I was already pleased with the hotel staff before we even arrived as Hasret, one of the lovely staff members was very helpful in arranging various reservations and recommendations for things to do in the area. The hotel itself is clean and so charmingly decorated, you literally feel like you're at home, it lives up to its name. The location... More

This was quite a wonderful find. We stayed at the Penthouse Suite for 6 nights in June 2016. The rooms were great. My only complaint is that the air conditioning was not sufficient. During hot days, it could not maintain the lower temperature. It was quite warm and uncomfortable. The view from the room was amazing! The location was perfect... More

We adıred the decoration. They've kept the original old bank building and renovated. Old floors, windows elevators really fascinated me. It is a historic location as well. Not too noisy in the street, but within 2 min walking distance you find yourself in the jungle! Bars, restaurants, sea, Galata and Pera. It is nice when you can walk in İstanbul.... More

I've stayed here many times and I love it. It has beautiful and very tasteful decoration, both in the common areas and in the rooms. The staff are excellent- you get the feeling that they genuinely care about your stay and are not just going through the motions. It is close to the Bosphorus, and not far from some of... More

Great location, historical monument, high ceilings, neat&tidy rooms, an ancient elevator from 70s and a very helpful staff. Nice SPA facility and Hammam to get relaxed. Definitely recommend. Not to forget, located in a hip location of Karakoy.

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.
