      Always welcoming

      This is our 6th time at the hotel. Great Location and staff, Usman from the front desk was very helpful and polite. Overall it's the best hotel in the Karkarkoy area. Look forward to staying again. Great for short stay for a few days. However roof terrace was closed this time so bit of shame. One of reasons i oiek gong there

    • 8.0.Very good

      Beautiful hotel, very central for restaurants and tourist attractions. Super friendly, helpful staff. Lovely clean suite but unfortunately spoiled by the stench from the drains. Offered a room swap but other guests told us their rooms smelled the same. Real shame as this is a really nice hotel.

      Beautiful property and nice rooms, however it should not be rated as 5 stars. Attention to details is almost non existent.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      A lovely, comfortable and well appointed Hotel, but what really impressed us all was how friendly, helpful and charming all the staff at the Hotel were. In particular, a big thank you to Unish who looked after us superbly, apart from being a Liverpool fan, we couldn't fault him! It was a pity the roof-top bar was closed for refurbishments, but I am sure when it's finished it will be stunning. All round and great hotel and if/when I come back to Istanbul, I shall definitely be staying there again!

    • 6.0.Good

      The hotel is more for couples 30 or 40+. Very noisy and breakfast is terrible no options. The rooms are not as it is seems on in the picture, they are tiny. The staff did not speak a great level of English so sometimes was difficult to speak it request for things. All in all The stay was comfortable and clean Saha was very nice and helped us with out stay. The hotel is not designed for children as there are hardly any lights, quite a dark hotel.

      The hotel and staff were very good. The downside was the room was situated on a Lane with a huge amount of noise and disruption throughout the night which made it difficult to sleep

      The property was absolutely fantastic. The room was incredible and all of the staff went out of their way to make sure you had a fabulous time. The breakfast was also amazing! My only criticism was that the fitness centre did not open till 10am and I like to go to the gym before breakfast!! Amazing stay, 5*
