We spent 4 nights in Fullhouse boutique, we had a suite with a tiny balcony (that is a separate room & living room + a small kitchen). The hotel looks more like a tiny building with apartments rather than a hotel. It’s clean, beds are very comfy & rooms are spacious (beside the bathroom), if you’re looking for more than these 3 criteria then this place won’t suit you. In comparison to Taksim District, this is a very good choice, it’s central (5min walking to Istiklal Avenue & to tons of restaurants), right next doors there are many small shops selling all kinds of snacks, water etc. The street itself looks a bit weird but it’s totally safe & luckily even if the hotel is located in a very steep street, it’s on the upper side yet, ladies beware with your high heels! Seriously for this district it’s an excellent choice. Breakfast is fine, not the best buffet I’ve seen but I can’t complain as there are all basic things (you can even ask for fresh made omelets) & is included in the price so it saves you time in the morning.
Nour was a very nice & extremely helpful young man. He speaks fluent English & Arabic. He was kind enough to arrange for us many transfers & made reservations, plus his advices were a big help, but at times when we didn’t find him (because of shift hours) we couldn’t get any help, as the other young man never welcomed us & doesn’t even speak English & seriously is impolite because he wouldn’t even return the hello, & at night time he used to chat on MSN instead of being helpful!!! He even made a mistake on the reservation for my friends & they had to change the hotel to the Fullhouse Residence (right next doors) for their last night. For the Residence my friends said it had even better rooms (except for the bathroom that was smaller) but the problem is that they had no elevator.
A lot of people complained about the noise, seriously it was no big deal, & in Takssim you really can’t complain about noise because the whole neighborhood is noisy.
For Takssim I’d for sure recommend this hotel, but if you like luxury & shopping you might be better off at Ossmanbey neighborhood, then again if you’re more interested in visits I’d say Sultanahmet District is the best (home for the most attractions) & if you’re looking for shopping only, Fatih District would suit you better.
