Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights for a weekend break. It is very central for Taksim square, the rooms were clean and good for the price we paid with comfortable beds. Their service here however is not very good, we had the bellboy get us a taxi to a restaurant for a planned birthday meal to which he didn't... More

This hotel was very average. On arrival the hotel seemed nice. However our room seemed like it was down in the basement. We had to go down two set of stairs and get in the lift to get to our room. It was quite far away from the main reception. However based on this the rooms were very good, they... More

I had spent 7 nights in this hotel, like the location near to TAKSIM, the staff very nice, but i am strongly believe there are better hotels around , the most bothering thing there was the non isolated voice between rooms, you might listen to what is happening in the next neighbors room, but for me, it was my BEST...

Recently renovated rooms but weirdly arranged in the back of its most expensive sister hotel. Many stairs if you have a problem. Just 1 minute from Taksim square. The most remarkable thing in the room was the very bad mattress. They could also do something about the stains on the carpet and the pillows.

Stayed for a week with family, it is a good location hotel but facilities are not as mentioned on Web, Swimming pool was not operational , internet quality very bad and TV with no English channels. Few staffs are good but others are not serious about the customer complaints and customer focused.. Not live again in this Hotel.

Upgraded to grand star with great room view of Bosphorous and an amazing shower. Pool out if action for whole stay. Located very close to Taskim Square so for 2 days we saw riot police which was quite daunting with children. On last day whilst waiting for taxi children were not allowed to play and they couldn't call a mobile... More
