I feel sure that I booked a room with a bathtub, but apparently they have none. At the moment two buildings are being demolished in front of the building, which makes the view from the window like a demolition site. Very close to Taksim Square, and hence to the upper end of Istiklal Caddesi, which is a good location. I...

I stayed here for a week in a triple room.the room was extremely small and we could hardly move or we'd bump into each other.The room was clean except for the floor which was not vaccumed and the house keeper didn't vaccume it either. Other than that the rooms were cleaned every day and towels were changed. Breakfast was good...

Breakfast was included and ample choice and not always the same every morning . Hotel staff helpful and courteous. Very close to Taksim Square and metro making it...

Please avoid this hotel if you do not want to get mad. Hotel staff are so rude and do not care about guest satisfaction at all. There are so many other hotels near hear and there is no reason to choose this hotel.

I stayed there for a couple of days, and I like it. It's clean, the staff are kind, the location is great. So near from Taksim square. I may try it again, it's cool for couples, though I was alone, but It still has a good and quite atmosphere. I didn't try the food. It has many restaurants nearby.

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.
