Apparently we were the very first guests to stay at this small elegant hotel, so everything was perfectly new and clean. The interior design and decor is neat and simple with a Turkish touch (I don't know why small rooms need a big widescreen TV, but that's probably just me). The street outside is busy and there's lots of noise (live music) and activities at night, but fortunately it seems to stop around 12-01 am. Apart from the noise, the location is perfect. It's next to Cihangir and locals live and hang out here. You will need to bring your sneakers as the area is hilly and worth discovering by foot. The hotel staff is relaxed and attentive. It was my birthday during our stay and the staff noticed and showed up at our room with a delicious strawberry cake (with burning candles).

Nb. On our way back home to the airport we had a terrible experience with our taxi driver who 1. took us on a detour. 2 nearly crashed on the highway because of fast and aggressive driving (the idiot was going 140 km pr hour + zig-zaging between lanes and other vehicles). Upon returning safely home I reported the incident to the hotel and encouraged them to 'screen' taxi drivers in the future when they book taxis for their guests. After two days the hotel management reported back, that they would immediately stop working with the involved taxi company and start working with a different one.

We booked this hotel very late and we were a little bit worried because we could not find any reviews on the internet. We had a huge surprise upon arrival: the hotel is located at 2min walk of the Istiklal street, it is brand new and the staff is simply fantastic. We were traveling with our 1 year old son and we had a room which was big enough to accommodate a cot and still feel spacious. There is a small kitchenette which is very useful to warm up milk for the baby and have a coffee before starting the day. They also have wireless internet which works perfectly well. A special plus for the beds which were particularly comfortable! We highly recommend this place and will certainly go back next time we are in town.

Fantastic location right next to Istiklal street with places to eat and visit everywhere. We felt really safe and happy in the apartment and were able to step out and into the hustle and bustle.
