“advice: don't book at this hotel!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

My husband and I reserved at this hotel from the 30th of December till the 2nd of January. We made sure (after many trips to Istanbul last year) to reserve this hotel which is close to Taksim square metro station. When we arrived there, they took us to another building (15 minutes walk from the location they posted on booking.com) We arrived there, to know that all the rooms seemed to be booked and they moved us to this building. The manager was so arrogant and he lied regarding the room. after one hour of waiting, he moved us to a 3rd building. Very dirty room, and the building made a lot of noises every time anyone moves!! The manager said he was sorry and would like to provide free breakfast and laundry. None of this happened. No room service and we had to beg for new towels. I think it is time for this hotel to be removed from booking.com. My advice to you: never book rooms in this hotel..Unprofessional people lying to customers, as we knew later that the room we booked and paid more to get it online, was reserved for someone else. Be aware of them.

Room Tip: Never book in this hotel. Trust me it is for your own good.

There is no elevator. Hwvr the man (who looked like George Clooney) assisted me well. :) The hotel is situated in the lower end of the street from the main tourist Istiklal Blvd. However in the night once the clubs get going, the music can be heard faintly in the room. There are very few English channels on the TV. The front desk manager, Ms Era, was helpful in providing information.

Room Tip: The rooms have about the same amenities. One may choose for view of the small street or of other bui...

The compact rooms are clean, homelike, pleasant and well equipped. The staff were generous, friendly, welcoming and helpful. Special mention must go to Esra who was helpful beyond the call of duty. The position was excellent - very close to the lively bars and restaurants of Istiklal but far enough from them to be a quiet and peaceful retreat at the end of the day. Conveniently close to the transport hub of Taksim Square. I found the immediate vicinity to have a charm of its own. Vaguely bohaemian, a little ramshackle but in a charming way. All in all, I thoroughly recommend Ma Maison to anyone who is looking for economy and comfort in a prime location.

The hotel is less then 2 min walk to Istiklal st. Literally side street opposite the shopping mall
The rooms are spacious, the area is lively. The staff where really amazing couldn't do enough to help.

Room Tip: Ask for room on lower floors as there is no lift

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel but almost everything went wrong. The folding bed was broke so they fixed it by putting a stereo speaker under it wich that didnt changed nothing ! some electric cables were hanging in shower, and the tv cable was cutted. the hotel personel didnt care at all our complains and didnt wanted to give our money back or change our room. This place is a cash machine the boss is never here and the staff dont care you. Taksim have a lot of nice hotels so avoid this one !

It is a cheap hotel, very close to istiklal and taksim square.... Askin and Ali are very friendly and helpful and make the stay at the hotel even better... The room was clean and 2 of the 4 nights we stayed there, we were invited and enjoyed live Tourkish music in the lobby !!! Generaly speaking it is a nice small hotel, very good value for money,, totally central, with friendly and hospitable personel !!!!
