  • 2.0.Poor

    Rude, Noisy and Stingy

    We couldn't sleep because of the generator on the roof and construction works in the hotel. The internet is very slow and not suitable for any business meetings. They charged 15 Euros for a very poor breakfast.

    Excellent experience. Check in/out was very fast. The breakfast was excellent. Great variety and quality of food with a great view on the Bosphorous. Staff were very friendly. Mrs.Noktam from room service and Mr.Racep at the reception were very helpful and welcomed us all the time with a nice smile.

    Great all round - except for the wifi

    Good sized room. Great location. Great breakfast buffet (but why are smokers allowed to come to one part of the restaurant and smoke while others have breakfast?!). The wifi is extremely poor. It's also a bit odd that you can't charge meals in the rooftop restaurant to the room.

    Two thumbs Up

    Great Stay!!! The staff where amazing from the front desk "Mehmet Ozan Kose" and his team to the chef and his assistants at breakfast... Very professional very friendly made our stay that much better. The only down side was the construction facing the hotel ... but that did not hamper the hotels mood.
