We were at this hotel about 4 years ago. It was really crowded & had an old building. Staff was rude. Very crowded breakfast buffet. Tables were dirty & restaurant's staff were careless about it. Room was small but clean. The location was good.

I stayed there in August 2016. As with every hotel there was the good and the bad. The good: the rooms were clean, regularly serviced, fresh towels etc. There was very little noise. Aircon was always on in the heat, beds were clean and good. The rooms had almost everything you needed for a business stay. The swimming pool was...

Firstly I was played by the Ataturk airport tourist agency. This is nothing like 4 star hotel! Rooms are so small with very weak AC, dirty and in falling apart state. Receptionists are rude and completely unfriendly. If you want AC to work while you are out you must leave card plugged in. But no one tells you. When I...

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.
