Retropera Hotel
Ranked #24 of 1,070 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 September 2013

My husband and I are frequent travelers; between the two of us we've visited over 50 countries. This hotel is one of the best we've ever stayed at because of the very friendly service and gentle, intelligent and amicable owners. The location is superb -- a short walk to Taksim and Istiklal -- and the rooms are clean, modern and cozy. The owners are extremely helpful, often providing itinerary and restaurant suggestions, with good cheer. The hotel is a boutique one in a neighbourhood that remains "real" and the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Within 24 hours of our stay, all of the staff knew us by name and went out of their way to accommodate us. The breakfast is great, too. We plan to come back soon and, in the meantime, highly recommend this to anyone looking for a less "corporate" hotel.

Room Tip: Pay for one of the better rooms (superior). The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable. Note...

We have booked this hotel via booking.com and i was so impressed during my stay. Its a small boutique style hotel and everybody is ready to help you before you ask. The location is superb (50 meters to the taksim square). The owners (two partners) are always there to make sure our stay was ok. I recommend this place to anyone. Thanks...

We stayed for a weekend in July about 2 months after opening. The owner and staff were amazing. Helpful and friendly, treated us like part of the family. The hotel and rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The location is right off Taksim square and close to the pedestrian cadessi, with easy access to the entire city.

After having traveled across Turkey for three months, I had a chance of staying in various hotels, pansyons and hostels, and I must say, the attractive smell, modern design, comfort, and most importantly, the staff, by far are the best I've ever come across.

We were greeted by smiles, the staff helped us with our luggage, welcomed us in, check in was super quick. Absolutely seamless.

The design is brick meets posh. I'm not an interior design expert, but one thing is for sure, is that you'll be doing a couple of photoshoots on the way to the terrace overlooking the city. Make sure you have a cup of rosehip tea on the terrace, it is breathtaking. Literally 30 seconds to the infamous Istiklal, main street in Taksim. Buses and taxis are $5 away from most tourist attractions - Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Dervish Show. SEE THE DERVISH SHOW - ask for a recommendation at the front desk, one of the most spiritual and significant visits we've had.

To conclude, we are fully satisfied, very sad to go.
