We enjoyed the location of this hotel (in the Taksim area of Istanbul). There were lots of restaurants and shops and it wasn't too far to walk into the Sultanhamet area. The staff were quite helpful too and the rooms were clean though a bit shabby. However, despite me making the reservation 3 months in advance, the proprietors put us... More

I've been in many countries and have stayed in many different hotels before, but it was the very first time that I realised that a bad hotel can absolutely ruin your trip! I'm not a picky person but this hotel did not even have the basic things that a hotel should have. We were 8 people and stayed at Santa... More

I have been in Santa Hill with my friends for 4 days. I find the place decent, nothing great but neither bad. The rooms were good size and clean. We found our room quite dark though, not much external light coming through and very poor of internal lights. The duvet are quite hard, not sure if that’s normal. We asked... More

We stayed at Hotel Santa Hill from May 24 to June 01. Booked 2 rooms for 7 nights. This hotel is in the perfect location. Its just 3-4 minutes walk straight to Istiklal or 10 minutes walk in the opposite direction for Taksim Square and Metro/Funicular Station. There is a bus stop right next to the hotel. Excellent breakfast. Complimentary... More

I stayed in this amazing hotel for 6 nights with a group of friends and everything was over perfect. To begin with, the location of the hotel is just right because Taksim Square and also Istiklal is literally 5 minutes away. All staff in the hotel are very helpful; kind and have great company. The gent who stayed in the... More

I stayed in Santa Hill for a week with a group of friends, we stayed in the family room I fell in love with the decor of the room. The service is amazing however the location is the best. It is walking distance from Istiklal and Taksim square. Breakfast is good and the staff are extremly helpfull! Must visit!

My parents went to Santa Hill and experienced a great time in Istanbul. Not only was the communication prior to their stay very timely and comprehensive, but also the situation is quite excellent (Only 300m to get to Istiklal Street!). The rooms are charming offering a fancy but classic Istanbul/Osmanian style. For this price I don''t think it can get... More

We stayed at Santa Hill for a week. Location was very important for us and we were happy with the location of this hotel. It is five minute walk to Istiklal yet it is away from the noisy Istiklal clubs which are open till 4 am. Come out of the hotel and walk to you right hand side, pass the... More

This is a really good hotel if you want to live nearby Taksim. Just 5 minutes walking and you are in the middle of Taksim. Rooms are clean and with good AC. All the staff where very helpful. I speacially like to thank Mr. Jehad, Mr Murat and Mrs Zuleyha for 5star service. I definetly recomend this hotel. // Lawin
