I stayed in this hotel for two nights. The price was very very good comparing to its perfect location at Taksim square. We had a spacious triple room (our reservation was for a double room). The breakfast was delecious with a good diversity. The hotel has a nice small indoor pool.

I didn't like the hotel at all. First of all, the staff was unfriendly, unkind and unhelpful! I could hardly understand some of them because they did not know how to speak the English language! And there was no room for my luggage and the bathroom was too small!

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.
