We were hasseled many times around the area, istakal street was very dangerous, we were followed and harassed many times, ripped off by taxi drivers many times. Even taxis we took from the hotel. Room was clean but smelled of smoke even though we asked for a non smoking room. The hotel would not let us bring guests into the room either. If I ever went back to instanbul I would start in the ortokoy or bebek areas which are much nicer and safer (these are where are the very nice restaurants and nightlife are located).
