Two grown up female friends and colleagues traveling together, our purpose was a working weekend catching up with the Istanbul Biennial after a seminar with a larger group in a hotel in the Taksim area. Maywood was a good experience, we stayed in similar rooms in the same corridor for two nights, Friday to Sunday. Friendly welcome, working wi-fi everywhere (we experienced erratic services in other Istanbul hotels), good breakfast and a central location was important to our choice. We appreciated the peaceful atmosphere and the sea-gull wake-up call from the sea-side nearby. The location is central both to transportation (the tram is essential to move around, taxis are stuck in traffic jams) and historical sights, as well as the Grand Bazar, the spice market and many of the historical sights of Istanbul.
Hardwood floors, very good beds and clean and fresh decoration with a slightly kitchy Turkish baroque feel to it, added to the experience. The only downside was the temperature and air quality system. The air conditioning was not effective, and it was not an alternative to turn it off, as the windows only could be opened very little.
Even so, I plan to return to Maywood for a stay with my family later!
