    Miss-sold the hotel, but the staff are great
    The good stuff: - Great location. A 10-minute walk to the main sights in Old Istanbul - The staff are brilliant, they cannot do enough for you. - The downstairs spa and pool are brilliant. Really relaxing sauna, steam room and pool. The bad stuff: - The hotel is not 4 star as advertised, the interior is reminiscent of a 1970’s Blackpool bed and breakfast, rather than a 4 star hotel in a city centre. Furthermore, the room is noisy, we have barely slept a wink and were awoken by the cleaning staff at 8am. - The advertised ‘Free airport shuttle’ actually costs 30 Euros - The advertised hotel Wi-Fi continually logs you out, making it impossible to do anything meaningful

    Poor service
    The service at this place is just shocking. Most of the staff do not speak English. Worse most seem undertrained for their role. We had to show the girl in the bar how to use a cork screw for a bottle of wine which another table had ordered. When you enquire about anything you just get ‘no!’ It was just bizarre. Those at the front desk who can’t help you just tell you to wait but then don’t actually bother to find anyone else to help you. We weren’t the only guests this was happening to.

    Nothing like a four star more of a budget hotel
    Very deceiving it's nothing like a four star hotel. Service is not so great. Only good as a location. Rooms are very small and old needs major renovation.
