Hotel's Favourite
It took hours of researching before we decided to choose the Elite World Istanbul Taksim. Especially since it was our base, a family of 6 adults for an entire week. Factors we considered: 1. location and distance to transport and Istiklal street, 2. comfort and ambience of the hotel especially since we would be spending Christmas week away from home, 3. Size of the rooms, whether it had separate shower cubicles from tubs, 4. A gym facilty, 5. Breakfast that catered to our Hindu palate. The hotel exceeded all the above expectations! The hotel being a mere 300m walk to the Taksim Square where we were able to catch the train on one side, the bus on the other and if we carry on walking straight ahead we landed at the top of Istiklal Street and the tram that took you to the very end of the street. We were met by the friendliest ELEEF at reception on our check-in at 9am. We were extremely tired after a very long flight but her warm welcoming smile made us feel at ease immediately. She explained the different rooms available, the floors they were situated on and the slight street noise on one side. We eventually settled for the room with the street view despite the slight street noise, which muffled once the aircon/heating was on. She even checked in our 3 rooms early, to our taste, including all 3 upgrades! Thx ELEEF, the rooms set the tone for our trip! We received a raw deal from the airline where most of our luggage did not accompany us when we disembarked. We were frustrated with the airline. Helpless in a foreign country. This is where the real star of the hotel emerged. GUZEL KAMCILI. The Guest Relations Manager. From the start till the day we left 7 days later, she held our hands. She called the airlines every few hours, she emailed, she reported back to us, she even gave us her cellphone number so that we could keep in touch when we left the hotel. It took 4 days for the last of our luggage to trickle in, thanks to her perseverance. And when the luggage arrived she actually surprised us with a little party and a trolley of goodies including handmade luggage cookies! My mom was the most affected with her lost luggage for 4 days and GUZEL went over and beyond to pamper mom. We were also celebrating a wedding anniversary on Xmas day, and GUZEL went out of her way to decorate the room! Wow! She would meet us every morning at breakfast, chat for about 10 min at our table, ask about any concerns we have in the hotel, the luggage situation, how our day has been, etc. GUZEL, you are destined for great things and you are an incredible asset to the hotel. Of note was ALI the breakfast waiter, what an attentive star. By the second day he knew exactly how we all liked our eggs done and what we preferred to drink. The cleaning staff too were excellent. The front desk guys especially the night staff whom we called right into midnight for extra coffee, toiletries or extra blankets never grumbled, it was always delivered. I would recommend this hotel without a doubt. I have travelled to many countries and stayed in many 5 star hotels, but Elite World Istanbul Taksim ticks all the boxes.

We stayed for 10 nights, and the entire stay was amazing. The rooms do not have air conditioning during this season but the window opened and it was lovely. All the staff was incredibly helpful and kind... rooms were beautiful, and has the BEST breakfast buffet I've ever experienced in my travels. The location of this hotel is also great! Walking distance to Taksim Square, and short cab trips out to major tourist attractions. I would absolutely stay here again without hesitation!

After the trip to the hotel, my luggage was immediately taken from me and I entered the room quickly. While it was early in the morning, I am very grateful to Mr. Feyze at the reception. It was interesting to me that there was a list of the best people working in the hotel, which helped all the employees behave professionally. Most of the hotels around Taksim Square. They have a small lobby and no swimming pool, but this hotel had a large lobby and a suitable swimming pool with a dry and steam sauna. Excellent access to the bus and metro stations as well as Esteghlal street. The breakfast was good, but it could have more variety. On some days it was more complete and on some days it was a little less varied. Supermarket and pharmacy are located near the hotel. Thanks to the hotel management, which was known to be persistent and did not let things go wrong in the hotel and everything was fine. Considering the reasonable price and the quality provided, I will definitely choose this hotel again. Thank you for caring about passengers.

Perfect, I liked everything,can't fault this hotel with anything! Good location,close to the main street in Taksim,clean,professional staff members! Used the spa, the only thing that I wasn't impressed by it was that in order to use the swimming pool you are required to buy a head cap for hygiene reasons,fair enough I understand but I was asked to pay for it 200 TL. I understand it's the hotel rule, but the head caps should be provided for free if you want to provide an inclusive service for your guests. Would return here again!

I travelled with my partner during Christmas 2023, we were so looking forward to our trip but our stay was completely ruined by the hotel. CHECK IN – when we arrived, the staff could not find our booking. We were told to wait in the lobby and 10/15 minutes later they found our booking. We had already paid in advance, but we were asked to pay a deposit which we were happy to pay but found it odd that check in staff asked us “I am going to need the deposit in cash of $100”. I told him I can pay by credit/debit card but did do not feel comfortable paying cash as I have never been asked to pay cash deposit anywhere else. His reply was “I do not know about other hotels, but it is company policy”. When I refused to pay cash, I was told that as the cash deposit is for minibar, they will empty the minibar. At this point I was not going to argue anymore, and I told him you can empty the minibar which they did at the same time I was shown my room (someone came with a white bin bag and emptied the minibar in front of us – so unprofessional). The overall check in experience was so unpleasant, unprofessional and standoffish. ROOM – the room is very dated, does not have ventilation and was extremely hot. We tried to put the aircon on but whatever temperature we set on the thermostat; it constantly threw hot air (essentially working as a heater). We were so tired, we decided to sleep in a hot room given the check in experience was so standoffish and we did not want any more unpleasantness. The next morning, I went to the front desk and explained that the room is too hot, windows do not open and the aircon does not give cold air and we could not sleep well as we were hot and sweating. I was told that “we cannot change the temperature as it is set to one setting”, I said the room is too hot so we cannot sleep in a hot room so can you please do something about it. I was SHOCKED at the answer “As I explained earlier, we cannot change the temperature, you can sleep in the room, just do not turn the heating on and sleep without duvet”. I did not know what to say. In my travels around the world, I have never come across such bad customer service from a hotel which considers it an international hotel. The room was so hot that we had to open our room door so we could get some cooler air from the corridor. Also, though it was a nonsmoking floor, the corridor constantly smelled of cigarettes as if someone was smoking in the corridors. HOUSEKEEPING – the rooms were cleaned very superficially. The floor was not hoovered every day and every time we saw the cleaner we asked her specifically to clean the floor but sometime it was done and other days it wasn’t. The used glasses and cups were never changed and instead dirty glasses and cups were put back next to the kettle. When we started leaving used glasses and cups in the corridor, they were collected but next day were not replaced so we had to call room service to ask for cups and glasses. OVERALL EXPERIENCE – a hugely disappointing experience, the staff needs training to an international standard. None of the staff members looked happy/smiling or willing to offer help. Our trip was completely ruined because we were unable to sleep properly at night, we felt constantly tired and did not enjoy our trip as much as we wanted to. Please AVOID this hotel if you want to have good holidays in Turkey. Istanbul is an amazing city with plenty of good hotels operating according to international standards and where you are treated with respect.
