Positive Reviews

Property looks the part

The hotel's signature design creates a luxurious style that is rather charming according to visitors. Everything from the rooms to the lobby and even the exterior of the building appears to be in top shape.

One of a kind location

Situated along the Bosphorus Strait in historic Istanbul, the hotel is in a prime location to explore the area. In addition to being able to see Asia from the European side of the city, you'll also be near to Dolmabahce Palace and Taksim Square. Old town Istanbul is also a short drive away.

More than capable staff

Employees at the property have been trained in the fine art of customer service. Guests rave about how friendly and courteous the staff is and also note that they go above and beyond the call of duty to help you.

Negative Reviews

Not all views the same

The view from the rooms of the hotel can be a bit hit or miss. Several guests note that accommodations which do not advertise a Bosphorus view are pretty disappointing and even some of the views of the water can be limited.

Everything is inside

While the property looks great, travellers point out one flaw that they wish would be corrected. Everything at the hotel is indoors, including the swimming pool and restaurants, meaning you can't enjoy any time truly embracing the surroundings.

Breakfast not a favourite

The hotel's breakfast service isn't exactly a must try according to a few visitors who say there aren't a lot of options available. In addition to this, a couple of guests add that service at breakfast can be slow at times.
