this is not a 4 star hotel. There was no hot water !!! The bed was stiff, there was a lot of noise from outside, no wifi in the room and the breakfast was very poor. The only thing that's good in this hotel is the location .

we have been in this hotel for a week, our first room had a view to the next door building which inhibited natural light entrance (which means darkness throughout the day!) our next room which was placed on the 7th floor had a view to the city and was more acceptable. The location is excellent. Breakfast was ok. Receptions were... More

We stayed in this hotel 2 days so we didnt had any problems. All hotels in Istanbul are the same. the Brkfst was poor. the good part that it is located in Taksim square where you should take a walk by night also to do some shoping. Try to book a room in the last floor less noise.
