We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. Perfect location (only 5 minutes away from Taksim Square and Istiklal street) the breakfast is good but no variety. Rooms are small (as well as the beds). Very clean and recently renovated. Pleasant staff, not everyone knows English but they'll do their best to help you. This hotel is recommended if you're planning... More

Riva Hotel provides everything you would need on a trip to Istanbul. It is conveniently located in Taksim, on a safe street as opposed to other narrow alleyways which can often turn out to be dodgy! Mind the roadworks on the way to the Taksim square though... The room was always cleaned to an excellent standard and the breakfast was... More

Warm rooms, cozy, clean. Full breakfast and helpful stuff. Only 3 minutes walk from Istiklal street although we had to pass from moody streets because of the closing and renovation of Taxim Square. Wifi connection was difficult for some reason.. Overall a good impression :)
