“Excellent Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Stayed in Cartoon Hotel for three nights. Excellent location at Taxim Square very close to the funicular and Istiklal Street. The breakfast spread was very impressive for a hotel of this category. The front office was very helpful and the wifi speed could not be faulted. The only problem was the housekeeping and the fact that they charge for bottled water whereas it is the standard practice for hotels to provide at least one bottle per day and then charge for subsequent usage. But the main irritant was housekeeping, the room was neither vacuumed nor swept for three days, which can easily be rectified by better management. Otherwise would recommend this hotel anytime.

Me and my wife stayed at Cartoon hotel for 5 days. The reception was friendly, they upgraded our room to a suite at the new building. The hotel itself is only 1 minute walk from Taksim Square, excellent location. Breakfast was good, lots of variety, I personally expected less but it was a good surprise. The staff was helpful and we didn't have any problems throughout our stay.

I would recommend this hotel for couples and families alike.

Room Tip: Get a room in the new building away from the street noise.

I stayed a few nights at Cartoon Hotel during a business trip to Istanbul and i found it extremely convenient regarding location, especially if one is taking the Havatas bus from the airport. However my experience was rather controversial. I practically had no proper sleep for two nights because of the loud noise coming from outside. Somebody would just park their car on the street and get the music on, making my room vibrate like a night club at 4am. I also had to complain about a broken shower head which was never fixed leaving me with no proper shower for the whole of my stay. The time I stayed at Cartoon, the hotel was undergoing a renovation and all staircases were resembling a construction site. I guess i should have been notified. My room was well furnished, but i could sense a generally bad smell around the space.

Staff is friendly in general and they kindly accepted me really earlier than check-in time. I found the price of the room ridiculously high for the quality and the service.

We stayed there in March 2014 for a week. Location was very good but noisy. Staff were friendly however most of them couldn't speak English. Breakfast was average and the restaurant located at 9th floor, considering a TINY lift (barely can fit 4 persons),, expect long waiting to go to the restaurant. in couple of rainy days, restaurant got flooded due to glass ceiling being poorly sealed. Room was small and air-conditioning was only heating but not cooling!!!!,, overall way below expectation for 4 starts rated hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is in quiet side of hotel (back of hotel).

It is a nice hotel, one block away from Taksim. Stayed there 2 weeks and breaksfast it was always the same and if the elevator dosen´t work you have to go 9 floors up by the stairs. Wifi was good sometimes. They don´t have a pool or fitness center.
