    The staff is very friendly, and helpful. The location is great, right at the heart of the historical section in Istanbul.

    The walls in the room is a bit thin, so noises can easily go through.

    We were given a very warm welcome which started prior to the trip with a welcoming email. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us a small souvenir gift when we left which we thought was a nice touch.

    The hotel is situated on a street with several popular restaurants so it was a bit noisy at night, and would not have been suitable for a disabled person as there was no vehicle access direct to the door.

    The extremely helpful and courteous attitude of the staff; the breakfast spread and the cleanliness around. We have already lined up several of our relations and friends to visit Istanbul and stay at this hotel.

    The staff is very helpful and indeed they make you feel very welcome. The rooms are very nice and kept always clean. We felt very comfortable and the breakfast had such variety. The food was always good. The tram is just one minute away from the hotel - gulhane stop. we recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to enjoy his holiday in istanbul.

    Please be careful if you are going to use the phone with an international card cos they charge you just the same. We had this problem and we had to pay an extra fee for doing an international call, even though we werent adviced by the staff when asked.

    excellent location - many major attractions are within walking distance, easily commuted by tram to more distant places of interest; plenty of cafés and restaurants nearby; helpful staff; and funny parrot at the lobby ;-)

    pleasantly suprised with the arrival and departure gifts, staff were fluent in english and well informed about the city tourist attractions.

    pool times too short, should be 24/7 and the pool-water had our eyes burning , tearing and shut for hours! honestly.
