I stayed 4 nights in this Hotel with my wife. The hotel is not conveniently located. Its about an hour walk to Taksim Square. On the other hand, with relatively low taxi-cost taxi you are fast in the center. The general areas are in my view 5-star rating. The rooms, however, can be rates as an average hotel. The room...

I trusted Priceline.com to get me a 5 star hotel and stick this hotel to me instead of 5 star. This is no more than 3 or 3 and half star hotel at most.Surmeli Istanbul may be a 5 star for people traveling from middle east but don't go there expecting 5 star if you are traveling from US or... More

Stayed here for three nights for a business trip. Location is quite remote especislly if you have business in the old city. The closest metro stop is a good 8-12 minute walk away and along some streets with elevation. Also the variety of dining immediately near the hotel is extremely limited. The big plus for this hotel is a robust,... More
