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

Just 30 seconds from taksim square and taksim subway station in a very quiet and safe area with many hotels around. The room was pretty nice, not that big but... More
