“Location is easy to manage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

As this was our base during 10 days we are in Istanbul, we could not pick a better area to stay in relation to distance to the center of action. We were 5 min away (walking distance) from Taksim Metro station. The space is managable with a kitchenette (it would be nice if the washer/dryer and the microwave worked though). A small convenient store is just 20 steps away. On the big street you can find restaurants, money changers, bigger supermarkets, coffee shops. The biggest let down is the noise in the morning because there is a big construction going on just next door to our window. If you are a light sleeper, come back in 1 year from now, hopefully the building is finish already.

I stayed at la casa for 2 nights while staying in Istanbul. We bused from the airport to taksim square which is where you can bus to anywhere and the hotel is only a 5 min walk away. Taksim is under development at the moment so busy with works but the location is still fantastic. The hotel room was clean and had everything we needed. View wasn't great but what do you expect in the middle of a building site but must have saved a small fortune because didn't need to taxi anywhere. Staff also friendly. Great great location

We selected this property as it was reasonably priced and close to Taksim Sq. Looking back, we should have decided to stay in Sultanahment instead. It was extremely challenging to find the location of this hotel as we walked past it about 6 times before finding the road. Luckily, there was still someone there waiting on us around 8:30pm to check us in. That was nice. There is currently a LOT of construction going on so the road was dug up and very, very muddy, especially since it was raining. It was also not well lit. Inside, the bed was comfortable, room spacious and it was nice having a kitchen. Everything was also very clean although there was a musty smell coming from the bathroom. We had a bit of a challenge with the cable not working and when we brought it to the attention of reception, they seemed irritated by the request to fix. The staff WAS very helpful by putting our bags in the room which had been delayed at the airport. We really appreciated that.

Room Tip: High floor nice but don't expect a nice view.

We chose La Casa suites as a budget option close to Taksim Sq. It's location would normally be ideal - and it will be in 6 months time - but it's right on the edge of the massive Taksim / Tarlabaşı urban renewal project that will continue for most of 2013. The project makes road and foot access more difficult, but not impossible. It's still ideally placed close to Taksim, its transport links and shopping. There was some noise during the day from the construction project, but it was distant and dull. The nights were quiet.

The room itself was spacious, clean and had a good kitchenette including a clothes washer. Unfortunately it was a bit lacking for cutlery and cups or mugs or washing up liquid or cloths. There was also a big corner sofa that easily made an extra bed for our daughter. Sadly, it took a few requests for the young guys at reception to deliver the extra linen and a pillow.

Given a bit more attention to detail by the owners this could be a goood budget option, and despite this and the ongoing work in the neighbourhood, is still good value given it's location.

A walk around the neighbourhood gives a great view of inner-city Istanbul and some great cheap and cheerful dining options.
