Beautiful Hotel with Great Views of Marmara Sea

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 4, 2010

Stayed for 10 days.We were given a beautiful room with panoramic views of the Marmara. I would recommend, if you can, to spend the extra, the views amazing. I could see the Princess Islands from my bed. Coming from a busy city like Dubai, this was just what I needed for my vacation.
The breakfast was good enough, even after 10 days, we were not bored...thats saying alot since I travelled with a fussy teenager, and she was happy enough....Thanks for including the Simit...The breakfast room was hot at most times, we were told that we could eat breakfast on the rooftop, but it was too hot, so we skipped. I had the same view from my room anyway.
The spa is chargeable, reasonable but EXCELLENT. I had a package treatment, the Hamam and a massage. The hamam is private so you can enjoy the experience in comfort. I have to confess, I was at some point out of my senses and just allowed the lady to do her thing....AMAZING. If you staying, dont miss this experience. It was my birthday treat to myself and what a fabulous one. Had one before in Antalya, but this one was way better.
Also there is internet available in the spa area for guests, free of charge which is helpful.
All in all, a great hotel in a lovely location, minutes away from the Blue Mosque, Haga Sophia, etc.
Thank you Ms Zehra, sorry we didnt get to say Bye, and Mr Cenzig, and the wonderful housekeeping staff, always ready to assist with smiles on their face.
You made our visit soo very special.

Unique Quality: Beautiful Views, Great Central Location, Wonderful Service staff and if you do stay here, enjoy a fabulous Hamam treatment.

Good Hotel - Don't ask them to get you a cab

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 5, 2010

This hotel was very nice. Our room had a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus, perhaps one of the best views I have ever had from any hotel I have stayed in.

The view from the roof is incredible of the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus.

The Sultan Ahmet area is nice but probably one of the most touristy areas.

Public internet is there but hard to find. The breakfast was good.

Just don't ask them to call you a cab. There was clearly a kickback thing going on with either the hotel or someone that worked there - where the cab driver overcharged us by almost double (luckily my girlfriend travels to Turkey often and knew what was going on).

Unique Quality: One of the best views I have ever seen of the city and ships moving in and out.
