                          It was a very nice well appointed hotel

                          My stay was at the height of the travel disruption and we had booked 2 nights but had to leave to get an emergency flight after 1 night.There was high demand for the hotel due to stranded passangers but no refund could be obtained on the night we did not use.I am sure they relet the room and this was not a great experience.

                          The concierge did an excellent job in recommending restaurants and making reservations. He was very good in matching our wishes and mood with a restaurant and in understanding what we were looking for. The room was not very big but beautiful and we liked the bar and terrace.

                          It's a shame you need to pay extra for internet in the room.

                          From the moment we staggered in at 6.am in the morning, we were greeted by smiles, warmth and kindness. The room was superb - loved the outdoor "cabana" - pity the weather did not allow for a siesta there in the afternoon. We had a lovely dinner in your restaurant - again with charming, knowledgable and efficient service. Will never forget the two dogs - that seemingly "belong" to your street and you all love and feed. Thank you for a memorable stay C. & G Seifert

                          As someone of a "certain" age, I would have liked better (read stronger) reading lamps. And turning off the lamps took some "investigative" run-around. Otherwise - all was tops!

                          * Hotel doors in the afternoon. They should learn to clean the rooms at once and not opening and closing the doors 6x for every room x 50 rooms = 300 door slams on 2 hours.

                          The hotel staff is very professional and attentive. The design of hotel is also very nice.

                          It was too dark in my room. I could also hear all the noise from the adjacent rooms, which was particularly irritating at night.

                          The location was excellent for the purpose of my trip, as well as to going around Istanbul and getting to know both the Old City and the "new" part.

                          Very good service but I was very dissapointed with the fact that they never arranged the room at night, a service all 5 stars hotel always do.

                          Stylish, good location, trendy bar

                          Rooms a little small and noisy (had to change room after the first night as woke up at 4 in the morning to sound of local mosque, other guests partying made it hard to sleep next night!)

                          The room was not user-friendly. It looked like a party hotel designed for vary young people.

                          The beds were amazingly comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Lobby was nice to sit in and relax after a hard day of sightseeing, and the free coffee was always welcome.

                          I felt that the rooms were a little bit dark, and in fact the whole hotel was sub-optimally lit.

                          Good location.

                          The room was quite dark and the bathroom lacked privacy and functionality. Also, staff was not very proficient in English.
