The location is not bad but the hotel smells like a brothel, service is bad and everything is chargeable even an omelette. The coffee shops and the sweet shops beside the hotel is what makes you stay for one day, the square is always lively which makes it a good location and finally the price is expensive compared to the...

The hotel is situated on the hill so if you are lucky to have a room on higher floor and you may have a nice view to Bosphorus and surrounding. Staff is very friendly especially at reception. Rooms convenient enough, clean but sometimes slightly stinking. WiFi is free and mostly good transfer. Breakfast on 9th floor and rich enough. In... More

The breakfast is good (most Turkish food) and restaurant has enough places, on top floor of hotel with view of the Bosphorus. Wifi is good quality... More

Absolutely fantastic hotel. You cannot get any closer to the action on Taksim Square. Great staff despite not understanding English but for the amount of time we spent there that wasn't a problem. Will definately get back to Istanbul and this place will be the first we look for. The noise didn't put us off. After all we were quite... More
