I have never seen any hotel as bad as this one. It's crowded and noisy, the rooms are all crammed. The picture frames are bigger than the TV screen! The halls are all dark and dirty, and the carpets look like they haven't been cleaned in years. I would never recommend such a hotel. There were only two small towels...

The hotel is located near metro and Ito us station. The most important thing that the Havatas bus (airport bus) is across the street. Staff is good, house keeping staff don't clean rooms very well, the a/c doesn't work properly. I spent a lot of time fixing some problems in the bathroom. It is expensive comparing to the services provided.

Have you ever wanted to go back in time? Here's your chance. The Crystal is a shining example of the generic large scale hotels that have been built in Istanbul in recent decades. Walking into the large reception with its purple marble floors and wooden walls, you could be mistaken for stepping back to circa 1990 with its imitation grandeur....

The hotel was quite old, rooms were small and beds were tiny. I stayed there for 6 nights and had almost the same Breakfast everyday. The staff were absolutely rude and helpless. However, it's placed in a quiet area, near the underground station and you can simply walk to Istiklal street. It's very easy to get there from the airport....

This 4 stars hotel is used by a lot of people in Istanbul and it is where we landed for 2 nights after our THY flight was cancelled.THY paid our full board, fortunately: on inspection we discovered that the room price was 235 EUR/night, breakfast included. Now this is a ridiculous high price for the service offered there: the rooms...

Hotel is located just 50 m from Taksim square, commercial center of newer part of Istanbul. All around it are small streets full of restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops. Just walk down the hill and you may find yourself in busy Osmanbay, great shopping zone. From Taksim take Istikal street (pedestrians zone) that will take you for kilometers of walk, enjoying...

I stayed at this hotel for two days during a business trip. This hotel is located in Taksim and it is surrounded by more than 20 other hotels. This area is very near to Havataş shuttles which provide easy access from İstanbul Atatürk Airport. Taksim is also a wonderful destination for any tourist who comes to İstanbul. These are the...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
