There was a real shock in store for us when we arrived at the hotel. The whole lobby was being redecorated. There was no reception desk, a small desk with a few folders and a telephone was what greater us. The sign at the front if the hotel was taken down too. We were woken up each morning at 8:00... More

We stayed here for one week. Location was great.... that's about all I can say. I booked this hotel for the amenities it offered, swimming pool, spa, tukish bath etc... however they felt it unnecessary to inform us that they were undergoing major renovations. None of the amenities were available. I understand doing renovations before peak season but they should... More

I went to this hotel with my family and it was really awful. The whole lobby was an absolute mess. It was undergoing major repairs and major re-construction. THIS HOTEL IS NOT IN A CONDITION TO ACCEPT ANY GUESTS. I would strongly recommend against staying here and recommend that the hotel should be shut down whilst undergoing major building re-construction.... More

This quite centrally located hotel is currently undergoing significant maintenance. By significant I mean: bring a helmet, welding glasses and a face mask to protect you from dust. The whole ground floor leaves you with the impression that Jason Bourne recently chased through it with a semi truck and left behind the mess you remember from the movies. Alternatively I... More

I have stayed for 9 nights at Hotel Grand Star in feb 2014. The room was OK. Not that big, but with a good size. Fits two guests perfectly. My room seemed very new... cleanliness was OK, as well as the breakfast and the hotel staff. The location is amazing. The street is parallel to Istiklal Cadessi, a point for... More

Only good thing is location to the Taksim area. Except the good thing you may stay away from this hotel since there is a lot hotel choices apart. -staffs (receptionists and managers) don't think about their guests/services but they think money first for all occasions -no mini bar (if you check-in late evening there is nothing to drink or eat)...
