Great location right on Taksim Square. This is the hotel's chief asset. The rooms were fine; quite small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good, but not exceptional. Overall, this is a good choice for value and location. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms are small, and some don't have much natural light at all.

The location of the hotel is perfect...easy to go everywhere. ..

We stayed as family with 2 kids and got extra bed in our room and the room was spacious and great. ..It was the executive new room....

Breakfast is very good according to the price we paid in a hotel in the heart of the city and with that quality. .

I stayed in a room on 1st floor back area and was no noise. ... The beds were comfortable ...

I would stay again in it if have the chance again...

Long trip to get here, bad traffic and the site map took us to the right area but not the right place, took some finding, so by 8pm tired and may be a bit grumpy, checked in and the guy took our car some where (parking is not on site and must be paid for) got to the room, didn't quite look like the picture on the internet and the beds were single not a double, ok room but the bathroom was yucky, the floor was covered in water, the shower was full of black mould! I called the reception and asked to move room, a guy came to the room to look and couldn't understand why we weren't happy with the shower being full of black mould, another guy turned up and was much more helpful, he took us to a different room, this one smelled damp and the bathroom ceiling was wet through, 3rd room, was fine, still single beds, but clean and a bit more like the pictures. The next morning I didn't hold out much hope for breakfast, but it was actually really nice, good selection, great view, a cheeky seagull on the air con unit looking in. Great location right on Taksin square, right by the metro, restaurants and bars, so all turned out great in the end. The cartoon theme is a bit creepy and I had to cover the Mickey mouse picture in the bedroom as it was freaky!

It's at a great location and quite reasonable.
The staff is friendly & helpful. The breakfast very good.
However the name and the themed corridors of cartoon characters really are most incongruous with a 3 star rating - a bit of a put-off......
Would surely recommend it if you're the typical tourist just needing a good nights sleep & wholesome breakfast.
