                                    The view was absolutely fabulous, and the room very comfortable. The location was convenient.

                                    The bathroom drain smelled bad; staff was a bit disorganized.

                                    The location was excellent - just 300 metres away from Istiklal caddesi street

                                    The first night they gave us a single room that could hardly fit our 2 suitcases and the bed was too small!

                                    Excellent location, good value for money, nice and polite staff.

                                    Knowing Turkish standards, the breakfast was a bit poor, they definitely can and should improve on that.

                                    What I like most was that it has an excellent location

                                    Unfortunatelly I chose "economy rooom' because I wanted a single room. The price was not different than the standard room. But the economy room was an underground room (under a bar), something that was not mentioned at the hotel's details. Don't you think that this is a very important information? Fortunately there were free rooms the second day of my arrival and I changed the room. Otherwise I would have left this hotel.

                                    Privacy. Convenience.

                                    Breakfast time is rather late and there is not much variety. I do understand that it is not a very big hotel but having a slightly different menu or selection everyday would be nice since I stayed there for 5 days/4 nights.

                                  • Family with children

                                    The staff are very friendly and cooperative. Especially Mr.Ozdogan who helped us to arrange a ferriboat reservation, and the manager who allowed us to extend our stay. In general, it is a good hotel and they do their best to serve the customers. Although the room was small, it was tidy and clean.

                                    it is noisy at sleeping time , all the street sound was in the room

                                    very friendly staff, willing to help

                                    breakfast is not great, but it's ok; no international tv channels.

                                    I am 24 years of age. Me and my boyfriend stayed in room 602 and was very pleased. The room had a balcony overlooking the famous Maiden's Tower (Kiz kulesi), the rooms were always warm and we never had an issue with regards to the heating despite the cold temperature outside. Bathroom was cleaned everyday and towels and bed sheets changed daily. The staff were very very friendly and were very helpful. I Will definately stay here and would recommend it to all my friends and family.

                                    It can be a little noisy after mid-night, but its not the hotel, its the fact that the hotel is so close to the Istiklal Avenue (caddesi) (30 seconds walk away). However, it didnt bother us much.

                                    The hotel is conveniently located.

                                    Hotel staff could be more efficient and service oriented.

                                    Excelent location, very close (50 m) to Istiklal street and Taksim Square, colorful, animated and picturesque area. Close to public transportation- bus, metro, teleferique. The room was huge, very comfortable with generous windows and a balcony with a breathtaking view to Bosforus. The whole location was very clean and cozy. Breakfast was very good and plentiful, a lot of tasy food, coffee, tea, milk and fruit juice. Staff was very polite and courteous, fluent in English. A special remark for Ilkay from reception who was really helpful and friendly, a true professional. Last but not least there are a lot of nice restaurants, cafe, clubs and shops in the area-the only problem is that it's hard to decide which one to choose first. I highly, honestly recommend this hotel.

                                    The room acces cards did not work properly from time to time, but this was not really a big deal.

                                    The location is the only good thing about the hotel. Also the staff are very friendly and willing to help.

                                    WiFi doesn't work. Hotel is old, the walls are falling apart, and the rooms are very small. "standard 2 person bed" was not able to fit two very skinny people. the bathrooms especially are very small. most of the channels on tv do not work. In our room the remote control for AC was missing, so we called them to replace it which they did immediately by borrowing the remote of the neighbor room.

                                    A very nice hotel with respect to the price and location. Would book it again.

                                    The room was very warm but bearable.

                                    - I liked the location. Right off Taksim and Istiklal Street. Very central.

                                    Had the worst experience in this Hotel. 1. The staff is extremely uncooperative in the hotel and do not understand English very well. 2. The hotel and staff get kickbacks for all their recommendations including calling for a taxi. They told me that they had fixed a rate with the cab but after sitting in the cab, the cab driver demanded something else. 3. Even though there was room available they could not extend my checkout for 2 hrs. 4. The breakfast is from 8 - 10, but everything is over at 9 and if you ask them to refil it, they are rude. 5. The rooms are very small and not very clean. 6. Their double beds are small enough for just one person so me and my wife had to sleep on twin beds. 7. do not stay here.
