From moment we arrived we have been very nicely welcomed! All staff was very very friendly and helpful! The location is in the heart of Taksim and very very close to taksim square (3 min Walk). The area (istikala street / the Shopping and Restaurant street) doesn't sleep at night and it's so nice. There are plenty of shops and restaurants. However the street of the hotel is quite and peaceful. The metro station is 5 min walking from the hotel and you can easily reach all attractions from there. Don't bother taking expansive cabs. Get an Istanbul card which you can get from many shops and who will explain to you how to use it. Special BIG thanks to Harun who was very helpful from day 1 and gave us a free upgrade from deluxe room to exclusive and also a 50% discount on the dinner at the hotel. He also explained many things on how to get where! The room was too beautiful (like on the pics), clean and huge. All rooms got a jacuzzi. There is nothing I could criticize about the hotel. We just loved it!
The hammam was unfortunately a bit expensive (25€ each). But we didn't have time for it anyway and may be we would have gotten a discount too. Breakfast was very good and they have various choices of food. The day we are leaving it was raining and the staff kindly offered to drop us at havatas bus shuttle station, which is 5 min walking anyway.
I would definitely go back there and thank God I didn't take one of those other very expensive hotels who are not even as good located as this one!
