“great value and good location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Lovely little hotel a real gem good service friendly staff comfortable rooms. Very good location with an individual style of its own.

Will certainly consider staying there again if in Istanbul. Its nice to find a place such as this as opposed to the standard commercial hotel chains

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I stayed here in March with my partner and the location was ideal (bit noisy) - walking distance to Taksim Square and just off the very busy Istiklal Street. Hotel itself is quite nice clean rooms & a good sized bathroom. The staff are friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast is good and lots of choice. Would definitely return if visiting Istanbul again.

Great position, helpful staff, everthing ok. Very closed to Taksim square, staff is able to communicate in English, supportive in every situation, probabily the best solution so far for the same kind of trip. Good room, happy with wifi connection as well, I cannot remember any specific issue.

I was staying here with my friends from Baku at the end of May 2013. I would say that it is a very good combination of the price and quality. Nice rooms, good daily cleaning and friendly staff. I'd recommend it especially for the people loving Istanbul nightlife as it's location is very close to the Taxim square and Istiklal street.

P.S. Only disadvantage is that my "Milka" chokolate bar from the minibar was cost me 6 liras :) (It's a joke of cource)

The hotel is very near Taksim square, not being necessary taking a cab from havas bus station. The room is comfortable and clean. There is a acustic problem , but is unimportant when compared to the benefits.
