I stayed at this hotel for three nights. Honestly I tried to find a positive point about it, but considering the number of stars assigned to this hotel, I could not. The only positive thing is its location. That's it, no more. Staff cannot talk English at all, which I don't find it weird as almost no one in Turkey... More

The hotel is simple. Rooms are so small with bad view. Staff was so friendly with us. Breakfast was good and enough. The location was the best point. Room was clean with an old safety box, small refrigerator, no sleeper, no toothbrush, no tea/coffee maker, old TV. Poor Wi-Fi signal in upper rooms. I think that was so-so(Not good-not bad).... More

However, the hotel location is very good as its walking distance to Taksim square which is the key place for buying souvenirs and other... More

The place of this hotel is good, next to taqsim square and istiqlal street. The staffs are friendly, the rooms are clean, but somehow hot.Though a 4 star hotel, yet can be better.by walking the Istiqlal street is some minutes away, the center of great brands.
