Don't go therePosted Apr 10, 2016
Terrible hotel would never stay there again. "City view" is just a big brick wall, electricity cut outs in rooms, cleaners don't clean properly and never put tissue in toilet, no sound insulation so you can hear everything outside, no ac/fan so was boiling at night, safe in room got locked won't open, curtains not long enough so sun will get in first thing in the morning. This is just to name a few things iv stayed at many hotel and wouldn't give this place 2 stars. Breakfast was half decent and the view from it but that's all.

Excellent Hotel & Location. Staff is very supportive. However, the hotel is not common for Taxi Drivers, they always have problems in identifying the place though its on famous sea side road. Breakfast is also good. However, the menu does not changed (atleast for 4days in our case).

good value great locationPosted Mar 22, 2015 on Hotels
The location is perfect and close to the taksim and istiklal. The breakfast was with a beautiful view of the bosphorous. Now they have renewed all the hotel so that is a plus point for the hotel.

Great hotel in perfect locationPosted Mar 20, 2015
Pros: Location near public transport. Breakfast. Views. Staff.
Cons: There were minor renovations underway, so I guess that is one thing.
Location: Tram line in front of the hotel connects to almost every tourist spot. Taksim Square is a short distance away. Hafiz Mustafa for baklava.
We had a great stay at the Nixon Bosphorus Hotel - although while we were staying it appeared that they were changing the name of the hotel to "Anjer". The stay was great, the breakfast every morning on the rooftop was a delight. Wide selection of items to chose from and great quality too. The breads, cheeses, teas, to go with all the hot preparations were amazing. The hotel is directly across the tram line which connects to the heart of the city where all the monuments and shopping spots are. This is the only tram line which visits the city center and having immediate access to the line was a great bonus. The other end of the tram line connects to the funicular which gives immediate access to Taksim Sq. The views from our room overlooking the Bosphorus were fantastic. The staff too was very approachable and took every effort possible to make the stay pleasant. All-in-all the stay was great. Top three takeaways: 1. Location near tram line. 2. Breakfast. 3. Views of the Bosphorus.

close to allPosted Feb 12, 2015
Beautiful location, easy access to transportation. more negatives than positives about the hotel. I have stayed many times and this time was beyond horrible. The room we got last minute so it was not the bosphorus room. So we got the regular rooms city view. Well there is no city view, just views of generator pumps to the hotel. The smell of the rooms was so gross you felt like you smelled like sewage. Even after complaining they just smile say we will put air freshner. Well sewage smell never left along with the power outages in hotel daily. And the rooms are NOT sound proof anywhere in hotel, you can hear everything and everyones conversations from all directions even from elevators. No privacy at all. I love hotel only for location purposes. Staff needs to learn more English but again no one in Turkey speaks English so I guess learning Turkish is only option :)
