It offers sumptuous rooms with Bosphorus views and many include Turkish-style marbled bathrooms. The hotel also offers meeting facilities overlooking the Bosphorus where you can organize business events and meetings.

The furnishings are contemporary, while original elements such as wood beamed ceilings or fireplaces are retained. Bathing in plenty of daylight, all units feature satellite flat-screen TVs, DVD players and free wired internet.

Waterfront Restaurant is a casual-chic bistro/café that starts the day with a rich open breakfast buffet and followed by Turkish and International cuisine à la carte menu all-day-long. The waterfront terrace is a perfect place for winding down with an afternoon tea, sunset drinks or celebrating a special event.
