              The location is good and the staff is ready to help and assist you.

              We were with cars and it was a hudge problem. There is no parking ensured by the hotel and even you can't park the car near the hotel, because the streets are wolking or very tight to stop on them for a minute. Also, the hotel is on a very noisy street and you can hear the music from the clubs around even you close the windows of the room.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Personnel was willing to support us (calling for taxi, guide us how to pick up public transportation, etc.) on all our requests.

              Internet connection (not working) and English language of people working at the reception.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              yes, I liked the stay in the hotel. I liked the service, the room, was clean and nice.

            • Single
              9.4

              very friendly hotel staff, excellent location

              noisy during the night, wireless internet did not always work

            • Couple
              8.8

              Fantastic location near Taksim Square and Istiklal (a major shopping street). Comfortable memory foam mattresses (our bed was 2 twins pushed together but it was fine). Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Nicely designed room, nice bathroom, great water pressure and temperature.

            • Single
              7.4

              The location is very close to Taxim square where you can have moat of the public transport. It is also very close to Istiklal street, bu t this is also a source of noise. The airport transfer is also a plus.

              The internet was not working in my room. I have announced the reception and the manager as well, but nothing changed in the 5 days that I was there. The safe from the room was locked, when I've arrived. I have asked the reception to send somebody to open it, but nothing happened again. As others have mentioned also the area is very noisy. They could improve the English knowledge of the reception personnel.

            • Single
              10.0

              The personnel at the reception was extremely kind and of great help at all times. I would recommend the hotel.

              Istanbul is a city that lives by night so some noise in the old part is inevitable but the windows did a good job of stopping the noise from outside.

              Great location, nice and clean room, very nice bathroom, great service by the hotel staff, okay breakfast buffet,

              Too much noice from the street due to bars and restaurants close by.

              good room with clean bathroom

              hotel was near a noisy street with full of bars etc, this was the only bad thing

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              The friendliness of the Staff at the Hotel and very cooperative. Going the extra mile to make one feel comfortable.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Overall the hotel was good, nothing to complain about really. Location is good for moving around the city. The room was quite large, very clean and cleaned daily exceptionally well. Very comfy bed and pillows.

              The owner/manager seemed a little bit too eager to please, i.e. she was always asking if our holiday was going well etc. I found that a little annoying and unnecessary, for some it may seem just polite. The breakfast room was always very cold and it would've been nice if the rooftop terrace had a cafe or at least chairs and tables (but maybe there weren't any because the season was just starting and the weather was just +15 celsius.) Nice hotel overall, but I wouldn't go again, a bit too impersonal for me.

              It was very clean,in a nice area,really close to Taksim square!An awesome choice overall!

              The breakfast could be better.
