Me and my spouse were at the hotel in the beginning of April 2013. We liked Stories Hotel Kumbaraci. Everything in the hotel was nice. Personnel is friendly. Service is perfect.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent review. Once you are in Taksim, it is pretty easy to switch into holiday mode no matter what you are here for. It is a special place.

If you are looking for a very clean, attractively furnished, functional, quiet, and comfortable hotel room without the frills (lobby, shops, pool, view), this is a superb choice. The internet service is excellent, as is the heating/cooling system. An added plus is that the staff are very friendly and consistently helpful.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
