The problem with promise hotel and its manager/owner is that it just promise and apparently doesnt offers anything...I would never ever recommend for someone to stay in that particular dodgy hotel...There are hundreds in this area you can choose but not hotel promise if you do not want to ruin ur visit....

The worse experience in my life! The owner would try to over charge you and try to sell you a "box" room in the price of a 5 star hotel. When we arrived he was trying to convince us that our reservation was canceled! He show us a room that had ppl in and it then took him 3 min to clean!!! You can Imagine the hygiene of that place

My husband and I stayed here for a few days in April. The hotel is located very close to Taksim Square and the Istiklal Caddesi, which is a pedestrian area with tons of shops,restaurant,clubs and bars.I chose this hotel based on reviews,location and price.

We booked a standard double room which is extremely small.The bathroom is TINY,TINY,TINY. The standard double room is probably not a good idea for larger people,they might find it extremely uncomfortable.The room was clean enough,although the blanket was kind of dingy and I found it suspicious....so I took it off the bed. Unfortunately,room service kept putting it back on every day. The sheets underneath were clean,though.

The reception staff is very helpful and nice.They will try to sell you an upgrade to the deluxe room which they offered to us for an additional EUR 20 a day.But since we only needed a place at a convenient location to sleep,shower and leave our stuff in we kept the smaller room.We decided we'd rather spend the money on good food.

Also,if you are sensitive to street noise,this hotel won't be a good choice.There's loud music coming from the bars and clubs until around 2:00AM...after that it gets a little more quiet.We didn't mind that so much,but others might find it annoying.

The rooms have safes for an additional charge per day.

Management was totally upcooperative and the room was slightly smaller than a closet. With so many awesome hotels so close by, there is literally no reason to stay here. Oh, and if you do decide to stay, be sure that everything is completely paid for in advance as he tried to raise my room rate TWICE over the course of two nights.

This hotel just a few minutes from the lively bar and restaurant area of Taksim is just excellent value. Slightly dodgy reception area and if you are coming from the "wrong" direction you even at first think "where have I ended up?" A few strange carachters in nearby streets, but not in a way that we felt unsafe. we only saw this area as it is a bit of a challenge to find the hotel at first but then you realise you are 1 street away from the lovely athmosphere of Taksim. We were very happy with our choice and would stay here again but not for more than 2 nights as the room is very compact (and don't expect a view from your window). Suprising how large the bathroom is in comparison. Clean! Great little hotel!
