We loved the hotel. It was clean and right off of a walking street with great restaurant choices, and shops. Because it was off of the main walking street. It was very quiet. The front staff was very helpful offering to help us make dinner reservations and advise how to take public transportation. I would definitely recommend this hotel. And I would stay here if I came back. In fact, our initial reservation was for two nights. And I booked it for the last nights of our stay. The idea was I could cancel if it was not good. But we are definitely going back.

A very welcoming and pleasant team, and an excellent location. Cleanliness can be improved, and absence of small makeup mirrors with the right light was inconvenient. No restaurant, room service or breakfast was possible, no long mirror for checking outfit, and my room had a tiny window that faced a wall.

It is in the middle of Istiklal Caddesi, very considerate and knowledgeable staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Apparently it is owned by the 7 partners that staff the front desk!!

This place tells a story... beautiful place
Lovely hotel with great service and nice big rooms:-) Sadly the twin rooms offer no view - as the window is facing inwards with tiny patio with almost no natural light at all. But if you are anexplorer like me and wont spend much time in the room, this hotel is ideal! Next time i will book double room with view!
