This hotel suits for people whom are intrested to have breakfast in the morning and bed for night sleep. You should not expect a 4 star hotel because it is not really a 4 star hotel. Anyhow location of hotel is so good (near Taksim squire and Estiklal street). Staff are not so friendly but help when you need them.... More

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
