It is likely to be 3 stars hotel. The best thing is the location in taksim square. Rooms are not cleaned well and beds are not wide and very short as I am 1.81 meter tall my feeet were almost out of the bed .

Hotel Review

Posted 02-Jun-2014
Pros: ?
Cons: ?
Location: Location is good but does not compensate for the drawbacks in the hotel.
Rooms size quite small, room night paid was too much for this category of the hotel. B/F was average.

Good but loud

Posted 09-May-2014 on Hotels.com
Germir Palas is very conveniently located near Taksim Square. Only negatives were the nice room with a Bosphorus view was a bit loud from the busy pedestrian traffic. Also the AC was ineffectual, so it was too warm. Nice, helpful staff and excellent breakfast as well as a nice roof terrace and strong hot shower.

comfortable hotel in a great location

Posted 21-Apr-2014
Great location overlooking Taksim square, with view of the Bosphorus from some rooms. Close to many restaurants and shops and an easy walk to major Congress Centres. A longer walk or easy public transport to major tourist attractions in the old area. Buffet breakfast was excellent. My room was very comfortable, but a little dark.

I needed to book an extra couple of nights unexpectedly, and the staff were great at accommodating my request so last minute during a busy time. Would definitely stay here again!

Great bang for the buck

Posted 27-Feb-2014
I paid 85 dollars for the room. Nice nice and quiet. Staff excellent. Right near where you can get havatas bus to airport. 10 turkish lira. 45 minute ride. Used to be across the. Street now a 3 minute walk to bus stop. Also 1 minute walk to metro. I would come back here again. Also as far as breakfast goes alot of places charge 10 dollars more with breakfast included. I am not big on buffet in general so for me not worth it. If there was a chef making you omelette on the spot maybe but that is not happening. Semit place right on the corner with hot bread and muffins for 4 tukish lira with. Tea. Going on your own always the better. Way to go
