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.

Stayed there for 6 nights. Overall a decent experience. Very nice location. Breakfast is good with very helpful staff. The only concern we had with this hotel was the reception (except the manager, I believe, she was sweet) rest of the reception staff was rude, did not really care for your requests, and always too busy chatting with each other rather than dealing with the guests) Reception really needs to change the staff. Not good at all. Other than that a very decent stay. We had a connecting room for our kids and we all enjoyed. Fast internet as well.

Hotel's Favorite
I checked in late but was lucky enough to be upgraded to a Junior Suite. I stayed at a 5 star hotel in Karakoy for the first 4 days of my stay in Istanbul and then stayed at Barcelo for the remaining 3 days. I wish I had booked Barcelo for the full stay. This place is a proper 5-star hotel and it is incredible value for money. Although I did not manage to use the gym, I did go and check it out. It has incredible views of Istanbul since it is on the top floor. All the hotel staff I interacted with spoke English well. The hotel is also a 2min walk from Taksim square and 3 mins away from Istiklal street so you get the convenience of being close to it, but you don't have to deal with the noise and all the foot traffic. The room I stayed is was spacious, clean and modern. The hotel is quite new, so all the facilities are in great condition. Breakfast was amazing, they have so many things to choose from. The breakfast staff were incredibly friendly and efficient. If I come to Istanbul again, I will make sure to make a booking here!

Good location if you want to be close to Taksim square. Airport bus service very close and convenient. Good value for money. Service is not good. Takes a long time and multiple requests to get simple requests attended to. Housekeeping could do a better job cleaning the rooms on a daily basis.

We selected the hotel to celebrate a special night with friends and the personal help us to organize everything, Including all our special requirements for the room and the Coctail night celebration. They really care about the details and everything was very on point till the end, I can say that it was even more beautiful and fun than what we expected. Thanks for everything Barcelo and especially thanks to Mr. Martin for all the organization!
