Now we are at the hotel. We ckecked in yesterday. And our room is on the 5th floor. The room is so quite and it's clean. The carpet has stain on it but it's not dirty at all. The bathroom is super clean and that's the main positive things for me in the hotels that we search for. Yilmas is...

The moment I arrived the hotel I was welcomed warmly. I checked and went up to my room to find it little bit too small with the safe not working.. I went down to the reception to ask for a better room and an employee there named Yelmas helped me out and he very nice, they gave me a better...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. The price was very very good comparing to its perfect location at Taksim square. We had a spacious triple room (our reservation was for a double room). The breakfast was delecious with a good diversity. The hotel has a nice small indoor pool.

Great Great location ( near istiklal street and Taksim Square), close enough to the train station , the room is okay except the bathroom sink was plugged , but the service was not good. Good food variety in breakfast and Free WiFi is Available.

I didn't like the hotel at all. First of all, the staff was unfriendly, unkind and unhelpful! I could hardly understand some of them because they did not know how to speak the English language! And there was no room for my luggage and the bathroom was too small!

We stayed for 3 nights , breakfast is good . Pool is small. It's better to be in rooms upper floors. In some rooms view is very bad. Prices are not bad. Location might be the best positive point , just a few minutes to Taksim sq.

We were there for the Easter. Location is great. Plased at a safe protected and quite district right next to taksim square and the pedestrian street of Istiklal among shops restaurants and others hotels. Further than the location it is a mediocre hotel... more likely a 2* star hotel...and a little expensive for what it offers. The area of the...

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.
