the tv is very bad and poor
Breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Room was a little small by U.S. standards, but adequate. General location was not that great.
24hour room service
Great location. Very clean rooms. The concierge person (Lulah?) was very nice, helpful and service with a smile! The rooms very stuffy! I guess the a/c was turned off. Also you could smell smoke coming from the smoking rooms.
The front desk/front door staff need to smile more and be more pleasant.
The only thing I really liked was the location. The room was very small for 2 people.
The room had a nice seaview, TV with a lot of programs.
Hotel staff on reception was rude and impolite.
the room was noisy, no phonic isolation. the room was very small.
Location - main city
i have asked for Sea facing room, though it was available but i couldnt get
all sightseeing activities within walking distance. Be aware, Sultanamet is really touristic!
Pool is very cold, however, I cannot imagine you visit Istanbul for swimming ;-)
Its location being at a walking distance to the historical sites.
The room rates; too high.
- The Staff can speak French. - Free computer access. - The Welcome Free Cocktail ;-) - I had some problems in Istanbul, and the staff were PERFECT (they help me at 200%, give me good advices)... Thank-you SOOOO much !!!!!!!!! I have never seen this in any other hotels i have been !
Nothing.......all was perfect !!!!
