                Good hotel with a perfect ratio benfit/cost during winter. Spectacular breakfast/dinner in the 18th floor. Room clean and confortable.

                Swimming pool wasn't available for 2 of the 5 days of my stay. Only part of the staff speaks English.

                Location of the hotel was fine

                It is impossible to find someone to assist you in reception or guest relation. We booked dbl room but everyday they put towels for only one person. I was in Suit room but minibar in the room was not working and they could not solve the problem. I think for this kind of high rate hotel is giving only three star hotel service

                Nice hotel with beautiful view on Bosfurus South Bridge at breakfast. Clean and confortable rooms.

                Hotel services are not at level of this 5 stars hotel. Not all staff speaks English and one that loundry service "forgot" to pick up laundry bag.

                Just the price is rather high comparing to the same kind of hotels with the same facilities

                The hotel met my highest expectations for comfort, luxury and personal service. It was a little out of the way and very pricey, but worth it as a business class hotel.

                The main breakfast room on the 18th floor was crowded and service was slow. However, the VIP breakfast room (with fewer options) on the 11th floor was almost empty and service was great.

                It is a quite place.

                The hotel did not have available any disinfectant that I needed for a small size wound, I asked for a farmacy service but they were unable to provide it. A friend of mine left at the reception a button belonging to my jacket providing my name and asking to deliver it to me. The staff never informed me neither delivered it to my room, besides when I asked a few times where was my button they claimed that it was never given to them. Clearly they did not care and threw it away. I consider all this an extremely poor behavior particularly in an hotel that claims 5 stars.

                It was my 3rd stay at Point Barbaros. no doubt - my favourite hotel in Istanbul which I visit 7-8 times a year. Everything was just perfect as usual from the very first minute till the last one. We were very sorry to leave.

                A new hotel. The assistant to the Customer relations, day time, was excellent, we did have a problem with making Airline reservation, she clearly went out of her way to solve it, her manager (Zaineb) did stop her from being nice to us !!!!. What ever your name was, We really thank you, typical nice Turkish behaviour.

                Air condition was below average, TV was below average, complicated.

                Brand new. Very well planned and designed. Extremely comfortable. It has a style too.

                Extra bed was not ready for my little son and we had to wait for about 20 min. around midnight before we all went tp sleep. Nothing to exaggerate but one of the walls was not properly cleaned. That's all.

                I can't think of anything good

                Badly trained staff. Poor English language skills. Slow in response. Impolite. Noisy lift bells even during the night.

                The place is very good The staff is friendly The rooms are big and lexury The bed and the below are comfortable

                The T.v channels should have more from non Turkish channels because your guests are from different countries so you should have Arabic and English channels plus the sports channels The bathroom door is transparent glass and since the bathroom is a very private area .. the door should not be glass or at least not transparent.

                The whole things with the hotel were great experiences. Firstly, we arrived early in the morning after a long night flight, at 8 a.m . We were grateful when we were offered our very excellent and comfortable room within an hour at 9 a.m, although most of hotels do not do that..! The whole room was compeletely ok, including the bathroom, the bed and our 1 year old beloved son had a very nice cot ready at room, the design, the fridge and mini bar, every thing was perfect. During our stay, the staff were totaly cooperative and suuportive and helpful especialy with our little son. The restaurants in hotel especialy the Point rest. in the top floor are fantastic, but a little bit expensive.
