    Good hotel with excellent locationRooms are small but well equipped. Staff can be a bit indifferent but helpful. Best aspect is location - tram, funicular and ferry are minutes away, Galata tower is a short walk and if you get a sea view room you get a nice view too. The view from the terrace on the top floor should be great, but the bar was unfortunately closed during my stay.

    Reviewed December 15, 2018

    Dear Mr Abdullah, thank you for taking your time to share your feedback. We are very sad to say that most of them -except elevator broke down - is exaggerated. First of all we have a open buffet plus plate service for breakfast which therefore consist many items to guests preferences. The photos of breakfast can be seen at Trip advisor and web site as well, it is eactly same every day. The entrance of hotel is right at the main street so that you did not have to take stairs. Entrance is on the road where there is not even one stair- so this is confusing for us. You may see the other entrance at other side of the building. We apologise for the elevator, it was broken for a few days that we had to wait for the special imported technical piece to arrive and when it arrived it was fixed with a huge investment. However we do not have only one elevator we have two and one of them was broken but second one was working properly. Thank you again, Kİnd Regards

    There is a night club at the last floor of the hotel so that the last two floors are so noisy it is impossible to sleep. Staff is extremely polite and nice but that doesn't save the day.

    location, nice room, great bkfst included/price

    I would highly recommend this hotel. . My room was fabulous after I changed to a room with lots of windows, as the first one had one tiny one and it was a bit dark. The staff was exremely accomodating. The rooms are contemporary and effiecient. I loved watching the hussle and bussle of the city whilee having a delicious, included breakfast. The price is right, the staff is great, the location is amazin, rooms are perfect, free wifi... You can walk anywhere from this hotel. Roofdeck amazing views- just ask to see the drinks menu for the prices before ordering.

    Stylish New Hotel, excellent staff, good breakfast lounge, top location

    the new modern hotel at the foot of beyoglu, 5min walk to galata tower. karakoy tramvay 2min walk. excellent hotel staff ( very helpful on our new years evening planing and other dinner tips, just perfect), rooms are relatively small but stylish new and very clean. the breakfast lounge is very nice with perfect service and great food. even there is a club ontop and in the cellar for hotel, it wasn't noisy at all ( we stayed in 7th floor). i defenitely will book this hotel again as i travel often to istanbul and this hotel was by far best value for money, location & service in this price range. (tried several others before and wasn't impressed as with gradiva)

    Modern rooms, good room services, near tram station

    It was very convienent to transportation , near the karakoy station and very near bosphrous river and I love the sea view from my widow. Though there isn't any electrical hot kettle for my usual morning tea, it's still doable with good breakfast from the cafe below ( breakfast included) Love the staff's kind greetings and help for everything we asked for. They were so sweet to include a wine for my honey mooning trip. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

    Perfekte-Lage ”

    Wir haben dieses Hotel wegen der Optimalen lage ausgesucht, auf der einen seite ist die Altstadt auf der anderen die Shoppingmeile Istiklal-Strasse. Das Hotel ist neu Renoviert worden das sieht man sofort. Die Zimmer waren recht klein (10qm) wir als Paar haben uns schon schwer getan da wir eine Große Wohnung haben. Die Zimmer wurden nie richtig Sauber gemacht das war echt Schade.. Was uns auch entäuscht hat das, dass Panorama Resteraunt oben drüber Nicht geöffnet hat, deshalb ein punkt abzug. In der Bar unter konnte man jeden Frühstücken. Viel auswahl gab es nicht aber war vollkommen ausreichend. Im grossem und ganzen Punktet dieses Hotel zum grösstenteil wegen der Perfekten Lage und wegen dem Preis natürlich.

    Lage, Lage, Lage, Frühstück

    Total netter Empfang. Die Zentrale Lage zum Galata Turm (2 Min zu Fuß) ist das beste am Hotel. Man nimmt daher die doch sehr kleinen Zimmer mit den sehr kleinen Betten in Kauf. Das Frühstück wurde serviert und war nicht nur gut, sondern auch liebevoll zubereitet. Beim Empfang gleich fragen ob man ein Zimmer mit Blick auf den Bosporus haben kann. Unbedingt in das Restaurant 360 (15 Minuten) und das Nuteras (15 Minuten) gehen, Vorreservierung ist zu empfehlen.

    立地が良い、朝食が美味しい

    良い点:トラム カラキョイ駅から徒歩2分ほどで便利。近くには新市街の繁華街も近く、飲食店も多くて食事にも困らない。ホテルは比較的新しく、スタッフも親切。朝食はできたてが食べられ、トルコの伝統的な朝食も提供してくれる。上層階のリバービューの部屋からの眺望は素晴らしい。幹線道路に面しているが、騒音はさほど感じない。 悪い点:部屋がとても狭く、スーツケースを広げることも難しい。ダブルベッドで2名の宿泊も可能なようだが、2名分のスーツケースを置くスペースはなし。真冬の旅行であったが、暖房設備が効かず部屋がなかなか暖まらない。

    地理位置非常優越, 面海,步行3分鐘到地鐵, 海邊魚市....

    我們在這入住有7晚, 飯店人員服務親切, 配有最精緻的早餐,新鮮果汁. 只可惜客房實在太小, 小得連2個大行李箱都放不下. 但因為地理位置實在太好, 前面海, 後有galata tower, 都只需步行3~5分鐘. 所以我們又續住. 如果你是喜歡夜晚安靜或帶小孩的旅客建議你選擇其他飯店, 因為頂樓及地下室皆為知名酒吧, 夜晚過了10點便吵雜不停直到3,4am. 我們有幾晚都根本無法入睡. 但如果你是年輕人. 這會是很好的選擇.
