I stayed at Adahan Istanbul in June 2012 with my wife. We chose this hotel because of its ideal location in the heart of Beyoglu. You can find a wide variety of restaurants withing walking distance from the hotel.
Hotel Adahan is truly beautiful. The detail that was put into the restoration is very striking; it has a modern and contemporary feel within a historic building. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The restaurant has amazing views of the city and from its location on the top floor.
The staff wants you to have a good time during your stay. We we upgraded to a nicer room when we arrived. The morning we left, the restaurant was accomodating and opened 30 minutes early for breakfast so we could make our flight. Lale even gave us a small parting gift!
The Hotel Adahan staff seemed inexperienced to me. Some of the staff don't speak English, so if problems arise beware that you may have some frustration finding a solution. One of the staff actually opened the door to my room while we were inside. We had ordered two bottles of water to the room. I didn't expect the bellman to actually open the door and come inside, as I was walking to the door. One other thing that may bother some travellers is the noise. On certain sides of the hotel the noise from party goers on the street is very audible within the rooms. The rooms are not equipped with blackout curtains either, so be careful selecting a room if you are a light sleeper.
I think the hotel can be good hotel and with a few changes it will be a lot better. I sincerely wish them the best as they were very nice folks. I felt like the staff sincerely cared about us and wanted us to enjoy ourselves while we were in Istanbul.
