Hotel located in a narrow street a few steps from Taksim sq. & the metro station. Be wary of beggars all over the street! Although it is indicated that the staff speaks English, they hardly understand a word. I was on the phone with the front desk for 15 minutes trying to get someone to understand that I wanted to...

Poor service, overrated. Location is perfect, in the heart of Istanbul. Good for short visits, but slightly overpriced. Staff was polite, but not very helpful. Elevator was not functional, so one was forced to take the stairs. Location is the only thing in favor to this hotel.

The hotel was ok for the dollars paid, its a budget hotel. Most of the staff was nice, breakfast was ok, close to metro, food and shopping, nothing really wrong with the hotel, make sure you take a map with you if you are coming by metro from the airport. Enjoy you trip.

Even though I put do not disturb on the door handle, the cleaner still entered the room and took $100. To prove that the manager showed me cctv of the cleaner going inside my room twice and yet the... More

İts very suitabel in situation to the center and metro station. Some room have very nice view to Bosphorus. Breakfast was also good. But there was some bad aspect like Wi-Fi. When we stayed there first day we located in the old part of the hotel where was bored and dull. But completely its a good hotel.

Unbelievably bad experience and this is the worst hotel one could ever have the misfortune of landing in. The room smelled mold and we had to leave the window opened for hours to just be able to breath. The bathroom was subdivided into a shower and washing area, unfortunately the shower has one of those wooden steps that is rotten... More

toilet odors were smelling all over the room, no mini bar, dental kit, working TV, slippers were available in our room and NO soundproofing, you can talk with your neighbor behind the walls. Breakfast was horrible, at 9 am the food was mostly over and no appropriate variety of food was available, bread was tasting old, cereals tasted like expired,... More
