I spent three nights at this hotel. The rooms are small and dark. The windows were dirty. The bathroom was not clean. You can hear, all the time, voices from the next room, from the hallway. It was impossible to sleep. Also, the breakfast was average. The stuff were unhelpful.This definitly is not a hotel for recommendation.

We stayed there as part of a coach trip in September 2013. The hotel is old and the rooms were poor to average. The staff were unhelpful with quite poor English for people in the hospitality industry - one guy couldn't even be bothered photocopying a map for us. The breakfast was okay but the one dinner we had there... More

The bathrooms were also a good size and clean. The hotel had everything we needed. The breakfast buffet was... More

This hotel is in a great location in Beyoglu, overlooking the water, right next to a Metro stop and a short walk from Istiklal Cadessi (the famous walking and shopping street) and about 15 minute walk from Taksim Square. It is a Turkish style hotel for business people (although I did see some families there) with a pool and spa... More
