Your favourite bank! (Istanbul)

Hey all, seeing as i'll be losing power tomorrow I thought its time to go out and open a Turkish Lira bank account.

So I thought I would ask all of the expats here which bank they use and why? Is it because your bank had special rates? Maybe the internet banking is super easy? Or maybe your bank has a lot of branches dedicated to expat customer service?

Let me know, and im sure other expats looking in the future will be glad to see your replies as well.

*As a note from me, my wife uses ING and I really hate their online banking system. I also don't like how they MAKE me use the SMS pin-code security (I know this if for the better, but I still want the option to turn it off)
