Located in the vivacious Beyoğlu district, the Titanic City Taksim is only a short walk from Taksim square & metro station, İstiklal Caddesi and the Church of St. Anthony. Beyoğlu is abundant with cafés, shops and street performers. Great choice in case you wish to visit different areas during your stay (a short cab ride to Nişantaşı, Eminönü, or Beşiktaş). A cab from the airport (Atatürk) cost 60 TL (35 minutes including a few unnecessary circles). The ride back took over an hour (avoid leaving around 6-7 PM) and cost 70 TL.
Upon arrival I received a fruit basket, and a lovely welcoming letter. Complimentary water, tea & coffee are refreshed daily. Great breakfast, compared to those offered in most big cities- a variety of vegetables, fruits, eggs, cheeses, pancakes, an assortment of jams, pastry. Ingredients are fresh. The breakfast staff is very polite and helpful.
Comfortable room. Natural light, as well as many lighting fixtures. Nice furniture, including a chair, big desk, comfortable armchair, coffee table, bench, 2 nightstands. Nice touches like the lights in the closet and the TV speakers in the bathroom add to the overall positive experience. Toiletries include soap, shower gel & shampoo, conditioner, makeup removing pads, cotton swabs. The Wi-Fi is free and worked perfectly.
The hotel staff is very welcoming and helpful. Although most of the time I was tired and cranky, everybody was very nice, tactful and understanding. I had a problem with long distance calls, and even though it was around midnight I had half of the hotel staff attempting to resolve it for me (and they succeeded- very quickly). The staff speaks English well and is very polite. I honestly did not expect such a wonderful service. Thank you all so much!
