We stayed at 4th floor apartment for 5 nights with two kids, 3 and 6. Very much impressed with views, room and helpful staff. Ideal for family as you can relax after a busy day out with ample space. Breakfast is fairly standard and you get in the room but can't ask for more with 120 euros a night. This summer we were in Paris and rented a 4th floor apartment with no lift in the building. After that experience it was a big "phew" after seeing a lift here, though small but works.
Tram station "Tophane" is a five minutes walk down the road, though you will burn some calories on way back as steep climb. Taksim is twenty minutes walk ( with kids) up street. We came to Taksin through Havas bus station and walked down to hotel as it is the first street left to Istiklal which comes straight down to hotel.
Tram line is the one which connects it to Kabatas ( Dolmabache Palace), Sultan Ahmet ( Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Grand Bazar)and Eminou for all the sea routes so very convenient place. You can find few nice resturants and coffee shops five minutes away from hotel as you walk towards Taksim. "Firdus" appeared to be a popular one at nights. Coffee shop next to it is worth trying for sweets and baklawa.More
