Disturbing noise from adjacent rooms due to lack of isolation. Taxi can not stop in front of the hotel But staff assissted us to carry the luggage.
Excellent services and majority of staff are supportive and helphfull. Breakfast menu is reasonable and could be improved.
The Hotel is very well located. You can walk to Shopia, to the Boforo. Also, there are excellent restaurants near the hotel. Is very easy to reach the hotel from the airport ( we use the train and the tram). The staff is great! Don't miss for swim and sauna facilities.
Slow wifi, needs to have repeater on each floor, bathroom exhaust made sound
Helpful staff, interesting location, nice bed, large bathroom
The staff was very helpful and polite. They offered us niceties like free juice and lokum (Turkish delight) as they processed the paperwork. Someone picked up our luggage from the street too. Nice view, spacious room for the price.
The road in front is too narrow and crowded; vehicles may find it difficult to reach. Heavy bags can cause considerable inconvenience to reach the hotel.
Very close to several important tourist sites
Had to pay for water.
Great breakfast and the smiling friendly manager in charge of breakfast
we usually stay in this hotel or one in the near vicinity as it is convenient and within easy reach of the places that we visit in Istanbul. staff are always pleasant and helpful transport of all types is within easy reach and the use of the Istanbul travel cards are easy and convenient to use anywhere in the city.not
Breakfast had a lot of choices but quality was just so so, except the eggs.
Staff was great, very friendly, spoke very good English, gave us very good recommendation about places to eat, allowed 1 hour later to stay, heated pool was a decent size, cooked omelet for breakfast. Great location, very close yo all highlights.
Hospitable staff, breakfast, location
Very helpful staff, comfortable room, good breakfast and relaxing pool and sauna.
It's a bit hard to find on that small street, but then again I don't have the best sense of direction.
Very good location close to a lot of attractions, room small but compact and well arranged, very clean, bed very very comfy, great breakfast and staff super nice and welcoming. Airport shuttles satisfactory, both for arrival and for leaving.
The only comment is that tissues could be provided for the guests
We were met at the airport, taken to the hotel, given a drink and lokum on arrival, staff were friendly and great.
Wifi connection can be very slow at peak hours
Friendly staff, cosy room and good location
Good location. Very clean Friendly staff Good breakfast
Staff and location
Breakfast was terrific
Very friendly staff. Free WiFi, Pool, sauna, lovely room. Breakfast selection was great, buffet and chef to cook your omelet or fried eggs, while you wait. The location was great within walking distance of all the main sights.
Wi fi wasn't working too well when in the room
the location was fantastic!
Decor needs updating.
The hotel was close to everything, tourist sites, restaurants and shops and minutes away from the tram station. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend.
I know it's a central location so you can expect city noise, but even with windows closed, the traffic noise was quite noticeable with car horns, trams etc and the 5 am call to prayer was an alarm call I could have done without but I was in Turkey so that's what you should expect. The first room I had, the sink plug wouldn't stay down but in the second room it wouldn't come up ! The curtains were too narrow for the curtain rails and some of the light switches did nothing so the lights were either fully on or off. The hotel appeared clean and tidy but definitely needed much TLC particularly the swimming pool. The changing room was a tiny locker room with no room for seats and only one locker had a key. The swimming pool floor was very slippery and several tiles on the edge of the pool were seriously chipped.
The staff were very friendly as was the case throughout Istanbul. The location was very central and well within easy walking distance of most of the main attractions of the city. Very good restaurants within crawling distance of the Sapphire, The pool is the lower basement was wonderfully warm.
I thought that there would be a restaurant in the hotel for evening meals.
Location perfect for a short stay. Shuttle service between Ataturk airport very convenient. Room very clean. Staff helpful in thinking about where to visit.
Everything, just as good as the first time we were there 7 years ago right down to the fairwell gift, oh and the breakfast was sensational. If you need anything just ask for Vural he was very helpfull
There was nothing I did not like - just be aware that the street is closed to vehicles so you have to walk a ways between the vehicle and hotel when arriving and leaving. And the breakfast room got really busy unless you went early - but once I saw there was another room, I was more comfortable
Prompt check-in; courteous reception staff; really enjoyed the swimming pool in the basement; good area for restaurants and access to tram for travel to other locations.
