The hotel is much better than what I expected. It was very clean. The location has a lovely view across the Bosphorous. It was very close to the conference center and just down the hill, it had a beautiful views. Their staffs were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean also and spacious. I generally felt safe also, which is a big thing for a backpacker. There was an awful smell because of the sewerage problem they had. The other guests faced had the same complain. There is a need of improvement of quality of their services.
