The hotel is so good according to the prices of the hotel
The rooms is very clean the open buffet breakfast is very good

But many times they close the air condition and the receptionist is so rood

But you will like the place and its near to the attraction points in Taksim square and there is allot of restaurants

Room Tip: choose higher floras for the vie

Turkish Airlines provided us with a room at the Crystal Hotel due to an overnight layover in Istanbul. Check-in process was quick, despite the amount of people at the counter. The staff we met were polite, even friendly, and our guestroom and bathroom were very clean. They gave us good recommendations for dinner and generally getting around Taksim Square. This hotel does have a great location, and while it did get a little loud from the street in the evening, we didn't mind it at all, as the sounds were obviously of celebration.

My boyfriend and I had to check out to catch the early flight the next morning, but were surprised (a happy one) when they gave us a going-away goodie bag which included a breakfast sandwich, juice, and sweets. We enjoyed our short stay at the Crystal Hotel.

I a stayed here for a 3 night work trip and needed a place close to Taksim Square. Although there is major construction in the square I was happy with the location. The staff was very helpful with a package I tried to send for a work event and were great with directions. My room was small but what I needed. The bed was really hard which I thought would be a problem but I slept just fine. For the price, staff and location it was a good find.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, and one night was enough. I can see 2 positive things about it : location (5 minutes walk from Taksim square) and clean rooms.

Rooms are small and absolutely overpriced. Decoration is dated. The Crystal hotel was trendy in the 50ies maybe ? Most of the clientele was turkish ... so maybe it suits turkish tourists ?

Would never stay there again !

My host for a business trip booked this hotel for me. To avoid what would have been an awkward situation I stayed there two nights instead of doing what I wanted to do, which was stay anywhere else. The place was filthy, including dead roaches on the floor. The rooms were threadbare. There was so much noise at night I couldn't sleep. The breakfast was fine as long as you only ate the bread. The staff was going through the motions. This is the worst hotel I've encountered for a very long time.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms

The location is excellent, walking distance to taxim and other places but the hotel itself needs renovation ASAP, the rooms were very dirty, as soon as i walked in the room, i called room service as the sheets had a bad smell, remote control wasn't working (dead batteries), bathtub had hair all over and the carpet had alot of stains. the elevatores always smelled and even though it was our honey moon, they gave us a room almost in the elevatore, whenever someone uses it, we had to wake up whatever the time. To sum up for this price u can book at any other hotel at taxim with better service.
