It's location is excellent right beside taksim and istiklal road. The area it's located in is very safe and quiet. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff are very friendly and cooperative, we changed our reservation (canceled a room) with no problems.
Well the reception space was small and poorly designed. That is the only comment. The place is well-located, clean rooms, friendly and cooperative staff.
Very central and the airport bus dropped us very nearby. Hotel comfortable and clean. Reasonably quiet even though it was a Friday night. Beffet breakfast good.
The room was very clean and comfortable. All the facilities worked perfectly and people were very nice there. We got free fruits as a gift for the last evening we stayed. They also provided luggage storage room to keep our luggage safely.
The location - just a few yards from the Metro station. Restaurants and money exchange shops are nearby. Cross the road and you're on to Taksim square - about a 100 yards from the hotel. Isteklal street for the shopping is also very close. Staff was pleasant even if they did not go out of their way to help. Rooms and toilets were clean and fittings were nice.
We wanted a late check-out since I was travelling with a toddler but they only allowed an extra hour. They didn't mind us using their lobby and restrooms for killing some time though and kept our bags when we went out for the day. Also if your room is facing the street, it will be a bit noisy. We didn't mind the noise though.
riva hotel is very good hotel but there is bad thing for riva hotel there is no swimming pool in riva hotel
Helpfull staff, clean rooms, good breakfast ,good Internet signal,quiet atmosphere.
English language is the main problem ,fair room view
Good location. It was quiet, too. The stuff was nice and helpful.
The lights when getting off the elevator in the evening would not turn on. The room was bit impersonal; moreover, it did not look as good as it appeared in the picture of single room on the net.
It was cheaper than many nearby hotels and the staff was friendly and helpful
The facilities in the room like tea pot, drinks like tea, free water etc were mot there and the room was too small.
A simple great hotel without overestimated services in a great location and excellent value. I highly recommend Riva Hotel Taksim
My friends wanted to come upstairs to see the room, and they did not allow that..
very friendly personel , excellent service , great location , bus to the airports 50 M from hotel.
Super clean hotel in an excellent location. The staff was perfect and spoke Englısh. A 5 mınute walk to the metro and Taksım. The room was very modern and well laıd out. Hıghly recommended.
Bed was too hard for me and ı actually lıke hard beds
Service, location and price is good enough for a hotel in i̇stanbul. However, do not expect too much just because you paid more than 110 Euros. You pay most of it just to accomodate in i̇stanbul.
Poor sound isolation inside the hotel
The location is very good and the rooms are big and cleen
only its location
i booked 1 dbl bedroom and 2 trpl bedrooms they gave me 3 dbl bedrooms with 2 extra bed saying that the triple bedrooms are booked!!! so i payed for the rate of triple bedroom !!!
it was a good balance between facilities, location and price
the room where I stayed had a blocked window, meaning that in hlf a meter it was a wall, (it was 3 bed room).
