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

Inside the rooms are very small in compare to other 4 star hotels in Istanbul, even I got a big room (exception). The team is very kind and helpfull, accesories inside the room are ok. For... More

It was about 20 – 30 min away from the international airport, and that depends on the traffic, Unfortunate for us there was traffic jammed and the roads to the hotel were under construction The advantage and the disadvantage of this hotel was its location, it’s maybe very close to Taksim Street and Square, where all the shops are; yet...

The location was great - right on Taksim Square. The service or quality of hotel rooms was not up to four star it claims to be. The air-con was the noisiest i have ever had in a hotel room, that combined with the street noise made it hard to sleep. Also, if the Hotel wishes to have cartoons as its... More

No sleep.. Too weak noize proof. Amazed how few people speak English.. Ok breakfast... Safty boxes were portable, take it with you when you leave the hotel. Did not feel safe, had to carry all valuables always with you. Construction work of a new street just next to the hotel. It began very night at 11pm.
