This hotel is in a great location, with many things to do nearby. Very easy to walk to the metro station to see other areas of the city. The hotel can be very noisy, due to the busy street directly outside. We ended up playing white noise from an app on the phone to sleep. During our stay, housekeeping service... More

People who give this hotel excellent rating are extremely generous in my opinion. Our room was tiny with a small bed even though we booked a king size bed, bathroom wasn't cleaned very well and we even found some stuff from previous guests. On a brighter note, location of a hotel is very good and guys at the frond desk... More

Located right in the center of the nightlife, this hotel provides everything you need. Clean, comfortable, spacious, cheap.. There is nothing more you can ask from this place. Maybe it can get a little noisy during the weekends, but you risk that by staying in this neighborhood. REALLY recommend it for everyone. Staff is also very friendly and kind.

Great place to stay, the rooms are small and comfortable, the crew is nice but their English is limited, the hotel doesn't have elevator but is not that bad going up unless you have a lot of luggage, the area is very loud and if you are looking for quiet place it won't be good for you, if you need...

Amazing location right on Istiklal Avenue, the main strip in Istanbul's trendy Beyoglu neighbourhood. Good value hotel with bare bones amenities, small but clean rooms, and 24-hour concierge. A little hard to find, just look for the 'Serene Hotel' neon sign on a second floor window facing Istiklal then walk down the alley and around the corner to the lobby... More

A few weeks ago we stayed in Hotel Serene for a long weekend. The staff was very helpfull and kind. They took our suitcase to the third floor and helped us with finding some places we wanted to visit. The room was more than fine. It was a nice and clean room. On Istiklal, the touristic street. Even I already... More

We loved the location, right off the incredible pedestrian thoroughfare, Istiklal Caddesi. Our room overlooked the street, which was fantastic for crowd watching, but made it not so very serene later in the night, as musical beats continued to thump on. It wasn't bad enough to make us lose sleep, but a lighter sleeper might have trouble. Other rooms might... More
