The room was large and opulent with a view of Taksim Square. The room, however, smelled of baked pastry coming from the store below. And the room on this side of the building was very noisy with car horns and sirens.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the square are probably quieter.

Have been in the hotel last year and this year was unpleasant stay, hotel is nicely located in center of Taksim , price is reasonable but not cheap service is very disappointing, looks like hotel is not ready to spend money to renovate the hotel, carpets full of stains and smelly , bed quality is very bad, bathroom amenities very cheap, housekeeping team just vacuuming your rooms only , toilette is very directly and black stains inside, for breakfast it is fair selection of food but not up to 4 stars variety , only cherry juice with no taste , restaurant team are panicking during breakfast time may be they have short manning , never been looking at you and asking on what you request , no greeting when you enter except “Muzafar” , really was very unpleasant stay and will never go back to this hotel “imagine I asked to remove mini bar” and answer was I should pay Euro 10.00 to remove mini bar, they give you 2 bottles of water on your arrival day only just to save may be 1 Lira per day.

Location is good , however , lobby & room décor is of old style. No gym / fitness center as well as breakfast is not included in the room offer.
Even on payment for the breakfast , the Hotels service does not include Omelet

Room Tip: This hotel is located very near to Istiklal road which is very popular for eateries and shopping.

Excellent location in the heart of Taksim Square; however the downside of that was the taxi driver was not able to park the car in front of the hotel so we had to carry our luggage across the street.
The staff were very nice and helpful. The room ( Superior Triple Room ) was delightful with lovely view of Taksim square.
An iron in the room would be nice however the hotel's ironing service was not that expensive. There was no coffee in the tea/coffee making facilities in the room (only tea).

Room Tip: They have classic (Ottoman) design and modern rooms so request what you prefer.

Dear Guest,

We truly appreciate your taking time to share your post stay experience.

We are thrilled to know that our attitude of our team has been met your expectations.

Due to your issues, we provide only kettle instead of coffee machine in our rooms. However, coffee packages are refreshing daily with tea packages. According to our security procedures, we are unable to locate any iron and ironing boards to the rooms. We do provide the ironing service from our laundry.

We hope we could managed your questions well.

We would like to thank one more time for your comments which will be taking us further.
We look forward to welcoming you in a very near future.

Kindest Regards,

Onur Demiralay
