The staff is so rude and unpleasant and the pool is not working one of the worst hotels in taksim although the location was good... And the fridge of the hotel wasn't working many times and it wasn't possible to use it and the view of the room was like omg it was just so awful you can't believe it

the receptionists are rude and they get extra charge from mini-bar for them selves. no bill, no certain document will be issued for you to show the extra-charge. the rooms and the share areas are look like he horror movies. please check the other choice. forget this hotel. you will wast your money if you will reserve this hotel.

My dirtiest hotel experience ever. Staff do their best, but carpets, bathroom, walls, etc. are just too dirty to be wiped clean. Elevators are too old and slow. I had to take the stairs most of the times. A/C wasn't working well. The main and probably only positive is location.

Inpolitly behaviour was the first point that every body can see. In rooms , there is not any free water( I never see this limitation for water before that time). We should pay money to the stuffs every hours for different reasons. This was a terrible experience.

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.
