I stayed in this Hotel during a conference and found it over the conference's booking agency. There the pictures didn't look very inviting, but when searching for more Information on the web, I found out that the Hotel was recently renovated.
I got to the City Center with Havatas Transfer from the Airport and walked to the Hotel. It's only about 20 minutes, but not very easy to find as it's hidden behind Taksim Square and not even the locals could tell me where to go from just the street name. Thankfully there was a big sign leading to the Hotel. I was there during Demonstration time on Taksim square and didn't hear a Thing, so yes, it's nice and quiet.
The room was nice and modern and the shower was heavenly (rain shower) with Grohe faucets and it was very clean. My room faced a backyard, but on the other side there are balconies with a spectacular view on Bosporus and sun rise.
The Restaurant wasn't yet renovated, but nice and romantic with also a great view. Food was very good, but I was disappointed that they didn't have more Turkish dishes, but there are enough possibilities to try local Food in this City! There's also a small Supermarket on the way to the Hotel from Taksim Square and down the road from the Hotel. Also you can reach the tram to the old town in just 10 minutes walk.
The breakfast was OK, but I expected more since a turkish friend told me before that breakfast is so important for turkish People.
Alltogether I can only say that I would DEFINITELY recommend the Hotel and even book it again if I return to Istanbul.
