As an Ambassador IGH member I was expecting the same level of service I had whilst in Sydney. This is my second visit to this property. Reception staff is always very friendly however I was allocated a smoking room even though I asked for non smoking. That was rectified as I returned to reception. I was supposed to be upgraded...

Highly friendly and caring staff, clean room, rich and very nice breakfast buffet, impressive location very close to Taksim Square. I have one single complaint and that is when I requested them to clear the bar so I can bring my own drinks and snacks. I was told that they will charge me 10 Euro for that. I think that...

Great location of the hotel with friendly staff. For sure one of the greatest views from rooms. Standard room is extremely small. Being in the hotel, easy to feel that hotel was built long time ago and urgently needed renovation. Highly recommended for everybody who's looking to stay in the heart of the city and closer to Maksim metro station

I stayed in this hotel in 1988 when it was Sheraton. The hotel is almost the same. It was renovated 20 years ago. It needs to be renovated. It is not worth living in now with the exception of the view. The hotel has potentials which are not capitalized especially its location. We had to cut our stay shorter and...

We were greeted with a welcoming reception. They checked us in early which was a bonus. Very local to Istiklal Caddesi and Dolmabahce in the other direction.

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.
