First of all take a deep breath and scream! You're going to ISTANBUL!!! I did a solo trip for 11 nights in Istanbul and the location I chose couldn't have been better. [July 30-August 10] You are less than 1/2 a mile away from the Funicular (You don't have to walk up and down the street of doom [Siraselviler] that... More

I had quite high expectations before arriving at the hotel. Our room was nothing like any of the rooms on the pictures. It was much smaller, had no view at all (if you looked out the window you saw the wall of the house next to the hotel), had no lamps beside the beds just one very bright one ceiling... More

Service was great. Was upgraded to Cedar class. An ottoman style room. Were willing to help. This isn't my first time at LUSH. The only disadvantage is that if you are wheel chair bound it would be difficult to go up. If you can manage going 5 steps up to the elevator, and going down then do by all means... More

We went for drinks here as we heard the music coming from inside. They had Latin music playing. The people dancing were pros! Really cool vibe. The music stopped at 2 am but the bar stayed open till 3! Will go back. Not sure if the Latin is only on Wednesdays but will be back for it.

I really enjoyed my stay here in July. The location is fantastic - just off Taksim Square it's close to metro and tram stations, easy to get a cab, and right by a decent convenience store. I stayed in room 102 and found it surprisingly large! I was pleased to have a wooden floor, and everything worked well (shower, air... More

I went to Lush hotel with my girlfriend for 3 days. Very nice and clean. Friendly staff. Also great position very near from Taksim plaza. The breakfast is mainly turkish but it's delicious, I recommend it.

I stayed at this Hotel in May 2015 and really enjoyed it. I paid for an upgraded room and was so lucky to get a large room next to the lobby. I really liked that because I was alone that particular weekend I stayed in Istanbul and I felt very safe with the front desk agents (men) out there 24/7... More

The staff here speaks almost no English. They will help you as best as they can. Rooms are small but clean and nice. The Air conditioning works great. LOCATION can not be beat, right near Taksim and 3 minute walk to the subway. The breakfast was good. Now the part that could be improved upon. Do not have your laundry... More

We stayed at Lush Hotel in May, 2015 for six nights. The room we were assigned the first night was facing the street (Siraselviler Cd) and it was very noisy after midnight. We requested the room change next day and they moved us to a new room facing the yard which was very quiet and spacious. The staff spoke good... More

The Lush Hotel is centrally located and a short distance from Taksim Square. Close to shopping, restaurants, take aways and public transport. Rooms are gorgeous, staff friendly and helpful. Not recommended over weekends if you enjoy your sleep though as it becomes very noisy both inside & outside.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
