"Comfortable hotel, very kind staff"Rate:  5 Stars
The hotel room was comfortable and clean. Beside the room and the separate bathroom there are a mini kitchen(with basic equipment) and a resting room with a big TV. There is another TV in the sleeping room.
If you have children, they have options with 2 sleeping rooms.
The hotel is few minutes away from the metro station in Cevahir Mall and a taxi costs only $ 3-4 to reach centers as Besiktas or Taksim.
The staff were really helpful and kind, they were smiling all the time, we really felt comfortable.
If you are using the Sabiha Gokcen airport, take the Havatas transfer bus and hop off at Zincirlikuyu stop. And take a taxi to the hotel for $3.
Room tip: If you have

"Really comfortable 6 nights at Istanbul"Rate:  4 Stars
Me and my wife spent 6 nights at this lovely hotel, it really has many benefits that makes its value more than great for what we took back,
The location of this hotel is 3 min walking to Sisli metro station(underground), once u reach this station u r connected to Istanbul`s public transportation network, buy ISTANBULKART if u r staying long, where u can use it in all public transportation. Minimal need for taxi`s if u study the public network well.
So this was a great location after a long day of shopping or site seeing, walking long distance wasn`t much desirable. And after each long hot day when we reached the hotel in that short time, i was assured we made the right choice.
Also at the same walking distance lies Cevahir mall, huge modern mall having all known and unknown brands, two level food court and Atlantis (Games and small rides) Fun :)
The staff at the hotel is really helpful and smiling, they do their best to help. Rooms are very clean always and have neat furniture, all rooms are suites that consist of a small kitchenette at the entrance having all basic utilities, refrigerator, microwave, heater and cattle as well as plates, forks...Etc. So if u wana check out a supermarket for grocery, u have a backup.
Also we had a reception, couch and cable satellite LCD. We were always listening to Turkish pop music channels, real good :)
And the rest of the suite has the bedroom (small) and the bathroom.
We had breakfast morning at the buffet, it is really good, not huge but i didn`t get bored having all basic stuff like eggs, jam, cheese, sausage, serial, honey, salad, fruits, bread, bakery and juice. And even at the last day we informed them that we will check out at 3 am so they prepared a breakfast box for us.
The hotel location is although in a great location in respect to transportation, it overlooks a quiet narrow streets so u don`t hear car horns and motors if u close windows and in a high level.
It was quiet for us.
Tips and dislikes:
1. The house keeping who cleaned the room every day used to always leave the windows opened. so when i come back i find both mosquitos and flies waiting for me accompanied by noisy street symphony, this bothered me, but i stated this comment at the reception and disappeared stating the day after.
2. There is one elevator in the hotel which is very slow responding and needs a hell of maintenance or replacement. Even one day it was out of order so we had to climb 5 floor to our room with our shopping:(
3. There is a grave yard near the hotel and as i read in some comments that it was annoying to some, well itâ€™s not, simply because window having its view is a secondary side window that is at your back when sitting on the reception couch. And u can close blackouts the moment u enter the room.
4. Hotel provides tours to different places like historic and bursa, if u dig a bite in the internet u can go by your on much more cheaper.
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and if we visit Istanbul we will strongly want to staying there again
Room tip: Choose high floor to avoid street noise, but not a big deal. Make sure elevator good is woking or a...

Breakfast was average for Istanbul and very good. There are washing machines available to guests. Would recommend

"Great spot in Sisli, handy serviced apartment"Rate:  4 Stars
We had a nice stay for 2 nights, choosing this location as it was close to a concert we came for. Location-wise, sisli is not special in itself compared to say Sultan Ahmet in the old town, but its close to the train and lots of shops if that`s what you want. The staff were nice, even showing our kids the new puppies they had in the basement, and organising babysitting (at a high cost). The rooms are neat and clean - no criticism. The website and branding suggest its more glamorous and new than the reality, aesthetically, but there is nothing wrong with Belle Maison. The breakfast was nice, the porter kind, and everyone was helpful- even getting us takeaway food when we arrived late on the first night. If you get a good price and you need a serviced apartment in this area, I would recommend it.

"Really good"Rate:  5 Stars
We went to Istanbul for a family reunion and had 17 people staying in the hotel. Rooms/suites are really spacious, spotless and meticulously cleaned every day. Hotel staff are very honorable, helpful friendly people. Owner lives in a penthouse unit and that makes a difference. It`s located walking distance to one of Europe`s largest shopping malls which offers all kind of local, regional and international goods.
Walking distance to all kinds of restaurants. We all loved it.
Room tip: I think the two bedroom suites are the best value for families. It`s just like a 2 bedroom apart...
