“Tired hotel with broken a/c”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I was on the 8th floor. The air conditioning was like an asthmatic octogenarian blowing warm air through a hole in the wall. I had to pour water over myself to keep cool in bed. When I complained they said the whole hotel had a problem. Next night was worse. Taksim is not the best part of town. Go somewhere else.

What I met during my stay in this hotel was comletely different I saw on hotel's web site. There was no swimming pool in this exactly hotel. The room was very small, the toilet in my room not clean, breakfest simple and poor. So, avoid this hotel.

hotel is locate in the very city center of istanbul(taxim sqaure).
is inside a very quite pedestrian with many other hotels.close to the hotel you can find a big variety of restaurants and stores of all kinds for you typical shopping for every day,
Also the location is very convience cause from taxim sqaure you can take the bus/train to and from airport as well to visit major atractions.

public busess and Open bus's also start from taxim square,you can find also many taxis close to the hotel.


our room was a standar double room quite small for two persons with all the necessary thinks need it.
overall hotel is very clean with a very helpfull staff.
breakfast quallity is very good and variety of breakfast is a typical variey of a 4* hotel.

i would suggest this hotel for shorrt days stay in order to see the amazin city of istanbul.
its a very nice value for money hotel for budget travelers,

Seemed an old hotel without any refurbishment for a long time. The rooms were good enough in size but very poor in quality. The bed was missing the above matress cover making the sheets slippery. During the three days stay I saw round 7 different staff at the reception desk and most of them were not very responisive. The hotel is very nicely located very close to Taksim square in a small street with limited traffic and small restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel from 13 Sept to 16 Sept. The rooms were small and bath room smelled terrible even when we closed the door. However the main problem with this hotel is its staff and very rude reception specially night shift. Very unpleasant people who treated guests as criminals and no respect at all. If i ever go back to Istanbul I'd rather stay on the street that this hotel.

It said it was refurbished. We are still wondering were it was. Definitely not in the bathroom. walls covered with mold, crashed tiles, dirt and dust. AC not working, main door easy to open without a key, just push a bit!! Bed .... a lumpy cropland and the pillow. no sleep at that place. restaurant with arrogant young girls serving cold food and trays after trays with mixed something we couldn´t identify. I thought nobody could spoil an boiled egg but they surely managed that too. Wifi worked in the lobby not in the rooms as they said. So recommendation, take another hotel when in istanbul!!

Very good location off taksim square, quiet street without traffic and lively shops and restaurants nearby. No other redeeming features, hotel dark and tired looking, staff tried but rooms were dingy , beds uncomfortable and smelt damp.air conditioning worked, room looked out onto enclosed space full off aircon oulets with negligible natural light, but worst were bathrooms very old and mouldy and in need of complete renovation like the hotel. A 2 star facility worth no more than 40 euros a night.
