This has been my second trip to Istanbul. This time I chose to stay on the Taksim side. The hotel is nestled away on a side street just far enough or close enough to the hustle and bustle of Istiklal caddesi . Which I have to say is amazing. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and the rooms were just the right size. A special thanks to muzaffer and ayhan for making the breakfast experience wonderful. They couldn’t do enough for us. Being from ireland the breakfast was totally different from what I am used to but all I can say is fantastic. And also to Mehmet who greeted us when we arrived and looked after us during our stay well done and thank you . Thanks to the lady at reception whose name I forgot to get thank you for your assistance in organise our tours . Overall a great experience. Thank you all .

Hello |We had bad experience with the manager of the hotel |First night we had no air-condition and the hotel suggested to open the windows. All night we couldn’t sleep because of impossible noise from the street. |We were terribly tired all day. | we asked to speak with the manager and told him to compensate us and he laughed and told us that we can leave the hotel!! Instead of trying to make us satisfied he chose to throw us out of the hotel. |We didn’t leave. But this is not the way of treating costumers. |By the way all stuff in the hotel are amazing and gave us great service. In the desk and in the dining room.
