Positive Reviews

Cool spot to kick it

The property is situated in the Besiktas area of Istanbul and manages to combine best of old world charm with new school tastes. The Nisantasi district, known as Istanbul's SoHo, is a 15-minute walk from the hotel while the historic Dolmabahce Palace is five-minutes away on foot. The hotel itself is located in the classicaly-styled Akaretler Row Houses.

Free phone for you

Don't worry about getting lost or needing to make a call thanks to the free smartphone the hotel lets you borrow during your stay. Guests rave about this convenience and say it is thoughtful of the property to have this available for you to use.

Staff takes care of business

The employees are well trained and seem to always be there to assist you should you need advice or help of any kind. In addition to this, visitors note that the staff is very friendly and always seems to be smiling.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast a dud

Several guests say that the breakfast offered at the hotel isn't really worth your time as the options available are limited and the price is too high for what's offered.

Wi-Fi keeps dropping out

Using the internet at the property can be a bit of a downer. Some visitors say that the internet connection isn't all that reliable. It was also noted that in-room Wi-Fi is not free but there is complimentary internet available at the lounge.

Not much on-site

While the property is stylishly decorated, there isn't a whole lot of substance behind the flashy exterior according to a number of travellers who point out that the hotel doesn't offer much in the way of amenities. There is a spa and a fitness centre but no pool or proper restaurant.
