    Fabulous

    The hotel is good. especcialy good is hotel's personal. the man that works at reception is very helpful and friendly, he hasn't ever advised us something bad! breakfast was also rather good. Hotel's location is very convinient, it's not far from city center. we liked staying at this hotel and would like to stay there again.

    we've stayed at this hotel at the beginning of march. so the only one bad thing about the hotel was temperature in our room! it was rather cold. the person who had to sleep on the bed near the window wasn't lucky.

    Superb

    I had booked for 4 nights as a single person. My boyfriend was away on business at the time and I was not sure if he was able to return to Istanbul. It was fortunate that he was, but there were issues with the Staff. We called ahead to ensure that I was able to change the booking for an extra person and was advised of the cost. This was not a problem, until we arrived at the Hotel. The staff refused to allow my boyfriend of 18 months entry for the sheer fact that he was Turkish. When I complained, they conceded that if my boyfriend was Australian, which is my nationality, then it would not have been an issue. It was a shame they discriminate against their own. I received most of my money back, but calculated afterwards and realised I should have received 679.00TL, not 565.00TL. It is a shame this is not advertised.

    The cleanliness of the hotel is excellent. It's also organized, kind and helpful staff. The hotel has a very good location near the old city districts and monuments and in the same time, it's near Metro, Tram stations.

    A sympathetic and competent staff, always ready to help. Central situation for shopping and cityviewing. Good services inside the hotel (reception, rooms, breakfast and cafe). Nothing to complain about.

    Very good

    The front desk manager was very helpful in attemtping to help me to resolve. some issues.

    Larger rooms are at the front. However, the road traffic is quite noisy, despite good double-glazing The rooms at the back of the hotel are small but generally do not suffer from traffic noise. However, in the basement is a public car park and, in the quiet of the night, the operation of the entry/exit barrier can be heard quite distinctly, at least on the third floor. Also, in the basement is a club/dicso. Music can be heard on the third floor, again in the quiet of the night, albeit not too loudly. The walls of the rooms are very thin and the doors are not soundproofed. I could hear my neighbour snore, hang items in the wardrobe, etc, etc. Too noisy for me! The breakfast is good although most of the breakfstaff are surly and dour.
