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.

Stayed there with young kids for 3 nights and then came back again after a week. Location is quiet and ideal for family living. Not many happenings around but there is a supermarket and bottle shop within 350m. Staff is very professional and always at your help. Laundry is available with nominal charges. Breakfast served at the room was enough and healthy. Room is big and spacious. Only one suggestion is to put proper cloth curtains instead of blinds at the room. Sunlight peeps in very early morning and disturbs the sleep.

We came to Istanbul for a business trip and choose Chakra for our accommodation as the property came with a good deal which compensated the transportation cost as the hotel is a few minutes from public transportation options. Our room was very clean and the service of the staff is excellent. they are kind and punctual all the time. If you need for food or beverages, they can order it for you. The room was spacious and cleverly designed for a short term stay. Our room came with a kitchenette and a boiler with free water which are beautiful amenities after a tiring day in hectic Istanbul traffic. i loved the TV which rotates to the sleeping area and the couch. Most beautiful part was the cats climbing up to the properties emergency stairs and asking for food :) it was awesome! thank you guys and hope to see you again in the future...

We chose these apartments because they were close to my son’s apartment but will go back because of so much else. We were upgraded to a spacious, tastefully decorated room with excellent a/c, a fridge, kettle etc. We only had breakfast once as were were meeting others in a cafe. It was absolutely fine but cafes in Istanbul do such fabulous breakfasts at such cheap prices that we were happy to go out. The staff could not be more helpful. We asked about a nearby place to buy wine and minutes later they had someone deliver to our room. I’m returning to Istanbul in August and hope to return

We loved chakra suites. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They upgraded us, let us have a late check out and having breakfast delivered to the room every morning was fantastic. We really loved the studio we stayed in. The only downsides of this hotel, as others have said, is it can be a little tricky to find the first time and it isn't close to a metro stop. The sign is on a side wall so you won't see it if you are coming up the hill towards the hotel. We drove by it 3 times before we actually saw it. The attached picture shows you the front of the hotel. Look for the big metal fire escape and the little sign. There is a bus stop somewhat close to the hotel, but that is one more transfer to pay for before getting on the metro, and the bus system is a bit trickier to use than the metro for the average non turkish speaking tourist. This is the only reason I took off a star. The actual hotel stay was fantastic.

We spent there few days. Place is excellent, I think that Besiktas is the best district to stay! Rooms are very clean and modern. They clean everyday. Young staff from reception is very plesant and they're always smiling. It's very close to center, where is a lot of bars and restaurants...definetly we tried the best kebap ever! Prices are reasonable. There is so much to do, we will definetly come back ! Teşekkür ederim.

We had one night in Istanbul with my wife and sister in law after a month of travelling and wanted Besiktas location so it was close to shopping, such as Istinya Park, Zorlu, Nisantasi & Cevahir but didn't want to spend too much. We saw pictures of this place and thought nice... but pictures as everyone knows when they travel mean nothing until you actually arrive and check in to a room. We were all pleasantly surprised! We had the room above the reception, room 6 & were very happy with how modern and spacious it was!! Very much an apartment suite with a little stairway balcony New York style. The room amenities was nice with a stove and small kitchen. The shower/bathroom was clean and roomy. The breakfast, although very simple with breads, boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumber, yogurt, cheeses and olives was another surprise... bread was hot and fresh and it all tasted nice, just hitting the spot. The reception and staff in general very very nice and accommodating. We didn't fly out until later in the evening and they allowed us to check out at 2 pm and then after another request at 3 pm without any additional charge. The location is quite hard to find and every taxi driver had to be guided by GPS (either theirs or mine if they didn't have one). Otherwise, it's only a short 10 minutes or so walk down to the centre of besiktas. The only real problem we had was the noise of other guests. We could literally hear conversations (past midnight) and what we believed to be some flatulence emanating from the neighboring room! We woke up to two feral cats having a fight on the balcony against our window and saw the remnants of one their feces and urine splayed along the floor. Otherwise, it's in a great location with very friendly staff and very affordable rates. Would definitely come back here.

I relied on the reviews and booked for 6 nights. I arrived at the hotel, I wanted to stay in Levent but since it was fully booked, I had to stay the first two nights at Besiktas location at a higher price, had to pay the difference which is fine. So location is almost impossible to find if you are taking a taxi, I did not like the breakfast, first day, they never brought it anyway, after I reminded them they came as I was stepping out to go to work so I left without having breakfast, second day, breakfast was less than average, they bring it to the room and it's cold! I personally didn’t like it. Internet didn't work the first night, they had to bring the IT person multiple times, had to go down and work from reception. I went to Levent location hoping it will be better, it was terrible, I did not feel safe as a girl in that area, I also could hear people talking on the street and the cars all night long, very bad location, I can’t describe it further so it took me a day to find another hotel and to negotiate leaving early, the receptionist came up at night asking me why I want to leave because the owner is concerned so they knew I wanted to go and they agreed, I checked out first thing in the morning, I was waiting for a long time for an invoice at the reception and after I complained, they politely said I can go and they promised to send me the invoice by email. I got the invoice and I saw a 6 nights charge instead of 4! I contacted them again and that's when I had the worst experience, they answered saying they charged in advance that's why they can't refund but they are happy to offer a complementary stay for the two nights! I obviously didn’t agree because I simply wanted the money back and I wouldn’t stay there again, I filed a dispute with my bank, it's still ongoing and they are telling the bank that there is no proof for cancellation, that's basically not telling the truth! I called the owner multiple times, she was always unavailable although she was always there when I booked, I left a message for her to call back and she never did, she left me with no option but to share this review!

Well this one is hard to review for me. We stayed at chakra for 4 nights, of which one night was in the penthouse suite. We liked some things and didn't like some other things about the appartments, so i have mixed feelings. We booked this appartment based on the reviews here on tripadvisor, so it was somewhat disappointing for a appartment with 5 out of 5 score. The appartments are nicely decorated and very spacious, especially the petnhouse is very big and has a great view over Istanbul. They could do a better job at the cleaning of the appartments though. Especially the details seem to escape the attention of the cleaners, for example the shower drain or ventilation. It's not that the appartment is dirty, it looks clean on the surface, but as i said the details. The other thing we didn't like is the location, the appartment is right up on a hill. We like besiktas, that's why we wanted a hotel in besiktas, but this hotel is quite far from the centre of besiktas and you have to walk up hill for 10-15 minutes. This is not a good feeling after a day of walking in Istanbul. It's too close to take a taxi (they look at you with hate when they know it will be a small trip) and too far to walk comfortably. So would we go here next time? I think the answer is no, but the appartments are nice and not badly priced. Just not for us. (i woudl like to give the appartment a 3,5 score, but unfortunately that is not possible) Pro's: - Service, very good and personal service at the lobby - Appartments are spacious and great view from penthouse Con's: - Cleanliness - Location
