Our last days of the tour, I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Its located in the modern part of Istanbul, Taksim. A couple blocks away you can walk and there's a huge photo op in Taksim square. The Independence momument is in Taksim square and pays homage to Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish republic. Unfortunately we were pressed for time so I didn't get to take pictures here. Around the vicinity of the hotel there are a lot of little shops where you can go shopping. Be careful as you can get lost if you don't pay attention to where you go. Of course, since I didn't drive it was confusing. Once you enter the lobby, you encounter these massive marble floors. The lobby area has little shops around and even a cafe. Again, you can take either the stairs and elevator. The elevator is again very tiny. Again, I fell in love with my room. Dark wood was a theme amongst the 4 star hotels in Turkey. Amenities include the flat screen TV with cable, free wireless, sauna, turkish bath, and gym. Decor was up to date. Not to mention the bathroom. If ever you watched Home & Garden TV, the shower apparatus was an overhead rain showering panel. This bathroom had that. Yeah, taking a shower was an experience. It also had a feature where you can play the radio or attach your mp3 player to. It was awesome. When you book you can try and get a room with a view of the Bosphorus. I would recommend staying here. I was blown away with the cleanliness and modern gizmos they had in the rooms.
I slept like a baby.
