Top Hotel
A very impressive hotel. When you walk into the lobby it looks like a flashy museum and is very well appointed. Service is superb, the room was very big, clean comfortable and the welcome pastries were a very nice touch. The room has everything you might ever need in it and the shower and bath are very nice with top branded soaps etc. The pool and gym areas were also very impressive, clean, well equipped and were nice and relaxing. Sadly i didn't eat there this time but have been to the Chinese restaurant previously and it is extremely good. Location wise is very good as it overlooks the Bosphorus (some rooms get a view) and is next to the ferry terminal so you can easily catch a ferry. Its at the bottom of the hill in besiktas so easy walking distance to many shops and restaurants and a short taxi from the main tourist areas of Istanbul. Overall a very good hotel.
