This hotel is asking for marriage papers for Turkish citizicens. That means everyone who is not married can't stay as a couple there! Boycott this kind of attitude! This kind of attitude shouldn't be tolerlated no where!

The Villa Zurich offers very comfortable, clean rooms with bathroom and pleasant helpful staff. THe hotel is located in a very cosmopolitan area with many cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, galleries and other sights in the area. It is only a 5 minute walk to Taksim square and other public transport / ferry options. The area is very safe and not affected by the recent protests.
THe top floor fish restaurant / breakfast room has magnificent views of the city and the Bosphorus.
I have stayed here twice as it offers excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a street view 3-4 floors above street level.

The hotel is cosy and has a beautiful restaurant located on the top floor which offers a breathtaking view of istanbul which I think is the hotels best feature: having breakfast while watching the sunrise over the Bosphorus was amazing.
It's a short uphill walk to Taksim Square and maybe the only flaw is that the English level of the employees is not really great.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.

I was staying there with my parents for a long weekend over Easter. Pretty basic, dated but clean. Staff appear to be rude but that's Istanbul for you. The biggest con was the noise from the restaurant coming from the floor above our room. We couldn't sleep as people were moving chairs, talking loud, etc. It was horrible and they should definitely not have rooms under a restaurant. Location was nice but wouldn't recommend staying there. Look somewhere else!

The Hotel Villa Zurich is located in a quiet, residential area Cihangir, an area where you'll find famous local and national artists and musicians.
Centrally located, only 10 minutes walking distance from Taxim Square and the Galata bridge.
A nice and friendly welcome at the small reception, going to any of the 6 floors, where you'll find decent and spacious rooms. The quality of the beds is fair, not excelllent, spacious bath room, mini bar, flat screen TV, telephone, safe, working desk and my rooms (stayed in 2 different rooms) both had a small balcony.
All baths in the rooms are jacuzzi (older versions), but functional,

There's a (locally famous) rooftop restaurant, serving only fish, but very tasteful and affordable. Panoramic view on the Bosphorus/Golden Horn. The breakfast buffet is more than average for a 3* hotel.
On the ground floor, there's a nice café/bar (Café Meyra), where you can enjoy a drink and simple but fair dishes. Several times a week there's live music.
I can recommend the hotel for both corporate and leisure travellers; fair quality at an affordable price. One of the better hotels in Cihangir.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are the better ones. Don't take the XX1 rooms, as they have noisy air conditioning...
