Stayed here for 5 nights attending a conference at the nearly ICC Istanbul. Rooms are new and modern with coffee making facility. During check-in there were 5 rooms booked in their system for us although we only booked 4. Then they wanted to charge us double the room rate that we booked. Check-in ended up taking more than 40 minutes.
Location is very good. Walk up the hill for 5 minutes then you're at the main street. Lots if restaurant and shops that cater more for locals. If you turn right and walk another 15 minutes, you will come to Taksim Square and then to the left is the beginning of walking street, Istiklal Cadessi.
Would stay here again for a conference since it's only 15 minutes walk to ICC.

Geographically, the location shouldn't be that bad, but the hotel is on a street with no sidewalk and next to a petrol station.
It’s a dodgy central area with car yards, shady characters. In order to get anywhere you have to walk up a massive, massive hill; esp to the main shopping area (which is close BTW) or the nearest Metro station.

The rooms are nice, but the Wi-Fi is drops ever so often. The people are nice and the breakfast is decent, but in the evening the service is slow.

Pros: Nice spacious rooms, cleaned daily. Most staff are friendly however not all can understand English

The plus side was the free shuttle to Taskim every hour which saved walking the steep hill.

Nothing special to complain about.

I couldn't agree more with previous reviewer "fblume" that the hotel is reasonable but its location is weird, just next to a petrol station with steep hill to get to anywhere. The room was clean, serviced daily and free wifi although disconnected too often. The food and breakfast wasn't bad but no proper view from rooms. Staff were courteous and helpful. The plus side was the free shuttle to Taskim every hour which saved walking the steep hill. It was however very close to the conference centre which is why we booked this hotel. Perhaps one factor that impacted me most was my stay at JM Marriott in Ankara the night before I went to Crown Plaza. Anyone who goes from a 5 star hotel such as Marriott to this hotel will inevitably find this very average. Nothing special to complain about.

Geographically, the location shouldn't be that bad. But this is on the street with no sidewalk and in order to get anywhere you have to walk up a massive, massive hill. The rooms are nice, but the Wi-Fi is spotty as is the television reception. The people are nice and the breakfast is decent, but in the evening the service is slow. They can't really help the location, which is a shame. Otherwise, I would give the hotel four stars. But for the price, you can definitely do better at another place that is just as comfortable and definitely more convenient. I stayed here for conference that was at the ICC, just across from the Hilton. it was a real hassle to try to get anywhere. They can get you a cab, but to try to walk somewhere takes a lot of effort. Because of the location, I would not recommend the hotel.

Background info:
Stayed here as part of the neon tour.
5 nights before start of tour.

Pros:
Nice spacious rooms.
Rooms Cleaned daily.
Modern hotel.
Gym/pool/hair dresser/ massage available.
Most staff are friendly.

Cons:
Really bad smell in corridor.
Cards to room didn't work 4 out of the five nights. Changed it each time at reception.
Restaurant is very very expensive, 18ltr of two 330ml Coca's but food quality is above average.
Location is in dodgy central, car yards, shady characters and a very steep climb up the road to reach main shopping strip.
Staff at restaurant short changed me with money on many occasions and never seem to have change.
Some staff are putting on a kind face and you can see its fake when they are yelling at each other.

Verdict:
Don't stay as a family as you will be playing chicken every day crossing road.
Do NOT stay here as a single women. Trust me on this one. Especially if you are a foreigner.
