“Satisfactory business hotel”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

I stayed here for a meeting at the nearby conference center (10 min walk). Well situated both for the conference center and transport from the airport (e.g., the Havas buses), and many restaurants both in the immediate hotel vicinity and a short walk away (Taksim square). Straightforward public transport to the famous tourist sites.

The room was fine but did not have enough clothing storage space for two people. All hotel services were overly expensive for the class of the hotel (e.g., airport transfers, breakfasts (which were not included for me)). On the other hand the basic rate was very fine.

I would stay here again for a business trip, but look elsewhere for vacation. (Which is exactly what I did).

The hotel is your average 4 stara hotel, European standard. The location was great, near the metro station that was good to visit the sites. A little bit of a language barrier,but overall the staff was really nice. Good breakfast, full buffet and excellent coffee. The beds were good, the pillows not so great, and some of the beading was torn,in need of replacement.
One detail with the authorization lon the credit card, you get charge up front and it is confusing when no prepayment is shown on the bill. We had a very late check in, and were given the penthouse suit for the first night. The staff was really nice helping us locatelost luggage at the airport

It's neither a top notch business hotel or a tourist place but it offers clean functional rooms and pretty good service. It is also close to the Istiklal Mall. Importantly for Istanbul, the air condition works. Goof value.

i stayed at Nippon hotel for second time because my first stay at this hotel was great but this time it wasn't, we arrived at the hotel around 10 am in the morning, i called the hotel 1 day before our arrival asking them for an early check in because i have 2 children with me & they gave me the room when i arrived which is a good thing, but the problem was they gave me a very small room for a family with kids & the window in the room was very small with a view of a wall in front of it, i can say that this room is more suitable to be a storage room! i called the front desk 3 times asking for a baby crib & then they bring me a mattress to put on the floor!! how am i supposed to let my 1 year old baby sleep on the floor!! later i found some flying bugs in the room & the bathroom & felt very uncomfortable & asked them to change my room & they did that very quickly. the other room was more specious with large window & finally we had sun light in the room, but the problem with the new room was the noise even if the window is closed we still hear all the noise on the street, the second problem was that the duvet covers was ripped from more than one place, i was very disappointed because l didn't expect to see all this problems in the hotel because i stayed at this hotel last year & our stay was great & the hotel was more clean & the service was better.

Nice hotel in a great location in Taksim. Other hotel reviews mentioned how loud there hotel was in this same area, but this one was great. My only complaint was that sometimes the hallways smelled like smoke, when we were staying in a non-smoking room, and maybe the blinds could have been darker to block out the early morning sun.
Other than that, the service was great, they were very helpful and the location was just perfect! Would definitely stay here again for the value as well.

Mix up with booking gave us twin beds instead of a double thus dampened an Anniversary stay. Water and tea not replenished and tea cups left dirty each day. Air conditioner not efficient and tv with many channels with no sound. Wifi worked near bathroom but not in main section of room. Room small and noisy. Lots of street noise. No tissues supplied. Staff pleasant and attentive. We tried this 4 star but will now continue to book 5. Yes, we could have complained but feel you should not have to.

Reception staff very professional and willing to assist with bookings and advice. Hotel 5 minutes walk from Taksim shops and metro station. Very clean rooms which were well maintained (ours had no view but was otherwise fine). Nice bathrooms. Breakfast was good and overall service was 5 star
