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

This is my second visit to this hotel,staff are friendly but not into having a long chat with you.Rooms are small but cleaned daily, buffet breakfast is the same every day but edible. Real plus is close location to Taxim Sq where you can get transport to any part of the city,old or new. Recommend it as a base to... 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

Hotel is 5 minutes walk away from Taksim square and metro station, practically you can go anywhere in Istanbul. Hotel was very clean. Room was very clean. Bed was so so good, not... More

I was in this hotel for two nights with my wife. The rooms are extremely small (3.2 x3 mts small). I must say it was very clean, but it was very unconfortable. Also the noce from the street and from insideof the hotel was too much, even sleeping on the 3rd floor. Finally, and whats worst, the service from the... More

Very rude front desk supervisor and staff is not any better. Disrespectful, difficult and unwilling to help. If you do decide to check in you better check the bed for bedbugs and linens for stains. I had to change room twice. The hotel breakfast is very basic and you will be charged extra for the juice!! Need a taxi to... More

Like some of the other reviews on this page - Taksim Star Express is certainly worth avoiding. For instance, they have no regard for the DO NOT DISTURB SIGN. Apparently housekeeping like to clean the rooms early and have no problem with just walking in and kicking you out! Even if you're still in bed! If you complain - they... More
