My wife and I selected Stories Hotel for a reunion with 20 friends and family in June, and we were thrilled with the quality, comfort and personal attention each of the staff at Stories offered to us and our guests. From the first email through checkout, Stories staff and management worked hard to ensure our comfort with committed personal service.... More

Arrived at Stories Hotel to smiley faces even though it was 8am on a Wednesday morning. I requested a early checkin prior to arriving and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Checked in early and has some sleep before we started our day. Thank you Fatima! Brilliant location for any traveller close to Taksim square and... More

I was looking for a moderately priced hotel in the Galata or Taksim area and chanced upon the Stories Hotels. After reading positive reviews on a couple of websites, I decided that the Kumbaraci hotel was in an ideal location for what I wanted--a clean, comfortable, centrally located perch from which to shop, sight-see and hit a club/bar or two....

Hotel cleanliness and location was good. I had sent Mr Korhan a follow up email about our concerns and have not received a follow up response, yet. Though, when it came to making a booking enquiries via email the responses were at latest within the day. I would like to bring to your attention that we were literally having difficulty... More

The Stories Kumbaraci is a very good hotel in a busy area off of one of the main streets of Istanbul, yet it's amenities are great and there is almost no noise from the busy streets. It's walking distance to most public transport, taksim square and galata tower. Easy access for old town for the sights and lots of restaurants... More

I've stayed here a few times and have really enjoyed. Not for one interested in a sports center. Otherwise the exceptional location, comfortable beds, and elegant rooms provide a nice stay. Rain showers are impressive and HOT ! Bathrooms overall kinda small, but nevertheless the layout and closet space makes up for that. Internet is pretty good, NO NEED to... More

We only stayed one night after a cruise, which was unfortunate since the hotel was wonderful. We were given a large room on the 5th floor with a decent view of the Bosphorus. Clean, spacious and nicely decorated. I would definitely recommend this Hotel to any family or friends. The hotel is just a few steps off of the main... More

Hotel is very conveniently located, more than reasonably priced and modern. There is just one issue and that's that air conditioning does not work or at least not properly. Room was very hot and despite our efforts the airco never really cooled off room. That's a bit inconvenient therefor four out of five.

Lovely hotel - unfortunately, nothing went right. Internet was down the first night upon arrival and the rooms do not have cell service. Floor was dirty(complete with items left over from a prior guest). Air conditioning / fan in room did not work - keeping the room at an intolerable 22 degrees. This room overlooks the restaurant that uses the... More
