If you want a good hotel in the city center of Istanbul, with a pool: this is the hotel to visit! I would gladly go back. The service was good, the food delicious and the location perfect. Having a pool was very refreshing. Only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was the (rather expensive) transfer service offered by the hotel. That did not live up to our expectations when being picked up from the airport. However, the drop off at the airport was excellent - so rather a matter of luck.
