I stayed at the Gonen Hotel for 5 nights April 2014. The hotel is located centrally just a skip and a jump from Taksim square. The main shopping area and fish market are walking distance, public transport is close by and taxi to anywhere in Istanbul is easy and affordable.
Breakfast is good. The room I had was small. As I was alone it was OK but for two people it could be a little to small for comfort. The walls of the rooms are very thin as I could hear my neighbor snoring all night. If you are sensitive, this might not be the place for you.
Hotel staff where very friendly. Wifi is free and works very well. Skyping is not a problem.
There is a fitness studio in the basement with an indoor pool. The Pool on the roof was closed as it was still early spring.
There are also many great restaurants, supermarkets and shopping possibilities close by.
For people who prefer practicality to luxury, this is an option for you.
