Stayed there with my daughter for a few days and we absolutely loved it. The location is excellent and the hotel is clean with very comfortable beds. The staff are very nice and were extremely helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone..
One of the best hotels in Istanbul. The attitude of the staff, the cleanliness and the location, males it one of the best hotels in Taksim. The hotel is located around 600 mtrs from Taksim sqaure and close to different shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend it to my friends and will definitely be my choice the next time i visit Istanbul.
Staff could not do enough.
The STAFF..remarkably helpful and friendly staff, they made all the effort to make our stay comfortable.many thanks to Sinem, she is the best person we ever met in Istanbul,my wife and me went through a difficult time in our last day and she made all her effort to support us and she was very empathetic, thank you also for mr Momar he is professional.
the room is small, a bit expensive.
clean room, a/c great, very comfortable beds, great decor
The staff was really kind and helpful. The Hotel is very close to the Taksim Square and to the Istiklal Street.
Staff are nice and personable.
it is just amazing by all means :)
Very nice hotel in a good location. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. I can only recommend the hotel to other travelers.
Nice location, and nice reception. We arrived very late and got upgraded to king room. The owner said as we had a long day traveling, the king room will help us rest very well. Love it. Receptionist is very helpful guiding us in the city also help us contact the hotel and travel agency in next stop.
# bed is so comfortable # room service is excellent # Wifi service is good # location is exceptional # front desk staff are very nice and polit
Nothing at all
Location is just perfect.
Our room was small for 3-day trip. No place to open the luggage.
Front of office staff Omer was amazing and super helpful, which we really appreciate given our short time. He helped us call restaurants for bookings, taxis, even Dominos when we craved for pizza! Location is superb albeit slightly hard to find in the first place but otherwise, easy afterwards. Rooms are a tad bit small but wasn't really a problem in the end. Thanks so much for making our stay so enjoyable and pleasant!
Position and kindness of the staff. Comfortable bed and very nice room
Terribly noisy. Almost impossible to sleep for the loud noise in the street
This Hotel became my favorite as I travel to Istanbul regularly & also have Stayed in other hotels. The location of Stories is very good, it's classy & elegant place to stay. The staff are like Family, very approachable, friendly, well educated, speak very good English &ready to assist at any time. Big Thank you to Mr Ali, Ahmet & Omer for their great Hospitality. I definitely recommend Stories Appt. with 100% confidence that u'll never think about any other place. Niveen
The location is very good, worth the value paid
fabulons boutique hôtel. staff were so lovely. I was upgraded to a bigger room and they were helpful for restaurants and safety
It is close to Taksim Square, which has its pros and cons. Provided you are aware of the possibility of anti-government protests and are comfortable with that, the location has other advantages.
everyting. lovely hotel, nice bathroom, daily cleaning, complimentary bottle of water, free wifi, helpful staff...
better ask for quiet rooms if you are planning to stay in the hotel on weekend nights. there is music in the street and a lot of people around!
a good value for money, pleasant butik hotel.
no breakfast - no ploblem, there are lots of good places to eat in that area !
The boutique nature of the hotel as well as the smart decor & great location. Staff were wonderfully helpful & friendly. There is a laundry in the basement. Wifi is excellent as well.
WIFI Access Perfect. Nice 2x2 Bed Nice and modern Bathroom Quiet enviroment inside
The bay window and restoration gave it an unexpected finesse that was most endearing. Soundproofing was quite good, as the street noise was appreciable at times.Thanks to Mehmet for coffee and cakes on my birthday.
We had some difficulty in locating the street as we travelled on foot across Istanbul. Locals directed us well. A more visible sign on the hotel building might be considered.
Very friendly staff Great location
One of the best staying ever. Perfect location - a small sidestreet from famous Istiklal, but no noise at all; helpful friendly staff, a lot of small cafes around - no problem to eat. We were upgraded with the best room by the arrival, it was very pleasant and unexpected. Thanks a lot to all perfect staff at the reception and to cleaning lady as well, and special thanks to Muammer Akerik for being so attentive and simply for the good mood. Adsolutely recommened to everybody.
Travelled with a group of friends and i have to say that we have stayed there like it's our apartment and staff is our family. Felt that really!
