Second time visiting Istanbul in the last couple of months and Taksim life hotel has a perfect location with almost directly facing the square and the metro station a 2 minute walk away. The hotel is reasonably modern but the double rooms are quite small with a small bathroom but definitely worth the money. The hotel has wifi but this...

We have stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. It was very confortable stay however the rooms were pretty tiny. It is absolutely worth the money. The location of the hotel cannot be any better than that. Hotel crew is pretty professional.

I went there last July. It was nice hotel and perfect location of taksim square. However the stuff don't speak English and hardly understand me. Also there was no Omlet Eggs on the breakfast. Which is something I used to. Also I tried to late my checkout but they refused however the hotel was not that crowd. Thanks

Hotel is small, very close to the Taksim Square and some rooms and the breakfast room have a view to the square. Wall to wall carpets everywhere. There's no soundproofing at all. You can hear everything from outdoors in the rooms, but not so much from the adjacent rooms. Some small details were not really perfectly finished (e.g. leaking sink...

I have never stayed in such a terrible place before. It was not my personal choice but was booked as a group due to unavailability in other hotels. The standard rooms are so small, there is no place for your luggage.  The room was dirty with stains in the carpet and the linen. The location was close to Taksim but...

This is a budget hotel. The rooms are quite small and it can be a little noisy. The mini bar has this annoying flashing light that is bright. On the plus side the location is brilliant. You are practically on taksim square and instiklal street. The metro is practically next door. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Overall it...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
