As a hotel, Cartoon Hotel is a sweet place with nice staffers who are ready to help you day and night whatever you request. What makes it special though is where it's situated as it is almost opposite Taksim Sq, the main Sq of the city. Many of the most interesting and worth seeing cites -such as the Galata Tower-...

Stayed here in December 2013 and there was a lot of building and renovation going on, but this did not affect our stay in Istanbul. Cartoon hotel rooms are very basic but quite big and have good sound-proofing. Wifi also worked in the rooms which was a bonus. It is situated facing taksim square, istiklal street and a metro station... More

Just 50 meters from the main Taxim square, 70 meters from Istiklal main street and a Trum distance from every-where. The staff was very helpful and nice. the breakfast was amazing at the 9th floor with a great view to all Istanbul, Defiantly will go again!

Cartoon hotel is located few steps from Taksim square, breakfast is great at the roof, staff is very friendly, the hotel is currently under renovation, so almost no lobby or waiting area. Rooms are very small yet clean and well equipped.

The only redeeming part of this hotel was the breakfast - which was quite wonderful. However, I would much rather have sacrificed the delicious breakfast for : 1) friendly and helpful staff 2) quiet and darkness (away from light damage) 3) comfort and amenities in the room service. To start, the hotel staff was very cold when I arrived late... More

The hotel is very conveniently located right next to Taksim Square. You can reach the Istanbul Conference Center by foot in around 15 min and just around the corner from shops and restaurants. Free WIFI which worked well. I was not that impressed by the room, which was both a bit small and quite worn. Had to ask three times... More
