AN OVERRATED HOTEL

Would not recommend Thu, May 16, 2013
This was supposed to be a five-star hotel, but I believe four-star is even more than enough. The room was smelly, small with old furniture and stained carpet. The staff was very impersonal. The food was average and very expensive. The only plus was the location. Hint: Do not use the hotel's taxis, they charge double the price at least.

Shopping hint

TAKSIM SQUARE is less than 100 m away.

Great Day In Istanbul

Would recommend Mon, Dec 10, 2012
The location was perfect only a few blocks from Taksim Square and in the middle of some great restaurants and bakeries. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is also a Jazz night every Friday and Saturday in the restaurant/lounge area. I will go back...

Dining

You must try Faros kebap, it's in the next block and the food is amazing. Great wait staff, Omer served me and he was right on with his recommendations and the Kunefe for dessert is the best.

Service could have been a bit more friendly but it was acceptable. The room was nice, pool was good and the hotel is in a good location. A good price as well. I would stay there on my next trip to Istanbul.

Pleasant hotel at a good price

Would recommend Thu, Aug 18, 2011
The hotel was nicely appointed at a very fair price in an area in the new district of Istanbul near Taksim Square that had lots of hotels and cafe/restaurants, and was closed off to most vehicular traffic. The rooms were pleasant enough but a little dark given how modern the lobby was. My 87-year-old mother was given a handicapped room whose bathroom was well-equipped for her needs. The staff was friendly and helpful. On the downside, given the number of floors in the hotel, the elevators did not seem to be able to keep up and we often chose to use the stairwell instead even though we were five floors up. Perhaps more importantly, if your goal is to see the sights in the old district (which is what we were focused on), the hotel is a bit out of the way. I suppose that there are trade-offs between price and convenience.

Money saver

Make sure when you take a "taksi" in Instanbul that you insist that they use the meter rather than giving you a flat rate. The meter rate is quite reasonable and always better than what you'd be charged otherwise.

Very nice bathroom with jacusi and a separate shower, although the bedroom is kind of small. The indoor pool is perfect for kids and adults to enjoy, and the staff is quite nice. The breakfast buffet is another plus for this hotel. The location is at the center of Taksim, walking distance to bus stops and shops. A great hotel for a family vacation in Istanbul.
