First of all, I picked this hotel because price was right and location was awesome. Right at the door steps of the hotel, Besiktas minibuses were waiting. 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

I went to this hotel with my boyfriend last February. The room was nice, cosy and clean as well. The price was very good. It is very close to istiklal street but if i were going again in Instabul i would prefer to have a room close to spice bazaar or the hagia sofia because you have to take 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

It was at 5 minutes walk from Taksim Square. The room and the bathroom were very small. In night it was hot: we couldn’t sleep with the air conditioner on, because it was noisy and it was getting too cold, we also tried to leave opened the window, but a lot of noise was coming from the street. We could... More

I chose this hotel since it had a high rating on multiple websites but after experiencing it I found that it is highly overrated. The rooms are very small, the room wasn't cleaned well upon check-in, most of the staff were barely friendly. Breakfast was very poor, I didn't understand how it was called a continental breakfast. I thought this... More
