A friend and I spent the last week at this hotel, and it was PERFECT. It's not really a hotel though, it is a home away from home. It's five studio apartments - one on each floor of the building. They are very clean and well-equipped; they have everything you need. The thing that makes this property really stand out is the property manager, Berkay, who provides guidance on whatever your interests are in the city -- from linens to live music. He explained the map and options, gave us a Metro Pass to use while there, and even got tickets for us to the Dervish at the Arts & Cultural Center. He really made us feel at home; like we had a friend in town we could call or text for advice when we needed it! The cafe below the rooms has EXCELLENT cappuccino to start your day, as well as food if you decide not to have breakfast in your room (you have a full kitchenette in each room). Property location is two blocks from Taksim Square and the shopping on Istiklal Street, so very central, and surrounded by literally hundreds of local cafes and restaurants with every type of local cuisine. The area is kind of the "Soho" of Istanbul. It's easy to take public transport to the old city, and nice to come back to a less touristy neighborhood at the end of the day. I am a diplomat and have traveled the world for 20 years, and I tell you with confidence this place is a great value and I'd stay here again (and LOVED Istanbul)!
