I stayed here for 6 nights with my mum and I do not have one bad thing to say about this hotel. The staff were extremely lovely and went above and beyond to cater to all our needs. Breakfast was great, many options to choose from at the buffet but you can also order hot breakfast (e.g pancakes, omelettes etc)....

We love the room which is very new, nicely decorated, trendy with comfortable bed, but most rooms has no view and no balcony. At night, the air conditioning could not be triggered and we opened up the window which is nice with fresh air. Lobby and restaurants are nicely decorated, quaint and European. The location is like at the centre...

Where do I begin? Rooftop terrace with views to die for, luxurious decor, hearty and wholesome breakfast, blah, blah, blah - basically things you'd expect from a 5-star hotel, they delivered them beyond satisfaction. And oh, location was superb, it was central to almost everywhere, with the tram, tunel (you got to try this) and buses just round the neighborhood....

I have never written a negative review like this for a place of business as I believe that everyone has off days but this place was consistently awful.

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.
