Reviewed 1 April 2014

This hotel is very close to Taxim Square and Istikal Caddesi which gives you easy access to the many shops,restaurants and bars as well as the Metro. It was lovely, the rooms were clean and well decorated, towels changed every day. The staff were very helpful and even though we have been to Istanbul before they were able to give us useful advice on travelling about. I would definitely stay there again when I next visit Istanbul.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews and were not disappointed. From the beautiful decorated and very clean rooms, to the delicious made to order breakfast, to the excellent tips and advices about getting around, there was nothing left to chance and make our stay the best. This hotel is also conveniently located close to Istiklal Street, with many shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. I definitely recommend Ottopera Hotel for your stay in Istanbul.

A tiny pretty hotel in smart position (very close to Taksim Square). The rooms are very clean, noiseless, comfortable and well equipped (also with strongbox); the staff is great! The hotel manager suggests and helps you, he's really kind and useful. Recommended!

We choosed this hotel looking reviews and we are totally agree with them... Very nice place in istanbul near taksim square; from taksim you can take funikular and then tram to istanbul city center where to find the most historical and popular sites.
The owner and other staff are kind, the rooms are clean and smell good, bed is confortable and bathroom is not so big but anyway enough to live there some days.
Other important thing to say is that you can have breakfast from 8 to 12 in the morning.. they offer a taste breakfast.
Taxi drivers sometimes don't know in what street the hotel is located.

Room Tip: 301 was reallly good room.

This was the first time I stayed at Ottopera Hotel, a recommendation from colleagues. The hotel is in an older building near Taksim Square. The area is perfect, near the metro/tram lines and close to shopping.
The owner of the hotel is Emre Sezgin. He has done an excellent job redoing the structure and training his team. For restaurants, tips and other practical information, he is the person to talk to. His manager, Mehmet Yanik is equally helpful. I fell sick one morning, and whatever his cure (Turkish tea and toast with cheese) work better than anything.
The price of the rooms really surprised me for what you get. The rooms are clean, all the amenities you need, I spent five days at the hotel, and everyday everything was replenished and cleaned.
The breakfast also pleasantly surprised me. A full Turkish affair with lots of breads and sweets on the side. If you like expresso, ask for it in place of the coffee - it was very good.
The only down side would be the activity in the street, but remember the Turks are nocturnal, so wherever you go in Istanbul, be prepared and enjoy.
I highly recommend Ottopera Hotel. Many thanks Emre.

Room Tip: If you want a room more quiet, you can ask for a room off the street or basement level, but I person...

My Stay at the hotel was for 10 days with my best friend, the room was clean, modern, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the shower was OMG!! just perfect.
The staff were really friendly its like one big family, they were very welcoming and very helpful.
Emre who works morning shift was wonderful always smiling and helped us a lot, Mehmet the owner of the hotel was extremely generous with us and was always there when we needed him. Adam the night shift guy one of the most quite people any one could meet but you can actually feel very safe when he's around. the cleanness of this place was incredible i cant even put it into words. the housekeeping and servers were always smiling as well.
their breakfast is very delicious and was very full fling. the location of the hotel is really good only 5 min walk to Taksim square and the street of the hotel had almost everything from dry clean, supermarket, kebab small restaurant, exchange offices and even hair salon.
Overall we will i would always recommend this hotel to anyone who would like visit Istanbul, i'm sure you wont regret it.If we ever go again its no question we will stay there again!
Mehmet Good Luck and keep up the amazing work. your hotel is beyond beautiful.
