  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

This is a small hotel, tastefully decorated, and excellently located. The price point reflects excellent value for money., particularly with the larger rooms. Be sure to state that you would like you room cleaned on a daily basis if staying for more than one night. The staff are very helpful.

Bed-bugs Hotel

It was the worst experience, I asked to cancel my second night because the bed was full of bed-bugs, they refused to refund and didn’t bother to offer changing the room, or even to check the bugs!

Stayed 2 nights in Aug 2018


Horrible Experience

First of all, the room was falsely advertised and were trying to put me in a room the size of a closet and told me they don't have anything else. I kept demanding to change the room for an hour and after that the clerk gave up and gave me another room. As you can imagine I was frustrated because I was exhausted after my long hours and the hotel was holding the room from me and tried to screw me. The second night the fire alarm was going from 1AM to 6AM with no one to talk to. The third night there was no internet and for the rest of the days it was slow as a turtle. The room was cleaned only once and I had to beg for towels. The gorgeous view that the advertised picture promised is in front of an apartment building literally 5 meters away and enhanced with the smell of the garbage beneath it. I decided to address the manager about the issues and he told to go eat food somewhere and leave him alone, matter of fact he put his hand on my shoulder and tried to be though and scare me. I told him to let go and he looked at me and laughed and said there is nothing that he will do and I can go ahead and keep barking. Hence, this is the first time I write a review. Unless you were planning to refer your mother in-law or the person who stole your parking spot, I won’t recommend it not even for free.

Pros: Nothing ,absolutely nothing !!!

Cons: Everything needs improvement!!!

Location: Horrible location ,not easily acceptable with cabs in a bad neirbehood

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Nice hotel if u wish to just use it to sleep

Room and hotel is newly refurbed, all clean. Rooms are small but clean Only thing is that we got no cleaners our entire trip inc no toilet rolls. Location is close to the high street, just a street back from the main road. The main road is a 5-8min walk to istiklal cadesi and taksim so nice and close. Not many staff present just a man that was pleasent but thats all

Disappointing Stay Near Taksim Square

It's hard to know where to begin with this hotel. On the positive, the hotel is well located near Taksim Square with loads of transportation, shopping, and restaurant options. The bathrooms are modern and although there aren't many English channels, the cable TV is quite good. There is a refrigerator as well as a kettle with free coffee and tea. I should have known I was in for trouble when I was told to pay cash at check-in before seeing the room. I booked a regular single room, but what I got was a dark and dusty double room in the basement with no AC or heat. The only ventilation was a window that opened directly onto the pavement outside. Not exactly a secure situation. The bathroom was nicely appointed but smelled of sewage. Although it states that there is housekeeping on the listing, there was no cleaning or replacement of towels the three nights I stayed. When I complained to the manager about the room all he could say was that he was full. He offered absolutely no compensation or any sympathy with the situation. I wouldn't mind the basement room if it was disclosed ahead of time and it was what I paid for. Couldn't even get an apology out of the guy. However, the night clerk was very kind and helpful. I regularly stay in 2 and 3 star hotels in the Taksim area and this has to be the worst experience I've ever had in Istanbul.

Pros: Well located near Taksim Square. Refrigerator, kettle, free coffee and teas.

Cons: Almost everything could be improved.

Location: Taksim is a great area to stay in Istanbul.
