I recently stayed at this hotel for four nights while spending a few days sightseeing in Istanbul. The hotel is on a narrow street near Taksim Square and the very famous shopping street that is a pedestrian zone. The hotel was very clean, I had a good sized room for the money, it had an elevator, and provided an included buffet breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are all kinds of restaurants, bars, stores, money exchanges, and transportation options very close by. The only negative, and why I give it four stars, is somewhat beyond their control...the noise! From loud music coming from nearby bars, people on the street, and car horns blowing, it was hard falling asleep. On the weekend it's worse. Recommend you bring ear plugs and ask for a room that does not face the street. I was on the top (fifth) floor.
Other than the noise, the hotel was very nice, the staff helpful and the breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the street.

I had a great time in this hotel. It's small but it's perfect If you only need to rest and If you are looking for a good location in this huge city.
Except the breakfast, everything was great: staff, clean room, Cute bathroom, perfect location to hang out or to take taxis, bus, or metro. There are also different ATMs or stores...
Excelente attention.
Breakfast really poor, :-(

Room Tip: Córner suites are large and sunny

Stayed at Santa Ottoman Hotel for 4 nights. The staff were very hospitable and willing to help. they are well connected with local tour operators. Rooms were small but cozy and clean, with good air-con, hot water and a mini bar. They have an elevator.
You will hear music from the local pubs until 3 am, but the same goes for all hotels near Istiklal street, in fact one would chose to stay at Istiklal street mainly for the night life.

I have enjoyed my recent stay in this hotel. Did not expect much out of it but location is perfect, within a minute you are in the middle of Taksim square with easy access to all local amenities. Staff are extremely friendly and very helpful I can't fault them at all. Highly recommended hotel :)
