    I reserved room on May.1, May.2 with different reservation number. But Hotel says only one day reservation is available. I complain my reservation is omitted. but hotel says there is no alternative. Of course there is no cancellation fee. Inevitable I move to another hotel. but a few days after I received cancellation fee 114 euro. I was very embarrased on this situation.

    The staff were so nice and very helpful. The tour that they recommended was well worth the money. The front desk people were very helpful and addressed all my concerns.

    Very good

    The view from the building top terrace is amazing. You have Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque right front of you, and the sea in the background. The breakfast is good, not great. A nice touch is the the two massage armchairs in the lobby, which we appreciated at the end of the day.

    I booked and paid for two double rooms (20sqm) and we got two single rooms (15sqm), and that with the bath included. This is not cool. The rooms were clean but the view was in the back, and so to speak no view. At the end, the price we paid (110 Euro/night) is two high for what you get.

    Great location in Sultanahmet, between Blue Mosque down the hill and Grand Bazaar a short walk in the other direction. Easy access to transport and restaurants. Breakfasts are good served on a rooftop terrace with stunning views of the Bosphorous.

    Good

    I like this hotel , it is clean, comfortable, near to the tram and all locations that traveler want to visit. The location is excellent. The breakfast is reach, tasty some times and colorful. The view on the roof (breakfast dinner) is wow.

    First of all the staff are angry sometimes, they get upset of answering questions and don't tell u the truth about how to get to some places without their help. They don't serve u if you don't give them tips all the time especially on breakfast time. Although two bottles of water are for you daily, I received zero. The rooms are very small and no space to walk, there are no suits for big families. The prices are too extra much for such rooms.i stayed in the first floor which is noisy sometimes.

    The 6th floor terrace is the best in the City providing spectacular views of the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus, and Istanbul. Breakfast up on the 6th was a great way to start the day!

    The location was amazing. Views from the breakfast terrace were awesome. The staff was so nice- especially the gentleman who worked the day shift (wish I remembered his name).

    The rooms were a bit warm, but the issue was fixed after the fist day.

    Friendly staff

    Hotel was over-sold in promotional material. Room very small, breakfast very average and cold, bed very hard, sound-proofing between floors very poor, time-keeping for airport pickups etc very poor and receipts for payment not readily available. Very expensive for what it is.

    Restraunt crow provides excellent services and breackfast is good.

    Dinner is not that good and one of the labby manager is kind of pushing to sell tour package to you.

    Exceptional

    The hotel staff was very helpfull and not at all pushing to buy things such as guided tours, taxi service etc. Further on the hotel facilities were of outstanding quality. A very big plus for this hotel was the breakfast: very big variety and real fresh ingredients.

    As most hotels in Istanbul, the walls were rather thin.

    nice helpfull, friendly staff(reception and terasse), best location you can find, clean, quite.

    I would recommend more fruits for breakfast in a country where the fruits are excellent and available and different kind of olives.

    Surely the location, that allow us to reach the most important turistic site by walk. Moreover the breakfast room located on the roof allow us to begin the day very well

    I would recommend Rast to anyone visiting Istanbul. The location was ideal. The complimentary breakfast for superb. I really enjoyed my stay here & would most likely book here again.

    Fabulous

    The breakfast was very good with a large variety of foods. Furthermore the location of the hotel is ideal near to the main monuments.

    The place that is used by the hotel for parking is not very large and is most possible to be full.
