“Noisy, smelly, dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The bathroom wasn't clean, the room was dark and smelled like an ashtray (staff told us there are just 3 or 4 non-smoking rooms) and it was hard to get some rest because of noisy neighbours, clubs and cars in front of the window. And don't expect the staff to be friendly...
The breakfast was okay. But we would never stay there again.

Location is ideal! near subway and to istiklal and all the bars and restaurants. Stuff was very friendly and the room was rather well equiped. Very nice breakfast buffet with lots of turkish flavor! Drawback: it gets rather loud on the area on saturday- friday nights.

Every time I stay in Istanbul, I prefer this hotel. The location is absolutely perfect, just a few meters from the famous Istiklal street, you have a huge choice of restaurants, cafes and bars just a few steps from the hotel, although there is also a lovely pub/bar (Junction) in the hotel. The family run hotel is always keen to improve their services, most of the rooms have been renovated recently, although the few "old" standard rooms are also very clean and have the same outfit than the "deluxe" rooms. The breakfast offers a good choice of cold and warm meals and the coffee is tasty. I can only recommend this hotel to everybody as a perfect spot for sightseeing and also business trips, as you will find yourself in the most popular area of Istanbul, with many places of interest, amusement and shopping nearby. The historical half island with the major sights as Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and St. Sophia are within easy reach. My last stay was in September 2012 and I am looking forward to be staying there again this week in January 13.

This hotel is owned and managed by a brother and sister and I congrats them for such an amazing roll of business! They provide an international big hotels service and you won't feel like its a normal family owned business plus they have a great restaurant and lounge with an incredible atmosphere and the location of the hotel is just at the middle of the best area in the city!

It is a nice place with a luxurious atmosphere. The breakfast is excellent and the staff is very kind. Its position is great next to the main pavement (Peran or istiklal caddesi) and near at Taxim square.
On the other hand, the bed was too small for me (~1.8m).
