Really loved my stay in this hotel. It has a family hotel feel to it , nice and very clean But most of all has the nicest staff I've ever come across !! It just goes to show that it doesn't matter how big or what brand you are , customers appreciate the basic stuff. It's not complicated HOTELIERS !... More

In the end of November 2014, I stayed two nights at the Retropera Hotel in Istanbul. It was a very satisfying experience. The room I was given was relatively small, but very beautiful and tidy. Everything in it was just perfect: the inner decoration reminding a retro atmosphere, the shower with hot water all the day long and most of... More

I don't know where to start from..everything about this place was perfect. Since the time we arrived outside the hotel in our taxi till we left for the airport we were well looked after and felt like being at home. Would like to specially mention Mr.Togrul (Manager) who helped us in every possible way and gave the best advise to... More

We weren't that wowed by this hotel to start with, probably because the hotel we'd stayed in in Istanbul two weeks earlier when we passed through was so much better. The room was small but stylish and clean. The location is central. Not bad. But we were a bit irritated when they forgot to return our passports... we almost forgot... More

What a lovely hotel in right next to Taksim square. The manager and owner were both warm, friendly and eager to assist every day. We had a stunning view from our hotel room on the 4th floor. They helped us with reservations and recommendations. We would most certainly return without a doubt. convenient, chic, and true gem in the heart... More

Super service. They were always on top of every thing. They asked daily how we felt, what we needed it. Awesome people and management. Super attention every minute. They even gave us presents at the time of our Check Out. No words. Rooms modern and clean. Place is perfectly located, by Taksim Square. Don't miss the place.

In a place where English is not even the second language, if you get people who are so helpful and good advisers for the tourists rather than pulling out money from their pockets. The hotel is very cute and nice - (Yellow Door) and the best location for a tourist who wants to explore the city. The best part of... More
