we were only there for one night but what a great hotel. We ended up with a suite and a jacuzzi on the balcony which was over the top. Great service, good food and good location. We enjoyed being able to entertain in our suite.

We stayed here for two nights in September, either end of a cruise. A very friendly, relaxed 5-star hotel. Large clean rooms, wonderful beds, great views, and a superb outdoor swimming pool and lounging area, very good breakfasts. Great restaurant on top of the hotel with fab Turkish food - worth every euro!

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
