“In the end happy, but took a bit of getting there!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Long trip to get here, bad traffic and the site map took us to the right area but not the right place, took some finding, so by 8pm tired and may be a bit grumpy, checked in and the guy took our car some where (parking is not on site and must be paid for) got to the room, didn't quite look like the picture on the internet and the beds were single not a double, ok room but the bathroom was yucky, the floor was covered in water, the shower was full of black mould! I called the reception and asked to move room, a guy came to the room to look and couldn't understand why we weren't happy with the shower being full of black mould, another guy turned up and was much more helpful, he took us to a different room, this one smelled damp and the bathroom ceiling was wet through, 3rd room, was fine, still single beds, but clean and a bit more like the pictures. The next morning I didn't hold out much hope for breakfast, but it was actually really nice, good selection, great view, a cheeky seagull on the air con unit looking in. Great location right on Taksin square, right by the metro, restaurants and bars, so all turned out great in the end. The cartoon theme is a bit creepy and I had to cover the Mickey mouse picture in the bedroom as it was freaky!

It's at a great location and quite reasonable.
The staff is friendly & helpful. The breakfast very good.
However the name and the themed corridors of cartoon characters really are most incongruous with a 3 star rating - a bit of a put-off......
Would surely recommend it if you're the typical tourist just needing a good nights sleep & wholesome breakfast.

I was super disappointed with this hotel's Shockingly Bad service. I will never stay here again.
Just some of the highlights:
Room cleaning staff must be completely untrained. The room was always in a mess with dirty clothes and towel thrown on top of clean ones.
The reception staff were not happy to see us.
Breakfast was suitable only to Asians and not Europeans tastes.
Hardly anyone spoke English.
Our stay here almost Ruined our trip to Istanbul.

Stayed in Cartoon Hotel for three nights. Excellent location at Taxim Square very close to the funicular and Istiklal Street. The breakfast spread was very impressive for a hotel of this category. The front office was very helpful and the wifi speed could not be faulted. The only problem was the housekeeping and the fact that they charge for bottled water whereas it is the standard practice for hotels to provide at least one bottle per day and then charge for subsequent usage. But the main irritant was housekeeping, the room was neither vacuumed nor swept for three days, which can easily be rectified by better management. Otherwise would recommend this hotel anytime.

Me and my wife stayed at Cartoon hotel for 5 days. The reception was friendly, they upgraded our room to a suite at the new building. The hotel itself is only 1 minute walk from Taksim Square, excellent location. Breakfast was good, lots of variety, I personally expected less but it was a good surprise. The staff was helpful and we didn't have any problems throughout our stay.

I would recommend this hotel for couples and families alike.

Room Tip: Get a room in the new building away from the street noise.
