“Excellent hospitality, great location”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

As Istanbul was on my bucket list for years, I was really excited to visit Istanbul. I booked the Point Hotel Taksim because it's an affiliated hotel of Worldhotels, a group of hotels I know quite good, and because of it's location. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walking to the Taksim square and the charming French area. Also connections by tram and metro are very easy accessible from here. The hotel shows a great exposition of pictures from a Turkish photographer which are amazing. The staff was super friendly and did everything to make my stay unforgettable. The concierge informed us about tips for trips, room was refurbished and spacious and the breakfast area on the top floor gives you an amazing view over Istanbul and the Bosporus. When I return to Istanbul I would certainly want to stay here again.

Excellent, friendly accommodation by Yasin, who is part of the lobby staff. He made my short visit to Istanbul that much smoother, including special care of my bags, and directions and tips about how to use the city's taxis.

Came for a wedding, great staff and nice rooms. Best parts were the restaurant on the top floor (great views) and Murat, the amazing bartender. He couldn't have been more accommodating to our entire group, even at all hours of the night.

This hotel had some positive features - a great breakfast buffet with a lovely view of the city. The room was clean and lovely. The location was odd - right in the middle of a busy intersection (you need to be so careful just getting to your hotel). Close to the subway and an easy ride to the downtown destinations. There are several streets of restaurants (very touristy) behind the hotel. A few steps away from Taksim Square and the walking/shopping promenade. The hotel was accommodating (I forgot a converter) and they provided one. The internet was super slow - could not really get any work done as the connection was poor at best and non-existent for the most part.

Room Tip: It appears that most of the rooms were two single beds - inquire if that is a problem for you.

I was in Istanbul for a conference, and Point Hotel Taksim was close by. If I were traveling on my own, however, the location would be both the biggest pro and con for me. It's a bustling area and near several options for public transportation. But the part of town is incredibly tourist-y, and it would have occasionally been nice to be able to walk down a street in the area without being bombarded with the hard sell on restaurants -- none of which were very good. (In addition, the square was the gathering point for police, as protests resumed.)

The hotel itself was pleasant, comfortable, and well-run, good for a business traveler. The only negative was that the fitness center was closed (and I was not given the option of the facilities of the hotel next door). For other runners, I found nearby Macka park pleasant to run in, although it was a bit of a hassle to dodge traffic to get there.
