The hotel is good, stayed here quite some times, standard. What makes it recommendable is the location and the price, combined with standard quality.
They forgot to clean my room, not a disaster, but probably the organization could be imporved. The renovation realized made it anyhow a bit more modern.

Good Hotel, excellent location, walkable distance from Taksim Square and Istiqlal street. Nice and clean!
But the room I had booked from Agoda they gave me the smaller room :( even after complaining to the reception they didn't do anything! I paid extra amount for the bigger room almost double!
My colleague got the bigger room in the same price. May they were over booked! or??
But the Hotel is good!

Room Tip: Make sure they give you the room you booked!

This hotel is located in a very nice vicinity, with Istiklal Street just 1 minute walk & Taksim Square 2 minutes walk away. BUT I think that all istanbul hotel stars are not really worth as they have.For this hotel i think you have to expect 3star BUT everything was good.Servis,Breakfast,Cleaning and all the things was acceptable.If you are are easy on choice i say it is not bad choice

Room Tip: Stay at toppest floor

This hotel is located in a very nice vicinity, with Istiklal Street just 1 minute walk & Taksim Square 2 minutes walk away. Aswell you have lot of stores for daily requirements and restaurants just a minute walk away. Location is simply perfect. About the hotel & it's staff. They are really helpful and good. We checked in late night at 3 am & they were very welcoming, although there was some doubt about the number of persons the room was booked for, myself had booked for 2 persons 1 room, anyways until morning they gave us single room and in the morning after checking there system and confirming they shifted us to a double room which was much bigger. The rooms are clean and well maintained as well the washrooms are clean. The breakfast buffet is ok. The spread for breakfast buffet is done very stingy, even though the place is full of people the spread is such that they are unable to serve even half there guests & the rest eat egg's or whatever remaining. The view from the rooftop is really refreshing. One should not neglect this hotel cause of the breakfast buffet as this is not the criteria. All in all a nice family hotel.

This was an absolute nightmare. We booked in for three days two nights. Was recommended by the travel agents (got a few things to tell her!)
Location was nice but not worth staying too close to the main high street of taksim. The nights were extremely noisy and the double glazed window did not meet let alone close to lock! We not only heard the crowded noise, taxis disrespectful car horns all hours of the morning but it got cold at night from the draft. Oh and there was a nasty smell now and again that I really could work out where it came from.
The hotel rooms were surprisedly bigger then I had expected. We stayed on the seventh floor rooms. Tv had only two channels available to watch. Mini bar had two cans of coke opened and half empty left in there to greet us! The bathroom looked nice but there was head hair ........ hair stuck to the floor as the cleaners didn't Hoover to the floors just mopped with a dirty mop and left it. The shower clogged and flooded the floor on our second morning, so we had to use all our towels on the floor! They didn't get changed on my last day as they must have assumed I was going to leave without!
The last night was there was a birthday party up in its own Resturant that was very inconsiderate to all the other guest that had retired to their rooms by 8pm like us! Loud music, dancing is expected at a party but I don't know why on earth the ladies were scream???? Mattresses are NOT memory foam as stated on the web site! Carpets are filthy! Furniture have NOT been wiped since fitting.
Breakfast was a disappointment dispite it's beautiful view. Soup was cold! Cheese were sour and the waiters were very miserable!!!
The only nice thing about this hotel was the last guys on reception. They were very helpful on keeping our luggage safe till we parted the hotel to fly home.
Would Never return and I Do not recommend this to any friends,family or TripAdviser members.
