Lavanta Hotel

Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Good location, thought they didn't have the name on the door, so it was hard for us to find it the first time.

It is located in a central area with lots of bars arround so it is a little noisy. But perfect if you want to hang out during the evening.

The room is clean but small.

The reception is friendly and you can trust the place, no need to worry for luggage or so.

Breakfast is not their best.

Whether you are traveling along or with your friends or family, I am sure all of you would agree that you need a good place to stay and Lavanta is surely one of them.

Not very overpriced, its locale (4-6 mins walk from Taksim) makes it a perfect place for vacationers. You can find big brand stores, metro/funicular, cafes all within few mins walk. Moreover even attractions like Galata Tower and Bridge are in walkable distance. Also from Airport, you just need to pay 10 liras to get to Taksim square and then its 6 mins walk to the Hotel from there. So all in all its conveniently located for Tourists.

The rooms are very tidy and clean, facilities very well maintained. Similarly staffs there are very friendly, specially Ahmet Kardeş (brother in Turkish) who even helped me book my Cappadocia bus tickets as many Turkish Bus websites do not except a non Turkish Credit card.

All in all I was very satisfied with my stay. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Istanbul :D

Lavanta offered a very pleasant stay in Istanbul. The room was clean and had all the necessary facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was very good value for money. The hotel is located in the centre of Istanbul's nightlife, very close to İstiklal Avenue. Taksim metro station and the funicular, as well as the Havatas bus terminal, are only 10 minutes away on foot, which is very convenient if you like using public transport for sightseeing.

This hotel has the usual set of discomforts you'd expect anywhere around İstiklal (and in its price range): rooms are small and the streets are noisy. If you can't live with this, go to Sultanahmet or some other quiet neighbourhood. If your primary need is to have a clean and soft bed after an excellent night out in Istanbul, then I recommend Lavanta.

The location is steps from istiklal street, no night clubs in the same street so you can sleep without noise.
Reciption is the most helpful and respective I've ever met. Rooms are small but new and very clean.

The room is very small, but the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is also nice! But the best of the hotel is the localization and the price, you can't find it better around Taksim! ;D

And the staff is very kind!
