We spent in this property 7 nights. Location is good - almost directly on Taksim Square (1 min). Manager and guys on reception are great and very helpful. Rooms look very modern. Rooms are quite small but I guess this is a standard in Instanbul. We were missing some closet / wardrobe - there is no space where you can... More

A bit tricky to find down a little side street but my fault for not printing off a map. I arrived early and planned to leave my luggage and return later to check in, but was given a great welcome and told that I could check in straight away and offered breakfast compliments of the house. Staff were very informative... More

Nice small hotel right in the heart of Taksim. Short walk from the airport bus shuttle. The street itself is quite rough but the hotel itself is pleasant. The best part about the hotel is its staff. The owner was very friendly and inviting. The receptionists were always on hand to give advice and directions. The room was decent size... More

I stayed at Retropera Hotel for 4 nights in late December, and the least I could say about my stay was that it was amazing. The people at the hotel were wonderful, they went the extra mile to keep me company on my first night there since I was alone. Rahmi,one of the partners, made the effort to take me... More

This is a great boutique hotel just moments from Taksim Square and Istiklal Cadessi, and its location makes it easy to get around to all parts of the city using the various public transportation options. Management staff are outstanding (Tugrul in particular) -- exceptionally friendly and providing advice on sites to see, restaurants, best ways to travel the city, etc.... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
