We stayed there for three nights last December. When we saw the hotel inside we just said WOW ! the design is perfect and the room design even better! Its like an old palace or castle! The rooms are not very big but this might not be a problem. If u have time, ask for a room with a balcony... More

Nice mid-range hotel with excellent location for young travellers, near Istiklal. Our room was small and some traffic noise so I wouldn't recomment it for peace-lovers. Breakfast basic &ok and very friendly staff.

I am regular guest to this hotel for a number of years and love its location. The problem now is construction in progress so very noisy. The staff are most helpful and wonderful buffet breakfast. Siraselviler is a noisy street

I have stayed in the Lush hotel on many occasions over the past year - for good reason! Friendly staff, great breakfast and excellent location for Taksim and Galata Tower area! I have tried other hotels in the area, but always return to the Lush!!

Everything about our stay was well done by Lush. Taksim area is active 24 hours a day it seems and sometimes you get to share that in your room - no fault of the hotel, but drivers love their horns and cops enjoy hearing themselves on their loudspeakers.

Good location. Stone's throw from Taksim square, very close to Istiklal street. Easy access to money changers, small restaurants, shops, fruit sellers. Helpful staff,,,,but English skills are limited. Actually one needs a translator app. throughout Turkey. Anyway, rooms are small with little space overall. Also the rooms are poorly lit....dim lights. Honestly i would have loved one sharp light. No... More

Well located on the heart of the Asian side of Istanbul, (in Taksim), Lush is a quaint little budget hotel for travelers who want a simple night's sleep. The rooms are very small and tight with windows that have no view except for the inner walls of the next building. The bathrooms do not come stocked with toiletries so please... More

The location is great, but drain in the shower barely works plus the wall could use some Lysol to get rid of the mold. Overall our stay was pleasant. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon. Istanbul was our place to explore the city, see the sights, and simply have a comfortable hotel in a convenient location knowing we wouldn't spend much time in it. Lush was all that, but no extra frills. The price was perfect at 100 Euro/night. We stayed on the 6th (top) floor overlooking... More
