Very Luxurious Look but the rooms are not comfortable and poorly equipped. Staff not very sympathetic. You get the feeling that you have to xtra pay for everything, there's not even a glass in the room in case you are thirsty. The wifi connection is almost not existant.
wonderfull location of hotel does'nt compensate the poor service and very old rooms.
staff limit polite and very old hotel which needs urgent renovation !!
Location friendly and warm staff more and more
The View is amazing
The Hotel needs refurbishment. Should you need design and built just send me an email . I worked in Istanbul and did an execptional hotel in Istanbul.
Im staying in Sözbir hotel for 10 days and i really got sick of the same breakfast everyday.. so, it would be better if made for example three kinds of breakfast every day will be different from the previous. . Just a suggestion. .
The place itself is incredible .. near from everything.. and the view from the suites is breath-taking
The new reception staff arent that good.. the ones before were much much better.. the luggage guys are inappropriate at all..
The location is perfect, the food was good, the staff was wonderful.
Since it is an older building, it is in need of some drastic repairs. While dinning it seemed the sewer system backed up, not pleasant. Also, unfortunately, our last night there, someone was partying, loud music, singing, strobe lights at 3:00AM. I would like to give it another chance but I am a little unsure. Would love to see it succeed.
Dinner foods are no good. Chefs are maybe changed.
Only the view
The entrance of hotel is situated in the corner of petrol station with stairs to get to the main reception.tea and coffee is not included. Television is set to few turkish channels only the their are out of order the most of the time they call it a general problems. This place is excellent for weddings and therefore every evening there is wedding in there till midnight and noway you can get rest. all together I won't recommend this hotel to anyone.
hotel view - service - breakfast receptionist -cleaning
We suggest that the hotel should provide touring trips around the city for the clients. It will be very helpful for the clients
The hotel located in a wonderful location and the view is wonderful. The staff were extremely sweet and helpful. The breakfast turkish style and was really good. The hotel is clean. Mr Jumhour was extremely helpful. Me and my family had wonderful time at the hotel. I liked it more than 5 stars hotels
The view was the Only positive thing. Not far from the port uskudar
Dirty room. Unfriendly staff Every night (5 nights 19/08 to 24/08) a weeding ==> no swiming pool, loud music and weired staff Breakfast was very limited and not fresh. Only tea and Nescafé as drinks thé rest is extra. I regret thé booking proposal total cost 670€ for ...
Brekfast was good. Location is nice overlooking the Bosphorus. Even though you are on the Asian side, it's surprisingly convenient: you can take the very convenient boat to go anywhere you want. You cant beat the view from the hotel and the pool is nice.
The hotel needs SERIOUS renovations. Do not even think of getting the cheap room as these are not only old, but also very dirty (extremely dusty), smells cigarette. A couple of friends had that room and they would not let them change rooms until the last night. Our room was the one overlooking the Bosphorus. It needs complete renovation as everything is old in it. We had a room that smelled cigarette really strong and they would not change our room either. After leaving windows open for the whole day, the smell was bearable (my friends from the horrible room above got the same room as ours on their last night, and that one did not smell cigarette). All in all, you can find better deals in Istanbul for that price.
very comfortable rooms, loving staff. Very cooperative, I would recommend to others to stay.
housekeeping should work and ensure rooms /toilet are fully equipped with housekeeping items including adequate shampoo ,towels..etc.
- The location is in a quiet area. -The view from the hotel is beautiful. - The hotel rooms are big. - the swimming pool is very nice
It is far from the center by car,but can be reached by boat in 10 minutes
Location is excellent as close to Üsküdar ferry boat station and Marmary metro line. Superb view on Bosphorus. Friendly service, good food.
The wifi is unreliable and not very fast. Staff's english not sufficient. no support for travel planning, and no documents available as city map, tube plan or other information.
Internet accessibility, very slow.
Location Location Location. It has to be one of the best views in Istanbul, ranging from the Blue Mosque on one side all the way down to the 2nd bridge. And looking over to the European side with fabulous sunsets. Expect to pay 3 or 4 times as much for anything from one of the big hotel names, and yet the view would still not be comparable. And it is so simple to hop onto a ferry from right in front of the hotel to miss the horrible traffic jams. And the staff are all very friendly and willing.
aircon was a bit dubious, the wi-fi signal weak, especially in the top-of-the range rooms at the top of the hotel. Some minor cosmetic things regarding furnishings/decor.
location location location
Location, directly on the sea, near the Marmary train station and Uskudar bus and sea bus stations
The hotel needs a lift up, it is a little bit old
I have received very good service from the hotel staff, specially reception; very good altitude to the guest requirements
Amazingly beautiful view. Close to Taksim area (5 min by boat to the other side of Bosphorous and then another 5 min by funicular to Taksim). Recommendeable
The breakfast was poor!
Location - Hard to beat, views over Bosphorus stunning. Only 5 min walk to ferries/trips on Bosphorus. Helpful staff.
Not within walking distance (evening/night) of main restaurants - taxi required but close to a local taverna 'ANILAR'. Go there just for the 'experience' owner puts on cabaret fro 10pm!
A bit difficult to get to the upper rooms, you need to take to elevators and then stairs. Internet a bit weak in the upper rooms.
It was fair and comfortable. Good value for money. I would stay again.
