I've been a regular guest at this hotel for some time in large part because of its great location (10 minute walk from Taksim square). It used to be a shabby hotel with little or no personality. The new management and the facelift it recently got have changed things in a significant way. The rooms are still small, but they... More

I truly enjoy my one-night business stay at this hotel situated in charming Cihangir. The location is just great in a beatiful vivid international neighbourhood. Rooms are pretty spacious, well-designed and nicely decorated, only bathrooms may require more technical care. But, in terms of cleanliness, the hotel is perfect. Rooms and common spaces offer free wi fi connection. A diverse... More

A very nice hotel with excellent staff, all very helpful and accommodating. Always someone available who spoke English. Good location, clean and value for money. Only a few issues with the room, which took a little while to sort out – the curtains and heating. Lovely view from the dining areas. Interesting breakfast options, very traditional. I experienced issues regarding... More

We stayed here for about 4 nights, which I should say 4 terrible nights. The room was very dirty - the bed sheets were so dirty and smelly. It's on top of a club/bar, which makes your room so so so noisy (till 3-4am!!). The bathroom was also not comfortable - water licking into the entire bathroom. We tried to... More

I'v been there few years ago, and would always recommend this hotel for a short stay, if you choose to be close to Taksim. It is very good location and neighborhood is very charming. Roms are small but clean. Breakfast is served on the rooftop with spectacular views of the Bosphorus.

A friend who lives in the Taksim section of Istanbul suggested that I stay at Villa Zurich for my two-night stay. I was very pleased. It is a typical older, but clean, small European hotel.

The hotel is quite nice (clean and tasteful); and the staff is friendly and attentive. So why a 1-star review? The club attached to the hotel (Prokopi) played terrible music at ear-blistering volumes, until 4am, even on a weeknight. I have no idea what they were thinking, but don't bother trying to sleep if you stay at the hotel. You... More

Small room but cleaned. Friendly street will a lot of cafes restaurants. Breakfast was....poor, small choice for local people and too bad for westerners! When I asked 1 fried egg I was asked to pay extra, I thought it was a bit mean considering I did not eat the other food. People at reception very nice and helpful.

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.
