The hotel has located near the istiklal street and if you (like me) love this street, cafes and nightlife of Istanbul, the selection of this hotel is absolutely right!
My wife and I (30y) stayed there for 4nights and all nights walking around Istiklal, Taksim, cafes and restaurants there. We were at 7th floor with a view of sea. This was wonderful too.
The negative point is noise of the cars that are till midnights! Other things like breakfast menu, bathroom and facilities are acceptable. Wifi signals was good as well!

Breakfast: limited choice, no fresh fruit/ orange juice
Unstable wifi connection

Clean bathroom, nice shower
Comfortable bed
TV, minibar
Nice view!
Close to subway

Normal price (60 euro) would have been reasonable but prices tripled because of conference.

My husband & I stayed at this hotel at the start & end of our Cosmos Grand Tour of Turkey, last autumn.
Our arrival was too late for the evening meal but check-in was pleasant. The room (210) was ok, just for the night. It had a hairdryer but no kettle (not good for a supposed 4*) fortunately, we had our own. There was shower gel & shampoo; the room was spacious & clean but no balcony & not a great view. Other part members had nice views of the Asian side of the city & the Golden Horn. Traffic was noisy; take ear plugs, if you’re a light sleeper.
Breakfast was ok; I don’t eat cooked breakfasts but my husband does & would’ve appreciated bacon amongst the cooked offerings. I did note that the croissants were rather soggy! There was a TV, fridge & mini-bar containing fruit juice & chocolate, so it wasn’t all bad!
Our final 2 nights of the tour was spent in a refurbished room, 624. It was at the back, so no view except an inward one of the other rooms. There were nice, silky bed drapes, in warm red & gold colours along with a nice rug on the wooden floor. It had a plasma TV on the wall, spacious bathroom, good glass shower guard, full length mirror in the hall part of the room, hairdryer *and* kettle this time, but no coffee or tea bags; luckily, I always carry some sachets with us. The hotel floor plan, on the back of the door, showed that it’s the largest room on that level.
The air-con was a bit too efficient & rather noisy. Strange smells waft in, now & again, e.g. before 4am, one can smell breakfast preparations / cooking & there was an unfortunate, unsanitary smell, floating around after breakfast, in the corridors; sometimes a musty one too.
Now for the lifts…..goodness! Lifts at the front had been ok but the ones at the back had a will of their own! One journey up to room 624 was like something from a film. We’d just joked about getting stuck between floors when there was a big jolt & it wouldn’t open. After fiddling about with the buttons it did re-start but would only go up to level 5, so we got out & walked up to 6. The 2nd journey saw us being taken only part way down so we got out & went the rest of the way on foot. One of our party was taken down to the basement & was quite lost till some more of the group ‘happened upon her’, as the lift took them down there too. After all that, I refused to get in it again; I like to be in control!
There is a free safe key available from reception & taxis to the bazaar & environs should be about 15TL. There is a Café Nero nearby & we enjoyed meals at the Big Chef Café & Brasserie, 3rd left as you come out of the hotel.
We weren’t too struck on the location & if we return to Istanbul, we’d like to be on the other side of the river, but it was ok for the odd night, as part of a group tour.

Hotel has a sweeping entry and certainly looks grand. Rooms ( had 3 different ones during my stays) clean, basic and all that we needed except for a kettle and tea:) Depending on rooms, walls thin and during our stay there seemed to be no understanding by some guests to lower voice after 10-11pm or caution their children to behave. For two nights neighbors talked loudly until 2am leaving us less than sparkling for our Istanbul day. This is a situation for the hotel to remedy .... Simple signs that remind guests ' no noise ' after 10 pm ' lower voices in halls and rooms after 10 pm' might be helpful. Children were left to run in breakfast room and at least twice I was ' run into' while carrying a tray of food. Perhaps the serving staff need to reinforce safe behavior if the parents don't :). The hotel staff were lovely, exceptionally helpful - they do their best if you present patience, understanding, humor and a smile. A real gem is both the pool after a long day walking and the simply stated restaurant on Floor 8 offers a simply magical panoramic view of Istanbul over the Golden Horn. It is perfectly situated to get to ferries, restaurants ( Takzim Square), metro ( buy card from concierge), Spice Bazaar, GalataTower area and shopping.
