I must have stayed in Stories over 5 times since 2012. Used to love it, not so much anymore. The positives: Location (side street off Istiklal). Nice coffee shops nearby, staff friendly, late check out for free, TV channels in English, comfy beds. Negatives: cleaning not upto standard (the cleaners do a quick job of changing towels and that's about... More

The hotel is located very near to Taksim, one of the most important points of İstanbul. My partner was in a business trip so, I join him to transform it also in a romantic trip ;) The hotel is very chic, very sweet with wonderful decoration, very nice design of the room, quality cosmetics in the bathroom. Bed is very... More

This is a nice boutique hotel in Taksim, Istanbul. It is clean and the rooms are nice, with a big comfortable bed and a nice big shower as well. It is non-smoking throughout. The staff were a bit non-responsive, but ok in the end - I had an issue with the cable tv not working and it took them 20... More

This hotel is located in a side street of the main shopping street to Taksim square, the location is therefore very central. We got an upgraded room, probably because the hotel wasn't fully booked. The disadvantage of the room however was that it was located on the street side with night clubs in front of it. Although the rooms are... More

It's nice hotel with respectful size rooms. We had two beds connected together, which looked like one giant bed, and it was very comfortable. Shower is so big that you can literally walk inside. We loved it. Wifi was not very fast, but as we discovered later, it was the fastest comparing to other hotels we've been in Turkey. Still... More

Spent 3 nights in this lovely hotel. The hotel ia very close to Taksim square (around 600 meters). The cleanliness of the hotel, the management and its hospitality makes it one of the best hotels. On the day of our arrival, we've been upgraded to a superior room (free of charge). The room was perfect and got cleaned every day.... More

Stayed in the hotel for holidays with my husband, and found it to be a great experience. Starting from the location, it is just few minutes from Istiklal Street. The staff was awesome, our special thanks to Ömer Kaan Aydın, and also there was a girl at the reception, very friendly and nice person. These guys without any obtrusiveness somehow... More

With only 17 rooms spread over 6 floors, this hotel is intimate & a stones throw to Istiklal St. & a short but amazing walk up to Taksim Square. We experienced two different rooms. Firstly, a room at the back with a huge bed that took up most of the room. Then we had a double bed in a room... More
