I have so much positive to say about LaresPark. My partner & I arrived in the evening & had the wrong currency. The front desk took care of that & paid the taxi driver, thank you. Our booking had been made on the internet not long before our arrival & we hadn't specified a king bed. It was a twin room & the staff quickly made the bed more suitable for a couple. There was nothing wrong (except we hadn't specified king bed) with that room & we went out the next day to have been reappointed to a very beautiful suite on our return.The staff were all charming & attentive. We certainly felt welcome. We stayed for several nights & enjoyed each moment. It is away from the hustle & bustle of the tourist areas but within an easy & interesting journey to enjoy the sights. Lots of wonderful restaurants & shops around Taksim Square which is right nearby. We had lots of questions about where to go, what to do & how to get there. The staff drew out plans on a map each time so we would arrive promptly & safely. The food was amazing also. Our travels have taken us elsewhere in Turkey & we depart from Istanbul so will be back at LaresPark to enjoy the comfort & hospitality before flying home.

Perfectly located and very well run the only letdown was the lifts. One lift was out of order rendering the lift lobby a bottle neck. Rooms are well sized, clean and well drressed. Very enjoyable stay

Room Tip: third floor 313 was a great location quiet and comfortable.

Dear Mr. Malcom B

We are very grateful for the time taken to post such a great review about your stay at LaresPark Hotel Taksim.

Last week for 2 days we had a small problem with fixing the lifts. It took us a bit long to fix them one by one.
I can understand how much difficult it was for guests, especially form high floors to move inside the hotel.
I am happy to hear that you liked our rooms and we would love to welcome you back in our hotel when you are in Istanbul again!

It was my 4th stay in LaresPark hotel. And it’s still my favorite hotel in Istanbul.

First of all I like the location – 3 min from Taksim square and metro station, 30 min from Ataturk airport by taxy (apr 45-50 lira), 5 minutes from famous shopping Istiklal street, 15 min from Dolmabahce Palace, a lot of restaurants, exchange offices, supermarkets around, safe surrounding, no traffic close by.

The hotel is very well decorated and good maintained; rooms are big and clean, free water and kettle with welcome tea and coffee in every room. Staff is very polite and helpful.
The only complain about room – new bell door system is too loud and you can hear someone bell next door, in day time it’s ok, but at night time it’s quite irritating.

Breakfast is big, fresh, various and tasty but it’s a little poorer comparing with 3 years ago. There is no choice of meat at all – one type of sausage – that’s all.

Spa, pool and gym are wonderful.

Portofino Stage Restaurant on the first floor with terrace is a very good one. Every my visit to Istanbul I have dinner there and I was never disappointed – good service and nice tasty food. The bonus - if you stay in LaresPark they give you 10 % discount in restaurant.

When you ask reception to call taxy, ask them to tell driver to not “circling” and use meter – and you will never be upset with taxy price.

I would highly recommend the hotel and for sure will stay there again.

Dear Guest,

We are very grateful for the time taken to post such a great review about your stay at Larespark Hotel Taksim.

It’s such an energetic and alive district here around the hotel.
So it’s always a gladness to have a walk or café around the Istiklal Street.
Our location in the heart of the city, connected to all the transportations of Istanbul is a bonus for our guests.

We are so glad that you liked almost everything about the hotel. It’s an honor to have a loyal guest like you.

The breakfast is as you realized a Mediterranean one, but the choices of food is always made as our guest’s request. We took note of your Remarque and we will make sure to add more meat choices in our buffet.

It’s a smart choice from you to taste the food at the Portofino stage and get benefit of your 10% discount. It’s a pleasure to learn that you like it.

I will make sure to share your comment with the team.
Thank you for recommending our hotel.
We hope to welcome you in the soon future at LaresPark Hotel.

It's nice for a business trip, 'cause it has good conference room and comfortable lobby. Also, there is a very nice pool.

Food served was delicious! Either you prefer local food, or some other, you wont be disappointed! Rooms are very clean, bathrooms are spacious.

Only problem is, that if you have room in the inner part of hotel, there is no window. Well, there is a window, but it looks to ventilation shaft, and if you open it, not just noise, but the smell from the kitchen will come in.

We had slight problem, when asked reception in hotel to call us a cab. The driver charged us double price, then regular. Not sure if hotel has something with it, but I advise you to ask for prices before ride.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feed back about at trip advisor.

So we promise you to give you a room with a street view on your next arrival to our Hotel.

Regarding the taxis, we are sorry that you find it expensive. We always make sure to call a taxi from the station to be sure to not have any problem about the prices and directions. Sometimes the taxi drivers chooses a different way which might be more expensive but with less traffic at the same time.
Please make sure to ask for the price and the distance of your drive from the reception before asking for a cab.
In case of any problem, please make sure to take note of the taxi number so we can deal with it.

Your feedback is very important to us and helps us to make a better service.

I was in Istanbul for business and stayed at this hotel.

The hotel is located at the central tourist area of the city and it is easy to find public transport from there.
The train or Hop-on red busses worked the best for me.
From there I could visit all the main attractions in Istanbul.
Also lots of great things to see in walking distance.

The room was very clean and the food is also great.
Just too bad that there is no English channels on the tv except some east European news channel.
But then again, I didn’t visit Istanbul to watch tv.
Breakfast is a big affair with lots of detail that goes into it.
There is a Italian restaurant at the hotel if you need something more western to eat like a pizza.
Board rooms has all the facilities needed.
Great hotel overall.
