Very rude staff!!after making a reservation via booking.com they changed the room and the rates!when we refused they almost kicked off us out with their bad attitude!so if u want to end up being in the streets with your luggage in a foreign country this is ur hotel! Note: we love turkey and we've been there more than 10 times!

The location is awesome. Just a few meters from istikal street the metro and tram. The rooms are small. We had the suite room and yet it was small.. and when I say small I mean really small. We never had the breakfast from the hotel. There are plenty of options just outside that will work out cheaper than the... More

Stayed with a friend for 9 days during spring break. We have changed the hotel originally booked at the last minute to Hotel Taksim Star and we didn't regret it. I had stayed before at two 4 star hotels in Taksim ( Feronya and Grand Oztanik) Taksim Star was far less cheaper and better though it is rated as 3... More

The room was small but was not so problem for us. We loved the bathroom which is well decorated with luxury items.Also I give the top rates... More

Bottom line first - we had a good stay, and would definetly recommend it to others. As already stated, the location is just superb. I've been to other 3 star hotels in this area, and this one is a pretty fierce competition. The room was not as large as promised in the bookings.com website, but was adequate. It overlooked the...

This is the worst hotel I dealt with ever. Dirty rooms and disqualified staff. The beds are covered by very dirty covers. The staff are not helpful at all. Sleep quality and services are so poor. Very bad hotel in general

Clean room, if you get one with view to bosporus, that´s really great. Great location, really central, just a short walk to taksim square. Thus it´s a little bit noisy. Nice price, friendly reception staff. I would recommend this hotel.
