Great location and wonderful staff
The hotel was clean but the showers were so small, slanted ceiling so it was not easy for taking a shower. Beds are comfortable but squeak non stop, every move you make. The staff is very friendly and made our stay great! We had a free tour included in our stay and I would be very cautious of it going forward. Our tour guide took us to see some of his “friends” at various tourist attractions and we got scammed twice!!! It put us out $1200 and we will deal with it once we are at home. As far as the hotel goes, friendly staff and excellent location.

8/10 Very good

This place tells a story... beautiful place
Lovely hotel with great service and nice big rooms:-) Sadly the twin rooms offer no view - as the window is facing inwards with tiny patio with almost no natural light at all. But if you are anexplorer like me and wont spend much time in the room, this hotel is ideal! Next time i will book double room with view!

The place to be
This hotel is in a prime location. It’s right in the bustling 24/7 area and in walking distance to countless shops and restaurants. To make it even better, the staff is amazing!! They really made us feel like we were visiting family. They offered great suggestions and were happy to help with any requests. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit.

Wonderful stay
We spent 3 nights and loved our room, the amazing staff who helped us navigate the city and directed us to restaurants for breakfast and dinners. We also used the shuttle service both from and to the airport and we’re glad we did. The location of the hotel was perfect for exploring, access to shopping and restaurants.

Lovely room in great location and great service
Great room and service staff was great. They made a fresh brew of coffee for me at 9pm and again at 5 am. Location was awesome - we are able to walk around iskitlal street and quickly come back to room for some rest. Our stay there was very short - total time was 9 hours.

Great staff, hotel and location
Excellent staff at the front. Amazing customer service, ability to communicate in English and make you comfortable. Location is excellent and right next to Taksim without needing to go up and down the hilly Istanbul a lot. Loved the stay and will come back
