Positive Reviews

Central location

Guests find the hotel's location ideal for exploring Istanbul. It is close to a metro station and other public transport, and offers easy access to the airport. Travellers like that most major sights, including the Sultanah neighbourhood, are within walking distance. In addition, guests say that the immediate area offers ample dining and shopping opportunities. Shopping enthusiasts are especially glad to have The Grand Bazaar just a short stroll away.

Negative Reviews

Missing amenities

Guests are often disappointed with the poorly functioning amenities in the rooms. In many reviews, guests report having an inefficient air conditioner, slow Wi-Fi, or even burnt-out lights. Travellers think that a hotel that claims to be a luxury property needs to maintain the rooms far better than it currently does.

Cleanliness concerns

Many guests think that the hotel needs to drastically improve its housekeeping. In many reviews, guests say that their rooms and bathrooms are simply dirty. Others complain about poor smells, either from sewage or cigarettes in the rooms.

Poor breakfast

Travellers are not satisfied with the hotel's breakfast. The limited menu offers very little variety of dishes, none of which are impressive. Guests also find the food a bit boring, as the buffet doesn't change much from day to day.
