“Perfect location”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Perfect location near a lot of restaurants and nightlife. The rooms were clean and nice. A lot of personel but just a few speaking good english. Very helpful with arranging "good" taxis. I never tried the breakfast but instead was eating out traditional Turkish way. I would definetly go here again.

Very nice hotel with a Bosphorus view on the restaurant!! Staff are well accommodating and very friendly. Very quick in responding to the request. Rooms are very clean!! The hotel is near Taksim Square just 5 to 10 minutes walk. Free wifi is really what I love here.

Reviewed 2 July 2014

the hotel is close to the taksim square, but located in a very noisy neighborhood, with construction sites all over, the rooms have noise isolating windows, but they are not enough to cope with the heavy noise coming all over from the construction sites, the staff is great and helpful, they gave us a room at first, that was maybe done, in what seems to have been a small tight space left between an ending of a room and the end of the hallway, i was though cleaned than the other big room that was given to us in compensation, which had hair all over the sink.
the rooms have plenty of gadgets and amenities, but they are all for extra charges, you feel as if you walked in a supermarket.
but the crown jewel of this hotel, is the patio on the top floor. there you can enjoy the wonderful breakfast, with a full view of the sea.

Room Tip: pay more and get a room with a sea view. if not you will get a room with a construction view

We have organised a 3 day training here it was amazing!!!
Everyone is very nice and very helpful (i mean helpful not in a polite way but really helpful! I -the event manager - got sick so they took care of everything including my health)!
The food is very good and diverse also their 9th floor restaurant with the sea view gives it a great atmosphere.
To be honest for this kind of services (all provided with a smile) this place is very cheep! Also it is in the middle of the night life of Istanbul which made it the best location for our needs.
I was very impressed with their Tango night (every Thursday) it is full of nice people and positive energy.
Nothing more to add! Me and the other 30 guest were very happy about everything! I honestly recommend it!

Point Hotel Taksim is a nice hotel for a visit to Istanbul since it is located very near to Taksim square and istiklal street. This also means that the hotel is near the metro station which can take you easily to the Blue Mosque & Hagia Sofia. The rooms are not so big even the dining hall for breakfast can get filled up easily at certain times of the morning since it is not so big although it has a great view of the marmara since it is at the 9th floor. Staff are sometimes helpful and sometimes not since not all of them speak english. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of local and international cusisine.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in a very busy junction so try to get a room away from the motorway street sin...

Convenient location and nice hotel overall. You can tell it is a business hotel so nothing too fancy but loved proximity to transportation and highways. It was very clean and the beds were VERY COMFORTABLE. Only downside to sleep quality was the noise level. There were doors slamming all hours of the night and the walls are thin enough to allow you to hear showers running in other rooms.

Staff was not very friendly. An employee at the door watched my friend and I struggle with our suitcases up the stairs upon arrival. Bizarre. No offer to help whatsoever. Front desk staff seemed strained to help when we asked questions about confirming our transfers.

Housekeeping Staff seemed pretty good the first day but then neglected to change the foot towel outside the shower each day. Found that a bit unsanitary and unheard of for a hotel.

Room service was prompt and prices were very reasonable for the portion size.

Breakfast buffet was excellent! Wide selection and the staff in the dining area upstairs was very pleasant.

Strange occurence.
The hotel got us a taxi from the taxi stand across the street and we were charged 20 Turkish Lira to go to Ciragan Palace. When we caught a taxi in front of Ciragan Palace back to Point Taksim the driver used the meter and the total was 10 Turkish Lira for the same trip. When we mentioned we paid 20 earlier he informed us of the many scams of taxis (switching bills, fixing meters and overcharging). I found it a bit strange that when we asked the hotel the estimated price they also said 20 Turkish Lira. Perhaps they are in cahoots. Who knows!

The hotel is located directly at the Taksim Square and is in modern and good shape. It has a nice pool, and the breakfast has a large variety of food. I think everybody will find something.
But the employees often are missing politeness to the quests and are at the border to rude.
I felt OK in the hotel, by avoiding to cause any needs to the personnel.....
