Editorial review:

This contemporary conference hotel is located on a hilltop overlooking the Bosphorus. It has spacious, relaxing rooms, many of which have amazing views (and these cost extra). The pool area is nice for those who want to relax, and the rooftop bar is outstanding. The breakfast served on the terrace has great pastries and breathtaking views. Critics disliked the location in the middle of skyscrapers.

  • Clean/modern rooms - Gorgeous terrace - Great restaurants - Extras very expensive
  • Close to nisantasi - Staff were very attentive - Comfortable bed - Big swimming pool
  • Beautiful gardens - Views of the bosphorus - Breakfast is great - Worth the price
  • Great hotel - Rooms were very nice - Service is perfect - Highly recommend it

        The allocated rooms for the Booked.net may be increased since at my recent stay i could reserve a room from Booked.net just for one day I wanted for two days but beacuse it was not shown on your website although the half of the hotel was avaliable so I could do the second say reservation from reception directly.

        Spacious and well decorated rooms.

        Bathroom amenities not sufficient for 2 guests and not replenished on a daily basis. Mini bar items replenished only upon request. Evening room service rather erratic.

      • Older travelers

        We enjoyed the fantastic vue especially from the 17th floor. Also the meridien in front of the window in our suite where I could relax. Fantastic. Thank you !

      • Family with children
        10.0

        Stunning views over the Bosphorous, very spacious rooms. Luxurious hotel. Very good location for visiting Istanbul, taxis are very cheap but also tram and boat transport near. Walking distance from the Dolmabahçe Palace.

        Needs a shop with Turkish exquisite souvenirs, scarves, bath towels, bags, food, spices and so on at a reasonable price.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        The hotel is very comfortable for life, the staff are caring about security for life. Spa service has a good quality and qualification.

        But hotel is pretty expensive for living (for example, breakfast is 34 Euro. In the old city we have had a good breakfast for 10-15 euro for person).

      • Couple

        Excellent attitude from all staff working in the hotel and facilities to maximize our feeling of being in a 100% welcoming environment.

        It was so good , and have excellent Location

        Only Rooms a little Old and I thinks to need renew.

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        The view from the rooms are nice. Also it was nice to have an executive floor room because we can use the executive floor lounge which have breakfast and light snacks around the clock. The check in was fast.

        I didn't like that i requested to have my room cleaned several times and no one responded also it takes you along time to get in hold for room service. The concierge was plain HORRIBLE they recommended the worst restaurant ive even been to also i asked them for reservations in two restaurants for 2 nights and they didnt get back to me and they didnt book anything for us.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        firendliness of staff

        the hotel is a bit old and needs renovation specifically in the room and in the bathroom

      • Single
        6.6

        The hotel is clean and comfortable, spa facilities are good.

        I had a late check-out at the executive floor as I am a executive card holder. While waiting at the lounge I had a coffee and little snack from the open buffet . Even for that I was charged 35 USD. The money was not the case but this manner was very disturbing and hostile.
