the breakfast was above average for this type of hotel, we had a sea veiw room and the room was probably betterthan average
Poor breakfast, very noisy location, no parking for the second car (we are 4 persons in 2 cars and we reserved 2 parking places).
The staff were very good and helpful and spoke excllent English. The room was large with an good view over the harbour and was not noisy. The location was excellent as only a short walk to all the major attractions and Grand Bazar as well as numerous restaurants. The supermarket is just across the road.
We were asked to spend the first night at a nearby hotel as the occupnats of our room had to stay 1 more night "because an emergency". We thought that may have happened to another guest.
The bathroom in the room L1 (twin beds) is smaller than a hole. It is so small that the door doesn't even open and you just get in the toilet!!!! The smallest bathroom ever seen in my life in a hotel...
The obliging and helpful staff. That we were within an easy walk to the major sights that we wanted to visit and to the Grand Bazaar. That we were close to a tram stop that took us to the other places we wanted to visit.
The only problem was the difficulty the taxi driver had in finding the hotel. It would be good to mention that it is not far from Cemberlitas tram stop as Peykhane St runs from the main road at that point.
It was a home away from home in its very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The staff were lovely an very helpful with our little 15 month year old child. The location is perfect, within a short walk of all the sites of interest and the shopping. A lovely view from the breakfast area and a garden and internet cafe. Would definitly choose this hotel again.
Good sized room, decor,location and views.
Not the sort of hotel I would recommend for single female travelers.
Hotel has very good location you can walk and go to the Blue Mosque,Topkapı palace and Grand bazaar.Also hotel top flour has restaurant bar with sea and Blue Mosque view.They serve breakfast also same places.Rooms are very Clean, Hotel staf very helpfull and I would like stay again next time.
Perfect location only 3 minutes walking from the Blue Mosque,Amazing Sea view from the restaurant and terace bar,very clean and friendly staff.
The staff was vwery helpful, nice wiew from the topteras.
Breakfest was little poor.
Friendly reception (Mustapha greeted us and explained the layout of the hotel and city to us). The location of the hotel was a great plus, close to the tramway and major attractions anc accross from a small shop where you could buy chips, chocolates, beer and cold drinks. A trip on the Bosphorous straight by boat was organized at a drop of a hat and we were kept abreast of pick up times well in advance.
My understanding was from the website that the Hotel offered a shuttle service between the airport and the hotel. I got no reply to two e-mails that I sent requesting to be picked up at the airport (shuttle service) and had to arrange a taksi upon my arrival at Ataturk. Whilst this was not hugely problematic, I do not understand why the hotel did not reply to my e-mails.
The location was great and the staff were adorable - helpful, friendly and accommodating.
Would be nice to have breakfast served on the terrace!
The sea view is very nice from balacony the service is very nice parking is good enough
The breakfast is little assorted the balacony is damaged and dirty
everything was very good , staff , hotel facilities , food , location ...ect and I would like to give big thank to Mr. Hakan for his nice and good support ( realy he is very nice guy )
The staff was pleasant and friendly. The area for breakfast was nice. The location is the best point about this hotel. Please see our other comments- despite some positive aspects of this hotel- we would not stay here again. We ignored what we read on the Booked.net comments and the pictures made us think that it was nicer than the hotel really is. Yes, the location is good and staff were good but you can get that anywhere. We suggest that you take the negative comments seriously or you will be disappointed! Breakfast wasbasic but "adequate". Roof top was okay but too cold to eat or stay up there right now. This is not a good hotel- it is an "OKAY" hotel- probably a rating of 7 better reflects the reality of this hotel overall.
If you are looking for a "Good hotel", this is not it! It does not deserve the "good" rating. The pictures on the internet are deceiving- the reality is that the pictures are dated- the "garden" was dirty and unusable. The room was "adequate" but the power went off during our stay as did the water. If we had known the realitry of this hotel- we would not have stayed here. The shower had no door (it was broken off) and the shower head mechanism fell off during a shower. The sink was "shakey", and unstable. We put a "do not disturb" sign on the door but the maid came in anyway and put all of our belongings in the drawers- we had not asked for this. She threw away the extra bars of soap as well. The location is great- but there are nicer hotels nearvy as well. The staff started out pushing tours but backed off when we said "no thanks". Again, Please be aware that the pictures on the internet and on their website do not reflect the reality of the hotel look. I was very disappointed in the look of the hotel. The bed was okay- only because there was a nice down comforter and again- the room is "just okay". Beware of the false advertising of this hotel!
