We took 3 rooms. One of them was very spacious and one of them was at the 5th floor which was hot and the cooler didn't work... Considering all of these things it was a fine and nice hotel and had delicious breakfast..😋😋 The location was good. And it was bear to the taghsim square..😊

I didn't like the hotel at all. First of all, the staff was unfriendly, unkind and unhelpful! I could hardly understand some of them because they did not know how to speak the English language! And there was no room for my luggage and the bathroom was too small!

We stayed for 3 nights , breakfast is good . Pool is small. It's better to be in rooms upper floors. In some rooms view is very bad. Prices are not bad. Location might be the best positive point , just a few minutes to Taksim sq.

We were there for the Easter. Location is great. Plased at a safe protected and quite district right next to taksim square and the pedestrian street of Istiklal among shops restaurants and others hotels. Further than the location it is a mediocre hotel... more likely a 2* star hotel...and a little expensive for what it offers. The area of the... More

Staff was unfriendly at all especially the recipiention staff. Also, our group leader asked for an early breakfast to be served next morning as we were going to Bursa tour. Next day we found that no breakfast was ready for us and the staff was sleeping and we had to leave with empty stomachs.

Points - : 1)there is any bottle of water in the rooms (it was the first time that I see in the 4* hotel! 2)there isn't any kettle, tea, Nescafe, Iron, in the rooms. 3)the rooms are small. 4 )the pool 'water is very cold (in November ) Points + 1)it's near the taksim square....

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.
