Crystal hotel is one of the worst hotels I've ever seen. When we got there they asked us to change our hotel and move to another hotel nearby which was cheaper than Crystal because they didn't have empty rooms!

Maybe not original 4 stars hotel but a good choice to walk by feet to taksim area! Comparing the price of the hotels at that area, i think its price is ok! Spacious room with large single beds and comfortable sleeping! Good breakfast (buffet). Clean and very close to taksim!

Because all travel agencies give departure times same for daily city tours and transfers as 09:00 o'clock and all people come to breakfast 15 or 20 minutes before their departure. therefore it...

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
