but does perfectly fits both of us. Room services are perfect. From desk was outstanding and special thanks to Mr. Rutkey. Lots of tourist places are within walking distance from hotel.
