I live in Ankara (I'm a foreigner) so I make trips to Istanbul very often and I've been to many hostels and hotels but Stories Apart is the place I make reservations every time I make the trip. It's honestly the best location and the rooms are modern and simple. You can find eveyrthing in the rooms and the bathroom is better than most high priced hotels like the Hilton or the Sheraton. The bathroom has a rain shower as all as a normal shower, the floors are clean and the hotel provded "goodies" are well displayed and of high quality. The sheets and pillows are very soft and clean. I'm in LOVE with this hotel and I never write these things but this hotel truly deserves it.

Room Tip: I've only stayed in the 90 euro room (which I think is the most basic and cheapest) but it has e...

We stayed at this wonderful boutique hotel in June as part of a trip to attend a wedding. Location is great 3 mins walk away fromthe lively Istiklal Caddesi. Hotel is on a very peaceful side street. We had a junior suite which was very spacious and exetremely clean. The bed is one of the most comfotable I have ever slept in and its huge. Lots of toiletries and useful additional like shoe cleaner & manicure kit in the bathroom and the hairdryer even had a diffuser. Very modern and styllish hotel. Rooms are cleaned everyday however there is no restaurant for breakfast or dinner etc. But you have so many great spots to eat within a short walking distance. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I highly recoommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for room with sea view 6th floor
