Positive Reviews

A wonderful breakfast

Breakfast is considered to be first class and enhanced in no small way by the restaurant's stunning views of the Bosphorus.

The setting is little short of perfect

Guests love the location which, from a noise angle, is far enough away from the busy old town; but it is still an easy walk to get there. Locals say that the best city views are to be enjoyed from the Bosphorus ferries, the point for which is a few minutes’ walk away. The area behind the hotel is where guests can immerse themselves in the atmosphere engendered by the many bars, restaurants and shops.

Negative Reviews

Sense of cleanliness and security lacking

Guests are surprised to find that non-smoking rooms smell heavily of stale cigarettes. Left over dishes from room service are piled up in the corridors and don’t get cleared on a regular basis. There is consternation too when guests return to their room to find that cleaners have left the balcony door open as an obvious invitation to intruders.

Less than stellar service

There are many disgruntled reports of cleaning staff enter the room unannounced at all times of the day and night and many feel that some of the reception staff would benefit from attending a course in customer relations. English speakers often feel frustrated by the lack of English ability demonstrated by the staff. Generally and unlike most hotels, there seems to be a reluctance to provide the guest with information on the hotel’s own facilities and places of interest in the surrounding area. Expected services such as assistance with luggage transportation to the room, just don’t exist.
