Let me share with you my story. I booked this hotel 4 months ago and paid in advance 525 euros.
I arrived in Istanbul 24.03. at 21:15 at the evening. I informed owner of this "hotel" that I will be arriving between 21:00 and 21:30.
When I showed, there was no one there, I called owner on his contact number from booking.com more than 10 times, but there was no answer. I was there with my wife and two small children, on the street with my lugage, and soon children started crying because they were affraid.
I waited for him for 1 hour, and when I saw that no one will show, I tooked taxi and started to look for another hotel.
Lucky, I found one, I took room and also paid right away for 5 nights. Around 23:30 I manage to contact this owner of Cihangir Okyanus Apartments, but only after booking.com contacted him first.
To make long story short, I stayed in Legend hotel (which was great btw), and at the end owner of Cihangir Okyanus Apartments didn't want to refund my money, he lied that he called me, that I didn't called him, but I have list of calls from my mobile, so for now it seems that I will have to find my justice over police station.
So, if you want a real adventure, go to Cihangir Okyanus Apartments.
