Reviewed June 18, 2013

the location of the hotel is great you only need to cross the road to reach taksim square,the underground and bus station.the draw backs were with the front disk officers again who knew that the flight will arrive @8 am and refused to make an early check in for more than twenty guest on the same flight.we had all the baggage an all these people in the tiny reception for three hours.and we were surprised with the room that is located some where with tobacco smoking smell that burned our eyes we stayed in this room for one night with a promise to change it and they did it.the other room was better,below average cleanliness,but our friends stayed in a better room in the new extension(lucky them).

Room Tip: new extension rooms,or choose the main street view high floor away of the traffic noise

I Stayed there for about a week. Let's start with the pros: 1-great location, by that I mean that everything that's anything in Istanbul is almost is at walking distance. 2- Reasonably clean room.
3- Breakfast variaties are very good.
The cons: Terrible AC in the first 2 days. Twin beds were actually a double bed with two matteresses, uncomfortable if you're travelling with your body!. Most importantly I believe is that for a " 4 star Hotel", this is poor. I believe you can get a much better accomdation in one of the higher ranked hotels here on TripAdvisor with the same price bracket as this one. I had little time to arrange with my travel agency and that's why I had to go with this one!

*** There are some construction works currently ( Spring 2013) in the Tarlabasi Bulvari right infront of the hotel, so you might need to consider that temporarily.

I stayed there with my friends for 5 days, The Hotel in a Perfect location Directly infront of Taksim square with all the facilities, only 3 min walk to Istiklal Street which is the night life in Taksim.
Although not all the rooms are like the Pictures but most of them very good, clean and with enough space either in DBL or TPL rooms.
I strongly recommend friends and families to book in this hotel.

I recently stayed in Cartoon hotel Istanbul for 5 days, and would not recommend it to anyone for many reasons such as (1) very small rooms, (2) breakfast was terrible (3) front desk always extremely busy so you have to wait so long just to get to talk to them (hotel is very understaffed), and location is not quite as was suggested to us by the travel agent. Overall poor and definitely not going there again.

Room Tip: There are simply no good rooms

I stayed there with my family for 7 days ,the hotel location is perfect with a walking distance to isteklal st Taksim square and Under groung station.
Room quality is fair and you can hear all outside noise if you are in early floors...breakfast is good for 4 star hotel.
It was good value for money but will try another in my next visit.

Room Tip: Try the higher floors to avoid noise

The room was spacious and clean..The downside was it's location in the ground floor where you could hear conversations on the street if you decide to keep the windows open. The hotel has central heating and during winter we find it a bit too hot and we had to keep the windows open to sort of equalize the temperature. Hotel staff are fairly polite. Location is strategic but currently construction is ongoing in front the hotel. Breakfast is nice but same menu for all the 4 days we are there. Overall, decent place for low price and strategic location.

Room Tip: Any rooms above the ground floor.
