We had a really memorable experience at this hotel and stayed here twice at the beginning and end of our Turkey trip. There was just a feeling about this place that made it feel like home - the people who work here and run the place are incredibly welcoming and personable. The breakfast was really good, and the dining space has a very aesthetically pleasing atmosphere and view. The location is also so convenient for some top sites. The second time we stayed, we genuinely looked forward to being there again and seeing friendly faces. We also used the private car service to / from the airport the second time and were happy we did, as it was a much more pleasant experience than getting a taxi and not a materially different price. Definitely would recommend to any family or friends who will be traveling to Istanbul in the future!
