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.

We stayed at the Lush Hotel Taksim for 10 days and found it to be a perfect hotel for our needs. The hotel staff is very helpful and courteous. The hotel is exceptionally clean and our room was modern, well appointed, and quiet. Each of the rooms has a different decor. We enjoyed the extensive breakfast each morning in the... More

When I saw the pictures of the hotel, I was amazed! However, pictures can definetely sell something differente. The hotel is not bad, but you shouldn't go with the expectations so high; or you'll get disappointed. Cleaning is extremely good, the shower is perfect. In the room where I spent all the nights was kinda of "hidden", so I heard... More

Very central for Taxim and surrounding areas. The rooms are all individual and well apportioned for a city hotel. The outdoor eating area is an unexpected surprise. Food is basic but with so many restaurants that is unimportant. Small gym and sauna but adequate.

We were in Iatanbul for work, and stayed in Lush Hotel for 4 nights. I cannot fault the staff - all were friendly, helpful and volunteered advice eg how much taxi fares should cost (I am wary of being scammed!). The hotel room - we were upgraded at no extra cost and the room size was generous. The en-suite was... More

I had another fantastic stay at Lush. The staff treated me as if I was part of the family. Again, they were extremely helpful with any information I needed and they went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. I start to feel at home in Istanbul and the staff at Lush have had a lot to do... More

Stayed for 3 nights with a group of girls friends and I thought the hotel was very convenient, nicely designed, clean and comfortable. Maybe the reception area let it down slightly. I had a twin room on the 5th floor which was a good size and nice and quiet. A couple of people found the rooms overlooking the square a... More

LUSH is a great hotel, staff are friendly and genuinely want to help you have a great stay. They arranged my request for champagne and flowers for my wife at breakfast with ease, and they helped us stay informed about a nearby protest demonstration and how it may affect our day. The room was nice, big and quiet at night... More
