I had a constant droning sound in my room. First the personel told me it must be the air conditioning and I should just switch it off (bad joke with temperatures above thirty-five degrees Celsius ) Then they admitted the sound is coming from the neighbour room. So, I should contact the people next to me and ask them to... More

Totally hotel was better than expectation. We used it just to sleep and eat breakfast, so that is better than any other one. Just be informed that for using safe box paying 50$ as deposit is mandatory!!! Rooms are clean, services are ok and breakfast is good. If you want to have tea-maker in your room paying extra money is... More

We booked this hotel through an agency and had no idea what we got ourselves into. The first 7 days, every single day we had to ask for our toilet to be fixed as it didn't flush and everyday they would say they'll send someone and never did, we'd wait 15 min for the elevator to arrive and once we...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
