I stayed here for 2 nights in August 2014 and had a pleasant stay. Great location - it is located right next to Taksim square, the shopping street Istiklal and the subway (easy access to Sultanahmet and the beautiful sights of the old Istanbul). The rooms aren't overly spacious however I was staying on my own so I didn't mind. Perhaps the room was a little expensive considering the size but you are paying for the location. I disagree with previous reviews stating that the staff don't speak English well. The staff I encountered could all speak English well and were lovely and very helpful. A/C worked perfectly in my room and the free wifi worked fine but was not fantastic. I will note however that I experienced quite a bit of noise from the street during the night and early morning. Also, although I'm not sure of the hotels smoking policy, the level I was staying on smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.
