“Great Location”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Me and my wife stayed there for 2 nights during Feb 2012. Our room number was 508. The most important advantages were;

1- If you are planning a trip to İstanbul, I strongly suggest to stay somewhere close to taksim area. This hotel is just opposite taksim area. Also its very close to metro, local bus stations and for buses to and from both Istanbul airports which are Atatürk International and Sabiha Gökçen. Only 2 minutes walk. (Buses from and to airports are called HAVAS or HAVATAS.) So location is very good.

2- Also the breakfast is more than acceptable. There are different choices which I believe would satisfy everyone. They even serve honey from a honeycomb.

3- The room was clean, restorated, big bed and a good working air conditioning system. Also very smooth check-in and check-out procedure.

The major disadvantage is;

1-Since the hotel is just on the main street (tarlabası street)of Taksim area, there is some level of noise. It didn't disturb us but if you are too sensitive regarding noise issue then I suggest to consider another hotel. (But don't forget that Taksim is a loudy area)

2- The rooms are not very big.But it was enough for us.

In general, Its certainly not the best 4 star hotel we stayed but considering the price, I can say that its worth to stay there. Good Value for money.

We enjoyed our stay and will stay there next time.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room.

My beautiful boyfriend booked this hotel for us. Our room was 223 which was at the end of the hall - excellent. Very spacious and quiet. The hotel is located in noisy Taksim so you could hear some street noise but minimal. There is a nice breakfast serviced. Downside - lifts are small so handling luggage is difficult. Hallways are in bad need of repair and updating. Staff was excellent.

Room Tip: The larger room at the end of the hall on each floor

Was at this hotel for a night and was saddened by extremely small size of the room. In addition, one needed to negotiate around the narrow corridors to search for the room. The 2 lifts were also small only for a couple to squeeze in and it was not easy to find the hotel lobby. Spending a night there was like confining yourself in a dungeon. When we asked why the room was stuffy, the counter staff replied it was cold now in Istanbul so the central air-con was shutdown. We could only rely on a small window hatch for the flow of fresh airinto our room. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

It wasn't my first time in Istanbul , so I kind of had an idea of its location. Istanbul isn't very walkable and most of the hotels/ hostels are either on an edge or on a tiny street where you have to climb up and down every time you go to a hotel.


Bad things :

1- The bathroom really needs a serious renovation.
2- The breakfast was so poor
3- I had a problem with my room's door because the room's card didn't work and every time I need to go in , I had to call someone from the reception or the cleaning service to open the door for me which was really really really annoying.
4- the room had no view


Good things about the hotel :

1- Centrally located
2- The price was reasonable
3- Somehow clean
4- The staff were so nice and friendly
5- easy access to cafes and restaurants and shops.

I don't mind staying in there again if I cannot afford a better place but I will make sure not to get that problematic room.

if you r a budget traveller who cares more about being in the middle of action, cartoon hotel is the place to be! right in Taksim Sq. and a 5 mins walk to Istiklal street in which you will find the exciting night life, you can go shopping and many restaurants.
The breakfast was really good, and they have free wireless internet service.
Overall was perfect for my trip with my best friend.. good price, perfect location and an excellent breakfast.
