I'zaz Lofts

Reviewed June 25, 2013

We organised to stay at the lofts in our first and last week of our honeymoon in turkey. After a long flight we were met with a wonderful driver in a beautiful car who drove us to the lofts.
Our loft was wonderful, and the bed! The location was so handy. We walked to the other side of Istanbul to see the sites and do touristy things in our first couple of days, and were so glad to not be staying around those areas. Beyoglu is a wonderful mix of a local and touristy feel.
Sadi, the manager helped us with every request we had and was available 24 hours a day for assistance.
Having a security guard outside overnight was also handy when we woke up at 3am due to jetlag. He escorted us to the local shop so we could eat.
We didn't use the top area much, but it was very handy to make cups of tea and coffee in the morning before we ventured out.
Oh and a note for the boys, the barber shop a couple of doors down is awesome and where my new husband spent quite a bit of time!
All in all we HIGHLY recommend this place to people wanting. But extra from their stay, yet keep their independence also.

this small hotel is great. It is in a very central location, so you can go almost anywhere by foot/ The rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are modern and comfortable. It is great for a small party of friends. We were 4, took over 2 of the 3 rooms, and enjoyed ourselves as if we had a home in Istanbul. The market nearby provided snacks, and we spent a pleasant time on the roof hall, listening to music, having a drink, munching on fruit and other goodies. The staff was most helpful and pleasant. The only possible problem is some noise, owing to the location, but, hey, this is Istanbul.

Room Tip: I prefer the top room, which is large and has a lot of light, but there is no elevator.

I rented three lofts for our travelling party in May. We loved the roof top deck, which is fully equipped for a light snack and the updated, contemporary rooms. The location was excellent for seeing the sights and the neighbourhood is very exciting with shops, restaurants, bakeries...everything you need! The housekeeper was very accommodating and did our laundry at no charge. Sadie,the hotel owner was available and attentive, offering suggestions for restaurants and attractions.
For a unique experience try the barber shop a few doors away for a shave, massage,wax..you name it!

Room Tip: Room 2 has a window seat and room 3 has a balcony.

This was our second visit to Istanbul. Our first visit was about five years ago, for only a short time. Then, we stayed in Sultanahmet. Since our stay was so brief, we concentrated on visiting the old town and its highlights--Haghia Sophia, Sultanahmet Mosque, the Grand Bazaar. At night, we went into Beyoglu to hear music, and knew that when we returned, we would stay in Istanbul longer and stay in this vibrant, modern district.

We did return in May for 8 days and Izaz was a perfect basecamp for us. The design is very handsome without being sterile, the room an ideal size for my partner and I, and the kitchen roof terrace was a great amenity. We are not fans of big hotels--they lend a somewhat generic feel to a vacation--and we like to be able to occasionally make our own meals. We considered renting an apartment, but then learned about Izaz. This is a great combination of staying at a small hotel and an apartment.

The kitchen is well-stocked. On days when we didn't want to go to another restaurant, we simply picked up some wine, fresh produce, bread, cheese and olives from a few stores just up the street, settled in upstairs on the terrace, plugged in our ipod, and enjoyed our private terrace meal, overlooking the city.

Izaz's location could not be better--only a few blocks away from Istiklal Caddesi, a main artery to other parts of the city, but tucked away in a relatively quiet alleyway street.

If you want a big hotel experience, Izaz is not for you. However, the amenities of a hotel--reception and information as well as security--are still present. The manager, Sadi, was often right outside the building, and always available for questions and advice. He could not have been more helpful. Even when we came in late from a night out, the security gentleman was around.

I hope to visit Istanbul again soon, and would very much like to stay at Izaz again.

We were a group of 7 and had booked all 4 suits, 3 were great but we had ground floor and found the room very small, no air flow and air condition did not function properly. This place is not wheelchair accessible we were happy to move to a hotel with phone, elevator , air condition, and larger room

Hello, We very much appreciate all feedbacks as it helps us improve the stay of our future guests. However, this review also is a bit concerning since it does not reflect the true condition of our rooms.

- The room that was chosen is our smallest room available at 25 m², hence priced accordingly in comparison to all the other rooms we have, while providing exactly the same amenities. The guests were informed about the size before booking. This is a standard size of a hotel room in Istanbul today.

- Although the room is located on the ground floor, there are two secure 120cm tall windows. Most of our guests love to open these during the day to allow fresh air and enjoy the sights and sounds of the neighborhood.

- Spring maintenance of our air conditioning system had occurred the week before the the guests checked in. Upon receiving this review yesterday, I personally checked the air-conditioning system in the room and have verified it is in a fully functional state.

- Since none of the guests in the party had a psychical condition that prevented them from accessing their rooms, this comment was the most surprising. Located in a renovated antique Greek building, as we mention on our website and in all our emails with guests, we have no elevator in order to preserve the historical integrity of the building. We understand that having no elevator may limit the accessibility for some potential guests.

Even though the guests checked out earlier than booked and moved to another hotel, it is never in our intention to charge our guests for a stay they are not happy with. So, as a good faith gesture, they were not charged for the last night of their stay. Additionally, we provided them a complimentary transfer back to the airport and they mentioned that they will definitely stay with us during their next trip to Istanbul.

The I'zaz Lofts was a perfect experience for our group of Canadian friends. We took over all four rooms and really appreciated the roof top deck/kitchen for breakfast and evening wine and appies.
The housekeeper was extremely thorough and friendly. It was great to have our laundry done! The location of the boutique hotel is perfect....close to Istiklal Caddesi, the tram and the trolley. This is not the place if you expect a North American big hotel experience.

Room Tip: The first floor room is very small and stuffy because you can't open the windows for security re...

Well this hotel was my husbands idea. He alway likes to try new places. I am more of the big hotel girl. It turned out this one time he chose well.
Izaz is a little gem of a hotel. It is just so homey and cute, with its 4 rooms and this little terrace on the roof. It was tulip season in Istanbul, I just love that time of year. In Singapore we do not such a spring like I grew up with. Back to Izaz, Up on the terrace the glassed in room was just perfect as it was still a little brisk outside. I ended setting up shop there in the morning while my husband was at his conference. I just loved watch the city from above.
The rooms are super, much larger than what I would expect from a city hotel, especially a small one. We booked the room with the nook. so nice for reading.
Bye the way the people who work there really add to the comfort of the stay.
Enough said, I am a convert.
