    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.....

    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.

    Fabulous

    The concierge and staff were very attentive and helpful. And the breakfast buffet was excellent!

    It was quite difficult to get in and out of the bathtub because of its height. Perhaps you could install a bar to hold on to. (Others in our tour group felt the same way.)

    Fabulous

    The hotel staff were very helpful on the day we left as the may day parade went past the door so they took us and our luggage to meet a taxi behind the hotel. The hotel was very clean and had free internet.

    short noisy parties at the back of the hotel which woke us at night. I also would have liked some fresh fruit at breakfast. Which was good otherwise.

    Exclusive

    Loved every moment staying in this hotel. It has "museum" type of lobby which will impress you from your first step. Staff was very polite and helpful with all my requests. Location is amazing - just exactly what I needed. Was a bit scared that AC wouldn't work after reading reviews - but everything worked very well. Sunset view is just amazing. Thank you guys. Definitely will be back

    Wi-fi was not working in my room.

    Superb

    The location of the hotel is very good. It's on a main street, 100 meters far from the Metro station. The night life areas can be easily reached, but also the touristic locations. The room was spatious, very clean and the provided comfort was according to the no of stars. Although located on the main street, the rooms with view in the back are very quiet.

    You are requested to pay for the room, at check in, not at check out as normal. Very noisy atmosphere in the morning in the hotel (if you want to sleep late).

    I just arrived from Istanbul. I will never forget this hotel. 4 stars ?... No way !. Parking ? ...No way !. They confirm me that exist a parking ...in fact , I gave the key to bodyguard....and every day he kick my car on the street, and in the evening he put it back in an alley ....this is not parking, this is taxi driver. The poll is full by "chimical cleanings" ! you cannot stay too much time inside.Room walls are not soundproof. You can hear the neighbors talking! The restaurant is closed in the evening. In conclusion, I don't recommend

    Fabulous

    The staff were very supportive and gave lots of hints on what to see around Istanbul and how to get there (bus, metro, walk, etc). They were also flexible as we were not hungry and wanted to eat, so the restaurant allowed us to order one meal and share it. They stored our luggage, changed our euro and gave us small change for water and toilets in the city. The staff made the hotel. The massage and body scrub were wonderful. We were busy during the day and it was good to be able to relax at night.

    The day staff were veeery helpful, but the reception at night was manned by a very rude man who did not help at all. Seemed we were just nuisance tourists.
