I really enjoyed this hotel. The guy at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfy, the shower esp was wonderful. I only stayed one night so I really can't say much about the area other than that it was quiet and the hotel was close to Taksim sq which was very quiet and empty the morning I was there. The only problem I had was that when I arrived at the airport (at 12:45am) the driver was NOT waiting with the other people picking up travelers. I had emailed several times to make sure they had my confirmation and to make sure I knew where the hotel rep would meet me because (as I told them) I would not have my phone to call if there were problems. After an hour a total stranger was kind enough to loan me their phone at the airport so that I could call the hotel. The hotel immediately contacted their rep at the airport who then came out of nowhere and without comment ushered us to the driver waiting outside. No apology or explanation was every given. I get that if I was more savvy I could have figured out the pay phones there or something... but I paid for hassle free pick up and I didn't get it.
