This property was on front of GalataPort which is one of the highlights of Istanbul. Close to everything. Tram, Ferry, pretty much all transportation. A few mins away from amazing restaurants,bars, etc.. The staff in the hotel was amazing. Especially our room cleaning service "Nebahat" as well as "Mehmet" from the restaurant for the breakfast. 5 out of 5 stars to both of them for sure. Great place to stay, I wish i was on 5th floor instead of 4th since i was there for 5 nights on an executive room. Next time...

The area is so beautiful. We had a great view facing the Bosphorus and the old city. The restaurant is on the top roof. Even better view.

The location is perfect! 2 minute walking distance to Galata Port best restaurants, 5 minute walking to distance to port where you can hop on to a water taxi and have access to the asian side and the islands. I love the modern ambiance of the hotel. The pool and spa was an oasis in itself!
