If there were ever an international competition for the worst hotel in the world, the Taksim Star of Istanbul would be an outright winner. Apart from the only plus of being very centrally located, in every other way it is a DISASTER! While sourcing hotels to stay in Istanbul we were recommended this place by my colleague, whose friends had... More

Although it used to be a nice hotel with good service and fine location I would like to share my latest experience that makes me feel cheated. First of all the room size became twice smaller in comparison to 2012 - while renovating every seaview room was divided in two. Besides the walls are just from paper, you can hear... More

Great location and good for the money.. Service not so good.. First of all they try to give us a corner room with not even curtains.. After negotiating they finally gave us another one. In the morning the cleaners talk so loud while they are cleaning other rooms.. I was able to hear everything. Door slammed, elevator, people walking in... More

The rooms are spacious and very clean. We arrive early for check- in. We waited for about an half hour. Our baggage was delivered to the room while we waited. It's a short walk to Taksim square & Istiklal street.

The good: the location is perfect near taksim square and istiqlal road. Walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. The bad: standard rooms are small.. They dont provide water everyday. And its noisy The ugly: the rooms smell really bad.. We bought air fresheners

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
