    Profile: Taksim

    Profile: Taksim

    Taksim Square is in the district of Beyoglu, on Istanbul’s European side. Restaurants, bars, and luxury hotels surround this bustling tourist and transport hub. At the square, you can board the old-style red tram to roll along the pedestrianized shopping avenue of Istiklal Caddesi—Independence Avenue.

    The Atatürk Cultural Center, known as AKM, is an iconic Istanbul landmark. The complex holds two concert halls where you can enjoy top-class performances put on by the national theater, opera, and ballet companies. Next to Taksim Square is Taksim Gezi Park, a picturesque urban green space with a children’s playground and dolphin fountain.

    8.2.Very good.
    • 10.0.Exceptional

      We booked the junior suit with Galata Tower view and it was splendid. Airy apartment with small Juliet balcony, very sunny, spacious bedroom, good size dining and living area, small kitchenette. This is the best location you can get, old town on a hill and within less then 5 min walk to the main shopping street yet in a quiet location with spectacular view. The reception is very helpful Murat, Erbil ( ordering take away food for us) polite and welcoming. As Covid restriction have changed in Turkey after our arrival (mid Dec) we had to self-isolate for 10 days ( as we traveled from the UK) but as we booked 3 weeks here this wasn’t an issue for us as we were recovering from cosmetic treatment and the hotel was very supportive, delivering us all essential to the door on daily basis. The Internet connection was good ( I used it for work),in front of the hotel there is a metro station ( we didn’t use metro) as walking distance everywhere and a picturesque square where many visitors come and seat on a stairs & enjoy the view. We would be very happy to come back.

    • 8.0.Very good

      The only positive is the lication

      Hotel's location was good, however the price was overrated for what they offer. Cleanliness was below average, bathroom has stains, lack of amenities only 1 small shower gel and shampoo for 2 people. Mattress and pillows were not comfortable at all. The desk legs were broken so beware. The breakfast was limited and on the last day we were offered frozen fruits and NOT fresh, very disappointing. 1st day breakfast was late by 30 minute for a fruit salad. Not to mention that we were refused accees to the rooftop restaurant without a booking, while the receptionist confirmed reservations are not required. Overall, if it is not the location, i wouldn't rate it good.

      Very friendly, helpful staff. Cleanroom, though a touch of renovation is needed. Close to restaurants and shopping. Galata tower is a few meters away. Metro station is steps from the hotel.

    • 6.0.Good

      The location of the property is excellent but there are issues with noise, and the size of their ‘standard rooms’. I have never stayed in such a small hotel room before. May be suitable for solo travellers. Not suitable with couples. (If you still have to book one of their standard rooms, opt for the ones in the upper floors in order to avoid noise as much as possible.)
