“The Santa Ottoman Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

My stay at the Santa Ottoman Hotel was very good. I had made reservations for the wrong date, but they still accommodated me. The room was very clean and the bathroom had plenty of room. It's a convenient location near Taksim Square, off Istiklal Caddesi. They offered many varied food choices and beverages at breakfast in a spacious eating area. I would stay there again.

Great Choice visiting Istanbul at Taksim.location ideal. Value for your money. Very friendly staff. One of the hotels that you book without hesitation. It might though be up for a minor renovation. Besides this fact the general impression is very positive.

I stayed for three nights at Santa Ottoman. It was overall a pleasant experience. The staff of the hotel is friendly and eager to help. The rooms are clean and have all the basic comforts. its location, very close to the Taksim square, was excellent for the purposes of my trip. The only problem was the noise coming up from the street, but it is extremely difficult to find a quiet street in Beyoglu. Taksim is an especially noisy neighborhood. I would consider staying there again in my next visit to Istanbul.

The hotel has a prime location in the heart of Taksim, where you can find many restaurants&shops
Rooms are very clean, well furnished and has a small kitchenette. Hotel staff is very helpful and most of them can communicate in English reasonably. The hotels offers a free shuttle from airport upon arrival if guest is staying for three nights and a return as well in case of spending six nights.
Breakfast is good, but the variety of the food has to be more, to increase the choices. Finally, I have stayed at the hotel twice, once with my family and the other as a solo traveller, so it is always my first choice when visiting Istanbul. Rooms looking the street are very noisy, so they must add double glass or find a solution, specially that there is a high traffic volume until very late at night & in early in the morning.

Room Tip: You have to select a room in the South side, as the street is very noisy specially early in the morn...

Stayed at the Santa ottoman for a week in April/may 2013. The location is fantastic... Few steps to istiklal street and taksim square and from taksim you can get transportation to anywhere in Istanbul. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The breakfast good. The rooms at the corners are more spacious. Lots Of noise from the bars downstairs but it didn't bother me. If you are a light sleeper then this hotel is not for you. The bed and pillows are comfortable but linen and towels are worn out and stained. Bathroom mouldy. The hotel offered complimentary airport transfer which was great.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner rooms and higher floor as you will be further away from the noise and corner room...

Stayed there from May/4th to May/5th. The room was big enough for just one night (a corner room). Wi-fi connection worked properly. The BIGGEST problem was a big party was happening on the hotel's restaurant, and really high music was playing from 5:00 pm up to, at least, 2:00 am. Planned to sleep a little before going out for a night club, but was unable to do.

Booked thru Booking.com, and the address they provide the guests is not the actual one. This one on the Tripadvisor is the correct one. The hotel is pretty close to the Taksim square, in a parallel street to Istiklal St., close to the French Embassy (for your reference).

The hotel staff has poor english skills.
