You couldn't ask for a better location that is actually quiet at night in Istanbul. Just meters from the Taksim metro, buses to the airport and a short walk to the nighlife. Room was clean and the beds were very, very, very firm

I can not sat that I am nagging traveller but this time I was disapointed. First receptionist whom I met was very unfrendly. Bellboys were much more helpful even with really bad English. They claim that rooms have free WiFi. Yes, you don't have to pay because there is no WiFi in the rooms! There was WiFi in the lobby...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my family before we moved to another hotel. The rooms smelt like smoke each evening when we returned to them, and at one point matches were left in one of them. I suspect that whoever was cleaning our room smoked while doing it. The rooms were actually pretty well decorated and...

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.
