Through a mix up between the taxi driver and the hotel (beware, it is hard to find!) we ended up at the wrong Stories hotel (there are 3 of them). Our charming host offered either to deliver us to the right one, or an upgrade where we were. We stayed and had a Junior Suite, which was marvellous. This is a boutique hotel right near Istiklal Street and Taksim Square so right in the thick of things. Fortunately it has excellent glazing as it gets very rowdy at night. Fun, bohemian area though, with lots of wonderful hole in the wall bars and restaurants. Junior Suite was huge by Istanbul standards and we really enjoyed our stay. Lovely, helpful front desk, and reasonable prices.
