Perfect location, good atmosphere, very nice views,
Staff was efficient and courteous.....however the beds need definately improvement...the mattresses felt like they had been used by very heavy overweight people with a definate hole in the middle. We stayed in room 401 which sizewise was ok but had very few hangers for hanging clothes.
New mattresses absolutely necessary... they should also provide a little more light in the corridors of the hotel... it was almost pitch dark and one had difficulties to insert card to open room doors.
Cleanliness of room, facilities unavailable, E.G. we couldn't rent an iron after 6 pm - it's marasmatical
Comfortable accommodation, good breakfast, excellent location, amazing views.
A suggestion would be to supply extra tea and coffee for guests staying longer than one night.
Lovely views of the Blue Mosque, Bosphoros and Aya Sophia. The hotel was very central but tucked down a side road and it was great to have that sense of escaping the crowd and yet be only a few minutes walk away from so many amazing sites. the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. i would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Fantastic view from room and restaurant.
Breakfast is below the level of 4* hotel.
Location and cafe on the roof (not for cousee but again for it great location)
Old furniture in rooms
The loacation in the old part was nice.
The breakfeast was very poor. If you want you use the wellness facilities you had to pay 15 euro pr: day :-( Very expensive.
staff were excellent
internet connection was subject to problems
The location and view were very good
The only luxurious aspect of the hotel are the room prices. Given the price we were expecting something better than old furniture, staff that would not make the room in the afternoon and soap/shampoo coming from an dispenser attached to a wall. The worst was the minimalist breakfast supposed to last until 10:30 but which is almost empty at 9:30 and with staff starting to dispose of it at 10:15. Hotel does indeed have a gym, massage and jacuzzi, but you have to pay just for "general facilities access", and again for the activity you choose. We don't recommend this hotel, there are many better ones with same location advantage!
Rooms not very spacious but quite clean and well-maintained. Comfort is ok, but not exceptional. Furnishing and decoration need update.
Breakfeast buffet might be a bit more refined. Overall, acceptable value for money but there are better options available. The view is magnificent on the 6/7 th floor.
Very convenient position for visiting the old town and the local attractions
The room was extremely hot as the air conditioning was ineffective, no air conditioning in the breakfast room, staff not particularly helpful.
The airconditioner is not working at the hotel .I adviced this hotel to my professor scientist colleguaeas .One them recently visited May 30 2010 from Taiepei and he told me that the airconditioner is not working Only fan is working . at that time I warned the hotel service . then for the SSIEM meeting I stayed and 3 of my other collegueas booked and stayed one from Belgium and the others two from UK and we had still the same problem air conditioner was NOT working I complained about this to hotel service and they told me that they can not do anything for that. It is not good for hotel that has a very nice location . I am sure , you will have more pressure on this air conditioner fixing or having a new system there Thank you
Unfortunatelly the air condicioning didn t work any day!!!!!
best view from our room (704) and from the restaurant, excellent (Turkish) breakfast, perfect location
WiFi not stable (in 7th floor)
