We stayed for 2 nights then 4 nights a couple of weeks later. The hotel was used by a tour we were on and we extended for a couple of nights at the end. The second room we had was better than the first room. The location is ok, if you are there as a tourist then I would suggest...

Room stank of smoke, TVs blaring all night the walls are paper thin and very noisy at night with a nightclub close by or underneath the hotel. Asked for another room got it but no different. Oh renovations going on until all...

Just 50 meters away from the Aksaray tram stop, the location is probably the best, since the tram can take you through the historical Istanbul. The quality is average, average size. Cleaning service is done pretty late. Breakfast buffet is ok too. Seems like the hotel is not well know to taxi drivers, so take a card with you or...

Cons : Very small rooms and bathrooms, pool is partially smelly, staff is not helpful at all, unsafe for women to go out late night around the hotel. We saw men flock all over...

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel recently and although the hotel was ok we'd probably not stay there again. This was partly due to our experience on our first night there. Despite booking a room with double bed we were shown to a room with 2 single beds and another option of a smaller room with a 3/4 bed....

Just a walk away from the tram station, it is not a bad choice for your probably the second visit to Istanbul (since I feel the initial stay has to be in Sultanhamet)! After staying touring the other cities of Turkey, we returned to Istanbul for two more nights before heading back home & stayed at Amethyst. It was a...

Beds are great, firm mattress and rooms are very clean :) i had a Turkish Hammam foam massage that i highly recommend! Will do it again.

Everything was very good, hotel staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was very good, the only thing I didn't like is that you have to pay for Turkish coffee, if you want to one for breakfast. The hotel is very very clean, pool and spa are perfect, and location of hotel couldn't be better. You can reach...
