Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our standard room was really lovely, large and had its own balcony with a great view of Istanbul! The staff were so helpful and nice, very welcoming on our arrival and helped us with our luggage up the very steep street when we left! The hotel is right on Takism square so great transport links and lots of nice restaurants and handy shops near by.

I didn't pre-book and got an excellent deal, although the room for the first two nights was very basic and as small as you could imagine! The other 8 nights were in a very pleasant room which was well serviced and allowed basic cold culinary delights to be brought back from the local 'open all hours' shop 50 metres along the street (minimal cost!) .

The location is very convenient for Taksim Square ( 2 minutes) or 250 metres. However, locals will tell you it's not a good area as it used to be occupied by Romanies, who were moved out by the City Council to elsewhere ( the Streets???) There is some dereliction in the adjacent properties, but the staff were very friendly and very considerate. It should be noted that the suites are very 'gay friendly'!

It's close to Airport coach connections (10TL), which I used when I arrived, but braved the Metro for the return at less than 3TL ( one change)

I'd certainly go back!

Room Tip: Possibly front rooms are more pleasant as the rear ones overlook derelict property and tend to frequ...

Really enjoyed our 2-week stay. Staff were nice and polite and our room was cleaned as often as needed, even when we didn't go out til late.

Airport pick-up service didn't go to plan as the driver wasn't there when we arrived, so we ended up spending over £25 on phone calls arranging where to meet as we'd been told to go outside and couldn't get back in the airport building! It was partly our fault for not being patient and just waiting where the other drivers where, but if the driver had been there when we arrived, the situation would have been avoided. Not sure though how much of the driver being late was the hotel's responsibility, if indeed it was at all.

Overall though, can't fault the place itself. Great location, great price and perfectly nice staff. Experienced no trouble at all as a gay couple and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here 4 days. Very close to Taksim center.

Pros:
1.Friendly staff
2.Prompt response
3.English speaking
4.Hotel cleanliness
5. Available on call

Cons:
When we ask for double bed, instead of attaching two single beds.
Taps should be separate for HOT/Cold water

I will recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with double bed, hot and clod taps

Rooms are clean, comfortable, though not 5 star, but excellent value for the money. Especially when considering the location of the hotel! I was traveling alone so I wanted to stay in a place where there would be people around all the time - to avoid walking via the quiet streets. From here it is just a 'stone's trow' away from the Istikal street where you have shop, cafes, restaurants etc. Going to Sultanahmet to see all historical sights is not a challenge either; metro station is also next to the hotel from where you can take funicular to link to the tram lines (Kabatas).

Staff was really helpful, friendly. I was little bothered about the noises during the night, so ear plugs could be good to have with you, especially if you tent to sleep lightly.

This was my hotel for the Istanbul marathon mainly because it had a kitchenette which I like to have to cook my pre race food.
The location was also important -right by TAKSIM SQUARE and ISTIKAL STREET.
The HAVATAS AIRPORT BUS (10TL) stops around a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
the reception staff spoke English and were very helpful

Room Tip: Nice/larger room 4 at front but slightly smaller but quitter room 3 at rear

The standard double rooms here are very small, I wouldn't recommend them for, say, a week long stay, but for a couple of nights we found it fine as they were clean, had AC, wifi, etc..

Be aware rooms are up narrow staircases, with no lifts, so you need to be fully mobile, also there is no breakfast offered.

The great plus here is you are within a stone's thrown of Taksim, if you want explore around there, and have already done Sultanhamet area.
