“awful!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Bad location, very scary after dark, rooms and sheets were really dirty, and with cockroaches to company you, staff semm to not care about anything at all, no need to say mostly they dont understand anything you say, in english, they speak more persian. internet only in lobby. I wouldn't go there again , even for free.

You are looking to that hotel? I suggest that immediately you look aside. I will do a quick facts and figures session. The personnel does not speak English. Some of the rooms do not have windows. The accommodation is announced at 14:00 but we got it 1 hour later after waiting from 8 in the morning. The room is 2 times bigger than the bed. There is blue fungus on the bathroom sink. I believe I have made my point. Just pick another one if you would like to enjoy Istanbul. Even a hostel will do in comparison.

Room Tip: If you must be in this one pick a higher floor.

This is hotel you should never visit. I don't recommend to even be in that part of town, it is really dirty. Main word is 'Cargo transport', so you understand what part of town it is. Hotel is old, dirty and rusty. We were lucky to get clean sheets but bathroom was so dirty although usable. Also there are cockroaches all over (and they are quite big). furniture is old and falling apart. Walls were painted during Kemal Ataturk and curtains are from time Suleiman the Magnificent. If you try to close the door a bit harder, ceiling might fall on you. Skip the breakfast for your own safety. That way you'll miss a bit cheese, eggs, tea and if you are REALLY lucky you might get some bread. Also we found out that you can rent a room for only couple of hours...
Bottom line: those three stars hotel has are just shooting stars.

This has the be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Firstly, the man at reception didn't even bother greeting me when I arrived, he was rude and seemed to not care about his job at all. Furthermore he was chewing gum and smoking at the reception desk! Then, in my room I discovered a cigarrette burn in my bedcover. The sheets were stained. There was also damp on the shower curtain and on the ceiling of the bathroom. When I asked the man on reception to change the cover he replied "If you want" and I said, "Well of course I do!" His manner was atrocious as was the state of this place. I wouldn't even call it a hotel. Don't even waste your time, energy or money staying here. Unfortunately this was a last resort for me.

Room Tip: Do not stay here. Choose somewhere else.
