Three days before check-in, the hotel sent an email inquiring about our stay plans, purpose, and any specific needs, showing thoughtful consideration. I particularly want to express my gratitude to Guest Manager GIZEM. As a welcoming gesture, we received a delightful welcome cake, and my daughter praised it as the best taste in Istanbul. When she wanted more in the evening, we inquired about purchasing, and they kindly sent us two more cakes. We were deeply touched by their meticulous care and want to express our thanks once again. The room boasted a beautiful sea view, and even on rainy days, we could heal by gazing out the window. I've already planned to return when the weather is good. All staff members were friendly, efficient, and professional, from the check-in staff to housekeeping. Thanks to everyone. The breakfast was well-prepared, and the advantage of enjoying it while overlooking the sea was wonderful. While our stay was highly satisfying, if I were to point out a minor downside, it would be the Happy Hour offerings at the club lounge, which seemed lacking compared to other hotels. The absence of desserts and salads gave a sense of insufficiency. Nevertheless, with the fantastic view, clean facilities, and the caring attitude of the friendly staff, I highly recommend this hotel as a top choice.

Fabulous hotel… but expensive with food… the club Sandwich was delicious… friendly , helpful staff… the roof top bar is amazing… a definite must when in Istanbul… the live entertainment was amazing at club 212 if I got it right and the views incredible ( can see the blue mosque, galata towers, famous bridge…) and romantic… drinks in terms of alcohol very expensive like every where we went…will definitely come back for the rooftop entertainment and stunning views👌😍💃
