Excellent hotel located in the proximity of Taksim Square, very centric and located to close transportation, bus and taxis. The hotel is modern, boutique style, breakfast is buffet style with some local twist, rooms are small size but very conformtable and modern, barthroom, bed, etc is all well spaced. Something to improve would be the english level of the hotel... More

PLUS; New, very clean, good central location, cool interior, new and functional gym equipment, sweet staff. COULD BE BETTER; Reception staff was young and not service minded, extra charge for a nespresso capsules in the room which is just irritating, very high minibar prices. Tv channels selection limited. MINUS; Very uncomfortable bed. Slow and unstable internet connection.

We stayed here for 3 nights primarily because the rooms were modern and contemporary (designed by Philippe Starck). We had looked at hotels in the old city but they had ghastly furnishings and were old. Even though this is no longer a Yoo2 hotel, we still had a lovely time. The staff were efficient and friendly; we arrived early in... More

Having arrived in Istanbul to be dropped at a hotel without the name that you're expecting is slightly disconcerting, as Yoo2 has recently been sold and is now called Avantgarde. The boutique hotel certainly remains exactly that, and once you've negotiated how the light switches work, you'll settle into a very comfortable room overlooking Taksim Square. The breakfasts are good... More
