great choice for Taksim Square area

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: For the price, the rooms are spacious and nicely designed.
Cons: We asked what a call to the US would be and were told a minute would be under a dollar. In at, it was very expensive.
Location: Just two blocks from a low cost bus to the airport that leaves every 15 minutes- much better than a taxi.
We had a standard room which was spacious and well designed, with a small seating/lounge area and large bathroom. The room was very quiet and comfortable. Staff were all helpful and pleasant. Great location close to Taksim Square and transportation.

2 nights on business. Great Taksim location

Posted May 31, 2014
Great central Istanbul location at Taksim Square where there are loads of shops/bars restaurants in the walking area.. Right by the 'funicular' so a few minutes from the port for boats to Asia side and tour boats. Very friendly staff and good food. Rooms clean and comfortable. Pleasant outside dining/bar area. Only slight difficultly was on check in when there was no record of my Expedia booking. This could have not been the Divan's fault at all but anyway they rectified it with complimentary drinks for me and my colleague while rooms were sorted out for us. Top hotel. Definitely will go back.

Terrible experience while check-in

Posted Mar 25, 2014
Once arrived to hotel, I was told that my reservation was not shown on their system even I showed them confirmation on Expedia Web site! Having refused to help me ~As if I did something wrong that have a booking through online~, they asked me to look after myself and call expedia centre in US. After 2 hours to managed to contact expedia, I was able to get my room! Lady in reception treated as we are free buckshee on the house! Very rude and disrespectful! TV Remote control was not working, took 2 days someone to reach my room and check! And It took 2 days to provide drinking water in our room! Maybe There was no water in Istanbul markets, I don't know ! Terrible...and Unbelievable experience in my life!

Lovely hotel in the heart of the city.

Posted Feb 4, 2014
Pros: Room fantastic - large windows and bathroom, staff helpful and friendly.
Location: In the centre of the European part of Istanbul - an exciting city - right by taksim square - can get everywhere from here.
Came to stay for a conference but had time to do some sightseeing. It's location was perfect for both - can get to the sights across the horn by public transport or even by walking.

Nice hotel at a central location

Posted Jan 26, 2014
Pros: Hotel is reasonable size and staff treat guests properly and politely. The hotel has been completely rebuilt and is very new and clean.
Location: Walking distance to the old districts (Pera) nearby. You can also walk to Dolmabahce palace or the beginning of Bosporous.
Hotel staff are very courteous. New, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was charged separately for me and looked expensive. If possible opt for a booking that includes breakfast.
