It's really highly recommended. The location is perfect, all kind of transportations are close by. The staff are really helpful in all aspects. The hotel was always clean and smiled good. No worries of being far from taksim, cuz the tunnel from karakoy to taksim is 5 min. ahead from the hotel.

We stayed here for four nights in April. The Location is great close to the Galata Bridge and Galata Tower. There is the tram nearby and the hop on hop off bus stop is about a five minute walk. However, walking over the bridge both day and night is a wonderful experience full of the sights and smells of the city. The fish market is near the bridge.
The hotel is fantastic. Spotlessly clean and tidy. It's new so everything is in working order and of good quality. The rooms are of a small size but we didn't mind as the quality was better than in other hotels we have stayed at across Europe. The rooms have everything you need from toiletries, hair drier to slippers. Bed was comfy with two large good quality pillows each. The shower is great, two types. It took a little while to heat up but worth the wait. We stayed in 406 with a little balcony which was great for the morning sun. It's by a main road and the docks so there is a little noise but nothing that bothered us.
Breakfast had a good choice and range of food. The set is out in small amounts but you can go back as often as you like. You need a breakfast ticket every day from reception which you hand over before you start. Tea and coffee are included but if you want Turkish Coffee there is an extra charge. They serve food throughout the day in the restaurant. It's a European menu and looked pretty good. We did have drinks one evening in the restaurant. It has a lovely atmosphere but the drinks were fairly expensive.
The staff were always very helpful and friendly. We booked the dervish show through the hotel and borrowed an iron. At all times staff gave us the best customer service. Not everyone speaks English but they will find someone to help very quickly.
Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you
We are not a fan of places to eat that are for tourist for eating so the historic area was out. We found some great food in cafés (dem- quirky little tea shop with great food) and restaurants (NATO Lokantas- local favourite for lunch with delicious Turkish homemade food) nearby. Hamid just over the bridge was excellent for kebabs and views of the city.

The location is why we chose the Haze. It is a bit pricy, but you do get very reliable service, decent in-hotel restaurant with outdoor seating, modern rooms with classy interior with free wifi etc. A real perk is that two of Istanbuls greatest lokantasi restaurants are literally jut around the corner. Add to that a comfortabel walking distance to both the major sites, the best nightlife and the shopping og Istanbul. Not all personell speaks english, but in our experience they will provide someone that does immediately. Great for place for couples! Expect some traffic on the roads off the Galata bridge.

First night we arrived someone didnt reserve our rooms so we were briskly diverted to another hotel and asked to come back in a couple of days. Not good.
However having returned a couple days later i was very satisfied. Very clean rooms, excellent service ( apart from the breakfast in the lobby area- run out of limited food and the waiter was none too pleased with you asking for more!!! :o )
Tugba at reception and Mehmat were very very helpful going out of their way to book us tours and ordering us mcdonalds too!!! Very very nice people.
Rooms were small but 5 star.
Smiles all around. Room service arrives within 5 minutes of calls.
Although i had a bad initial encounter with the lack of booking on their side I can say the Haze is a must!!
Central location, a few minutes from the Galata Tower and only a 2 min walk from all ferrries and tram lines to take you to the Asian Side. Loved it. Thank you x

The hotel was a great choice for our staying in Istanbul. The superior room was spacious and clean. However, the wifi signal was unstable and requires re-entering the password more than one time. The breakfast has limited choices in sweets (no cake!). The hotel arranged transfer service from the airport even if we never asked for and the insisted of its payment!

Haze Hotel has an excellent location offering easy access to the old city, night life of Istanbul and the lovely Bosphorus. Istanbul's most popular mosques, palaces and historic sights are 10-15 min away by rail ride. Neighborhood is a popular area surrounded by outstanding cafes and restaurants and a modern art museum within walking distance. We were lucky to enjoy a tour of the lovely Bosphorus by public boat from the port just across the Galata bridge.
The hotel itself is new and stylish. Rooms are clean with large windows,nice bathrooms and everything you need. The Hotel houses a delicious and cosy restaurant and staff are most heplful. A great value for money, would definietly stay there again, highly recommended.
