The worst hotel i have ever been! The people on the reception were very rude. We took a shower in the last day when we had a check out at 12:00. We didn’t have towels and we went to the reception and they didn’t give us . They said on the day of the check out, we can’t give towels. They were very rude! We tried to convince him to give our friend a towel because he was already on the shower, they didn’t agree. Not recommended at all!!!!! والله معامله وسخه من العمال وغرف عتيقه جدا وزباله باخر يوم ما رضي يعطينا مناشف The breakfast is very bad and little ! Everyone is rude in this hotel!

Beginning with the reception they were rude and unrespectful the one who carry the luggage did not let us enter our room until they took money from us. lobby is the cleanest thing in the whole hotel. the room was very old fashion the floor was dirty you cant lay your toes on the floor there was some of blood strain on the pilow they only tidy the bed one day we left the room in the morning and we came at night and we found our room door open the whole day they said its was just a mistake bathroom is very disgusting there were something stuck in the toilet the shower need a manual to know how to use it in addition to the leakage the towels were almost grey and disgusting you can't put them on your body. for the buffet they served the same food no single dish has been changed sometime there was no food no bread either its happened during the buffet time once they served cheese with insects on top even the elevator once stuck in the middle

My friends and I booked a triple room while in Istanbul. Thrilled that the extra bed wasn’t a smaller one but the same as the other two beds. The room had enough space for the three of us and our bags. Very polite and helpful staff who spoke English. Hotel was clean. No noise once you close the windows. AC working well. Only a 6 min walk away from Taksim. The only things that disappointed was the breakfast (very limited) and that they don’t offer an iron. This is not the place to stay if you are looking for something upscale/fancy, but it’s perfect if you need a clean, simple, safe place to sleep after a long day of venturing.
