Bad area of town!Posted Aug 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
The "hotel" is a poorly renovated old building that has no elevators, poor air conditioning and, while close to Taksim Square, is in a very bad and dangerous neighborhood, with undesirable people and pick pockets preying on the tourists. When I decided to move to another location and asked them to refund me the unused portion of my stay (3 nights) they were very rude and refused to refund my money.

Budget hotel op prima locatiePosted Apr 17, 2014
Locatie was prima, hotelstaff ontzettend vriendelijk maar hotel was in slechte staat, oude voorzieningen, schimmel, beperkte wifi. Verwacht niet de kamers op de foto's. De staff doet wel haar best en is aardig en behulpzaam. Daar is echter vrijwel alles mee gezegd.

Description erronée sur Hotels.comPosted Mar 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nous avons reservé l'appartement à 800€. L'annonce parlait de 2 lits king size et un sofa pour 5 places maxi. Il s'agissait en fait d'un seul lit jumeau (qu 'il nous a fallu partager), et un canapé non convertible non prévu pour un couchage adulte. (C'est un peu inadmissible....). L'appartement est tres agreable car tres lumineux. Wifi présent, mais nous avons regulièrement dû déranger le personnel de l'office en raison de perte de signal, parfois pendant une journée entiëre. La rue n est pas très avenante ni tres calme, mais c est le charme actuel de Taksim en attendant une rénovation du quartier dans... 10 ans ? Nous avons notamment du subir une coupure d'eau intempestive dans le quartier, ne pouvant ne nous doucher qu'en debut d'après-midi. Mais nous avons passé un tres agreable séjour malgré ces inconvénients.

Simple Family-Owned Apartments, Friendly StaffPosted Feb 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Expect simply appointed, clean, and rather basic accommodations, and you won't be disappointed by the apartments at Bianco Residence. Bianco Residence may be a bit difficult to find, and en-route you're going to wind down a few dodgy looking streets, but once you arrive, you'll feel quite welcomed by the lovely family who own the properties and comfortable in the accommodations. Keep in mind, the area is not for everyone. Located either on, or behind, Tarlabaşı Blv, you're on the grittier side of Taksim Square, and while there is quite a bit of renovation going on, there are also quite a few empty, and abandoned buildings in the area. I never felt unsafe, just an instinct to move about with a heightened awareness of the surroundings. I stayed in two of the residence apartments, as Istanbul was a point of departure and return for other travels, and enjoyed both. The apartments were secure, water pressure was good, linens were clean, wifi was strong, cable tv clarity good, the apartment was serviced every three days, and my additional requests - another lamp, better pillows - were fulfilled quickly and pleasantly. There are several markets in the area, making it easy to find provisions to stock the apartment during your stay. When not dining out, I cooked in, and found everything in working order and the kitchenware - while basic - sufficient for preparing meals. Recommended for the budget conscious and those wanting to see an interesting side of the Taksim area.
