Positive Reviews

Great views

Rooms facing the water offer wonderful views of the Bosphorus, which guests say is a great way to start to the day. Guests who dine on site also enjoy the same awesome views from the restaurant.

Handy location

Guests like that they are situated right next to Taksim Square, Istiklal Avenue, the metro station, and many other attractions in the middle of the surrounding district. Getting around to the must-see attractions is reportedly a breeze.

Affordable accommodation

The room prices here, according to travellers, won't break the bank. It may not be five-star luxury that guests are getting at this place, but the affordable nightly rates more than make up for it.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast is disappointing

Even though the breakfast buffet is included in the room price, guests don't find it to be all that memorable. From faulty coffee machines to overworked and seldom seen waiters, the first meal of the day is sometimes dogged with little problems that take the shine off guests' experiences.

Extra charges and problems with facilities

Guests who need their luggage stored by the front desk are sometimes surprised and disappointed to find there's an additional charge added to their bill. Those who want to use the sauna also find additional fees are added. Additionally, the lift is said to be a little dicey, while the Wi-Fi signal is often described as being intermittent at the best of times.

Sluggish service

Travellers who request that housekeeping clean the rooms are occasionally left wondering if it's ever going to happen. Those who require something from the front desk get the same slow response at times. Indeed, some reviewers are unhappy that they have to visit reception in person to get their requests dealt with after initially making contact by phone.
