    Location in Istanbul (Taksim area).

    Buffet breakfast is way below expectations. Other nearby 4 star hotels have much better buffet breakfast based on our experience, and offer a wider variety items. Other than that, the indoor swimming pool is not managed by the hotel. One time, we got stuck in the pool because they had no towels, and at another time we saw cockroaches around the pool area.

    Five minutes walk from Taksim square.

    Not all of the personnel speak English, breakfast was also very bad and the area quite noisy all day.

    Fabulous

    The hotel rooms were tastefully decorated. The hotel is conveniently located near Taksim square. If you have a room on an upper floor, you may have a really great view of the city.

    The hotel could improve its customer service. When I arrived, I was given a room smaller than the one I reserved. When I asked to be changed to the room I booked, I was told that the hotel was full and that there were different size single rooms. If you book the smallest single, be prepared for a tiny room with no window.

    Location, breakfast

    Design of rooms, cleanness of rooms, there are no room free of scratches on walls, or cigarets burn marks in toilets, or distorted wall paper, or leaking marks near ac...... And price is really high! Comparing with other much much better hotels!

    My room was without window. The cooling system was not workimg due to season. The result i did not need to go spa, my room was more hot than a hamam.

    Good

    Location of the hotel is excellent.

    We stay at the hotel on march 2013. Because of the renovation on the hotel, there was a heavy smell of painting and thinner. It was very hard to breathe inside of the room. But it will be a preferable hotel a few months later.

    location ,friendly staff

    I was charged by Hotel.com TRL 969 at the time of booking in November ,and later i recieved a statement from my bank for this amount and i paid. on arrival at the hotel on Dec.2012 i was asked to pay again TRL 1003. can you please explain. i checked with my bank they told me another statement for TRL 1003 will be sent to me to pay. this means i will be charged twice!!!

    The location is great, but as of Dec 2012, surrounded by roadworks. Food is ok abd staff very friendly.

    Rooms are tiny, with very little storage space. The soft furnishings were pretty grubby. Fractured approach to room service meant the bathrooms were spotless, but we couldn't get the coffee supplies replaced!

    Hotel ligt vlakbij Taksimplein.

    Prijs/kwaliteit is erg slecht. Voor dit geld heb je betere hotels in Istanbul. Ontbijt was ronduit slecht, airco doet het niet, bedden zijn gammel en licht in gangen zijn in de nacht uit.

    Only the location was good. And zwimmingpool was Ok! Toch was een heel kleine hokje.

    Ja, de personeel was onprofessioneel, grotendeels. Ze waren ook een lang uren aan het werk minimaal 12 uur en dat gaat ook ten kost van hen humeur en fucus. Restaurant was heel erg onverzorgd. En de prijzen waren niet verhouding van omliggende restaurant. Elke dag was ruzies tijdens ontbijt. Communicatie probleem, men over algemeen spreek nauwelijks Engels. En dat was heel erg moeilijk communiceren. Het was not mogelijk om de strijkijzer te gebruiken. In hel hele hotel was dit dienst niet beschikbaar, je moest buiten laten doen en kost nog duurder den in Newyork.
