I stayed at this Hotel with my family from 28th April for six days. First of all, this is an apartment hotel so don't expect a big lobby or a special view, but the appearance of the hotel is acceptable.| It is at the beginning of the street and your accessibility to the Taksim square is simple and easy. This hotel is about 10 minutes away from the VAC. My room had a street view, and everything in my room was clean and good. There was an electric kettle, tea, and enough coffee in the room, charged every day. The best part of the hotel was their staff. They were helpful and very kind, especially Mr. Mahdi and Mr. Orhan. Mahdi gave us information about Malls, historical places, and the ways that we can go there. He was so polite and provided anything that we need. Mr. Orhan gave us his Istanbul card for public transportation which was very useful. Overall, this is an economy hotel that has good facilities compared to the price. I recommend this hotel to other guests.

I stayed at this hotel for approximately 4 weeks. The stay was excellent. I want to focus on the service their employees provide. Mehdi, Salman, Hassan, and 2 others, my apologies. I can't remember their names. However, if you come, Mehdi is a person who goes above and beyond. I was able to interact with him more, and the special care he takes in everything he does is amazing. From the kindness, he shows tenants to how he handles his work and care for the hotel. Thanks to him, I was able to go to many key places and enjoy delicious food. He had this special care with other tenants. So kind! He is an exceptional employee. I felt like I was family while under his care. Thank you , Mehdi. will forever remember you, and if I ever come to Istanbul, I'm looking forward to staying at this hotel. The other employees are excellent as well, but I commend Mehdi because of his eagerness to help strangers. He is an asset to the hotel. Thank you.
