Very nice hotel in the heart of Instanbul just in the taxim squqre and the bullevard Istiklal.Very helpful stuff,our rooms were in the back side with no view but without noise.The rooms was in super condition,except the wi-fi connection,the breakfast was very good,and generally we were very satisfied.

Room Tip: Try to get room not in the front side of the hotel because there very noisy.

We Stayed at this hotel 7 nights in last June
The hotel was very clean.
The location is Great. You can go everywhere easily and quick. It is very close to "Istiklal Street" and "Taxim Square"
The rooms are small but clean.
Management and stuff were kind and helpfull.
We had a problem with our agency. They didn't pay to the hotel, but the management kindly helped us and really tried to solve our problem.
There was no annoying noise in our room.
Breakfast was not a big meal but it was good.
Finally I suggest this hotel to travellers

Room Tip: Higher floors are better

Taximtown hotel is located in the heart of Taksim, it is a 3 minute walk to the popular 'Istiqlal' street, making the location perfect of you're forward to shopping or reaching other destinations, it is 5 minutes away from the Metro station as well.
The hotel is relatively new, it's modern style is relaxing and convenient, rooms are a bit small but that's how it is in big cities!
What was unpleasant was housekeeping, when we entered the room there was vegetables in a plastic bag inside the fridge which obviously belonged to previous room occupants, there was a pair of socks inside the bed side drawer as well !!! Rooms were not properly cleaned daily and sometimes not done at all!
Telephone was not working throughout the whole visit! Breakfast was good, not too much variety though!
Omar who is working there as a waiter was more than excellent providing great service, helpful and friendly! (Must thank him).
Conclusion is the hotel is great and comfortable and is of great value and fairly inexpensive, however there seems to be a problem with management and housekeeping!

Very good location (near Taxim place), newly refurbished, most of rooms are small and for all rooms is better to have the windows closed, due to the "view" (all the nearby buildings are under destruction) the noise and the smell. The cleanliness was good, but do no expect something special; it is a small hotel OK to spend 2-3 days to see the sightseeing of the city, but not to have "holidays".

I stayed for 4 nights at the Taksim Town Hotel and I was really pleased. Staff tries very hard to please, their English is not perfect, but they are friendly, attentive and hardworking. My room was spotless clean, bathroom too, bedsheets felt like silk, and the color selection of the room was serene and lovely. Noise is a problem on weekends, however, once you use earplugs, you are fine. Breakfast was according to the Turkish habits, which is why I liked it, it wasn't Continental breakfast, colorless, tasteless and dull. I had the chance to taste what the locals eat. The location is excellent, very close to Taksim square, etc, despite the ongoing road works. If I go again to Istanbul, I will make sure I stay there.

+ We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights,the location is great 2 minutes away from Taksim metro station and one minute walk from Istiklal street at the same time it is a quiet ,harmonic place near a city central point! it was really nice having such a place to stay.
The value is great compared to the money paid.
Staff is very friendly and helpful
Rooms are very clean but small.

(-)We had a very bad smell in our room like mustiness .

Room Tip: rooms on the road side are better but try to get it on higher floors.

I would rate it 2.5 if it was possible. It deserves the full 3 only if they will fix the noise problem in the front facing rooms and improve the breakfast. I gave it a 3 and not a 2 since it was very clean and the rooms are comfortable.

The location is great, few minutes walk from Taxim square, metro station, Istiklal street. The rooms are big, comfortable and clean. They seem new or as if they were recently renovated. WiFi is available, TV in the room nothing interesting to see tough. Breakfast is basic but adequate.

The main problem we had there is a lot of noise coming from the street into the room. We had a front facing room to Tarlabasi street which is a very noisy street. Taxis, tourists, ambulances, police cars, everything heard in the room and during the entire night. We had to sleep with ear plugs!!! since there was no other room to move to. Bring you own pair. But we did enjoy the place and I would not mind returning there.

Room Tip: Don't take a room facing Tarlabasi or bring a pair of ear plugs!
