Positive Reviews

Wonderfully evocative location

Visitors tend to fall in love with Ortaköy, a charming district which has retained much of its former fishing village character. Reviewers particularly like the bars and cafes clustered around the waterfront and the lively flea market held on Sundays.

Top quality service

Reviewers say many kind things about the hotel's staff. Guests admire the high levels of customer service provided and appreciate how most employees speak English. Receptionists earn the highest praise.

Gorgeous views

The hotel's premier location overlooking the Bosphorus ensures spectacular views are on hand 24/7. Travellers love taking in the famous glittering blue waterway over breakfast each morning.

Negative Reviews

Noise can be an issue

Because Ortaköy is a trendy area, the district as a whole tends to turn into something of a party zone on weekends. Reviewers say guests can expect to hear noise from nearby clubs and bars late into the night on Fridays and Saturdays.

Guest rooms could be better

Visitors observe that the accommodations, though pleasant to look at, are not without their faults. Tired decor, limited space and a complete lack of wardrobes are some of the most commonly highlighted complaints.

Lifts are too small

Guests aren't impressed by the amount of space they have to play within the hotel's lifts. Reviewers say they're so small you can barely get a few people in them at any one time.
