Great location, Clean & Simple

Posted Aug 15, 2014 on Hotels
Old school hotel located in the Taksim/Beyoglu neighborhood. The hotel was on a primary street that made it accessible to charm-filled, cobblestone, hilly neighborhoods as well as busy busy busy commercial Istiklal street. We were the neighborhood a bridge across Sultanahmet with all the historical attractions. The hotel itself supplied a solid Mediterranean "buffet" breakfast on a modern terrace with decent views. The rooms were on the small side but they were kept clean daily. Internet service was a tad on the slow side and though we were thankful for air conditioning it was not central and a little old fashion. Even so, this was a great value experience.

Small hotel close to Taksim Square, Istanbul

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: Quiet and not a large glitzy/bland chain hotel.
I was attending a week-long conference in Istanbul and this hotel was perfect- slightly away from the more touristy area, and therefore surrounded by more inexpensive restaurants/cafes etc. This hotel has a rooftop terrace/bar (where breakfast is served) with good views over the Bospherous and the Blue Mosque. I had a large and clean room at the back of the hotel which was quiet (I think a room at the front would be noisy as the road always appeared to be busy). Only slight complaint was that the bed was hard. With reference to other previous comments, I did not hear any noise from other neighbouring bedrooms. I would highly recommend this hotel- great value for money and has more local character than larger chain hotels. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel lets itself down. Stayed as a couple but was only given 1 key. When I returned alone and without the key I was intially told I couldnt get into the room, after an argument I was reluctantly let in but was denied a power card and had to sit in the dark until my wife returned

The hotel is clean and a very good deal. The location, a few blocks from Taksim Sq, is convenient. The staff are helpful. The free breakfast was perfectly fine.

The hotel was almost perfect - good location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious room. The breakfast had everything we wanted and more - plenty to satisfy - and the setting in the rooftop terrace was very relaxing. The only complaint is that I found the bed too hard and therefore had a disturbed and uncomfortable night.
