Taksim Square is a convenient base to experience the charms of Istanbul. The hotel is right across the square giving a grandstand view of this famous square, including politics being played out between the government and the protestors. The rooms were slightly small, well appointed, tho it could do with a thorough refurbishment. Breakfast, included in the price, was well... More

Location of the hotel is good, common areas are nicely designed and look quite nice, but when you go on the floors, the corridors and rooms are old and crying for remodeling... So, it was not very pleasant.

I've stayed 3 nights at this hotel and it was disappointing for a 5 star hotel. The rooms are nice and modern, however it was possible to see fluff on the floor corners when we first arrived. The reception staff is nice but not very fluent in English, whereas the restaurant staff, specially the men, are not friendly at all... More
