    Very good

    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.

    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.

    Superb

    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.

    Breakfast is below the level of 4* hotel.

    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.

    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!

    Good

    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.

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
