nice hotel for all day out of hotel travelers

Posted Mar 23, 2016
Pros: nice staff.
Cons: chair for baggage support
Location: very near Taksim sq. and Isteklal road
room is clean. smell is nice, it is compact but enough for use. near to the center of city. only you may recognize sounds of Disco musics due to surrounding cafee bars.

Good Service

Posted Apr 27, 2014 on Hotels
It is a good hotel, with good rooms, good breakfast, and good location. The only problem is the loud music, that goes on until 5am. If you want to go out partying this is the place to be, but if your looking for a quiet nights sleep look elsewhere.

Great on a budget

Posted Jun 19, 2013
Pros: the room and location
Location: Istiklal Caddesi
Rooms are newly remodeled. I would recommend this place for someone that can't afford an amazing hotel but wants to have a nice place to sleep and have easy access to Istiklal Caddesi.

Balo Hotel, location location.

Posted Sep 29, 2015
Pros: Location, the prices of the rooms and the staff.
Cons: There's an area with chairs, tables and a mini kitchen in a sort of dark basement. This could be refurbished so that it is less dark.
Location: Lot's of nightlife, shopping, people-watching on Istiklal Avenue, great place if you like partying until the small hours.
I stayed at Balo Hotel for 6 nights. The hotel is centrally located near Taksim Square, Istiklal Avenue, Galata Museum and public transportation like the ferry and subway. The staff are polite and accommodating, specially Adam, and the rooms are functional and most feature a mini fridge. This place would not be your best choice if you are a light sleeper and mind the noise as there are many bars and discos around and you will no doubt hear them even if you don't want to. Other than that, it's good value for money and it makes a great spot to explore Istanbul and its many allures.

Trevlig hotel

Trevlig personal speciellt "Adam", mycket trevligt och hjälpsam person. Jätte bra placering. Nära Taqsimtorget och Istiqlal-vägen.
