“Bed and Breakfast, Good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

I was in Lion Hotel for three night and I found the place quite clean with an average breakfast. Hotel is in a very good and alive location and near the Istiklal walking street which you may find lots of cafes, bars, pubs, clubs and so on. Lion hotel is in a old building without swimming pool but you can use Crystal hotel swimming pool by Lion hotel room card which is nearby. Staff are kind but rooms are very small and quite noisy with no good view.
Totally I can recommend this hotel for solo traveler who are not interested in staying in hotel for a long time and who are looking for a bed and breakfast and live location.

I'm in the hotel at this time, the room is too warm, because the air condition is off until 5:00 PM, the pictures in this site are not real, the pool that you see in this website is not in this hotel and it is close. Breakfast is too normal same as a hotel with mabe 1 star. This hotel is not 4 star mabe 1 or even 0 star.

We visited Lion Hotel for one night in January 2012. The room was clean and rather spacious, the service was polite and discrete. We were amazed by the breakfast which it was delicious and there was a huge variety of food to choose from. I implicitly recommend it!

We went there for 3 nights with my school.We could not communicate with the staff because no one knew English.Plus,there was a group of goung men from Lyvih and they bothered us.They knocked our doors late at night and wandered at the corridors.Although we mentioned that,they did not care and do nothing.
The room was small but the bed was really convenient.Of course,another problem was that we could hear what was happening at every other room.The staff did not permit more than 3 people in one room,so late at night they knocked the door to check.They knocked next door and when they did not answer the staff came in with their key-card.
Regarding to the menu,everything was fresh,clean and tasty.Bread and cheece mostly.The road in front of the hotel is quite silent but across the road there is something like a bar which plays loud music at weekend.

for a four star hotel, I've had the experience of many better choices in other cities; but in Istanbul it was a good choice! The main advantages of this hotel is its cost and its location in Taksim Sq. but you should balanced expectancies; the hotel is aged, elevators are aged, the breakfast is so basic and the rooms are not something especial. But the you have free internet, clean rooms, kindly staff serving you and a good palaces to walk around near you in less than 5 minutes walking although you are far enough from crowded Taksim Sq.
