212 Istanbul Suites
Ranked #28 of 1,260 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed in the Sultan Suite for four nights during our weekend trip to Istanbul. We had a really great stay and would definitely come back. Berkay, the apartment contact person, was super responsive and proactive from the time we booked the apartment until we left. Even when there was a snag with the aiport pickup, he found alternative solutions and we never experienced any hassle. Berkay had left tips for restaurants and guide books in the apartment, and I think what sets this place apart is definitely the friendly service. The apartment itself was also really nice, though the bathroom could do with a touch up. The location is great, right in the lively area of Taksim, but on a quiet street so you can get your sleep too. It's also close to a bunch of really good restaurants! Highly recommended!

212 suites is in a great location, close to Istiklal, cafes & restaurants and transport options.
Pros
Berkay is a great host and communicator and very helpful. Staff are also great. They helped us with an early check in and good tips.
Location is perfect
Spacious living area, makes it a much better option than a traditional hotel
Nicely decorated
Cons
Plumbing, we had a leaking pipe that was not fixed during our stay.
There is some construction going on nearby and the banging starts at 8am, but if you out early in the morning you can miss it.
Motion sensor lights may need to be adjusted, negotiating stairs at night is tricky
Overall we had a great stay, and 212 felt like a home away from home.

Room Tip: Stayed on first floor, be careful with the stairs at night as lights work on motion sensors

We stayed in 212 Istanbul Suites for 7 nights end of April.
Upon arrival, we were met by Berkay, one of the owners, who walked us up to Taksim Suite on 3rd floor to provid a useful brief and made sure to be there to say goodbye to us prior to departure.

To sum up, here it is:

1- Location: cannot get any better as it is 2 min to Istiklal street but yet in a quiet peaceful street. Plenty of grocery shops and cafes nearby

2- Taksim Suite: spacious and window seat is so lovely. Air conditioning and TV work well. Kitchen facilities are convenient.

3- Owners: Berkay is a super communicator. Starting with e-mail reservation arrangements to departure day, he made sure to be available to answer any queries on the spot even when out of country with excellent command of English.

4- Price: given the location, is very reasonable.

5- Airport pick up: Reliable. We got a free airport transfer arranged by the Suites which was a treat.

5- Things to improve: bathroom is v small with a water leakage from the ceiling which was unpleasant. However, Berkay and business partner reacted quickly and explained that they were aware of this problem and are looking for ways to permanently solve this issue (apparently due to old building plumbing system). Variety of non Turkish TV channels will be appreciated or alternatively adding a DVD player?

Overall, I recommend it. It is wonderful to feel that you have people to look after you when needed and Berkay took the extra mile and was available 24/7. Go for it!

Had the chance to stay here in the last week and I can't say enough good things about the place. Both the rooms and the staff are truly fantastic. I would Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to stay near Taksim but doesn't want to deal with all the hustle and bustle that that would usually involve.

We stayed for 4 nights at 212 istanbul suites.
The location is great for getting to know the city, nice restaurants and clubs for evening dinners and drinks are on walking distance as well.
The apartment was well maintained and clean.
The owner was a pleasure: friendly welcome, available for questions (and suggestions for sightseeing and dinners etc.) at all times.
