Super location, super service - a great option - the only negative is the room size - but everything else makes up for that
Its right next to Taksim square and Istikalai avenue but nicely tucked away so that you are not in the crowds and yet not far away
For your day sightseeing its just a short walk from the funicular to Kabatas where you can take the tramway to Sultanhemet or if you prefer to take the nostalgic tram and take the funicular to Galata even that is a small walk
Dont miss the small alleys around the hotel. Great eating places
Location and service are clearly the selling point of this hotel

Room Tip: We booked deluxe room but the room shown to us was really tiny we asked for another option and were...

The hotel is situated in a very good location, the rooms are clean and nice but small. The stuff is very friendly and they speak english.The breakfast is various and very good. What I disliked was noisy from the crowed street.

Booked lush hotel via booking.com for a business trip to Istanbul, online the hotel was rated as 4 stars and has some nice pics and good write up about facilities..etc
Once I arrived I was disappointed to see the hotel, to me looks like a residential building been converted to a hotel, very small elevator, one mini restaurant, rooms are so small, reception is a desk in the mini lobby with one staff working as everything in the hotel...etc
So as a world traveller was so disappointed but anyway it's just couple of days for business
But won't stay again in the same hotel despite location is good

I enjoyed a long weekend in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul. Lush hotel is close to various restaurants and drinking spots, some rooftop places offer great view on the Bosphorus. The hotel rooms are in an old building so that you might walk past more than one corner to find your place - the interiour is modern chic though. I liked the bed very much.
In the basement is a restaurant that transforms into a small club. Depending on your room you will hear that ... I was on the 4th floor and had no problems sleeping.
I was received in a very friendly way by the staff. They are helping tourists that need some information about the area.

Room Tip: choose a room on 4th floor. music and live bands is playing in the basement on some evenings

Noisy, expensive, overpriced, small rooms without view - not as advertised.
Live band starts playing at 10:30 pm - you can't talk to each other anymore in your room!!!
I checked out the same evening and went to a different hotel.

This hotel was very very disappointing- BEWARE the misleading pictures online! The rooms were completely different- tiny tiny tiny, you couldn't swing a cat! The staff were unhelpful & disinterested.... They had little knowledge of the sights and were unwilling to book outside of their prefered tourist offers. Very dissappointing breakfast- the salads and fruit were recycled from the previous day (brown banana in the fruit salad!) and the staff seemed irritated when asked for a coffee!
Stay elsewhere!

Lush hotel is very convinient place to stay to be in the centre of the vibrant part of Taksim and close to ISTIKLAL CADESSI!
All rooms are nicely decorated even if some are quite small.
Service is impecable
Breakfast is GREAT in the little patio , such a pleasant way to start the day
Been there twice already and ready to come back!
