First night at 3am I asked for a change of room since my room 107 was vibrating loudly from disco bar downstairs. I was lucky to get another room (my collegue was not), seventh floor was quiet. Also this room was very small and both bathrooms had some issues with smell from sinks, although rooms were OK clean. Except one... More

We stayed in the Sultanahmet area at the start of our trip to Turkey, with Cappadocia and Izmir in between, and then Taksim upon our return to Istanbul. Our room (203) was not huge by any means - in fact you could not open the door much more than at a 45 degree angle without it hitting the bed! AND... More

My friend and I stayed at the Taksim Star Hotel. It is situated in a very location special if you need to catch the shuttle to the Sabiha Gokcen airport. The airport is situated in a Asian part of Istanbul, so far from the city centre and to use the shuttle is the best and cheaper option. The Hotel it... More

I have visited Istanbul last week for business, I had a great service from all the staff, specially for the manager Sema, she was humble, and very nice. She made the difference and I will absolutely come back :)

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We were offered an upgrade with no extra charge to a sea view room in the 8th floor, room no. 801. The room has a spectacular view looking to the bosphorus bridge. The bathroom also has a full panoramic view, you can enjoy the scenery while having a shower. We stayed for 7... More

Let's get it straight - this is a hotel for people that have no requirements for ANYTHING, AT ALL. If you have some standards and are used to get what you pay for - stay away from this hotel and go elsewhere!!! I arrived there with my family a day before the New Year's Eve and we were given two...

Nice small hotel near Taksim, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Had nice room on 8th floor. Service at hotel was good. We have nothing to complain. Had been at Taksim Star several times and never had nothing to complain. At breakfast was this time missing a toaster.

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
