212 Istanbul Suites
Ranked #21 of 1,240 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 11 March 2013

I cannot say enough about this space and the wonderful people who manage it. Having an apartment like this to come back to each evening or just as a general home base is priceless. It is chic and spacious (three friends traveled and felt perfectly comfortable), and enjoys a wonderful cafe/eatery on the first floor called Bunk. I love the neighborhood--just off of Istiklal Cadessi near Taksim Square, which leaves you ample options for entertainment and convenience if you need to grab anything at the last minute.

Berkay, the manager of 212 Suites, is warm, welcoming and extremely accommodating. He really felt like family during our trip.

This bijou apartment offered all the home comforts you could want when on vacation. It's situated in an area of Istanbul where there are a number of trendy bars, restaurants and cafes not forgetting shopping, that's if shopping is your thing. It's close to all the main attractions in istanbul but with just enough distance to escape the hustle and bustle of this thriving city. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there mainly because of the home comforts i experienced while staying at the apartment. It was my first time in istanbul and having a warm and cosy place to stay in what was said to be one of the coldest seasons of the year was an absolute bonus :-)

We stayed at 212 Istanbul Suites for one week and really enjoyed the experience of having our own apartment in the city. Everything about 212 Istanbul Suites exceeded our expectations, including the hospitality of Berkay and Mehmet. The location is unbeatable for its proximity to Istanbul's nightlife in the Taksim area, as well as easy access to public transportation to get to all the historic sites. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. We loved having a kitchen, even if we only used it to prepare simple breakfasts, snacks, and drinks. Housekeeping was easily available and the service was thorough. Noise really was not an issue for us. On almost every night, the street was fairly quiet with only the occasional sounds from passersby. We can't wait to return to 212 Istanbul Suites and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like they have a pied-à-terre in Istanbul.

To start off with a great location, just a 3 minutes walk to taksim square and istiklal street, everything you need is around you, clubs, super markets, bars, shisha cafes, etc, to the most friendly and helpfull staff, specially Mehmet who was very helpful and friendly, to the cleaness of the room. For new visitors i would highly recommend it. Am definitely going back soon. Salma ibrahim

We visited Istanbul for the third time during one year, simply ´cause we fell in love with the city. This time we came without children and the 212 Istanbul Suites had an excellent location for us, it is very easy to travel to the Old Town or f.ex. to Nisantasi by metro. Taksim is close, but the street is quiet. Also for eating out anywhere in Beyoglu, the location is perfect.

Apartment was clean and warm (we stayd in January, it was freezing outside). Also hot water was available all the time. The service was great. We stayd 7 nights and had a free transport from the airport.

Perfect for a couple who want to see the sights, do shopping and eat out late.

You know what they say about going somewhere with big expectations - that you end up being disappointed. That statement was proven wrong on my recent trip to Istanbul. I had high hopes about 212 Suites...and i wasn't disappointed.
Perfect! All of it - the location, the hosts, the size of the room, cleanliness, airport transfers, equipment in the flat. I can think of nothing negative to say. On my previous trip to Istanbul I stayed in the historic center (Sultanahmet) but now I opted for the modern heart of the city. No regrets about that choice - you feel less like a tourist and experience more of the real life in Istanbul. But if you want to do the sights, it's withing easy distance.
I stayed at the Taksim Suite and found it wonderful but I sneaked a peak at the other suites and they seemed great as well. It's up to your taste which one to pick. Let me assure you - the flats do look like the photos on the website. Yes, they really are as gorgeous.
This review is turning out to be so glowing you might get suspicious I'm getting paid by the management. No such thing. I just believe good service and conditions should be encouraged by sharing my honest opinion with other travelers.
Btw, on the issue with the lack of elevators - the staff will help you carry your suitcases up (and down) so all you have to worry is your own fitness level.
Enjoy!
