Hotel staff was friendly, and tried their best to help. Even though their English was limited, there was no problem with basic communication, helping us get taxis, etc. The location of the hotel was good for exploring Istiklal street as it is in one of the narrow alleys branching from the street.
We arrived on a rainy day. Our room was cold, and the ceiling was leaking.
The location of the hotel is ideal for both visiting the city, shopping and going out at night.
There is quite a lot of noise outside at night, yet that is just a general feature of the Beyoglu neighbourhood.- Part of the staff is very friendly and helpful, yet part of them not so much.
The hotel`s location is super. It is only 1 min walking to Istiklal Caddesi - Central street of Istanbul.
The hotel is awful really. There is nasty smell in room, offensive wall which is mouldy, the bed is very small and end-to-end mouldy wall. Me and my husband left this hotel after one day staying here because didn`t asleep during the night because of smell. The bath room is too small and with torn shower. We booked the hotel next door - Paradise with better prices and better conditions, and had breakfast there (it was impossible having breakfast in Birol). By the way, the hotel address in Google is wrong and we waste money and time to find them(((
Nice place for the price they offer. Especially if you stay in the hotel just for a quick sleep. Impossible to sleep in Istanbul...too much to do...too much to see...to much to experience !!!!!!!!!!!
Room was really to small, aprox 9 or 10 sq.m, breakfast was a joke too - some olives, white cheese, half a tomato, 4-5 cucumber slices and a lot of bread.
