I'm a female who was travelling alone. PLEASE READ. Hotel was clean and that's the only good thing about it. It's located two roads off Istiklal Ave., good location, in theory, but it can be a bit creepy at night. The manager is a pervert. He asked whether he could accompany me to dinner on the first night I got... More

Before coming to the actual hotel itself, I have to say it has a fabulous location! In Beyoglu, just round the corner from Istiklal Cadessi, Taksim Square and the metro! For this, one can forgive the hotel for being very small - but it was neat and clean and I was happy to find spotless linen on the bed. We... More

Staff was very irritated and rude. They were very unprofessional!!! We arrived at night and there were strange people at the lobby who were not hotel guest or personnel. We felt unsafe. We had booked the room by internet with my credit card, but when we arrived the recepcionist told us that we had to pay cash, because they didn´t... More

Surprised to find so many people writing that they had a bad experience at this hotel since mine was v good. I stayed with my husband on our honeymoon here and had a great time. Yes the rooms are small but most hotels in Istanbul have small rooms and at least they have an elevator. I visited istanbul again recently... More

The hotel is actually very small, even tiny. In the elevator just 2 people can fit. Rooms are normal, but also very small. A big plus - proximity to the city center. PS The breakfasts are very light but you can eat apples any time you want)

The hotel is in a good location. That's the only good thing I can say! I don't think this is a selling point as there are many other hotels also in good locations and hopefully with better customer service. The man that checked is in was rude and unhelpful! And when we wanted to add another night to our stay... More

Hotels is nice, clean, perfect location if you want to stay in Beyoglu. Rooms are small but clean and nice, staff is ok, breakfast could be better, but it's ok. Very good price for such a nice hotel just in 2 min. from Istiklal. I would come back there...

Strategic location but bad in all respects - Cozy Suites in Istanbul (Turkey) is a location that the pictures you find on the internet showing various booking this hotel comfortable and clean but unfortunately the reality is another. This hotel is located on a side street in front of a school where you feel a crazy mess. Apparently the Forbes... 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.
