Booked this place through a booking engine, requesting a twin room to share with a female friend. On arrival, we were asked if we were married to share the same room! What the weird show was that at 2:30AM? Tired of a delayed flight from Cappadocia and rushing to see a long waited DJ performance at a nearby club, we...

Not what I was expecting for the star level (three) it had through the booking site I used. Room was very basic- which was okay, but the bed was stiff and uncomfortable and made a lot of noise every time I got up or moved. A chair to sit in would have been nice since I spent evenings inside the...

The Balo hotel is perfectly fine for a short stay and would only recommend it to either the very young or the young at heart. The very loud music in the bars literally next door goes on until at least 5 am. I went there to party so was not a problem for me, but on my 3rd night I...

It was clean and nice hotel, nice location; just 15 minutes walk from Taksim Square and 2 minutes from istiklal street and 2 minutes walk from bus station. Nice staff especially the lady and no big problem of sound around. I would like to stay there again.

This hotel is located very close to the Istkilal street and Taksim square. But, the main problem is the noise around the place, tens of nightclubs and crowded street with youth who attend these activities. Sound can reach your room easily day or night (night is the worst). The breakfast is very basic, cheese, toast, tomato, cucumber, tea or instant...

Hotel Balo is an extremely basic hotel apartment on Balo Street, a branch on Istiklal Street which is the most happening street in Istanbul. Balo Street offers loads of restaurants, pubs and clubs 5mins walking distance away. The room was small. We had barely any place to keep our suitcase. The toilet is quite small where you cannot take a...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is difficult to locate this hotel, which is situated in one of the many streets in Istikal Cd but it is also very close to where most of the action happens on Taksim Square. You have the best restaurants, bars, stores very close by. The rooms are quite small, but they are good...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
