“Great location, reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The good
-location
-complimentary upgrade to a superior room which was much bigger than a standard room
-friendly staff
-nice bar/coffee shop on the ground floor with great staff

The bad
-Key for the room wouldn't work on two occasions due to 'technical issue'
-Aircon stopped working in the middle of the night, but we were immediately offered another room
-slightly rough finish on the decor
-wanted to give the porter TL5 tip but only had a TL10 note. Said he'd bring change but he didn't

Overall, I would recommend this hotel. It's not cheap, but the location is excellent and the rooms are decent.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly refurbished rooms on the 6th floor

When traveling to a city as metropolitan and rich as Istanbul, Turkey, we often tend to look for hotels that are in the midst of the hustle and bustle of it all. CVK Hotel is the place to stay in Taksim if you want accessibility, comfort and a sensible sense of style. It is not a luxury hotel, yet the service, food, and cleanliness are of the highest standard available. With professional staffs that are more than keen to lend a hand, it will be a great stop if you are up for a proper holiday out in the town.
This hotel however recommended does not include family facilities for children and entertainment as such.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Taksim square!

I have been travelling all over the world lately but haven't come across such a warm, courteous & professional staff. The CVK hotel in Istanbul is not only centrally located but also very lively 24/7! I lost my passport outside the hotel the very first day and was looking for help, it was then the hotel staff came to my rescue. Special thanks to Eren, who took me to the local police station and helped me get a FIR done...without his & hotel's help, I would have faced tremendous difficulties as language is a problem in Istanbul. They even discounted the rates for us since we had to extend our trip in Istanbul by 1 day. Besides the help they extended, they were always there to provide us with the best of facilities and amenities that one may not expect otherwise. Clearly one of the best hotels in the world I have come across!!! Thanks Team CVK once again & Eren and Murat specially!!!!!!!

I don't know what to say and say about the hotel, location, staff, food and many things if i stayed writing and explaining I don't think so if i will find the right words to describe everything, but in a short I can say place is really great it is located in a live area ( 24 hours ) everything you need around you shopping, restaurants, cafes. Breakfast taste very good, Internet has a very good signal. Most thing I love it in this hotel is the staff and services everything in this hotel is just making you to stay more and more and never wanna leave. Special and many thanks to Front office manager Mr. Suleyman and Front desk team many thanks to Fatih Yukselen and Murat Kazan.. My hands wanna write more and more ! .. Last thing I wanna say is CVK hotel is my 1st choice in Istanbul that's because i'm there every time i go to Istanbul and i romanced you CVK TO STAY THERE.. Hanan Neamah.

Room Tip: Any room you can choice is very good because All the rooms are sunny unit noise and quiet .

This place is so amazing. I want to start saying, as a Turkish guy, you really want to stay at this hotel if you are planning on staying in Istanbul. Location is perfect. Istiklal street can be seen through the window right in front of you. You can go out and buy anything anytime. This place is so live 24 hours a day especially on weekend nights.
I work at a hotel in the usa. I am very familiar with what is going on in hotel business. So i can say this hotel has a pretty good management. They dont say no, they are so aware of what a guest can possibly feel and expect at a hotel. Rooms are clean, wireless has a pretty good signal, breakfast is served on the roof floor that has an ISTANBUL view.
Special thanks to General Manager Mr. Edip CELIK, Front Office Manager Mr. Suleyman BOZDEMIR, and front desk team. Fatih TOPDAG, Fatih YUKSELEN, Murat KAZAN, Meltem BOZKURT, Erhan ATAN, Onder GUNACAN, Kaan, Emin, Ahmet.
Istanbul is my place, this hotel is my hotel.
No complaints at all...

Room Tip: Pick a room that has a street view instead of sea view.
