The Elysium, Istanbul
Our overnight stay at The a Elysium was only brief, but good. Staff were friendly. Service was good. The room was over two levels with stairs up to a mezzanine where the bed was.
Floor to ceiling windows (with electric blinds) over two levels provided a panoramic view of this gorgeous, yet troubled city right to the ocean as the hotel is located on quite a high hill.
NOTE: Location is good with Taxim Square being only a short walk away. The city is a long 45-60 minute drive from the airport and about 15 mins away from the port.
