4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We visited Istanbul and stayed for 4 days in Avantgarde Taksim in April 2018. Our stay was OK; I expected so much more of this hotel. 1) The Location: good. Very close to Taksim square, Istiklal street. A supermarket right across the street. Although there were clubs, we didn't hear much noise. 2) The room: small, but ok. Not very clean! The carpet, chair, were dirty with stains; dusty. They didn't change the bedsheets. There is no tissu paper in the room (kleenex). We were staying in a triple room. They only put 2 towels. I told the receptionist about it, but nothing changed. No satellite on the TV. 3) The breakfast: it was good. Big variety of bread; cheese; eggs. 4) The staff was friendly and helpful. This is a 4-star-hotel, so I expected so much more; and I wasn't very satified. Thank you

Nice hotel location The manager on duty RASHIM is an excellent guy and very helpful Walking distance is 1 minute to Al Istiklal street where you can enjoy the walk and meet thousand of people from different nationalities.

Dear manager( if there is).I had a tour to istanbul in 26 march to 31 march at avantgard with my wife and our doughter. However i booked a room with double room with an extra bed, but The duty manager of hotel told me all of rooms are booked, and only there is a room with a double bed! After some minutes and many discuse they accept to give me a room with tree single beds! We started with this big lie our trip. But it wasn't all. Yesterday morning we went to have breakfast. It was managed at least! There were many types of eggs with only one type of frout (apple) with no dessert! I dissappointed because the rate of hotel in booking is 8.2 and in hotel is 8.3! I told it to the manager who was there and i asked him for poor and week breakfast. He answerd: because people likes eggs!!! This was very funny. Actually he thinks people are hen!!! Rooms were very small with bad smells(in first floor). I really give number 0.75 to your hotel: 0.25 for its lying receptions, 0.25 for manager responsibilities,and 0.25 for all of other services that luckily i didn't use. This is 3th time that i come to istanbul,But certainly it is the last time for avantgarde.

We were two ladies that arrived at 1.30 in the morning at Ataturk Airport. We phoned the hotel for help and the guy from the reception, Rashim, was amazing. He gave us all the information to safely arrive in Taksim Square and sent someone there to carry our luggage to the hotel. Also, during the 7 days we spent there all the staff was helpful. Very good location. Breakfast had a large variety of food. The room was very clean, but a bit noisy when the wind blew...The towels were changed every day. Hammam was an interesting experience, too. I definitely recommend this hotel!!!

I stayed 5 days in march 2018 in this hotel. The lobby was small and dirty. Staffs were not polite and helpful.The room was so small which there was no space to put your suitcase. The room furniture was old and the TV was too small and didn't work properly. On the other hand,The breakfast war poor too, there were not even any fresh fruits. All in all, the behavior of the staff and facilities were not acceptable for a 4 star hotel, it was more like a hostel to me. I do not recommend this hotel at all.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The room was spacious. The breakfast was delicious. All the staff were friendly and helpful especially Mr. Salami Kurhan.I would like to thank him for his wonderful hospitality and amazing services. He made my stay more comfortable and enjoyable. He showed me how to use various transportation means to visit lovely places and shops that sell good products for affordable prices. I recommend this hotel to all tourists visiting Istanbul. This is my second visit to this hotel and I'm looking forward for my third one. From Me. Siham, Lebanon

We stayed 3 nights in February, the room was extremely noisy and tiny, during e days we just had 1 bottle of water, it was never charged by hotel and the funny is that for bottles of water in fridge we had to pay money, it's incredible!!!! The room was so dirty, they were so careless about cleanness as you can see in the picture The soap and shampoo never charged, I'm sure it's not even a hostel. Location and breakfast was normal.

Been for the first and last very rude staff and service the rooms so dirty only a glass door to the bathroom room so the next door can hear you to have a shower it’s a miracle to have a shower water is like a drip only good thing about it’s in the centre of taksim won’t be coming back they like the arabs and the Russians better because they tip them well they don’t speak English well and they made me a long time to check the mini bar it was my worst travel only good thing man working in the breakfast area he’s name is lokman he’s been friendly with us he’s doin he’s job very well but it was my worst travel

The staff is good, but there is a night club nearby, if you stay back side it is cool, else night are sleepless. Hotel offers indoor pool, sauna and spa for a relaxing stay right in the heart of Istanbul. Very good breakfast buffet

This hotel has the smallest room I've ever been. The breakfast is not good at all. Never ask a reception to advise you about the restaurant. They advised the worst and the most expensive food you ever could try in whole world.
