“Basic hotel with a great location”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

It's located in the heart of Istanbul , 5 minutes walking distance to all shops, bars and clubs and also there are loads of cafes and restaurants on your doorstep ,
The hotel building is very old and worn out specially the lobby and both elevators but they've renovated the rooms which were clean but super tiny and most of them they dont have any view except the wall of the front building ( we had 4 rooms but only my room had a decent view of the cute front alley)
The highest point for this hotel will go for its great breakfast room : Breakfast is served in a rooftop restaurant with a panoramic view of Istanbul and a good variety of foods

Room Tip: Try to get rooms on upper floors with view .

Staff is very friendly, helpful and hotel is very silent. Rooms are clean and spacious.breakfast is very various and nice terrace. Hotel is very close to shopping centers and very good place to start your day. Buses and tram are very close.nice restaurants and coffeshopes around the hotel. I really wants to come back someday. Internet access is very fast.

Really this is the second time for me in the hotel, all front officers are very friendly, they have a great smile all the day which feel us that we are in our home. the hotel is very clean, very close from Taksim square and Istiqlal street, so it's located in the heart of Istanbul, I strongly recommended, eventually I would like to thank all staff for their great effort to make us happy and special thank from me to Sinan Eker the front office manager for his kind hospitality during my staying their.

Excellent hotel located in the vibrant heart of Istanbul. Nearby to all shops, bars, clubs all located close to Taksim square (5 minutes walking distance). Ideal if you wish to stay nearby the fabulous Tekyon Club for clubbers. If your aim is to visit Istanbul main attractions, within 20 min by Teleferik and Tramway you can reach the old City (Blue Mosque, St Sophia and Topkapi Palace). You also are 5 min away from the Bosphorus Cruises port with the Telepherik.
Around the hotel you got many grocery shops if you wish to buy drinks, you must know that from 9pm it's not possible to buy any alcool in any shop regarding the local law.
Regarding the hotel, rooms are clean, modern and spacious. Staff is helpfull, polite and discreet. Breakfast is located in the roof top with a stunning panoramic view on Istanbul. I've tried many hotels in Istanbul and I must say that the decoration are quite kitch but NOT on this Best Western.
Internet access is complimentary but a bit slow sometimes. Air conditioning fast efficient and silent.

Room Tip: Room 926 on the 10th floor is nice

We stayed here beginning of July 2013. The hotel is centrally located, meaning you are within walking distance of the shops, transport and there are loads of delicious cafes and restaurants on your doorstep. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are air conditioned. The hotel has a small gym, sauna and steam room which is free for guests. Breakfast is served in a rooftop restaurant which overlooks the whole if Istanbul... A lovely way to start your morning. The breakfasts are fresh and delicious everyday. We were from Glasgow and we loved this hotel.

I vist Istanbul very ofen and from many years I preferto stay in Taksim area. The first impresion of the hotel was that is in the same line with the surround standard hotels. Inside it is very clean and the sraff is proffesonal and very warm. The rooms are large enought and very clean. May be the bath can be bigger but this is not a major impediment.I was realy impress by the quality of the bad. Even that I stay a the inferior floor the room was quiet enought. The brakfast was nice and fresh in the traditional turkish stylle. The brekfast room is located at the last floor with a panoramical view of the Beyoglu district. One by one was a pleasent stay and after 3 night stay I can consder it like a good choice for anybody how want to vist Istanbul strating with Taksim area.
