Stayed here in December 2013 and there was a lot of building and renovation going on, but this did not affect our stay in Istanbul. Cartoon hotel rooms are very basic but quite big and have good sound-proofing. Wifi also worked in the rooms which was a bonus. It is situated facing taksim square, istiklal street and a metro station... More

Cartoon hotel is located few steps from Taksim square, breakfast is great at the roof, staff is very friendly, the hotel is currently under renovation, so almost no lobby or waiting area. Rooms are very small yet clean and well equipped.

The only redeeming part of this hotel was the breakfast - which was quite wonderful. However, I would much rather have sacrificed the delicious breakfast for : 1) friendly and helpful staff 2) quiet and darkness (away from light damage) 3) comfort and amenities in the room service. To start, the hotel staff was very cold when I arrived late... More

The hotel is very conveniently located right next to Taksim Square. You can reach the Istanbul Conference Center by foot in around 15 min and just around the corner from shops and restaurants. Free WIFI which worked well. I was not that impressed by the room, which was both a bit small and quite worn. Had to ask three times... More

It was about 20 – 30 min away from the international airport, and that depends on the traffic, Unfortunate for us there was traffic jammed and the roads to the hotel were under construction The advantage and the disadvantage of this hotel was its location, it’s maybe very close to Taksim Street and Square, where all the shops are; yet...

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.
