Great stay, clean and quart place to stay in the middle of Istanbul. The only concern is street noise but that’s I guess common for a big city. Breakfast is great and worthy of getting up @7am. Rain shower with marble finish exceeds expectations.

A very nice and clean hotel in the heart of Taksim. I would recommend it. The service is beautiful, especially the room service with SUZAN. It was excellent in dealing and the service it provided. I stayed in the hotel for about 10 days and enjoyed the stay. Thank you, the hotel management, and thank you SUZAN

This place seriously needs to up their game when it comes to vegan options. In this day in age more people are becoming plant based. I’ve been skipping breakfast because I’m tired of fruit and bread. The chef was kind enough to make me steamed vegetables for breakfast, but that honestly is a terrible alternative for someone plant based (who the hell wants to eat steamed broccoli for breakfast?). Seriously get with the times.
