Warm rooms, cozy, clean. Full breakfast and helpful stuff. Only 3 minutes walk from Istiklal street although we had to pass from moody streets because of the closing and renovation of Taxim Square. Wifi connection was difficult for some reason.. Overall a good impression :)

You couldn't ask for a better location that is actually quiet at night in Istanbul. Just meters from the Taksim metro, buses to the airport and a short walk to the nighlife. Room was clean and the beds were very, very, very firm

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.
