    Fabulous

    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.

    Superb

    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.

    Fabulous

    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.

    Very good

    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.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    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.

    Very good

    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

    Fabulous

    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).
