Not a luxurious hotel but its location is very good..Although it's not close to Taxim square,it's a 3 minute walk to the train station (that would get you to Taxim sq in no time) & a 10 minute walk to the bus station..it's just in the middle of all the famous sight seeings..

Ipek Palas hotel is a wonderful place to stay in. I stayed there for five nights. we really enjoyed our stay in this cozy hotel. the staff is so helpful and friendly. the breakfast was amazing with variety of delicious turkish food. one of the rooms had a wonderful view over the Bosphorus which was amazing by the way. the hotel is located in a perfect place its near to all the sightseeing in Istanbul. its about 2 minutes walk from the tram station. i would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a nice place to stay in while visiting Istanbul.
Great experience.
Thanks Ipek Palas staff :)

Hello to all the truly wonderful staff of Ipek Palas, open, sincere, helpful! My time in Istanbul, 13 nights, was very supported by my stay at this charming hotel, the second oldest hotel in Istanbul. From here I had easy access by foot and tram to the many ancient sites and contemporary daily life of Istanbul. The Ipek Palas introduced me to the Mediteranean foods of the region through their daily breakfast of heavenly tastes, and to the neighborhood via amazing window views from its top floor restaurant. I recommend spending several days and plan on walking the neighborhood.
