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

Staying at the Lush Taksim Istanbul is a whole experience. You have the sensation that you are living in a stage. The rooms are perfectly decorated. They gave us a tiny room, well decorated, but so tiny compared with the rooms showing at the site. Anyways, the problem was the noise. The have a kind of "Discotheque" in the same... More

It was very noisy! I had the worst night in Istanbul, close to the taksim area. The street is full of car horns until 5am and there even is a disco with their loud music all night long. The funny part is that our room was in the back of the hotel, not even adjacent to the street! I wonder... More

I stayed there very recently, well what can I say, it was not a pleasant experience at all. I wanted a Twin Room but there was none available, I then got "Upgraded to a Deluxe Room" for free, it resembled a standard room, there was absolutely nothing deluxe about it!!! The room was very small. Before I made the booking... More
