“Review of the stay at this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Excellent accommodation and fantastic service. Staff always responded with a smile were very courteous and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well equipped, comfortable beds. Food (breakfast) which was included in the price was served both out on the terrace and inside the restaurant, had numerous variety of good quality.
Well equipped gym. with a fairly reasonable swimming pool, good Turkish bath, steam room, sauna as well as facilities for various massages and aroma therapy.
Location is good if you are prepared for a short but uphill walk on the way to centre, Istiqlal and Taksim which is fairly close. if you are not prepared to walk it is only about 5 TL (about 3 $) by taxi

First of all its a 15 minutes walk from taksom square which is not bad. The problem with this location Is that it is surrounded by c class buildings, shops and auto repair garages. So even if you take a street view room you still loose.
The staff is polite and helpfull if a little slow the only problem i faced was that thier english is not fleunt. I had to repeat sone of my aimple requests twice.
The facilities are ok and so is the cleanliness.

A good enough 4 star hotel near Taksim square.

The location (I mean neighborhood) is not that promising. The front desk guys were nice and helpful. They upgraded one of our rooms to a superior. The room was very good but no nice views. I was not satisfied with the breakfast (as it is enormously important to me:)).
I think it really worth its price

Room Tip: - The breakfast does not worth its price - The reception arranged my early check-in nicely

Admittedly it's not in the best street, but it's not all that bad. It's just a short walk to Taksim square and we had a great time exploring the city on foot. You have to climb up a very steep hill to get to the major thoroughfare, so it's not something you would want to do a few times a day. We made it a point to just go out once in the morning and stay out all day, coming back only after dinner. It's an amazing city, so you wouldn't feel like rushing back to the hotel. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable and staff were friendly and polite. We couldn't use the pool as it had a stupid policy that said even men have to wear swim caps. We refused to buy swim caps from them as a matter of principle.

Room Tip: The best you can do is get a room that faces the street. There are some rooms looking straight into...

This is a beautiful, new, comfortable hotel with fine amenities, except it it is in a horrible location. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom is large and well-appointed, and the staff is very accommodating. The main restaurant is on the pricey side; the secondary resurant is more akin to a pizzeria. The hotel's location on a street with numerous car repair/mechanic shops, however, leaves something to be desired, and the subway is an uphill walk of about 1/4 mile

From the moment i checked in, everything was so perfect. The staff was very helpful, especially MENEKSE at the Reception, PINAR in the Lounge who really helped us with all our requests and IREM (The concierge, very much handsome:), he can really schedule for you a full vacation). Not to forget the bellboy who escorted us to the room was also of excellent knowledge.
I was upgraded to a superior room with an access to the club lounge, since it was my wedding anniversary. The room is quiet spacious and well equipped. The AC was well functioning. I only couldn't use the internet on my mobile although it was free wifi connection all over the place.
The staff was very professional in handling the requests, smiling at all times and really very helpful.
We didn't spend too much time at the hotel, since we were really busy with the shopping at that period and visiting what we could in Istanbul.
The hotel location is great since it is walking distance to Taksim street where you can go for sure on daily basis and spend quite of your time there and its location helps you to go wherever you want.
Talking about Istanbul, i think i still need to spend one more week to do the list i was given from Beirut.It is just amazing. I loved it. We visited lots of places such as Istiklal street, taksim, Princess Island, Grand Bazar, Malls, Dolmabahce, Galata tour, Istanbul Aquarium, Bosfor, Eminonu Bazar, Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia (Amazing) and there are lots of great and clean parks to visit.
For sure Istanbul and Crowne plaza - Harbiye will be my destination for my next vacation.

Crowne plaza . New in town . Property adjacent to many car repair shops. On a rundown street. But close to the city centr and by can to most destinations . Language could be a problem with the receptions and concierge . Rooms are pretty neat . And modern . However the rooms window directly opened into the opposite room . The restaurant on the ground floor was clean basic . Again those who waited on us had difficulty communicating with us . Room tarrifs were pricey too.
