Score from 388 reviews Very good
Location is excellent - from Atarturk airport via shuttle bus Havatas, and excellent spot to explore Istanbul. Easy to go to old historical site by public transport, or walking if you have a pair of good shoe and legs. Staffs are all excellent, very helpful, room is clean. Wifi is excellent. Breakfast is standard and not lack of variety. The staff let me did my web check in and printed out boarding pass for my return flight, thus I did not need to queue in the long line for check-in at the airport. Absolutely wonderful and will recommend to anyone going to istanbul.
The only problem is noise from the street can be heard at night and early morning.
The staff was AMAZING!!! Breakfast was fresh and located on their rooftop with great views.
Rooms were small and minimaly designed
Location Nice room Comfortable bed and room, brilliant shower. Excellent varied breakfast on the top floor overlooking the city.
The localisation was perfect, just round the corner from the Taksim square. The staff was very nice and helpful, speaking perfect english. The rooms were nicely designed and clean, and the view frm the rooftop breakfast room was magnificent :) Good wifi.
It is really hard to find minuses. The rooms were small, but what can you expect from a city house located in the very city centre. The price was a bit high, but the reason for that was the perfect localisation, that couldn't be more central. On the weekend when I tried to fall asleep I had to close the window because of the loudly honking taxis just outside. But hey, again - it was the very city centre ;)
Very customer focused and extremely friendly, helpfull staff Perfect tourist guides with regard to what to see, how to get there and where to eat. Very comfortable bed with air con and double glazing. Kettle with tea and coffee Every day the fridge in the room had fruit or cakes provided as well as free bottled water. Midday check out Perfect location for first timers to Istanbul Just 2 mins walk from the metro 2 mins walk from main shopping street and restaurants.
-Extremely friendly personnel -Fantastic location -Nice and tidy room, modern interior design -Roof top terrace with great view
Breakfast is ok but there is room for improvement
Everything, but what really stands out is the team working in the hotel led by the owners. Thank you all for making this a wonderful stay. Highly recommended !
Very warm staff as well as the owners. We felt as home, they were very helpful and caring. The location is perfect right next to the Taksim square. Very good breakfast Eastern style with a very helpful and smiling lady that served us and prepared our coffee. A very sweet gift was given to us at our check out.
The rooms and the facility are clean but they must give attention to the details.
Employees - location - comfort
Excellent location and really genuinely friendly helpful staff
Based on quality of everything else at the hotel I thought the breakfast was not of the same standard.
We had a great experience at the hotel staff and owners very helpful Room was great, everything clean Breakfast was great and the lady very friendly we will recommend the hotel to all our friends and we hope to return to istanbul as people were very nice and the city exceeded our expections very clean, well organised and transport perfect Loved every minute Jasmin and Ned room C4
Great location. Small rooms (pretty normal in Turkey) but nice. Breakfast was to our liking. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good location for Taksim/Istikal and easy to get around the city by tram. Plenty of eating options and mini markets within a few meters.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It felt more like a family pension than a regular hotel. Breakfast on the roof terrace was very nice.
A wonderful hotel - the staff were great in every way - helpful, polite and nothing was to much trouble.
Great manager at reception, Tugay! My respect, friend. His recomendation about Istanbul trip, transport, etc very useful. Not big, but very comfort room. Beautiful view from the roof during breakfast.
Staff extremely helpful and nice. Nice boutique hotel. Good location.
Breakfast a bit disappointed.
The owner was brilliant and staff extremely helpful to the point that you felt like it was a home away from home
Some furniture and parts of the room require their annual fix ups
This is a lovely small hotel off Taksim Square, with a helpful staff, great breakfast buffet and modern furnishings in the rooms (awesome bathroom). This was my first trip to Istanbul and I'd like to return and stay for longer. I debated whether it would be better to stay in the old town near the tourist sites or by Taksim and I think I chose well (because I didn't want to be around tourists all the time.)
Great and welcoming staff at a fabulous location two steps from Taksim square. Small hotel with personal approach - always time for tea and a chat. GREAT breakfast with beautiful views. Nice clean rooms.
Beds were short (but hey, Im 200 cm..) and small.
Great and personal service. The staff were ready to help with everything. Small and intimate hotel where you could really feel like home. Absolutely recommendable.
Nothing except the toilet and shower room of the one person room was quite small - no problem for me but if you are bigger guy or girl...
Staff went out of their way to be helpful. Always greeted us with a smile and willing to help, looking up timetables for wherever we were going. Breakfast was delicious. A great start to the day.
Ramy and the team were exceptional, amazing and friendly service..nothing was too hard and we got the best tips on where to go, where to eat and how to get there. The hotel itself is an oasis in a busy city and we felt at home...clean and tidy and great value for money. The location was a perfect walking distance from Taksim square, shopping galore and easy access to public transport (which we didnt get to use)....thank you Ramy and the fantastic team at Retropera :)..top tip: if you're visiting in summer, book tours to the old city to avoid the long queues in the sun and stay away from taxis unless you book from the hotel!
Dodgy taxi drivers in Istanbul apart from that, the hotel was perfect.
An excellent property with very friendly staff.
Taksim Sq. Location is central but not necessarily most upscale.
Great location, really friendy and helpful staff and good breakfast made to order.
The rooms are rather small and wardrobe space is very limited.
Very friendly Staff. Next to Taksim sq. Excellent!!! Great value!!!
All was ok.
