Cosy stylish hotel in practical location

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: Restaurant, views, room design, welcome.
Location: Many restaurants overlooking the Bosphorus are a short taxi ride away e.g. at Bebek. Otherwise it's a central location close to a main Metro station.
Taksim Square is kind of the Charing Cross or Marble Arch of Istanbul, so it's as convenient a location as you can find outside the rather touristy Sultanahmet and Golden Horn areas. The Gezi is close to a number of much larger international business hotels, so you can use their bars and restaurants, but I prefer the cosier and more intimate feel of this boutique hotel. It has a pretty good restaurant and bar of its own too, popular with locals. The views of the Bosphorus are across a bus depot in the near distance but are still pretty impressive, the more so the higher you go in the hotel. The rooms are a bit older now, but still a pleasant, warm, welcoming design and comfortable. The Gezi Bosphorus is a good all rounder and a repeat visit for me whenever I spend a couple of days touring Istanbul after a business trip, and I always feel at ease here. Quite good value too.

Lobby is a bit crammed. Some of the rooms are below lobby level . The rooms with Bosphorus view is amazing.No swimming pool though. The staff are friendly and helpful

Easy to find

Posted Aug 22, 2017
The Hotel is across the street from Taksim Gezi park, a short walk to Taksim Square, close to the Metro station. Staff were friendly, helpful and well spoken. The room was not huge but very comfortable. I would recommend this to friends or business associates.

Outstanding

Posted Jul 25, 2017
Pros: affordable prices, spacious rooms and extremely professional friendly employees
Location: The hotel location is excellent, few minutes walking distance from the metro station, taksim square and the shopping area
I don't usually write reviews but you can't just ignore the outstanding level of service this hotel and it's staff have provided specially their front desk employee Mustafa The hotel location is perfect, walking distance to the shopping area, authentic food and even the metro to reach further areas Too tired to go out? The food and the portions are excellent and most importantly, very affordable compared to restaurants outside the hotel The rooms are spacious and perfectly maintained I will definitely stay in this hotel next time I visit Istanbul

Small, modern, practical, western,pleasant.

Posted Jun 28, 2017
I stayed at the top floor for the weekend and enjoyed the comfort, the amazing view to the Bosphorus, the walks around Taksim square and the whole city. My experience was positive overall. The ground floor bar-restaurant was very pleasant with nice food and surround easy rock-jazz-lounge music. Valet parking available for my rent car. From there easy to go everywhere.
