We booked the Conti because we wanted to stay as close to Taksim Square as possible. We were not able to find any hotels online, anywhere near the Taksim, for a reasonable price...so we booked at the Conti. Here are the facts:
-Conti is located in a side street that is semi-residential
-Conti is 2 metro stops away from Taksim square.
-The front desk staff are OK, but not very helpful and their english is very basic
-A previous review mentioned A/C not working....and sure enough, our room A/C did not work...it blew warm air out, in July!. They gave us a fan and appologized.
-Rooms, are very very small. The bed takes most of the room.
So when we went to taksim square I saw a bunch of very nice hotels, that were not listed on travelocity, expedia, or tripadvisor....and they were at the same rate at the Conti!!! We checked-out immediatly and moved to Takim square.
Lesson learned: Look hard online for hotels in Taksim square and you will find something at the same rate, if not better, as the Conti.
