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...

Moved to this hotel when there were problems at another hotel in Taksim, where Recepsionist tried to settle into a room in the basement. Very well spent the night 2 nights, delicious breakfasts, close to the metro and bus stop to the airport. If someone wants to live in Taksim very nice hotel.
