It was my 4th stay in LaresPark hotel. And it’s still my favorite hotel in Istanbul.
First of all I like the location – 3 min from Taksim square and metro station, 30 min from Ataturk airport by taxy (apr 45-50 lira), 5 minutes from famous shopping Istiklal street, 15 min from Dolmabahce Palace, a lot of restaurants, exchange offices, supermarkets around, safe surrounding, no traffic close by.
The hotel is very well decorated and good maintained; rooms are big and clean, free water and kettle with welcome tea and coffee in every room. Staff is very polite and helpful.
The only complain about room – new bell door system is too loud and you can hear someone bell next door, in day time it’s ok, but at night time it’s quite irritating.
Breakfast is big, fresh, various and tasty but it’s a little poorer comparing with 3 years ago. There is no choice of meat at all – one type of sausage – that’s all.
Spa, pool and gym are wonderful.
Portofino Stage Restaurant on the first floor with terrace is a very good one. Every my visit to Istanbul I have dinner there and I was never disappointed – good service and nice tasty food. The bonus - if you stay in LaresPark they give you 10 % discount in restaurant.
When you ask reception to call taxy, ask them to tell driver to not “circling” and use meter – and you will never be upset with taxy price.
I would highly recommend the hotel and for sure will stay there again.
