We had a great experience at Bada Bing! Although the location is not close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque and other museums, we really liked that it was just on the other side of the Galata Bridge and away from the busiest and most touristy areas. It would take about 20 mins to walk to the main touristy area but worth the walk and lots to see along the way. Or you can easily take the train/subway, which is a 5 min walk from Bada Bing. Bada Bing is also very close to the street Taksim, which has lots of shopping and is good for eating and drinking at night.
Staff were GREAT and always answered any questions we had. The owner had a drink with us one night and took us out on the main strip at night! Great value! Comfortable beds with lockers under each bed! Bathrooms were very clean and aesthetic! Nice indoor and outdoor rooftop area with comfortable seating. This area turns into a bar at night. Overall, we were very happy with our stay at Bada Bing and would definitely recommend it to others.
