“Impressive service and great hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

One of the best hotels in Istanbul. I arrived the hotel early morning and the staff were kind enough to check me in early and to offer me a very generous room upgrade.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks and appreciations to Mr. Faith Topdag for his help and dedication. He makes our trip to Istanbul much easier and more fun.

I will definitely stay here soon.

If you prefer the newer part of Istanbul, this hotel's location is (for me) one of the best, just of Taksim square and Istiklal street.
First impression of the hotel was strange... I came through the entrance door and saw metal detector... the next shock was that they have an escalator to the the reception on the first floor, but they did not work, so I walked on this escalator and felt stupid... like "what the hell this is..."
They have an elevator as well, but I found out that next day...

Rooms are small (like everywhere at Taksim area), but nice and well equiped, well maintained. Breakfast is OK, but a bit poor... Staff helpfull, polite, but not really kind.

Very average, but not dissapointing.

Another strange thing is their policy about "tea, coffee and water"... they are complimentary "for once during accomodation"... very well (but strange), but when you drink yor first coffe, which is free, they do not bringe new one... and I was absolutelly ready to pay for it... :(

Ask about room location if you do mind noise - l looked to construction site and Turkish workers work till midnight and star very early as well... could be noisy....

Thanks to the staff who are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very cozy and a bit small but the service is great, the rooms are also very clean. The breakfast is great too.

The hotel is located in the heart of Taksim Square which is very accessible to a lot of places, you can walk to shopping stores, Restaurants and Bars.

We loved and enjoyed the place. The pictures represent the hotel unlike most hotels in Istanbul that put nice pictures but in reality is something else.

Very modern and clean. We stayed in one of the rooms facing the square with a small balcony. The whole stay was just great. The hotel staff were very accommodating and upon request they gave us bath robes and slippers. We went sightseeing very easy by public transportation right across the street. The breakfast was good enough (not great) but we loved sitting on top of the hotel looking at the view of the Bosporus.
Upon our departure to the airport they offered us a limo ride which we took and it was the icing on the cake. Very new car, comfortable ride and very professional driver with the price of a taxi ride.
Only advice if you are looking for traditional Turkish hotel this is not it, it's very modern and European, but I didn't mind so I would go back

Room Tip: People complain of noise, but we had no noise whatsoever in our front facing room with the door clos...

Me my mom and sister have decided to stay in the hotel because if it's location, unfortunately our experience overall is a disaster! Hotel staff were unfriendly not helpful at all, they only vacuum the carpet, the never changed the towels or the sheets! I have never ever stayed in a hotel were you ask for an adapter 3 times and never get it! The rooms are extremely small don't be tempted when you see the rooms on the website! They are tiny! And I stayed at the deluxe plus room.. overall me and my family will never return to CVK hotel

The hotel is perfectly situated byTaksim square. It is not too exclusive, but very clean and friendly. The diningroom was on top floor with a marvellous view over the Bosphorus. The staff was very friendly and most helpful. I remember Fatih, who helped us a lot.
Our room was very small and had no view from the room, but you get what you pay for:) Next time I will order a room facing Taksim.
I will definitely stay at the same hotel.
A new finicular took you from Taksim square down to the trams. Cheap and conveniant. Then you had acess to the interesting parts of Istanbul. Much better than the taxis.

Room Tip: Ask for good view
