I stayed there for a couple of days, and I like it. It's clean, the staff are kind, the location is great. So near from Taksim square. I may try it again, it's cool for couples, though I was alone, but It still has a good and quite atmosphere. I didn't try the food. It has many restaurants nearby.

The staff doesn't speak very good English! The rooms were very clean and quiet! Nice breakfast for that price! The location was perfect! Near to taxi square! 5 minutes from istiklal,the Main Street! It is worth it! Enjoy

I stayed for 3 nights at Riva Hotel for business and the stay was average. It is located at a place - Taksim - which offers many more hotel options to choose from. Since this was my first time to Istanbul, I just booked Riva as it was recommended by a colleague who had stayed there. It's a no-frill stay... More

I spent my honeymoon in Riva Hotel. I was there on May 2013. I've spent there 10 days. Everything about this hotel is simply amazing from food, cleanliness, to staff. The hotel is in the center of Taksim. I really miss being there so much...
