The room was fine, bed really comfortable and air conditionair available! WIFI also pretty good! Shower stands under water after taking a quick one! Sauna was out of order! We wanted to use the Turkish bath, but did not even get an explanation how to use it! There is definetely a need of English, but the Crew barely speaks English.... More

The location is excellent, but otherwise, this is a very poor quality hotel. The rooms are very small (the ones they display on their website as "standard" are not the ones you get for the basic price, for which you get the "economic" rooms), ours had a very bad cigarette smell and had the lights in the entrance not working....

A new hotel so everything is still new, very clean. Workers are helpful and nice. Breakfast with a good view. Oh and note that the double room with one bed is very very veryyy small. So you should take no more than two (not so big) luggages. Location is really good and so close to Taksim square.

My girlfriend made the reservations as she loved the location. I was skeptical - When travelling I like comfort. The rooms are so small - I had to make a choice between me in or luggage. Elevator is like a doll house elevator. I think it should be noted that the rooms are small. We checked out and went to... More

Second time visiting Istanbul in the last couple of months and Taksim life hotel has a perfect location with almost directly facing the square and the metro station a 2 minute walk away. The hotel is reasonably modern but the double rooms are quite small with a small bathroom but definitely worth the money. The hotel has wifi but this... More

We have stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. It was very confortable stay however the rooms were pretty tiny. It is absolutely worth the money. The location of the hotel cannot be any better than that. Hotel crew is pretty professional.

I went there last July. It was nice hotel and perfect location of taksim square. However the stuff don't speak English and hardly understand me. Also there was no Omlet Eggs on the breakfast. Which is something I used to. Also I tried to late my checkout but they refused however the hotel was not that crowd. Thanks
