My second visit; this time for dinner. Had meatballs that they served with potato chips (fries to most of us) and grilled veggies.

It was a nice experience and our family enjoyed staying here. The hotel is not flashy at entrance or giving a top level hotel image. However its a very convinient place for a short stay. We stayed in 801 room and quite spacy & comfortable. Breakfast was good enough but no wide range of selection due lack of space. The... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
