“small and smart hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2008

small and smart hotel next of the taksim square, istanbul. Hotel staff
is very helpfull, rooms are clean and small(but ideal). Its a typical bed and breakfast hotel at the heart of istanbul. There is a metro satation just next to the hotel, that means that; you can reach the most popular shopping centers (cevahir, metro city, kanyon..) by train. Breakfast is normal, but i m prefering tasty turkish cousins for eat. Its not a bussines hotel, i think much better for travellers(tourist)...

  • Liked — small and smart
  • Disliked — no way for taxi, you must walk up to main road
  • Stayed December 2007, travelled with friends

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2005

I was in istanbul with my partner for one night only and stayed at Riva Hotel. Rooms are very comfortable. Staff are very friendly. Breakfast is very various and satisfying. There is only one thing put me off completeyly which was the smoking was allowed in the breakfast room. There was a group of greek people having their breakfast and they were all smoking like a chimney therefore we were unable to enjoy our breakfast. However, I would stay there again..
