This is my second stay in The Tunel Residence. This hotel is simply lovely in every way.
The location is great: a few steps from Sishane tube station, Taksim St., and the bus station to most areas including the historical areas is right at the back of the hotel. The area around the hotel is quite while you are still a few steps away from the crowd. The Galata Tower is within walking distance from the hotel, and some rooms can see it very clear.
The Suits, both junior & Deluxe, are great. They are spacious, well furnished, well decorated, and the color themes are very comforting and relaxing. The kitchenette is very well equipped, neat and clean. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is neat with a great heavy hot water shower. Hot A/C is very good, had three units in living area, and one in bed room, so no chance to complain.
Although they do not have a room service at this hotel, but the "Big Chef" cafe/restaurant at the ground floor is superb. It's an International cuisine restaurant, very elegant, superb presentation, and a really really tasty food. It's a bit expensive, but it is worth it in every bite. They make great soups, and they bring any orders up to your room if you are not willing to go down.
The staff here is also very friendly and polite. They were very helpful and made every possible thing to please us.
My special heartly thanks go to Mr. Onur, front desk, who was really very helpful, always smiling, and was a very good English speaker.
I am really counting the days to go back to the relaxation of this hotel.
*** One more and last thing, rooms at this hotel are exactly like shown on internet.
