We stayed here for 6 days and had a great time. The hotel is only 2 minutes away from Taksim square and Istiklal street. The staff were friendly and helpful. The place is cute and lovely. If I go back to Istanbul I'd go back to this hotel again ;)

A great hotel conveniently located in the Taksim/Beyoglu area. This spot was easy to get to from the Taksim Metro Station since it was just a 5 minute walk. From this hotel, it’s a short walk to other sites in the lively area (Istiklal Avenue/Street is only a few minutes from the hotel as well). Upon arrival I received amazing... More

We love Lush. We've stayed there twice already. On our last stay, they upgraded our room and the staff was very accommodating. The location is really ideal as you are right next door to Istiklal Caddesi where most of the shops, bars and restaurants are. It is quite easy to walk here from the HAVATAŞ station. The hotel is close... More

We stayed at Lush recently as part of a large group booking of friends celebrating a special birthday and we would definitely recommend it to other Istanbul first-timers (who like us, were finding the sheer volume of hotel options and district choices a little overwhelming!). The hotel itself is very well-located within two minutes' walk of buzzy Taksim Square and... More

Stayed here for a week, very central, staff really friendly and helpful. Its not a fancy hotel but has all the amenities at about half the rate in other hotels. Only advice: negotiate taxi rates to airport if the hotel calls you a cab, they tend to overcharge.
