This hotel is centrally location to Taksim Square. It is on a pretty hip street where if you want you can enjoy everything right outside your door. The room was very clean and nice. The shower is a little small but for me that is minor. The staff is awesome. Upon check in I asked for a king room and... More

The hotel is located within 20 minutes walking distance from the airport shuttle bus stop (very convenient!). New well-designed rooms, modern facilities, very friendly staff, excellent location near İstiklal Caddesi. The district is very lively, there are a lot of cafes, restaurants and kebab houses around. The only negative thing is that you can't get a good view from your... More

Stories Hotel Kuloglu is one of litterally hundreds if not thousands hotels around Taxim sq and Istiklal road. But what makes it so unique is the unbeliavable boutique ambience, the location, and the unparalleled service of the staff. The location is great, just minutes walk of Taxim square and one step from Istiklal street. The hotel decoration, room functionality and... More

This was our second visit, we'd stayed the previous year and loved the location. The hotel is beautifully designed and the price range really good. We had a deluxe room with a king bed and walk in shower room. Really nice layout. Our only suggestion is to ask for a room at the back (where we stayed previously) so you... More

We walked 10 minutes to Taksim square, took the fenicular from there to the Sultanahmet area. We also went to Galata area from here. Staff was very courteous and was present round the clock --...

This is an excellent hotel within its own price category. Compared to the two other mid-range hotels I've stayed in Beyoglu (and to many others I surveyd from the web), the room was bigger and more stylish. Especially the size is something to consider, because affordable hotels tend to have tiny rooms in Istanbul. Of course, thoughtful simple design is... More

Very well located - it is 2 minutes walk from the center of the Istikal street. The owners have ensured that their guests are comfortable and feel great during their stay at Istanbul. The staff is very friendly. Highly recommended for short and longer stays at Istanbul.

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.
