Perfect location for those who want to go out and find good restaurants and bars. Close to public transportation. Good breakfast and very kind service. Families with strollers: watch out because to enter this hotel you have to go up or down a stair (people from the hotel helped us, but this is a point to be reviewed).

What really makes this hotel is the location, staff and service. It was also super convenient getting to all the major tourist attractions in Istanbul without having to walk through crowds. Metro was a few meters away and top restaurants all around you. In the morning the views from the breakfast room are fantastic and you are greeted by resident... More

This hotel is located in a great area, at the end of Istiklal Street near the Galata Tower in Taksim, Beyoglu. Beware - lots of stairs to climb up and down to get to the hotel entrance. There is a lift inside to take you up to your floor. The room and bathroom were on the small side but was... More

My friend and I realized that we missed the flight at 1 a.m. (the flight was delayed and we over slept), so we decided to go back to the hotel because we didn't know where else to go. The concierge managed to get a room though they had planned to get that room fixed for plumbing in the morning after.... More

Lovely, quaint Hotel in a superb location! Just a few steps away from the famous shopping street Istiklal. Great area for shopping, dining and experiencing the unique vibe and culture of local life. The rooms of the hotel were much smaller than expected and although they have a mini-bar, there's no kettle which was a bit of a disappointment. Would... More

Have just returned from a 1 night stay at this hotel, and wished it was longer! The staff were excellent - we arrived at 11am, and they got our room ready for us to check in, they helped us to the metro when leaving with our bags (down A LOT of outside steps), the breakfast was great, with amazing views....

Room 401, where we stayed, was very nice. It could have done with additional space for clothes, but there was enough storage for a five-day stay.

Beautiful views from the terrace where breakfast, which was... 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.
