Fortunately and unexpectedly, our room was on the 19th floor offering breathtaking views of Istanbul. The hotel is centrally located (in Taksim). The employees are helpful and friendly and there's an interactive concierge which was really convenient for us. The breakfast was satisfactory. The lobby was nice and spacious. The bathroom was outdated. I honestly think that a renovation to... More

The hotel is conveniently located right opposite the Taksim metro station and is located in the center of the Taksim square. The Havatas buses (transfer from airport to Taksim) stop about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. There are also many cafes and shops around. The rooms are very clean, well looked after and bright. We had a nice view... More

The rooms are clean and acceptable. The beds are relative modern and the furniture is traditional style but new. The restaurant in the ground floor has a good gastronomical offer (please don´t take buffet but order by the menu). The restaurant at the top floor provides good views to the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. Take high rooms with view... More
