          I do not recommend this hotel at all as it was my worst experience with hotel. No water supply in room for days, very poor breakfast (you can consider no food) very dengoures place for family. So noisy place.

          Good downtown location

          Hotels needs stronger airconditioning to reduce the sound of 5 nearby discothecs and cafe

          Verry nice location for night life and shopping area clean and safe and friendly hotel .......................

        • Group of friends
          3.8

          Friendly stuff that speak English very well.

          Very very small rooms. There are a lot of noisy bars at the street on the front of the hotel that made a lot of noise till 04.00. They did not clean my room every day. The worse breakfast I ever had.

        • Group of friends

          It was very noisy and it was impossible to sleep in the night.The room was very very very very small.

          Location, in the center of istkilal st. Close to Taksim Sq.

          They insist to charge you once you arrive they almost take you passport if you dont wanna pay!!!.. Staff is not very helpful and except for a young guy, cleanness of the rooms is as expected and they dont clean it or change the cheats unless u ask,,, shower was not working... Many bars bellow the hotel and very noisy st, that I could not sleep at night. Staff is rude when you check out unless u ask for a taxi. They even didnot help me with the bags.. Worst hotel I stayed in, not worth the money

          These is one of my begest mistaks in my life.

          4.2

          Location, just off taksim sq and the main road Istiklal cadessi. THe GPS couldn't find it. Directions should say little road opposite the Massive Mango Store.

          The breakfast is sooo drab! Two other guests had screaming matches with staff and owner. The breakfast one day have bugs walking on the bread. Only stay here if you on a serious budget. Hotel staff Member Omar was great at helping with directions and travel whereabouts

        • Single
          7.8

          good location very close to taksim square, clean and quite. Omar and the staff of the hotel are very friendly and able to satisfy your requirements.

        • Older travelers
          2.4

          The only good thing abt it is that it is too close to the shopping area... I gues the hotel is good for young people ....

          Honesly , I did not like the hotel at all ..my nephew made the reservation on the internet ....everything looked perfect tho , the pictures and the nice welcoming and even some good feedback ... however I would like to mention that the day I arrived to the hotel was the big shock to me and my wife ... the service is bad ...the rooms are not well locked and even the doors are so fragile ...the neighbourhood is awful...the staff is so demandable and they even ask you for tips without a self proposal ....I coudlnt unfortunaltely change my hotel and reservation I was with my wife and we had a luggage .. i hope you will leave this comment so that other people check it ....

          close proximity to tourist hot spots

          2 doors down there is a heavy metal bar that plays music until 3-4am and the walls are paper thin so you NEED earplugs. The walls are so thin I could hear my neighbour using the toilet! The taksim area is heavily populated with tourists and the hotel is right in the middle of it so you can't escape the thousands of people (it is difficult to walk down the main road) that visit the area every time you step out of the hotel. The breakfast was truly awful.

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          location is fine, WiFi is good.

          Very very Small Rooms, no Safety Box, no Laundry, i do not recommend this hotel for family especially if you have kids , the reception guy was asking rudely for tips !!!! , very poor breakfast

        • Single
          4.2

          Nothing, really and honestly. - Maybe one thing though. My booking through Booked.net was actually working.

          The "hotel" was a horrific choice I made based on price. Anyone who wants to have any rest, peace, sleep during either day or night should not choose this place. Extreme noise but no isolation. Clubs and bars everywhere, opposite and both sides. Tiny room, crap breakfast.

        • Single
          3.2

          its location, at the center of istkilal street. and easy access to metro, tram, bus station.

          but, i do not recommend this hotel for two reasons. 1. can't sleep at night - because there are many clubs just in front of the hotel and electric musical instrument were played untill 04:00 AM. i read about this at others reviews and i thought they were too sensitive. But i was definitly wrong. i couldn't sleep without listening music with high volume. 2. unreliable staff. - i paid with TL(turkish currency) although i had booked with Euro. when i ckecked currency rate at the airport, the suggested rate was too high.
