Excellent hotel close to everything

Posted 13-May-2016
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.

Stylisches Sauberes und sehr sicheres Hotel

Posted 9-May-2016
Pros: die Sauberkeit
Cons: Rooftop ist traumhaft die Information wäre sehr hilfreich, dass erst Mitte Mai diese eröffnet wird aufgrund der wetterbedingungen.
Location: Es liegt hinter dem Dolmabahce Palast nähe Bosphorus. Nisantasi ist die Haupt Einkaufsstraße der Schickeria. Bosphorus schiffstour
Die Zimmer sind grandios mit seitlichem Meerblick trotz Gartenblick Zimmer. Mit einer separaten Sitzecke sehr gemütlich. Es ist sehr sehr sauber habe ich selten erlebt. Die Lobby ist traumhaft alles insgesamt echt sehr luxuriös. Nicht so gut war, dass das personal zwar sehr nett ist aber manchmal auch verpeilt. Wir waren eine Gruppe von 6 Leuten. Zwei Paare und zwei befreundete Männer. Obwohl mehrmals erwähnt, dass die beiden einzelnetten bekommen sollten bekamen zum Schluss die beiden Männer ein Doppelbett und das Pärchen einzelne Betten und das ganze musste noch einmal umgeändert werden. Auch beim aushecken wurden die Getränke fast doppelt kassiert man muss schon selber aufpassen damit man nicht doppelt zahlt ansonsten alles perfekt. Riesen Frühstücks Buffet aber meiner Meinung nach überteuert.

Beautiful Hotel with nice lobby & facilities

Posted 22-Mar-2016
This hotel is very nice & clean with fabulous breakfast buffet and gorgeous Bosphorus view from lobby and restaurant. There was only one complain about the room. I paid months ago for a non refundable room with Bosphorus view but unfortunately my room had a tiny corner view of Bosphorus that you had to stand in the corner to see any part of the sea. They told they don't have any more full view rooms left which was disappointing. On the Expedia site, there were only regular room or room with Bosphorus view options. So, make sure to request for full view when booking at this hotel. The hotel is in nice & quiet area and 10 minutes walk from luxury boutiques and small shopping mall. It's about 6 minutes drive to Taqseem Square.

Felt special on my wife's birthday

Posted 16-Jan-2016
Pros: Room comfort, friendly and helpful staff, breakfast and the ambience all around the hotel
Cons: nothing
Location: Scenery is great. The location is near to Nisantasi which has a lot of boutique and big stores. So it is also very convenient to walk and shop.
The staff made us really special by giving us surprises during our stay. My wife and I really felt special during our stay.
