Very good location in the city, only few minutes walking to the Istiklal Caddesi main shopping street and Taksim Square (metro station). The hotel is new and modern, the room was spacious (studio apartment with kitchenette). The reception staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was served in our room (as there was no breakfast room) but it was very comfortable to be served and have it in our room. Supermarkets and restaurant within 100 metres. The area is not the best but developing rapidly and we had no problem, it was safe. The only negative thing, that the kitchen was not equipped, there should have been at least 2 glasses, cups and a pot (were provided when asked).
