The hotel has the best service and polite and committed employees. The hotel is in the best area of ​​Istanbul with easy access to everywhere in Istanbul, metro, tram, bus, cruise ship. Easy access to the museum and old places is possible in the fastest time in the busiest time of city traffic. Close to the best dock where the big ships of the world occasionally dock. Full of the best brands and shopping malls and great restaurants and breakfast by the sea. It is a good choice if you have friends and family to travel and meet. Great for long term stay, daily cleaning and service. With a very reasonable price and spending a lot of time to enjoy Istanbul, not the traffic

Kind and helpful staff arranged transportation from the airport and served us tea and coffee upon arrival about 8 pm. We were too tired to go out for dinner so they took our dinner orders and had our meals delivered. Clean and pleasant rooms, comfortable beds, got an excellent night’s sleep. The next morning, Sam helped carry our luggage and guided us on a short walk to the cruise port. The only downside: the neighborhood is sketchy and graffiti covered but it didn’t affect us because we arrived after dark and left in the company of cheery and helpful Sam.
