This hotel is well located and quite midway between the popular taksim and the other touristy spots in istanbul. Its quite popular with conferences and meetings. The rooms are quite small though given what is available in istanbul otherwise. The elevators are woefully inadequate(just 3 nos) and you could find yourself waiting for quite a while at peak hours. Good service otherwise and couldnt fault this property otherwise.

First time to Beshektash area in the heart of Istanbul and this 17 story hotel is a special one indeed;

A pear shape Lobby with smiling faces and eager to help everywhere.

M1 level ,cozy but spacious sized restaurant to have a nice breakfast with all Turkish specials and goodies . Staff are attentive, welcoming but not intrusive.
Newspapers corner to pick your favourite with a “ reading glasses box of different powers” in case you are in need!

M2 level spa , heated ,clean and reasonable size swimming pool. Also a massage service to relax your muscles with Turkish traditional styles or international treats.

16 level club lounge promised and delivered one of the best panoramic view of Istanbul with a breathtaking view on the Busphorus and bridge as well as the skyline of north and west Istanbul .

My room in the same level was just great with every detail and quietness to sleep in a style and super privacy.

Shopping centres and Malls as well as major attractions are within half an hour walk or 10 minutes by taxi.

Elegant hair dresser saloons are in the same Barbaros street as well as variety of good restaurants.

Will stay again

Building and rooms aren't special, but location and services you can get inside, food included are really top-level. If I can just bring one criticism, I was aspecting to find a better Fitness Center, the equipment is old and not at this level of quality.

The hotel is located a little away from the famous sites but it is easy to get anywhere in taxi or with public transportation. The rooms are great, modern and perfectly clean. Probably have recently been renovated. The staff is fantastic, extremely friendly and helpful. From the bellmen at the entrance to the barstaff at the rooftop bar 212 which has an amazing view. They will help you with whatever you need. And with a big smile. One of the guys, Özkan I think, deserves an honorable mention for being the nicest guy in the hotel! Definitely a hotel I would recommend for a trip to the city!
