We stayed in a very nice, spacious, clean room on the 17th floor with stunning views. The beds were very comfortable.I used the spa - great service. The food was excellent- typical Turkish delicacies. I would recommend this hotel for business or a short stay.

The hotel has a horrible service. They made me and my family wait 5 hours before check-in and 4 hours after check-out. The staff at the front desk are rude and somewhat mannerless. The rooms are dusty and dirty as well. We had payed for a car to pick us up from the airport yet no one showed up and... More

Excellent hotel, great location, nice rooms. Only thing u need to specify with them is the size of the room you want. For example, we booked the Bosporus facing deluxe room, and were given a room the size of those really tiny matchboxes(not the regular size but the miniature ones). On speaking to reception about it they very willingly changed... More

First, it is not clear why any tourist would want to stay in this area of Istanbul where the main sight is Istiklal Street, basically an outdoor shopping mall with international chain stores. Taksim Square itself isn't very interesting, primarily a large cemented area full of people transiting the area and the site for large gatherings (none while we were... More

A highly recommended hotel, the place is in the heart of Istanbul, in the middle of Taksim square and on the head of Istiklal street, the most famous place for shopping as all brands are there. moreover,food& shisha lovers will find it so close to there needs in addition to night life from bars and pubs

We stayed on a superior suite for 5 days. The hotel is a bit old but located in a perfect spot. The personnel was exquisite, always polite and helpful. The breakfast very good and the lobby most comfortable. The price was average if you consider the whole package. I would recommend it for a few days business trip.

I spent two nights here, the hotel is right in the city centre. Stayed in room 1708 had a fantastic view of Taksim Square, breakfast buffet was very good with an assortment of fruits which was quite impressive. The hotel checkin, luggage and concierge services were very polite and efficient. I was allowed to checkin early without and hassle.

Very slow staff at the reception desk. Our room was so tiny we could barely move. Mini bar offers everything you may need, that a plus. Nothing special really except for location- close to everything.
