Taksim Life Hotel has a very convenient location right off Taksim Square where shuttle busses leave for both airports. The Sabihe Gokcen airport shuttle bus leaves every 30 minutes and costs 12 TL. The hotel has modern rooms with all facilities. We found that the sound isolation was quite good. At present there is no traffic behind the hotel as they are working on the road. Breakfast is good with some lovely home made marmelades. The only point of improvement for me would be the tea which is served from a big pot already prepared, therefore the tea is too black. The fitness is a bit small but in the end we did not even have time to use it because there is so much to do in Istanbul. What should be improved is that the reservation price was in Euros and that you have to pay upon arrival (although they have your creditcard details) in TL with their exchange rate which was obviously not as good as elsewhere. There are busses that go to other parts of the city from Taksim Square, or you can take the funicular down to the ferry port or tramway. Once you know how it works, the location is very convenient. Get an Istanbul card at the kiosk on the corner, they will also give you back your deposit upon departure when you give the card back.
