We really enjoyed our stay at stories hotel karakol! The room was clean and comfortable and the stuff was very helpful and friendly. Therefore we would totally recommend this hotel!

- Some staff while tried hard simply did not know anything in terms of suggestions of the area (where to eat, where to go, what to avoid as a tourist), so don't expect useful advice on that side
- Good location - Friendly staff that tried hard (Cakir GREATLY exceeded expectations in helping us with logistics/taxi, and should be highly complemented) - Nice rooms - Quiet considering location

relatively small room
Location: next to police station and only 1 minute fro main street. decoration is lovely, very helpful staff

The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Çakir. Our room was comfortable with everything that one needs. Products (shampoo/lotion/slippers etc) were of a good quality, the hairdryer was great, the towels exceptionally soft and the bed comfortable. Location was central, close to Istiklal with enough delicious food options nearby. Definitely a place in would return to.

The main purpose of our visit was shopping so the location of the hotel at the heart of Istiklal and at a close proximity to public transportation was just perfect! We appreciated many of the small details offered by the hotel (e.g. room ironing facilities, scale to make sure we do not have extra baggage weight). Stories Hotel offered everything we needed on a budget; we will definitely stay there in our upcoming visit.

Nothing. It was great
The room was very nice, clean hotel, and great location! We were right in the thick of everything but a block away from the main road, so we enjoyed some peace and quiet too. The staff was super nice too! Would recommend this to anyone

The location is great. The staff is very friendly especially Furkan and manager Muammer Akerik. They were very helpful and accommodating.

There could be a bit more light in the bathroom (a lamp next to the mirror, for instance), to better aid the make up.
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.

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.

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)
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.

the room, the staff

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
Room was nice decor, clean and very nice shower. Staff very friendly and helpful

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
