First of all if you like fancy views outside the windows and clean streets this place is not for you.
The street This Hotel/Apartment block is in is far away from what typical euro holiday traveller would expect.
However if you here to explore Istanbul at the way it is this probably could be one of your better choice. lets put it that way it felt quite exotic to be in that particular area since people who live around are a lower class citizens.
yet the location is amazing, few minutes walking distance from Taksim Square, so if your trip is about shopping, sight seeing and night life this Apartment block is ideal for you.
I personally got on with staff and as i spent quite some time in lounge i have noticed them being very supportive to their guests,,,, from offering tea, to give advice upon where to go, what to see, etc... I also received quite some advice for my trips and i guess this is the reason why i am writing this review. their English might not be perfect but they will do as much as they can to understand your needs etc...
the area might be quite shabby, but room quality was okay, staff were great, so if you on a modest budget and looking to spice up your journey a bit then why not?More
