We booked this hotel as my friend found this one on TripAdvisor when we were planning the trip. It sure was worth coming. Already when we booked, we got the confirmation and a PDF telling about the sightseeing - a perfect and slightly addictive trick. I looked at the tips and was waiting for the vacation really much, probably never as excited as this time as I already had a nice hotel to wait for.
When we got to the hotel, the guy opened the door and was taking our bags from the taxi trunk before we even had gotten out of the car. The inregistering was nice and right after that we were invited to hear som details. We got very good tips on what to do and what to avoid in Istanbul. Also a number to our own lady, which we could call 24/7. After the tips/instructions session, we were taken to the roof where we got drinks and advie to sit and rest for a while. After we were finished with our drinks, we went back downstairs to receprion desk, where we got escorted to our rooms and where the luggage had already been carried.
The room was beautiful, eventhough we didn't have the nicest view (it was towards inside of the building). The breakfast was nice as well. And every morning they had ona A5 telling about the weather, things to do and some Turkish frase to be learned.
There's always a tea moment in the afternoon, where they offer coffee/tea and some snacks + always a nice local treat.
The service level of this hotel is the best I have never ever seen anywhere. The attitude is positive and everything will be arranged. i centainly will come here again if I travel to Istanbul.
