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

Rooms are too small but who wants to stay in room when you are so near to Taksim. Hard to find by any taxi driver and the street is very very steep, still a good value for money. 3 minutes walk away from Taksim square and Taksim metro station. I had a double room on 7th floor with a nice... More

Taksim Star Express is located approx 200 metres from Taksim Square. a major hub in Istanbul. The hotel is adequate even though our room was small, including the shower. The toilet/sink was leaking water each time we used it, but was reported but not fixed whilst we were there. However, as we spent most of the day sightseeing, it had... More

I received very nice double room at the seventh floor with panoramic view on the street. Room size was quite comfortable, in contrary to what I expected considering the general reviews that I read about hotels in Istanbul. Rooms are very clean, with comfy bed and bathroom. It’s on great location, at the Taksim square, which makes it good value... More

its a good hotel in a suitable situation an for the price that you pay , it can be a good hotel.The most important matter is that you can go around easily and there is no need to take a taxi. I have stayed a week in this hotel in a twin room.
