8/10 Very good

2/10 Poor

This property I did not like it at all. Yes it’s convenient because you have restaurants very close to the hotel. Which is convenient. But is relatively far from the main area in Istanbul. The air conditioning system was horrible, did not cool the room at all. The Wifi connection was horrible.

I absolutely will be back, I enjoy my stay, the staff were extremely helpful. The only thing the I’m not used to is not ice machines…(I think that’s an American thing). But it was perfect. Do yourself a favor and stay here, the view is gorgeous as well. And room service, top notch!!
