Staff (Very Poor English, Disrespectful, and Careless, they even talk in your back in Turkish - I had a friend who speaks Turkish with me – a very bad incident happened with me there, contact me if you want to know about it).

Great location, 5 mins walk to Taksim square and Istiklal street. Nice rooms with comfy beds and modern (small) bathrooms. A bit noisy (the isolation could be improved) so ask for a room on a high floor and not facing the street. Wifi worked perfectly. I had great prices. I already stayed there twice and will come back.

Just next to Taksim Square, close to the metro and tram stations. Very reasonable price. Perfectly clean rooms, although a very tiny bathroom. Decent breakfast. A bit noisy during the whole night, but the area suggests plenty of ways to entertain yourself 24/7! Very kind and helpful staff! Will go there again!

Hotel Residence has a great location if you want to eat, drink and shop on Istiklal, Taksim, and nearby neighborhoods. It's fairly noisy, being so close to the main drag, and the festivities last all night. The wi-fi is weak and didn't reach our room, so expect to sit in the hall if you're a smartphone addict. And the free... More

There were four of us travelling together, so we rented a "suite", which was two rooms. The price was very reasonable. The biggest downside was that the bathroom, including the shower, was tiny, and hard to maneuver in. Other than that the rooms were clean and the breakfast was fresh and filling. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The... More

I was very impressed with how clean the rooms were and how friendly the staff was for the price they charged. The location is fantastic, one block from the main street. The local transportation was very close also, just a little hard to find at first. The hotel is well within walking distance of the waterfront and a lot of... More

This hotel is well located in the heart of Istanbul just off the Isticlal promenade. The staff are friendly and helpful and the included breakfast is OK, but my room was small and a bit cramped. The available TV channels are quite limited.

Our group of 20 (family & friends travelling together) stayed for 3 nights. The location is excellent, very close to wonderful authentic restaurants. Hotel staff were excellent, helpful & ready with smiles. Breakfast was good. The rooms were the smallest of our whole trip & very basic. Good value for money though.
