Stopover before international flight
It was a stop over before our internationak flight and the stay was for few hours considering delayed flights and late completion of tour. Even then the warmth of walking into the hotel was great and welxomed by the friendly staff.

Exceptional Service by staff
We reached quite early than the check in time. But the staff ensured we were given a room as soon as possible when one is vacated. And once they did they upgraded us to a suite. Breakfast spread was really good and tasty. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Overall a very good experience

6/10 Good

Staff were friendly in general. However housekeeping weren’t very attentive when they clean the room. They repacked the coffee and sugar sachet that I already used inside the plastic bag and put it back on the counter. We also ordered an iron machine to the room (that’s supposed to already be available) but it didn’t work and it leaked water everywhere! Breakfast buffet was a bit messy and not very well organized as the staff didn’t seem to be properly trained and aware

Close to where the bus from the airport drops you off. Clean with friendly staff. Very close to Taksim Square and the metro. Noisy at night…but that apples to most of that area. Pool is not kid friendly since is 1.5 meters deep everywhere, there is a small jacuzzi. Buffet breakfast offers a variety of foods. Hotel restaurant was good. Our room with a king bed was nice and updated but room was a bit small for 2 adults and one small child. Overall a good value!
