I stayed here 12-14 august this year. The hotel is located at Taksim square and is right at the entry to the main shopping area. Public transport is available as much as the abundance of taxis as well. The rooms are currently being renovated so this is a review on the current state of affairs. The rooms are designed in...

Taksim is not a great place for a tourist to stay in Istanbul. That said, this hotel over promises and under delivers. While the lobby is nicely remodeled, the rest of the hotel is slightly crumbling. We were on the 5 th floor and that hallway has been patched up many times with mediocre workmanship if you look closely. The... More

Very nice rooms, on one side of the hotel with views of the square & on the other side, views of the Bosporus. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The buffet breakfast was outstanding. We walked from the old town, across the Galata bridge, past the Galata Tower and eventually to Istiklal Caddesi, the famous pedestrian street which leads... More

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 The bathroom was outdated.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
