I stayed in Cartoon hotel with a friend, we had no problem with the room and we couldn't wait to get up in the morning and have their wonderful breakfast! In the center of the city, although it's generaly not very safe especially for women - we were afraid to get out and have a walk around the hotel late... More

This hotel is located just in front of Taksim Square a very good place for nightlife and shopping with easy access to all forms of transportation. I stayed here for several weeks for business and visited different rooms. One tip: some of the rooms are renovated and are much better with modernized beds clean bathrooms and flat TV etc. If...

I've been so many times in instanbul and I can say now without hesitation that this hotel is the best we can find there. The service is wonderful, the rooms are cleaned up minimum 2 times per day and you're never disturbed. The food is really incredible and the service at the bar/restaurant is of very high quality!

Yes the location is good, the breakfast was Ok and the beds were comfy but the place is desperately in need of a makeover and a good steam clean. Carpets and furniture a bit old and dirty looking, our curtains were hanging off and the toilet roll holder not fixed properly to the wall etc. Needs some serious TLC. Probably... More

This is an expensive hotel and the air conditioning should work. If you open the window in this busy neighborhood it is too loud to get any sleep. The beds are nice and new but covering myself with a clean white down comforter and no sheet was not the way to sleep. The hotel is conveniently close to Taksim Square... More

I was a little scared of the negative reviews I read about this place before we went. However, after staying there I felt it was a pretty nice hotel for the amount of time we spent in Istanbul (5 days). The staff are friendly enough, the room is clean and the breakfast buffet is really nice (not that big but... More

The Cartoon hotel sure lives up its name. Imagine an outlived 70's hotel, pimped up with Disney figurines. Pieces de resistances are the 18th century gravures with cut outs of cartoon characters stuck on. Not to mention the plaster reliefs of Mickey and friends. The room price is no laughing matter. At 150 euro/night you expect something more serious. Value... More
