“Well located , horrible sewage smell, one rude receptionist”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

The hotel is well located. literally on taksim square.

Breakfast is good ( only the orange juice is water)

There is a direct bus from the airport that leaves you 2 blocks from the hotel.

The room ( 52) had horrible sewage smell coming out of the sink, the shower and the toilet seat. It woke me up at night and literally had to close the doors of the bathroom. For the price paid ( not cheap at all for Istanbul) it is not acceptable.

Internet rooter was in and off , had to call few times to start it.

The staff is generally friendly ( breakfast, bar and groom) , however one of the receptionist has treated us in a very rude way.We asked where the convention center was , he said ' convention center what' 'it does not mean anything' I was a bit shocked and left! Also this was booked and paid before hand by a travel agency and when I arrived they asked me to pay again, luckily enough I had printed the voucher so bear that in mind if you go there.

Room Tip: In terms of noise I thought it was well insulated, I was on the 5th floor which considerably reduced...

Stayed two nights and it deserves the five star reviewers have awarded, for the location and cleanliness. I got a very good discounted rate. The breakfast could have been improved and complimentary water provided every day. These are minor quibbles.

This is a new hotel, very convenient for business purposes. The rooms are not very big, but spacious enough. Wifi works very good hotel, "busy" even for an hour. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. 'S ICC congress center and nearby area is really very close to many restaurants and shopping. Despite being in a busy neighborhood, the rooms are very isolated from the outside. Breakfast was simple, very Turkish style. Overall, I found this hotel to be better than I expected. 'll Definitely be back.

Located just meters away from Taksim Square, Senator Taksim is a perfect and affordable choice if you´re looking for good quality in the perfect location. Staff is friendly and helpful and rooms are excellent. All rooms face a street (front or back) so you won´t feel in a can even if you choose the cheapest room. Breakfast is ok but it´s not what you expect from a four stars hotel.
