Great location, good hotel but poor management
Posted Aug 24, 2013
Taximtown hotel is located in the heart of Taksim, it is a 3 minute walk to the popular 'Istiqlal' street, making the location perfect of you're forward to shopping or reaching other destinations, it is 5 minutes away from the Metro station as well.
The hotel is relatively new, it's modern style is relaxing and convenient, rooms are a bit small but that's how it is in big cities!
What was unpleasant was housekeeping, when we entered the room there was vegetables in a plastic bag inside the fridge which obviously belonged to previous room occupants, there was a pair of socks inside the bed side drawer as well !!! Rooms were not properly cleaned daily and sometimes not done at all!
Telephone was not working throughout the whole visit! Breakfast was good, not too much variety though!
Omar who is working there as a waiter was more than excellent providing great service, helpful and friendly! (Must thank him).
Conclusion is the hotel is great and comfortable and is of great value and fairly inexpensive, however there seems to be a problem with management and housekeeping!
