The locations is perfect, very near from Taksim (3 min. walking), and in a very quiet street. I booked through booking.com, and I payed for a room 50 euros for two people. The room was good, not very big, but clean, new, and with good views from the last floor. I find it cute, and knowing how are the prices...

I actually stayed in this hotel from 29 sept 2011 to 3 oct 2011. Having read some of the reviews we were a bit nervous about our decision to book the hotel. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel (despite the scaffolding outside for a paint job). The reception staff were friendly and efficient and had good English....

Nice and clean hotel located centrally just down the hill from Taksim Square. Room was quite small, but had everything we needed. It was my second time staying here, and would certainly stay again - hotels in Istanbul can be hit and miss, but this is quite adequate for the mid-range tourist, with its location being a very big plus.

Bathroom extremely moldy!! Showers are uncomfortable and mold is not only in the shower but on the bathroom tile. They leave extra toilet role on the handle of the toilet cleaner. Room is small but okay. No business center, no pool (website is a little misleading), no laundry. When we asked how much to send out for laundry, they quoted...

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.
