This is centrally located, just beside famous Taksim square from where you can reach any part of Istanbul by Metro, funicular, tram or bus. I found the staffs very cordial, friendly and helpful. You require any help, they are ready to assist. I booked a standard room, but when I reached at the evening they gave me a suit which... More

Great location right on Taksim Square. This is the hotel's chief asset. The rooms were fine; quite small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good, but not exceptional. Overall, this is a good choice for value and location. I would stay there again.

It's at a great location and quite reasonable. The staff is friendly & helpful. The breakfast very good. However the name and the themed corridors of cartoon characters really are most incongruous with a 3 star rating - a bit of a put-off...... Would surely recommend it if you're the typical tourist just needing a good nights sleep & wholesome... More

I was super disappointed with this hotel's Shockingly Bad service. I will never stay here again. Just some of the highlights: Room cleaning staff must be completely untrained. The room was always in a mess with dirty clothes and towel thrown on top of clean ones. The reception staff were not happy to see us. Breakfast was suitable only to... More

Stayed in Cartoon Hotel for three nights. Excellent location at Taxim Square very close to the funicular and Istiklal Street. The breakfast spread was very impressive for a hotel of this category. The front office was very helpful and the wifi speed could not be faulted. The only problem was the housekeeping and the fact that they charge for bottled... More
