I will not advice any of my friend for this hotel.
Everything is ok expected the guest's services was unexpected from the hotel as 1) internet was bad not strong. 2) they not supply the supplement everyday free bottle of water , they are asking for a payment. 3) tea & coffee back they refuse to supply every day they want to charge for it !!!! All hotel 3 star in Istanbul they gives free. 4) in breakfast only 1 type of tea no tea back available & if I asked them to have omelets the want to change money extra. 5) the breakfast is very normal as 2 or 3 star hotel's not as 4.8 star . I really was shocked for what i pay.
