Republika Ortaköy Academic ApartmentsPosted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: Very friendly atmosphere especially in the canteen.
Cons: It would be good to have information for newcomers about how the public transport system works e.g. where to buy the different tickets / tokens.
Location: Good public transport links nearby. Fascinating street life and friendly shops.
Taxi drivers find it hard to find, I think because it's fairly new. It's a very well organised and luxurious student accommodation. Many rooms are underground with artificial light outside the windows, but it works surprisingly well. Very friendly canteen and lots of social areas. It's a highly controlled environment with card passes that only let you into certain areas and CCTV monitoring - probably so parents feel it's safe for their children studying away from home.

Best for young people and studentsPosted Sep 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
It's been a great stay in Republika and I recommend that specially to young people and for long stay to students. Probably one of the best student accommodations I've ever seen and trust me I've seen a lot! There are very kind and decent staff. Specially there's a very nice guy in reception after midnight till morning usually, he speaks English very well, which is a rare thing in Turkey, His name was Muharrem Akkalp, He was very kind and helpful. They have a swimming pool on the roof and a Gym on-site which is well equipped for a short stay or if you're not training for Mr.Olympia! would be great if they add some heavier weights. Rooms are well designed, bed might be a little bit short for tall guys. There's also a game center, a movie theater and on-site laundry. Anyways if you want to stay a whole day in the Hotel you won't get bored. I booked the room for two weeks but I stayed for about a month and if I ever want to visit Istanbul again it's the only place that I would choose to stay.

Cons: Not cleannig the white floor room

Very good infrastructure and easy to use public transport. Very difficult to be located by taxi drivers from town! Weak housekeeping team, cleaning late afternoon. Affordable but no TV in the room...nice wardrobe but no hangers ..,
