I feel sure that I booked a room with a bathtub, but apparently they have none. At the moment two buildings are being demolished in front of the building, which makes the view from the window like a demolition site. Very close to Taksim Square, and hence to the upper end of Istiklal Caddesi, which is a good location. I...

Other than that the rooms were cleaned every day and towels were changed. Breakfast was good...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
