It is only a 3-star hotel so you cannot ask for much. The rooms are not big and floors are small. The great thing about the hotel is the location near Taksim square. Breakfast is fine. Staff were friendly but I faced some tiny problems with service. I had trouble with my room key more than once and had to recheck with reception. Same with wifi. Also the tv controller wasn't working and I formed the staff twice. Overall, if you are looking for low-budget hotel close to Taksim, this could be your best choice especially if you are not going to stay much in the hotel.

Yes, its not the best, breakfast is poor, sometimes water and wifi stop working, but rooms are clean and nice, stuff is more than average and the location - amazing! It's almost in the heart of Taksim square, very close to everything and if that's the most important thing for you - you'd better to book it. Don't make mistake, there are two almost similar name hotels: Taksim star hotel and star hotel Taksim, the other one is better, so read carefully!

Hotel was perfectly placed near Taksim square and the metro and Site seeing bus tour, shops and cafes. However, the hotel itself was not that comfortable. 3 of us stayed there and the room was tiny with 3 single beds and tiny bathroom. Bedding had stains on it and my towel was that worn it had long holes in it. TV in the room only had one channel working which was in Turkish and so no choice. It is showing its age and requires modernisation. Breakfast was okay. Staff spoke very little English which made it a little more challenging considering it is the hospitality trade that they work in. Overall, it was just okay as we stayed 2 nights and spent the days and nights exploring Istanbul which was beautiful and vibrant.

If you want a nice big room with lovely views this is definitely not the place for you. The cleaner came in every day and did clean and brought clean towels but there were some very suspect stains on the bed clothes which we did not like the look of but I think they were just stained rather than dirty ( Well we hoped so anyway ). The breakfast was continental so was mostly bread, cheese, olives and tomatoes etc. Not great but ok for what we paid. In summary if your looking for a place to rest your head in Istanbul and want somewhere near Taksim Square this place could perfect for you. I would recommend this place for a budget city break but certainly not a romantic holiday for two but all that said it was good value for money.
