Bosporous Sea View Warning
If requesting a Bosporous View room at a premium please request a room floor above 9. `my room on floor 10 was obscured by trees. The outside pool may not have been in use but on my January stay the pool was being used by a flock of seagulls.At one point due to the number of seagulls residents were taking photos of the pool basking seagulls. Some of the light fittings were tired and worn.

Love the hotel and their nice helpful stuff, but they refuse to upgrade my stay though they had availability, also house keeper takes too long responding to any request and needs many requesting call. Other than that a decent lovely stay … recommended

Amazing Stay!
Amazing service and quality far exceeded expectations. Surprise cake and wine was waiting in our room after they somehow found out it was our anniversary. We had the half board option and the breakfast and dinner (buffet) was just spectacular with a wide range of options, all delicious.
