It is pretty decent one. Do not expect anything fancy or quaint, or traditional. It is a very modern looking, clean facility. 15 minutes walk to the Taksim square. Lot of cafes, restaurants, and basic grocery shops are around. Seems like in a safe locality. Staffs are pretty friendly and helpful. The breakfast is pretty good given that in some... More

Stayed 9 nights while attending a conference at the nearby Istanbul Congress Center. Perfect location for the ICC with a short, direct walk to the venue. Hotel also proved to be convenient for touring Istanbul with close links to public transport. The hotel does not pretend to be a 5 star anonymous chain hotel but is a perfect home base.... More

Enjoyed our home away from home on our first trip to Turkey - Istanbul. As mentioned, not a luxurious hotel but very clean, modern and centrally located. Staff were attentive and we definitely loved our room on the top floor (6th) with a large balcony and a view of the sprawling city in front of us. A hop, skip and... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. Even though the hotel is not luxurious like many hotels in Istanbul, it was nice. The staff was very friendly. The day we arrived we had a dinner at one of the local restaurant within walking distance. The gentleman at the front desk was kind enough to walk us to the restaurant.... More

Ended up staying 4 nights here because I enjoyed it so much. Close to Taksim (10 min walk). great and helpful staff, great Turkish breakfast. The room was very clean, spacious (I was in a room on level three) and very quiet being located just off the main road. Was a great find and exceptional value!
