“The neighbor is very depress, dark and dirty”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Was a bad reality, the conditions of the apartment was not the one that We saw on the publicity, the rooms were unhealthy, the bathroom was very disgusting, outside next to the door room was a buch of garbage, the windows have a lot of dust and the rug was very dirty with the very strong smell a defecation of cat, every night when we arrived the smell was insupportable, and We couldnt opened the door because outside was all the garbage and the smelling too, and We went to talk to them about it, and they told us to changed our room for £20 more and we were agred, but that night when We arrived, they told us the change will be not possible because they already renting the other one, so no solution for us the only thing was stay there for another 3 more nights, but the smell there and the apartment was unhealthy and We told them to help us giving the money of the two last night back, and We can go to other hotel, but He intention wasnt helping us, they already had our money and our situation wasnt their bussines, they dont think about the guess, they only think in the money, they are making with their lie, showing publicity fake.

We visited Adonis house in Taksim on December of 2013 for one week, we booked the roof apartment from their own website for the special price of 40 euro per night which is big and comfortable 60 square meters about (in total we stayed 3 weeks in Turkey, 1 week in Istanbul, 1 week in Cappadokia and then 1 more week again in Istanbul on a different accommodation because Adonis was fully booked. The apartment is on good condition with modern furnitures where has a small kitchen where you can prepare food, even though we didn't use it because you can find cheap places to eat in Istanbul (avoid the touristic restaurants where the quality of food is bad and the prices are expensive compare with the cheap style buffet restaurants where you can choose what you would like to eat, those are delicious and extremely cheap.) The bed was comfortable and big we slept very good. This apartment has a balcony where you can relax and smoke if you do. Even though the view from the apartment is not attractive but i didn't have any problem with it. The street where is located the accommodation it seems a bit weird but as i come from Greece I didn't have any issue with this either. It's 5 minutes walk from the square of Taksim so you are in the middle of Istanbul with easy access to the old town either on foot via the taksim pedestrian street or by public transportation where you visit all the sightseeings North, south, west, east. From the airport you can take the havanas buses to go in Taksim from there Adonis house is about ten minutes on foot (use your gps to find it either you will get confused since you don't know the area. The only negative with our apartment was the lack of cleaning, for the first 4 nights they didn't change towels and sheets with no cleaning at all, but since we informed Ahmet about this issue the next 4 nights they cleaned every day the apartment and they changed the towels and sheets when needed. (if you find a similar issue with cleaning in Istanbul inform the hosts probably they will clean) The wifi works perfectly. Ahmet is a friendly host and help us with all our questions. So in conclusion for what we paid we were satisfied with the apartment. If we didn't have the issue with the cleaning i would have rated Adonis house 5 stars but I give 4 stars just for it. In the end i recommend you to stay on Adonis house.

Room Tip: Book directly from the accommodation website for discounted rates and offers.

Hello George K,
Thank you for your review of Adonis House Taksim. It has been pleasure to host you here in Istanbul and thank you ones more, warning me about the cleaning issue. I put my close eye on cleaning and made sure that everything is under control.
The area, where the apartment is, used to be kind of Poverty area..Now,since past 4 years, Likely what i have seen in most European cities, new trend in Istanbul is that changing that kind of areas and renovating all buildings so that providing the people of the area new healthy living space. For 4 years the area has been improved a lot and became a new boutique guest houses area without loosing traditional life style, therefore it became more attractive for people who like to feel that atmosphere..Totally safe and peaceful and right in the middle of Istanbul :)
It is always a pleasure to meet my guests one to one and talk to them about their experience by staying with us. It has been pleasure to meet you and host you.
Warm Regards,
Ahmet YILMAZ

On our first visit to Istanbul ( Jan 30 - Feb 4, 2014) we found Adonis House the perfect place to stay. A convenient location with very friendly and helpful staff. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable and provided all we needed for a perfect stay in this beautiful and historic city. Already planning another trip in April and looking forward to another stay at Adonis House.
Thank you Ahmet and Engin.

This was the 2nd time I stayed at Adonis House Taksim and once again the experience was excellent.
This time I was given a room at another building behind the street Adonis is. The room was big and comfortable, the bed was nice to sleep. Hot water and heating were very good.
The wifi signal was strong and I had no disconnection.
A problem with the digital receiver of the television was solved in less than an hour.
The neighborhood is typical Turkish. You don't see so many tourists, and this for me is very good.
There are near by 2 grocery stores that operate 24h.
Ahmet, the owner, and his colleagues are friendly, and they will do their best to answer your questions and help you to discover the city.

The Hotel is small cozy and comfortable. Rooms bigger than standart hotel rooms. Manager Ahmet and Receptionist Engin very nice and kind people. They are always ready to help when you have a problem. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and well equipped.

The city center is only 5 minutes away bywalk. You can reach everywhere very easily.

I will definetely stay here again... and highly recommended! :)

We stayed in the month of May2013, we were there for 4 days and had a great time. Located walking distance from Taksim square. The suite is exactly the way it appears on the website. Ahmet is a good host and helps you with the itinerary. The place is clean and self sufficient with small kitchennette, living space and bed room. There are some grocery shops nextdoor where one can buy and prepare meal if required. Only thing is, it is difficult to find the place if coming from Airport. We had opted for pickup but even that taxi was not able to find the place. BUT Once you are there, you realise it is very well located. Ahmet, overall we had a good time and now hoping to visit once again with family and then we wish to visit your native Izmir too. Regards,
Monali and Sameer, India

Dear Monsam10,
I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us.
The problem you have been through about finding Adonis House Taksim is a familiar problem to us. Unfortunately the street names and signs is not clear and enough in Istanbul, local government is working on it to solve this shameful problem.
That is why we sent an information mail to our guests before they arrive and kindly ask them to get in touch with us to help them to find the way around.
Coming to the hotel with taxi is sometimes difficult as some roads are one way and taksi drivers are not trained well. But as you said the hotel is only 3-4 minutes walking from taksim square.
Thank you for your time to review us! it is very important to us to know our guests's experience about staying with us.
Best Wishes!
Ahmet YILMAZ

I had reservations about staying here because of another review I read but am now so glad we decided to stay there. The location was great - five minutes from Taksim Square and the metro. The suite was in an old building in a narrow street that really gave one the feeling of being in authentic Istanbul. The apertment was clean and comfortable - and very reasonably priced - and I can certainly reccommend this to anyone. The owner, Ahmet, was most helpful and friendly (even allowing us to shower in his apartment when we arrived at 7.ooam in the morning and were unable to check in till 2.00pm) Thanks for a great stay Ahmet!
