After reading some reviews on TripAdvisor my boyfriend and I were quite wary of booking a room here for our five night stay in Istanbul earlier this month. After doing our research we booked but specified a room on a higher floor (as others online had advised). We were on the fifth floor, right at the front overlooking the many bars and clubs that surround the hotel, but the noise was not a problem at all. The latest we went to bed was around 2am and never once did we have any issue - particular as the bed was one of the comfiest we'd ever experienced!
The surrounding area is very busy with bars and restaurants, and as it is right off the extremely busy Istiklal Caddesi there is a continuous flow of people and life. This was ideal for us. It was a city break and we wanted to see the city ... by the second day we felt at home and part of the place! Location is excellent in other ways with Taksim Square a five minute walk one way (Big Bus Tours of the city and also airport shuttles) and Galata / the Tunel five minutes in the other direction. From here it is extremely easy to get around. We didn't use a taxi / bus once apart from our first day when we took a Big Bus tour to take in the sights and get our bearings.
The Staff were also excellent, young and friendly, giving us advice on where to go and what to explore. WiFi was free but mildly temperamental, other than that I can't recommend this place enough if you really want to experience Istanbul.
