Very hard to raise any complaint! Highly friendly and caring staff at all levels, clean room, rich breakfast buffet, laundry returned back clean and ironed the same day, impressive landscape over the Bosphorous! Fully compliant to the most demanding guests expectations. One single guest related complaint: from time to time smelling cigaret smoke getting into the room from a nearby...

Had a short business trip here, and the hotel was very well located, near Taksim Square. Good facilities, nice rooftop bar, overall a good location. Rooms are a bit dated, but well maintained. Service was good, staff are attentive and most speak sufficiently good English.

Always stay here when visiting Istanbul and the main reason is not just the lovely five star hotel which is always perfect for a weekend stay but the view from the hotel restaurant with evening entertainment - it's perfect :)

Overall, it was a very plesent stay. Helpful and cheerful staff... Great location.. Reasonably priced... If anything, I would like to see a better TV station variety since most of the stations were Turkish.

Bangkok, Thailand
Reviewed 23 January 2017

It's a hotel not suited for business and not for tourists as it is way off the historic center. While it offers a magnificant view on the Bosphorus strait, the rooms clearly need modernization and renovation. The service and breakfast are ok, but not special. At the moment, this house is more 4-star and not 5-star. However, prices are 5-star.

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
