Hotel is not bad espeicially if u took one of the cornor rooms at the 8th floor, which has a wide balcony. Rooms there r good n deicent plus hotel is close to all sight seeings. Breakfast is not bad for those who are not there for food only ((;. Good location. Good for low budget.

Good location, minutes away from Taksim square and the Metro. Rooms are clean and friendly reception staff. Reception staff not forthcoming to help with local travel information unless you ask specific information. Local attraction leaflets were only displayed on the day we were leaving. Choose top floors as the noise from street level and the Club opposite can be disturbing.... More

We were invoiced for a triple room, but there were one french bed (surely not for two adults) and one single bed. Furthermore, there were only two sets of towels for three persons... Walls were too slim to hear the next rooms, even when they... More

Best feature of this hotel is Location. It's right next to Taksim square and across the famous Istiklal street. Metro station is almost right next to the hotel. Rooms were comfortable, shower was a bit of a problem because it is set permanently on the wall and you can't actually just take a shower, you must wash your hair too.... More
