Excellent hotel close to everything
The hotel is home to besiktas. You have the vodaphone arena (besisktas fc) stadium 5 min walk. You are in walking distance to the vibrant market and restaurant.
The hotel has accolade of rewards including Europe luxury hotel in 2013. The staff are very friendly and concierge service are excellent. They give you answers swiftly. The service of checking in and out are easy and quick. You can also check out online.
We chose to stay the garden view on the 9th floor. You have great view looking at the outdoor swimming pool to the sea and the blue mosque. The room is very spacious including the bathroom. The windows are big so you won't feel claustrophobic.
We also decided to get the free WiFi and breakfast buffet. The internet is good, but ofcours it depends on how many people are using it that determains the speed. But for me, its good enough. The buffete room is big, you have a vast array food which are cooked fresh and well worth adding to your hotel booking.
They have 2 swimming pools.1 inside and 1 outside. You also have a gym, suana room shower experience. All free to use. Apart from tanning and Harman.
They also have shops inside the hotel such as jewelry and Turkish / Iranian rugs, hair dresses etc.
If you want to be treated like kings and queen and be awed by the attention to details then I would seriously consider going to this hotel.
