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

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.
