Positive Reviews

Location is a huge plus

Reviewers agree that this hotel's location is easily its most attractive feature. Being a stone's throw from Taksim Square and Istiklal Street gets a massive thumbs-up as it ensures the city's energetic street life and vibrant nightlife is always within easy striking distance. Having handy tram and metro links so close by also goes down well.

Negative Reviews

Poor customer service

The vast majority of people who stay at this hotel draw attention to the decidedly sub-standard levels of customer service on display. Reviewers are uniformly unimpressed with the owner-cum-receptionist, as he genuinely doesn't seem to care whether his guests are happy or content at all. Some guests say he is nothing short of downright rude at times, even to families with small children in tow. Travellers say other staff members have equally poor customer service skills.

Cleanliness is an issue in guest rooms

A great many reviews feature complaints highlighting the generally unclean state of the guest rooms. Stained linens, grubby carpets, and dusty surfaces are just a few of the issues raised on an all-too-frequent basis.

Air conditioning isn't fit for purpose

Disgruntled guests are completely dissatisfied with the air-conditioning units in the accommodations. They are, travellers note, barely functional, and those that do work are unreliable to the point of being unusable.
