Great location (though passing that haunted-like building nearby on the alleyway was eirie). Friendly staff. Great breakfast. I was on a first floor room. Just needs that other part of the curtain (half is missing). Had to turn lights out as I passed by the window at night. The layout of the medium-sized room requires that you pass by that... More

The staff are friendly, perfect location to reach taksim square around 5 min walk and the price is awesome! I went there with friends...a bit hard to reach it for the first time but we managed quickly to memorise the road and the hotel entrance.

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

Dear guest. vacuum cleaner does not work any more in the morning. you can prevent the card at the top of the door as long as you do not bother hanging personnel from entering your room. If you wish, you can lock the door from the inside and can get rid of this problem. Taking into account these problems, our... More

This is one of the best options around Taksim if you are on a budget. The rooms are definitely small but they are quite comfortable. The location is excellent. The hotel is along a pleasant back street leading off from the square. The breakfast is ok but you might prefer to go out as there are much better Turkish breakfasts... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
