I was visiting Turkey from New York, and had the opportunity to to stay here a few nights, had issues with online booking reservations thought the experience was going to be a nightmare , on my birthday weekend to, the hotel managers did a amazing job with everything they are top notch first class they are a big reason this is a 5 star review only because the managers saved the experience with how professional they handled the situation… but back to the Hotel!! This hotel has one of the most gorgeous & breathtaking views on the planet, it sits next to the Zorlu Mall which is def a place you want on should be on your bucket list… walking distance from the hotel, and the trip alone is a trip on its own!! So amazing but def a great hotel to stay at, def worth the price for the area!! Great location and nice amenities in this hotel from the food to the entertainment!! I would Love stay here again on my next visit.

Went here for a company conference and stayed for about three days. The staff was very helpful and polite. They even upgraded our room for a late check out free of charge! Breakfast buffet meal selection was quite wide and the food was very decent. Out room was cleaned twice a day and it was all very subtle - we were not disturbed at all. The spa amenities are very nice - there is a nice indoor swimming pool and a large, well equipped gym. Saunas and steam baths, hamam massage rooms etc. If you are into pizza, there is a nice pizza place by the lobby. As a conclusion, I can say that this is a great place to stay in if you have business in Istanbul.
