“Fantastic hotel in the heart of Istanbul”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Lush Hotel was fantastic, clean, in an amazing location. I advise anyone staying in Istanbul to consider this wonderful hotel.

The breakfast had many choices, from omelettes to a variety of cheeses. The best thing was the freshly squeezed orange juice!

This modern Turkish boutique hotel, eloquently designed in a contemporary style with a feeling of modernization yet a touch of Turkish class. This little quaint hotel is strategically situation in the Taxim area, a stone's throw away from the famous Taxim square, and situated a short walking distance from the main high street in Turkey. It enabled us to have an amazing shopping experience, and witness Turkish nightlife at its peak at a reasonable price.
The hotel itself has fantastic service delivery, a feeling of warmth from staff, and a personalized ambiance. The rooms are clean, spacious , consisted of all essentials such as tea, coffee etc, and the rooms are fairly newly furnished with acceptable bathrooms. The hotel is so perfect it even covered up for the hard orthopaedic beds .
The breakfast was basic, yet fulfilling in a small breakfast room, that gave an experience of a modern Turkish cafe. The entire stay in Lush Hotel was thoroughly enjoyed. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Taxim. Definitely money's worth ...

I stayed in Lush Hotel during difficult times for the hotel - demonstrations in Taksim Square which is nearby. I found it useful to go in the opposite direction from Taksim Square and discovered great neighborhoods. I could not believe how close the hotel is to art spaces such as Istanbul Modern, interesting and less expensive restaurants. People working in the hotel, particularly Mr. Aydan at reception were impeccable; breakfast was very good and different from other places; bar downstairs very nice.

Room Tip: The street is quite narrow and less noisy, I think, than other locations. In any case, the room the...

We were there during the Taksim riots. Th staff couldn'tbe more helpful.
The rooms are really excellent, on the small side but I think that's standard in the area.
Yes, the room are noisy, but you're in Taksim, what do you expect?

Room Tip: Rooms high up are quieter.

A group of us stayed here for a conference on the other side of the square. The location was walking distance to the venue (on the other side of the square) but we did not count on protest starting up just before our stay. The staff at the hotel helped us through this situation, our taxi was unable to drive up until the hotel when we arrived so a staff member escorted us through the streets of protesters with our bags. They were very helpful with advice on when and where it was safe to travel. We were fortunate that it was safe to go through the square during the week of our stay and this allowed us to see the evolution of the square/protest. You can avoid the square and walk to a tram to go over to the old city where most of the tourist attraction are (if you prefer to concentrate on its rich history with so many sights to explore). By the time we left (June 8) taxis were able to drive up to the door again.

My room was quite small and had noise of protesters mixed with a nearby disco so a room away from the street may be required for some people to sleep. Others in my group were in different rooms and had no problem with sleeping, so make enquiries on type of room and cost if wish it to be larger or quieter. Breakfast is provided and has a great variety to choose from with fresh OJ and Turkish tea/coffee along with tables and an area with natural light where you can set up and work or enjoy a leisurely breakfast. They have english newspapers available to read. I recommend the hairdresser next door if you need a blow dry/style for a conference dinner, charging 15 turkish lira for that service.

Room Tip: The rooms do vary quite a lot in terms of size and location. For a quieter room you can go without...
