“Small Boutique hotel!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The hotel is located in the heart of Taksim - many shopping, restaurants and bars. The hotel is small and excellent deco throughout hotel - very contemporary. The room was excellent and bed was so comfortable. Very clean. Turkish breakfast was lovely. There is short walking to transport - underpass train it will take you everywhere you want to visit. Sultanahmet-Old City is MUST to visit, is full of historical sights. My friend and I really enjoyed stay in this hotel and Istanbul.

We didn't stay at this hotel but the front desk staff helped us out with very friendly service and good English. The hotel looks clean and is conveniently located very close to Istiklal Ave so great location.

The hotel is located in the centre of taksim. The hotel is tiny but comfortable and very good designed...i think it is new...the staff is very good and helpful,they even let us chech in earlier, then it was officially written when we booked, they let us check in immediately we arrived.the only problem is that the location is very noisy...there is a club in front of the hotel on 4th floor, so you can hardly sleep at night.

its a small hotel , clean, with comfortable rooms and bathroom, recently constructed, simple continental breakfast, with very friendly staff. you feel home and you stay only 50 meters from the main pedestrian street of Instabul. all restaurants, shops, cafe, metro are next to you. The only thing you have to know is that it is difficult to sleep earlier than 2 o' clock at night, during Friday and Saturday, as a club that is opposite to the hotel has very loud music and you can enjoy it from your bed, even if you have your window shutted. But you are in Instabul. You don't go to sleep early. there are so many things to do and see.....

Room Tip: prefer rooms in the back, in order to reduce the noise of the club.

We stayed for 4 nights in Istanbul. This hotel has a very good location and was clean. The rooms were an ok size - basically a standard sized room. But this section of the city sleeps little - and wherever you stay it will be noisy even with the best sound proofing due to the bass coming from nearby bars and clubs.

The staff were pleasant, however I would take with a pinch of salt their recommendations of things to do. The most expensive options were generally the first given. Istanbul is one city where it pays to do a little forward planning. I found that for a product or service in the tourist region was generally 4-5 times the amount as outside, which is quite a lot if you compare to other cities which is generally 2-3 times. I recommend asking about the price of the food before sitting down to eat, look at options for travel (e.g Trip to the Princes Islands. The tour operator will try to charge 65 Euros when you can arrange your own ferry for 4Euros. Even with the extras – you will not spend more than 20 Euros. Just wandering an extra 1-2 streets, you will be surprised how much the cost reduces on take home trinkets.

Also something that wasn't very well advertised within the hotel or on their sites - is airport transfers. You will be told about the 35 Euro shared shuttle as the most reasonable offer, when there is a bus service called Havatas that is 10 TL (4 Euro) that starts or ends at Taksim Square ( a very short walk from the hotel). The bus service is a straight run for 40-60 minutes. Is the same price as the train / tram links - however without the stairs which is great when you have luggage.

Room Tip: I think you can request a larger room higher up away from the street if you want to sleep soundly be...

The Collage Taksim is located right in the center near to Taksim Square and the pedestrian zone with the historic tram. The rooms are very nice with a nice bathroom. There are many restaurants and bars in that area therefore you have noise the whole night (which is not a problem considering the location and the existence of noise-blocking windows). What is in fact a problem is a discoteque which entertained us with techno music / bass until 3 a.m. - no sleep was possible until this time. This might be only the case at the weekend. The breakfast was ok but with very limited selection and not arranged nicely.

Room Tip: Only go there if you are planning to go out in the evening.

Just returned from four nights stay at Collage Taksim and found it to be more than adequate. The room was excellent and the shower in the bathroom superb. Great location if you are arriving from either of the two airports that serve Istanbul as it is only a five minute walk from the airport shuttle stop.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front can be noisy on Friday and Saturday nights.
