“Great location neat taksim sq quiet at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Great place to stay, so convenient to taksim square with great bars, restaurants and cafes. The apartment was really nice and quiet at night. Manager couldn't be more helpful and it was easy to get to the old city by public transport.

Stayed here for a weekend break and was absolutely delighted with the quality of the apartment, location and most of all the personal service from the owner Berkay. Will most definitely stay there again when I return. Thank you.

Having previously made acquaintance with Berkay, the owner of 212 Istanbul Suites, when we stayed at his Orient Hostel establishment in Sultanahmet in 2012, we decided to stay here so we could experience the more modern aspects of Istanbul.

There are 5 self-contained apartments, each with a different theme and on a different floor. We stayed in the Sultan Suite on level 2 and found it extremely comfortable. We were especially grateful to finally have a bed that was somewhat softer than the slabs we had been experiencing, so that was an immediate plus. The presence of a washing machine and a roomy bathroom was also welcome.

The location is close to Taksim Square and the main thoroughfares, but tucked away sufficiently so that you are shielded from the noise and madness of the city. In fact the presence of the suites is not immediately obvious and initially we were a little confused when our cab driver dived into the Bunk cafe to notify our arrival, but this bit of anonymity is part of the appeal.

There are lots of little eateries nearby as well as a small general store where one can get some staples (like milk for the fresh coffee that you can brew in the suite's coffee machine).

Berkay likes to make sure his customers are looked after and is a wonderfully approachable host. We'd happily stay here again if I go back to Istanbul.

The location is great close to all the action . The buzzing Istiklal street is just next to the hotel which leads to the Taksim square just a few metres away.
Also , the local eateries , cafes and food inns are just at a stones throw.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the lower floors. The bathrooms are a bit tight.

The apartment is conveniently located. 5 minute walk from Taksim Square (Taksim Metro station) and 2 streets behind the busy Istiklal street. Many cafes and restaurants nearby, and yet despite the location the room is quiet at night. It was proffesionally cleaned and everything was functional. The room I stayed had a washing machine, which was very convenient as we had just returned from a week of traveling outside Istanbul.

What makes the place even more special is the attention and care that the manager, Berkay, gave us from the beginning of our reservation correspondence until we checked out. Berkay provided all the local information we needed about the city (it was my first visit to Istanbul) and always promptly responded to our requests.

I will definitely recommend this to those looking for a spacious room, central location, and yet quiet enough to have a good sleep.

We stayed there for three nights during our conference in Istanbul. Not only the rooms but also the staff are really great. The apartment was well maintained and clean. It is very close to Istiklal street and 5 minutes to the subway by foot. I higly recommend.
