This hotel is all about being average, there are only 2 positive points about it: first the location and second the helpful staff. If you would like to stay in a quite hotel with a delicious breakfast, I don't recommend it.

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
