Recent guest reviews

I was checked in at this hotel for 8 nights, the staff is super friendly, the rooms are very well organized, clean, and fair space. The location of this hotel is just perfect because there's everything around it! Restaurants, cafesss, everything. The bathrooms and rooms are cleaned everyday with new sheets and towels. No noises at night, no disturbance, all rooms are private and well distanced. This hotel is one of the very best hotels there is, and there is no doubt that it is top ranked in Taksim. One of my favourite staff members is called ilhan! He's one of the best there is, kind, and very generous. The food (+breakfast) there is very tasty and very clean. I would definitely come back to this hotel sometime in the future, it is for sure the BEST. option anyone could ever choose.

Stayed with my family in this hotel for a few days and was an amazing trips thanks to the receptionists Rashim and Duray who helped us navigate our way around Istanbul and suggested the most brilliant places to visit. Overall, had a great experience. Special thanks to Mr. Rashim who suggested the bosphorpus cruise and the best places to eat.

I never come back to this hotel again. The hotelwas in a dirty old street. The rooms are very small. I didn't like at all. The reception is not very welcome. The staff can speak English just a little and that was annoying

Very good location, three minutes to TAKSIM SQUARE. The staff are very helpful, generous and kind. Good breakfast, comfortable beds, you can find whatever you want around. Real 4 star hotel. Highly recommend 😉. ENJOY.

The three-star hotel and not recommended for those hard-friendly. Overall, bad smell and dirty the room was very impressive. Pool and small rooms with poor internet which is really annoying. In short, not upscale Taksim!

It was the first time to visit in Istanbul and it was too perfect to stay at Avantgarde Hotel Taksim. The reception were fabolus they help the guest above the guest expectations. Hotel rooms were quite good, the breakfast area was also good. The hotel has SPA center which is also good with an indoor swimming pool. At night it was bit noisy from the front side of the hotel due to the disco in front of the hotel rather then that it was a nice choice to stay at Avantgarde Hotel. Hope to meet to guys very sooooonnnnn.

This hotel is nice, room is clean and changed the sheets,covers & towels every day. The rooms on the west side are very noisy because they are exactly next to the street full of Arabic Resturant,also The walls between rooms are so tiny you can hear the snoring of your neighbors. The stuff are nice and friendly. Breakfast all the day is the same but good. Location is good near the Taksim square, metro and dolmas to Aksaray and flora aquarium. We had a good time in this hotel.

The room was little small, the hotel breakfast and the spa center was perfect, regarding the hotel staff they were very polite and helpful in every means. If i will to Istanbul again i will surely visit to avantgarde taksim.

The room was too small and staff were unfriendly. After check out our suitcases were put in the luggage room, and when our tour guide came to pick up us,the bellhop forgot to hand over all of our suitcases and we understood it in airport.

I stayed at this hotel for a week and it was the worst hotel I've personally ever been to, especially given that I was expecting a much better experience after reading the reviews. So here's a list of the problems that bothered me during my stay: Staff: They were all just terrible people. They could not speak or really understand English at all. They were highly disrespectful and rather uneducated in their work. We were greeted poorly and they didn't bother to listen to anything we had to say. Not a single staff member knew how to treat their "customers" right, except for the cleaning ladies. Rooms: Rooms were extremely small, so small that there was literally no where to put 2 suitcases in a 2 person room. The design was very uninspiring and the heater didn't work which is why I have a cold right now. The shower was awful with a rather low and unpleasing water pressure and terrible shampoos. I had to use one whole bottle of shampoo in order to wash my not very long hair. The sheets on the beds were rather old with holes on them, and there was not enough room for our stuff in the closets and the drawers. There was also little light during both night and day so I could not easily read or right. There was not enough power plugs so I had to either keep the bed lamp on or charge my phone. WiFi: It was OK but there was no steady connection so you couldn't for example listen to Spotify and not get frequently interrupted while in hotel. Location: It was relatively close to Taksim but there was probably a 12 minute walk. It could have been worse but I really expected it to be much shorter. Breakfast: It was very very poor comparing to other 4 star hotels that I've been to. There was hardly 10 different foods available with no fruit juice and they were extremely slow to refill the dishes as they ran out. So basically there was always a few empty dishes on the table. They would also change some of the items with some cheaper uninteresting ones and there was nothing nice to eat. I've been to much cheaper hotels and had much more interesting and diverse breakfasts than this one.
