Disappointed
Very Very disappointing stay. I did a reservation for the big room-48 sqm Facing to a garden view, and when arrived at the hotel received a room facing to a forest and to a main road and it was very noisy- couldn’t sleep all night because of the noise.

Love the hotel and their nice helpful stuff, but they refuse to upgrade my stay though they had availability, also house keeper takes too long responding to any request and needs many requesting call. Other than that a decent lovely stay … recommended

Amazing Stay!
Amazing service and quality far exceeded expectations. Surprise cake and wine was waiting in our room after they somehow found out it was our anniversary. We had the half board option and the breakfast and dinner (buffet) was just spectacular with a wide range of options, all delicious.

Exceptional hotel in 65 acres of parkland
A superb hotel in 65 acres of parkland minutes from the Bosphorus. Amazing attention to detail - staff über helpful and friendly. Delicious food and the view from the rooftop bar and restaurant is incredible. We had so much fun and when sightseeing got a bit too much we headed to the pool (large) and spa - fitness centre which is enormous and beautifully run. We honestly couldn’t have had it better. The breakfast buffet satisfied our very hungry young adult children and the beds and sheets were so comfortable. Only downside is the lack of taxis. Istanbul is a nightmare on the traffic side. You can Uber it but be prepared to be scammed - even by the taxis
