The staff was very helpful and kind. The location of the hotel was great, literally less than 5-minute walk to Taksim square.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was a scam, whatever shows on the website pictures isn’t the hotel! They take you to some small hotel with awful spacing and old furniture! Never felt the urgency of leaving while staying! No refunds if you didn’t like your room. I wouldn’t even spend a dollar there, 1/10 on being there.
