Sadly we hadn't done adequate research and needed somewhere last minute to stay. The property took the total fee at the time of booking and when we arrived they said they needed cash as a guarantee in turkish lira. We had no choice or would have been out on the streets. After explaining it would be in our account in... More

It's the same hotel as Cozy suites, same building same staff, so I suggest you read the reviews for that hotel as well. I wouldn't give them more than one star, it's dirty and it always smells of smoke because they smoke inside, when we've been there the light up in the stairs was broken and it was really dangerous,...

We booked two rooms at this hotel and we arrived there after a long day when the Taksim area was closed, to find out that we they did not have any room available, although we had paid for it. The staff at the desk just informed us that they are fullt booked and that there is nothing they can do.... More

The hotel has a great location and that is one of the only positive things I can say about it. My husband and I had a balcony room, we were made to pay in cash as soon as we arrived which I was not aware of and had planned to pay by card. The room was dirty, huge stains on... More

I'm a female who was travelling alone. PLEASE READ. Hotel was clean and that's the only good thing about it. It's located two roads off Istiklal Ave., good location, in theory, but it can be a bit creepy at night. The manager is a pervert. He asked whether he could accompany me to dinner on the first night I got... More

Before coming to the actual hotel itself, I have to say it has a fabulous location! In Beyoglu, just round the corner from Istiklal Cadessi, Taksim Square and the metro! For this, one can forgive the hotel for being very small - but it was neat and clean and I was happy to find spotless linen on the bed. We... More
