                          The location of the hotel was great.

                          The aircondition wasnt working in the room and the staff could be friendlier

                          The hotel is well located and nice

                          The staff has no interest in their guests. Many items were broken lights, door, TV. A little effort from the staff would make it a good hotel

                          Location

                          beds were really small for a couple, heating was bad, too much noise due to construction, staff was really unfriendly, better and cheaper hotels in the area

                          The location of the hotel was excellent. It is very close to the Taksim Square and Istiklal St.

                          The rooms are a little too small, but I guess all hotels in this busy area are of a similar nature.

                          Just close to Taksim square

                          Getting communicated with hotel staff , no one bother about the language as none of them understand English. Secondly , Hotel staff has no patient to assist you in a bit complicated stuff... Also they can not handle more than a task .

                          The hotel is 3-star. It is not very expensive but you will pay for all extra: pool, sauna, gym (realy it is not a gym at all). They recommended very expensive tours (for example a half-day city tour cost there 250 eu for person. Internet didn't work on the 7th floor. And it is really unpossible to connect it anywhere else in the hotel.

                          I have travelled a lot throughout the world and it was only hotel where some thing named professionalism was not existing. Hotel reception staff was rude to the limits. I will request every body not to opt for this hotel at any cost. I was not given even a second above the checkout time which is 12. Honestly it is my first experience of life.

                          actually i was lucky that they upgraded me automatically to superior room with sea view and it was perfect view and very good room with very nice bathroom

                          just one thing i had concern that they asked for the full payment upon check in and i was so worried as it wasn't refundable, so i went to check the room first then i paid all the money upon check in

                          Room very clean, very arranged, it's a room five-star, not four, this is the truth .. My room was on the sixth floor overlooking the Bosphorus Strait, wonderful view. The hotel is located close to Taksim Square and Istiklal Street, where the region vibrant with life day and night, but inside the room can not hear any disturbance and sleep in peace.

                          Reception does not reflect the excellent level of the room, the first glance does not give you a sense of comfort, perhaps because of the modest reception, but it's ok.

                          The hotel is very close to the center Taksim Square

                          When I arrived I requested for an iron to iron my shirt.Until now in all the hotels the receptionist usually give me an iron upon my request. When I asked for an iron they talled me to wait a bit and then told me that they can facilitate my shirt to be ironed in a dry cleaner and asked for EUR 6, which is a very big amount in Turkish standards.In the rooms there is humuidity smell which can be a bit annoying and the rooms are very noisy as the hotel is located just by a crowded street.

                          The location is good for those who like night life and shopping, with a lot of restaurants, night clubs and shops. Breakfast is good and hotel restaurant view is nice.

                          Staff at reception was not friendly and asked fro money before even seeing the room. They did not allow late check out say up to 13:00 or later, I have to stay at the reception hall with my wife for a few hours waiting for the flight time and had to go 3 hours earlier to the airport.

                          Nothing special was noticed in terms of customer service and the facilities offered. However the location of the hotel is convinient being in the heart of the city.

                          The entertainment like tv setup was poor.No balconies available in there rooms and the least complementary items like dentist kit and water, tea, coffee, etc, was not available too.

                          The Hotel was well located. THe staff at the reception have an attitude and behave as though they are doing the guests a favour. Rooms are small and so are the bathrooms. But ok overall. The first two days Booked.net charged 80 Euros and the last night the price jumped to 185Euros. That was definately not worth it. But because I had booked I could not do much. The breakfast was alright.

                          The Staff at the reception. Very unfriendly and have an attitude......
