Beautiful location
Right by the Bosphorus Bridge yet in a secluded location. Lovely garden setting. One side of the hotel restaurant has a view of the Bosphorus and both sides of Istanbul.

Very pretty hotel with beautiful view
Only stayed one night but room was charming and immaculate (always appreciate a room with tea making facilities too as I was up too early for breakfast). Staff were very attentive in ordering me taxis for my business appointments. The resident car showed me to my room!
