i stayed at a hotel recommended by family - very nice location - high end part of istanbul but not very touristy in the Nisantas region of istanbul. it was easy to do shopping and get around. the upside was friendly and helpful staff, the downside was the hotel could do with some refurbishment. The breakfast was quite good.

We stayed weekend in Istanbul at this hotel. Hotel is located in the heart of Nisantas. Excellent location for us. Rooms are very large, clean and has nice decoration. Staff were kind and helpful. My sister had a birthday during the stay and they sent her cake and drinks - very nice thought! Hopefully we will return soon.

This hotel looks a little odd from the outside (looks very small, neon lights and next to a wig shop) but once your are inside it is a nice place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and clean and the price is good for the neighbourhood (nisantasi is an upmarket suburb with the likes... More

Stayed here while attending a conference at nearby Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Oct. 2012. Hotel is small and although room was not spotlessly clean it was of an adequate standard for the rate I paid (75 GBP per night including breakfast and wifi). Breakfast was also quite nice, not a huge selection but lovely stuff and very... More

I loved this hotel. Very close to a Metro station (Osmanbey, only 1 stop away from Taksim), offers comfortable double rooms as their basic accomodation and a generous bathroom, see my pics. Room had air-contioning and a reliable free internet. Security box was provided. Windows were tick enough to isolate the room from outside noise, so I had excellent sleep... More

We stayed there in October with our baby, and we were very much satisfied. The main reason was the amazing hotel manager Serpil Hanim. She made sure that everything was perfect for us. She even watched our son while we were having breakfast! The rest of the stuff was very friendly and professional as well. Location is great, rooms are... More

I cannot say just how surprised we were to find this hidden gem of a hotel. Centrally located and close to osmanbey tube stop, this really is a great modern boutique hotel. It's safe to say that it doesn't exactly have appeal from the outside, lodged between a wig shop and a nail salon, but get up to the very... More

We had an excellent stay at the Riva Boutique hotel. The hotel is located in Nisantasi, an upscale neighborhood in Istanbul full of cafes, boutiques and nice restaurants. The rooms are spacious and modern. Our rate was very competitive (in a city renown for expensive hotels) and included a very decent breakfast. The main advantage of this hotel is the... More
