“Lush Hotel Istanbul was a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Was very happy with our stay to Lush hotel. Our room was excellent, we had upgraded to a deluxe and there was plenty of room and it was very quiet. The staff were so helpful, courteous and did everything to make our stay an excellent one. The location of the hotel was perfect, close to Taksim and the nightlife and it was very easy to walk places. There were also plenty of taxis close by and even if you don't speak Turkish everyone knows where Taksim is! They also have a complimentary breakfast which was really good, lots of selection of different foods. I will absolutely stay here again when I come back to Istanbul, and I will be back as its a fantastic city!

Room Tip: Upgrade and try the higher floors.

My wife and I only stayed one night at Lush. However, we were both impressed with the size and comfort of the room. The Lush is just a short walk from the major shopping areas located in and around Taksim Square. We wished we had spent more time here.

It is a very nice hotel.
Well located near Taksim square what is really comfortable :
1) to have a good access to public transport to visit the sites
2) to be able to go out easily at night as the area is full of small pub and club.
We were a little bit disappointed by the room itself, on the pictures the decoration seems to be more modern. But the bed was spacious and everything was very clean.
Hotel staff is helpfull and friendly
Could be a little noisy when there is a show in the club
Breakfast is very good and serve untill 11.00am what is nice when you'd like to sleep late.

We spent 3 nights at the hotel over a weekend. Having read the previous reviews we were worried it was going to be in a box room and we would be kept up all night with the noise from the club. These reviews are a slight over exaggeration. The junior suite was a decent enough room with a clean bathroom. Paris hotel rooms are far smaller! We were on the 4th floor and although we could hear the bar downstairs it definitely didn't keep us up. The saunas were great and clean, and we even used the gym! The treadmill is a little noisy though. The breakfast was a good spread and tasty. Location is perfect! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean comfortable stay in a lively part of Istanbul.

Room Tip: Junior Suite is a decent enough size for a short weekend stay.

Super location, super service - a great option - the only negative is the room size - but everything else makes up for that
Its right next to Taksim square and Istikalai avenue but nicely tucked away so that you are not in the crowds and yet not far away
For your day sightseeing its just a short walk from the funicular to Kabatas where you can take the tramway to Sultanhemet or if you prefer to take the nostalgic tram and take the funicular to Galata even that is a small walk
Dont miss the small alleys around the hotel. Great eating places
Location and service are clearly the selling point of this hotel

Room Tip: We booked deluxe room but the room shown to us was really tiny we asked for another option and were...
