Rooms were not calm (if someone whispered in the street you could hear it). Finally, we arrived on Wednesday and told them we wanted to extend our stay...

I booked this hotel for its close proximity to Taksim Square. It was rated 4 stars and maybe in turkey this is correct and true, but the cracked bed head and unfinished bathroom tiles suggest otherwise 3 would be more accurate. Dirty plates were left in hall ways for days as well as linen and full rubbish bags( this didnt...

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.
