The hotel's exterior isn't exactly top notch, but the place is a very short walk to Taksim square, which to me is essential. As for the room, yes it's small, but it's very nicely designed in that you don't feel it as cramped. Bright, clean, and neat, what more could you ask? Breakfast was good, and more important, there are... More

Stayed here for 1 night during last visit to Turkey. Hotel is 7-8 minutes walk from Taksim square. Room: Was neat and clean but too small. No locks for bathroom. Hardly any place to move, too small table to work. Breakfast was just basic. Very few options. Plus hardly anything for vegetarians. Staff was helpful. Will stay here again if... More

At first, I wasn't impressed with the outside look of the building and the room size since online pictures were different but the kindness and politeness of the hotel staff made it worth it. They did their best to make our stay pleasant. Thanks to Murat, Halil, Ridvan, Hussein and Zahir.

This is a clean hotel near to Taksim Square. It is not fancy. The rooms are smaller than they seem online. The staff was friendly and helpful with all our travel needs. Breakfast is okay - again, nothing fancy. I would stay there again but not the wife. I give it 3 dots as it is okay/average.

Hotel is quirky and different.. Open plan downstairs.. Small reception inside the door, leading to few comfy chairs, then to bar where breakfast is served.. Narrow hallways but fairly spacious and very clean rooms . The wardrobe , fridge, toilet and shower areas behind a partial wall. Shower and wc in seperate cubicles, these have opaque glass swing doors which... More
