Service in this hotel is outstanding. Everyone at the front desk was excellent but Okan went above and beyond. On the first night of our stay, we found the room very hot. The ceilings are high (which give a wonderful feeling of openness) and the AC was insufficient to cool the room. ||Okan immediately solved the issue by changing the room and we were thrilled with the result. His attitude was not only very professional but also warm and welcoming. ||We received great restaurant suggestions (Sur Balik for seafood and Fiore for Italian) from one of the night staff, whose name I wish I remembered. ||Our room (Panorama suite) had an extraordinary view of the city and was as serene as one could ask for. Luxurious bathroom with super comfortable soaker tub. ||Finally, a late checkout at 3:30pm was made possible for 10 euro extra /hour, which we found quite reasonable. ||Lovely location on the cusp of quiet Cehangir - only a few meters from Istiklal, but felt like an oasis from the madness. ||I rarely give five stars but the people and property deserve it!||Thank you for a beautiful stay!
