          4.2

          the conference hall at the top floor was v. comfortable &had a nice atmosphere.Some of the staff were trying to be helpful& did try their best to be so.Nice Lobby

          Lack of air conditining,we had a cramped double room which was being used as a triple--despite paying for triple--poor view from the window.....

        • Couple
          5.4

          Nicely situated. The bus station was very close. Beautiful view.

          The air conditioning was not working and we had to wait more than half an hour, while the weather was extremely hot, for the technical service to come and repair it. This happened twice.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          I liked the view of my rooms the hotel was clean the location was grate

          Breakfast poor . we had ants in our room . they could nt solve the problem swimming pool was very cold enviroment and the water . we could not use it . lobby was too small . information by staff was not right many times. Expensive

        • Group of friends

          Location

          I have never been a place that is so uncomfortable... There was a night club near the hotel and music never stopped until 05.30 and I could not sleep whole night. Also the walls between the rooms are very thin, every footsteps were in my room.. If you dont want to sleep, you can choise that hotel

        • Group of friends
          7.0

          The entrance to hotel was nice design I like the location and the pool was lovely, good size and warm. It's good that the elevator takes you straight to the pool. The room was clean and good size, the staff were friendly. The batroom was nice and the shower was great and powerful and hot. It was comfortable overall

          They don't provide a kettle for tea, they charge you for hot water 4.5 lira. They don't provide you with an Iron, they charge you for this in the laundry service which I think is not right for a 4 star hotel. They don't allow you to have vistors to you room or allow to bring food in. The pool was free but charge 25 lira for the Sauna and then 25 lira for the Turkish bath for each visit. They only validate your room card for 3 days so I couldn't access my room and had to go back down to reception to get it re-validated. The rooms with the view are small and noisy beside the main traffic outside, the rooms at back of hotel are bigger and quieter however the walls are thin so you can hear the people next door talking.

        • Single
          6.2

          Nearness to Beyoglu disctrict, reasonable price. Cleanliness of room.

          Too much noise from the street due to constant traffic close to the hotel. No view from the side, few meters from another bulding featuring an erotic bar with glowing lights! Breakfast just adequate, nothing special.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          Fairly convenient location, fair price.

          Non-smoking room smelled of stale smoke. Reception stall slow to check in & not overly helpful.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Rooms are clean, staff friendly and helpful, hotel is on major road next to golden horn, close to restaurants and bars

          Rooms are rather small, the door-cards frequently failed and had to be reset at reception, the windows are of poor quality which means lots of noise from traffic, the quality of the breakfast is poor, the pool is closed in the morning, the restaurant frequently closed or booked for weddings
