This hotel is right at the Taksim Square. Which means, great location. The breakfast place on the corner is pretty good. Hotel Bar is not overpriced, reasonably priced and friendly. You are 5 minutes away from the Taksim street where you will see lots of locals and tourists. Little far to get to Museums on west side, but it's not... More

The hotel is stylish in decoration and this is carried through to the staff who are very friendly and make you feel very welcome.

situated at the main taksim square, the hotel is just minutes away on foot from the famous istiklal street. The rooms are good, acceptable breakfast menu and a well equipped gym. Lots of restaurants around to savour authentic turkish food. The staff ia very helpful and the hotel provides all the basic amenities..

You are only a few steps from the metro stair cases. Its door is just like an apartment's enterance so you really feel as you are at home. Moreover, the people working in the hotel are very friendly and try to do whatever they can to make you happy.

However we luckily did not get any damp or musty smell. The heater is a weird one as well.. It has its own mind and starts and stops every few... More

This hotel is just infront of taksim square which is a must for tourist who wants to go shopping with branded apparels. From airport I have come by bus, it was near bus stop, but you ensure to look at each building signboard, as Germir Palas have a very tiny board inside umbrella type canopy. But there are 2 entrance,... More

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.
