The hotel is simple. Rooms are so small with bad view. Staff was so friendly with us. Breakfast was good and enough. The location was the best point. Room was clean with an old safety box, small refrigerator, no sleeper, no toothbrush, no tea/coffee maker, old TV. Poor Wi-Fi signal in upper rooms. I think that was so-so(Not good-not bad)....

However, the hotel location is very good as its walking distance to Taksim square which is the key place for buying souvenirs and other... More

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.
