Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful experience at The Soul Hotel. We are two friends who travelled to Istanbul for the first time. We stayed in a double/twin room on the 5th floor which we found spacious enough for both of us. The room had no view as it was overlooking a courtyard but was very pleasant and quiet.

Our room had all the amenities we needed and was very comfortable and clean. During our stay of 7 nights the housekeeping ensured our room and ensuite bathroom were immaculately cleaned on a daily basis and sheets were changed thrice. We were also able to borrow an iron and board for our entire stay.

The included breakfast was great with a selection of breads, cereals, fruits, teas, coffees, a variety of spreads as well as the option of eggs made to our preference. We also made use of room service for dinner one evening which we enjoyed.

Every staff member we encountered, from the reception to the kitchen and housekeeping staff were friendly, delightful and eager to help.
Special thanks to mr. Murat, mr. Muhsin, mr. Yasin, mr. Onur & ms. Lala! They went over and beyond to help make our first visit in Istanbul enjoyable by advising us, helping us book taxis, tours and activities as well as dinner recommendations and making reservations for us.

We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Istanbul, especially for first time visitors due to its great central location and how easy it is to get around. We will definitely stay at The Soul Hotel again whenever we return to Istanbul!

Herkese çok teşekkürler. Görüşürüz!

It was an amazing place. The room was sparking clean, choices for refreshing shower or pampering your skin in a bath after wondering around the city. We've enjoyed the morning's breakfasts of choice, then chatting with friendly staff. They all ready to give you advises of what to see and do on the day.
The hotel location place you near to places where you can eat and drink while listening to live music, but also to a quickly reach of transportation to visit famous places.
Thank you very much to all the staff there, but especially to Lala. Hope our discussions gave you ideas to improve even ore the quality and comfort of this place
Thank you for my birthday 🎂, we hope to see you again

The hotel is located in a very, very central place, close to Taksim square and Istiklal Cd by walking. Very clean, nice smelling, very cozy, and a nice place overall. Very helpful staff!!! They were assisting us all the time with calling taxis, or any other situation in which we needed a translation or help for anything. There is always water on the house and the beds and pillows felt like sleeping on a cloud.

The breakfast was very nice, tasty, and fresh every day. There are two super cute cats that give you company at the breakfast place. Also, there is room service until 11 pm which was also very affordable and tasty! Would recommend 100%! .

The neighborhood is full of little cute stores and antique shops. A supermarket is within a walking distance of 5 mins, where you can pay with a card if you do not have any cash.

Thank you everybody for everything!

A small, cozy hotel. The room was very nice and clean, with everything you could need. Even though the room had a street view and at some point there was a work site outside our window, we couldn't hear anything. The staff was really helpful at any time and the breakfast was really good and varied. The location permitted us to go by foot to all the important sites and you also have a lot of cafés in the area. I would come back here for sure.

Very nice hotel in the wonderful neighborhood. Very friendly staff, speaking fluently both English and Russian. Especially Lala was very warm, nice and extremely helpful with everything: helped to buy Istanbul card, gave directions, called a taxi to the airport etc etc
The location is very nice. Would definitely recommend staying in Beyoglu. Walking distance to all the main sightseeing spots, however a bit more discreet and less touristy. Not too crowded. The hotel is surrounded by many wonderful local craft shops, vintage stores, bars, cafes etc
The hotel is small, but charming and has everything necessary. Very beautiful rooms. My room on the 4th floor was really nice and cosy with 2 windows and a street view. Pleasant design, beautiful calm colors, nice mix of antique and contemporary furniture, great bed, beautiful crisp bedsheets and towels and bathrobes. All the details, like a cotton lace bed-throw and the porcelain soap holders in the bathroom really make the difference. So does the little teapot and variety of teas in the room.
The breakfast in the courtyard was good. A lot of different choices, both sweet and savory. Variety of differently cooked eggs, pancakes, waffles, pasty, cheeses, yoghurts, fruits and anything you could think of.
Very nice place to rest and discover Istanbul. Highly recommend.

The place is wonderful: design, people,service. It is located in beautiful street of European style between Galata tower and Istiklal street.

The hotel it brand new, made in European style with gorgeous details: real orchids in corridor,air cleaner, aromatizer on each floor. Cold welcome drinks and wet towels help you after long trip.

We have our honeymoon and manager Lala (who speaks russian really good) make our staying here unforgettable.

The room is very clean, modern with interesting bathroom( it doesn't have a wall, but glass partition). All bathroom set and cosmetics is inclufed. We would like recommend to add hangers for towels inside. That is all, really!

The manager is at the lobby 24/7.

Breakfast is delicious.

Many thanks to the whole team. People, you are awsome!

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights in November. The Soul is a classy, modern, small, boutique hotel in an excellent location near to Taksim metro station or a short walk downhill to the modern tram at Tophane station. Istiklal Street, Taksim Square and the Galata tower are all within easy walking distance. The hotel is in a really lovely neighbourhood with stunning architecture, lots of cafes, small restaurants, bars and antique shops. It was bustling with activity during the day and quiet at night. Our room on the 5th floor was clean and modern, well appointed and beautifully furnished with a modern bathroom and a spacious shower. There is free wi-fi, 24 hour front desk, room service and the hotel offers a currency exchange service for its guests. All of the staff were welcoming, friendly and engaging. We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel couldn’t be in a better location for exploring the City. Overall, we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again or recommend.

I have tried couple of hotel options in Istanbul but they can not be compared the THE SOUL and one of these options was a five stars hotel.

The rooms are unique and luxurious, the location of the hotel is close to public transportation and Istiklal street, and you can discover hidden gems if you decide to wander the alleys around the hotel.

Everything was absolutely comfortable, they definitely made my stay more enjoyable, I even got my PCR arranged and done at the hotel.

Hats off to the team, each and everyone one of them :)

We didn't know much about this hotel when we initially booked it but we are so glad we did. This hotel met and exceeded all our expectations! The staff was friendly and always trying to find ways to help. They even went to our room and brought 5 bottles of water when we forgot to buy some. Breakfast was delicious (you have to try the menemen). One thing we love was the ceiling in the rooms and the bathroom. The tiles on walls, decorations and the love that went into the interior design of this hotel was very impressive.

The location is also perfect, less than 7 minutes away from good coffee shops and restaurants as well as good walking distance to bars and shops.

All in all, we are definitely staying here again.

The Soul Istanbul is a great place to stay. Being a solo traveller , safety is paramount for me. The location is close to major attractions and night life is amazing in and around this area. Rooms are nicely decorated with poster bed and white walls , washrooms have blue tiles and makes your experience a unique one. The staff are extremely friendly and made me feel at home.

Thank you The Soul ... you touched my heart.
