I stayed here for 2 nights in August 2014 and had a pleasant stay. Great location - it is located right next to Taksim square, the shopping street Istiklal and the subway (easy access to Sultanahmet and the beautiful sights of the old Istanbul). The rooms aren't overly spacious however I was staying on my own so I didn't mind.... More

Based on what I paid for this hotel and that it is rated 4 stars I was extremely disappointed. The rooms are very very small. By the time you put your suitcases in the room there is no room to move. The carpet is filthy. I would not walk on the carpet without shoes. I must say though the staff... More

This hotel is great. I stayed there for 3 nights in July. Perfect location just near the subway and the famous shopping street Istiklal and with lots of pubs right outside it. The staff are very friendly, breakfast is really good with a breathtaking view over the city and the Bosphorus although seagulls might join you for breakfast, luckily from... More

If you can tolerate the following this hotel is for you: - No gym - Smelly carpet - Staff don't speak English very well - Beggars outside of the hotel all day everyday - Small rooms - Surrounded by nightclubs & music from nightclubs all night can be heard in your room so good luck sleeping - Only one lift...

The hotel is situated in the perfect place in the heart of the city. The service however is somehow poor. The restaurant is on the top floor with great terrace view and if you don't mind the seagulls landing on the table it is great for heaving breakfast. However one bit problem is that there is only one elevator. I... More

Excellent Location in the heart of Taksim Square. The hotel is very well presented with every modern facility you need. The best part of the experience was dealing with the staff. Each and every member of the staff we dealt with were very friendly and could not do more to help us, whether it was finding a restaurant or a... More

The hotel is very close to taksim. The room carpet wasn't very clean (a bit old) the view of the room wasn't pleasant. Breakfast menu is ok and they have nice out door setting. There is only one elevator and very slow. The hotel has a spa in their basement with several services. Overall it's ok if you are planning... More

I have spent four days in March 2014 for a business trip. The location of the hotel is excellent just in the middle of Taksim Maydan, and near everything; i.e. restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, a supermarket, and anything one may needed. The staffs are very helpful and their English is good. I was in room 412 with a Bosphorus... More
