This Hotel is in my opinion 2 stars but it is rated 4 stars. It is located in Laleli area not far from Blue mosque. Breakfast is limited not to many choices for special need people like vegetarian or diabetics. Internet is available but slow and needs each time to enter a code. Limited international channels in the TV.

Our tour group stayed here for 2 nights. Check-in and luggage service went smoothly. Meals were good although the breakfast buffet was a bit crowded. Room 306 was nice and large with modern furnishings. But there was almost no counter space in the bathroom for our toiletry items. Street noise was discernible. Wifi worked well. We really appreciated that the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights . It is very clean , good location and services. The only thing I must mention the room is very small but it is worth the money we paid on Orbitz . The breakfast is also included and actually more verity than expected

Not impressed with room or some of the staff or food or entertainment. Who wants to go to Turkey and listen to somebody signing on stage in Russian? If I wanted that, then I'd go to Russia. Anyone going to Istanbul, avoid using the taxis. They are a shower of cons by clocking their metres. Was charged €20 for going... More

It features an impressive indoor grotto pool and a spa with traditional hammam, sauna and massage treatments. Marmaray, the undersea rail tunnel, is within 150 metres.

We stayed here as part of a tour group. Your experience here will depend on the room you are allocated. Our room 204 at the beginning of our tour was very noisy. We could hear TV noise from neighbours on either side, the air con didn't work and having to open the window resulted in very loud street noise. At... More
