“Great hotel, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

My first impressions of this hotel weren't great as despite my booking, and notifying the hotel that we'd be arriving late, they'd given away our room on the first night. They recommended another hotel which turned out to be a 2 star and more expensive. I wasn't impressed but at 11pm, after hours of travelling there wasn't much I could do.

Despite the first night issue, we arrived the following morning at 10am and a room was given to us straight away.

The room was small but well equipped, was clean and modern. Yes, it can be noisy at night but you're right in the heart of Taksim and at the top of Istiklal street. A perfect location for everything you want to enjoy in Istanbul!

Both bedroom and bathroom were well equipped and perfect for a base camp!

The staff were friendly and helpful and we had no problem communicating with them and the Internet worked fine!

I would stay at this hotel again, if only they can guarantee that there'll be a room available on my arrival!

I stayed in Taksim Life for 4 nights in september 2011.
Location is fine, near the Taksim square. Internet is not working and they are lying about having a provider problem and getting it fixed 'today', which is not true.
I was there for business reasons, so this was a problem for me. Service is not good either.
What the worst part was, was that they told me that only the first night was cashed from my creditcard, they gave me a receipt and made me pay cash for the rest. And gave me a receipt for the total payment (including the creditcard payment). Returning home, it appeared they also cashed the remaining amount, from my creditcard. Of course I couldn't prove anything because the receipt with the total fee matched the credit card booking.
Very bad and unprofessional.

I stayed in taksim Life Hotel in June 2011. The hotel location was greaaat..1 minute walk from taksim square where you can get transportation via underground to many places and 1 minute walk from the famous Istiklal street. The hotel is small, yet very clean, nicely furnished. I believe the hotel is relatively new. The staff was really helpful. Don't expect a fancy breakfast, i think breakfast was very basic, but not of much concern to me. Overall, I believe the hotel was great and definately it'll be my choice if I visit Istanbul again.
