    Superb

    A luxury 5star hotel, aligned with descriptions in the internet. The staff is very friendly and is clearly trained to solve any problem of the client. The breakfast buffet is really great, the views are sensational and location of the hotel is closeby public transport which is perfect if you want to visit the famous cultural sites in Istanbul. We enjoyed the executive lounge service as a place to relax with superb views.

    The hotel is getting old, however well maintained, but needs modernization. For example, the bathroom is really old and old fashion. The executive lounge service is rather poor and not available whole day long. I am allergic and I suffered a lot in our room because of the cleaning products they used, it might be a recommendation to use non-allergic products to clean.

    We received an upgrade to a corner room on the Executive floor, with complimentary access to Executive Lounge including free breakfast and snacks / drinks during the day; very relaxed atmosphere and nice view. King bed was very comfortable, rooms and service on a high level. Design is a bit old fashioned, but we liked it.

    Not well connected to public transport, but taxis are not expensive and always available.

    Exclusive

    We liked our room and its cleanliness. The personnel at the front desk and the concierge were very responsive. We also liked the environment of the reception area with its magnificent view.

    We were not satisfied with the Gaja restaurant.The food seeks to be very unusual but does not succeed. I ordered a rack of lamb and it appeared partially raw. In general aside from the wonderful view the restaurant is not worth the high prices it charges for the food.

    My favorite thing about this hotel was the fantastic lounge which served breakfast every morning and drinks and snacks at night. Beautiful lounge with fantastic terrace overlooking Istanbul and the water.

    The rooms can only be described as average and the beds were in desperate need of changing. For 350 euros per night seems not to be a great value. The saving grace was the fantastic lounge with the Executive upgrade. Also, the service was awful. Our first night we asked for a local seafood restaurant and they put us in a cab for 45 minutes! Also, booked a private tour with car and wound up having to walk for 40 minutes as the private car only dropped you off and picked you up.

    Spa / health club is fantastic and service standard excellent throughout the hotel.

    Charge for wireless internet is way too high - should be complimentary across the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Hotels location is perfect

    the room wich we take was with view of bosphorus but it was tiney view and room was small. To charge parking fee is not logical for such kind of Hotel and the expensive breakfast wasn't so rich.

    Superb

    The hotel is ideally situated in the European Section of Istanbul and provides in a few minutes, access to the Bosphorus, Palaces, Mosques, Taksim Square, and many other places of interest. The Hotel has a high standard of luxury, and the staff are very professional.

    At the time of booking into the Hotel, we were not informed about any of the facilities provided by the Hotel, and had to learn as we went along.
