Stayed here in September last year with my mother. Booked the Mia Pera hotel which was then taken over by the room mate group.
Right off the pedestrian zone Istiklal Cadd. My mother and I enjoyed walking to the Tünel and looking through shop windows, stopping by restaurants and Lokum shops and watching the ice cream sellers with their performances.
You can also walk to taksim square or walk all the way down pass Galata towers and across
The bridge, which we did one evening.
Modern and very comfortable. My mother requested a kettle in her room which they were very happy to loan her during our stay. There was an issue with her cupboard door which was fixed immediately
Breakfast downstairs was ample, fresh and delicious.
There is a rooftop bar with lovely views. Shame there wasn't a menu or even staff attending to us. We finally got some pots of tea once we asked. Would have been nice to have some light snacks in the evening.
Gym is a decent size. Unfortunately the staff there seem only interested in selling massage packages. Any other requests for towels or any other information are met with indifference
Apart from the gym staff, everyone else was lovely especially the front desk staff. Very friendly and eager to share their tips of things to see or eat. We spent some time chatting to them.
