Loved the always nice and available staff. The room is just lovely with super nice decor. Room will all amenities. Absolutely well located to lots of restaurants, shops and bars and 3min walk to Taksim Sq.
There could be a bit more light in the bathroom (a lamp next to the mirror, for instance), to better aid the make up.
Location of the hotel.
very good location, very clean. The fact not to be able to take breakfast in the hotel was absolutely no problem, because they are many possibilities in the immediate surrounding.
My taxi driver had trouble finding the hotel intially. When he contacted the hotel staff, the night manager didn't just give him directions, he waited outside the hotel for us! It was after midnight - fantastic! The room was gorgeous and plush. Location was fantastic.
There's not food at all available within the hotel (other than the mini bar). Yes, there are a multitiude of food options just outside.. but if you aren't feeling too well (I had a migraine one day), it's nice to have at least one on-site option too (eg. buffet breakfast)
Nice, comfortable & great place to explore istanbul the staff was very helpful especially mr. cakir thank you
Everything was perfect, the manager and the staff are very polite and efficient.
This is my third booking at the stories chain after staying at Kumbaragi and Kuloglu before.The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. The suite completely exceeded all expectations. Location was EXCELLENT within walking distance to the many shopping and dining places.
I love the staff and hotel amenities, very modern and stylish, well stocked and great location to central shopping and eating area.
the room, the staff
the street, hard to find, difficult to get a car (including taxis) to the hotel, a lot of noise from bars and music venues
Room was nice decor, clean and very nice shower. Staff very friendly and helpful
Now I know Istanbul better, this location isn't really my favourite. Not a bad place to be at all, but I think around Galata tower is a bit nicer for me
the helpfulness yet discretion of the staff; the position and the comfort
Central location, helpful staff mambers, tidy and comfortable
everything in this hotel is great the location is perfect near shopping street istklaal near night life near EVERYTHING
the day when the elevator didn't work had to go 5 floors :)
Comfortable clean quiet good location value for money
I have no complaints with this hotel. Everything was first rate: decor; service; location etc. the bathroom was the best feature: very modern with a large walk-in shower. And, lots of water pressure. Will stay again on my next trip. Highly recommended! H Ernest lee
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..
i liked the room decoration ,the bed was superb, everyday they cleaned the room and changed our bathroom towels and bed sheets ,free water bottles ,very nice and polite staff (they treat me turkish coffee in the lobby).
nothing everything was perfect
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.
Don't be mislead by the filthy street at which the hotel is laid. The hotel's interior is very nice. The rooms look newly furnished and they are cristal clean. The bathroom is very nice. The stuff is extremely nice and helpful. The location is perfect, very close to Taksim squere. Nevertheless, you don't hear the noise of the Istiklal Caddesi.
The standard rooms are a bit small but we have been updgraded for free. The only one drawback I can come up with is the lack of breakfast. Naturally, there are a lot of places nearby where you can find food at decent price but it is very difficult to get a light European breakfast.
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.
new hotel, clean and comfortable rooms though small. don't expect the world out of this hotel as it is small and boutique, but the location is brilliant and 200 mtrs from istiklal. very close to taksim square, all eating and shopping on istiklal is very convenient. value for money in this price
wifi can be better, but generally in all of turkey wifi signals in hotel rooms is a problems unless sitting in the lobby or common area
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.
