Around Crystal Hotel you'll find a lot of other Internationl Hotels on Istanbul's "Hotel Island" just 50 m from the Havas Bus Istanbul Taskim Square. Around the hotel are a lot of nice and international Restaurants (japonese, frenh, turkish, thai, italian...) and the main shopping street is close. Good breakfast, normal rooms. 'Would come back.

We stayed here based on a recommendation from a friend. Either the place has gone downhill since she stayed there or we had some bad luck! The location is good if you want to stay in Taksim - very close to the main drag but quiet. However I would never stay in Taksim again - too crowded, crossing the street...

no A/C and a heavy duvet made sleeping almost impossible. The hotel is clean, the bathroom adequate. The breakfast buffet included a variety of vegetables, yogurt, cheese and breads. Location is far from the Sultanmet district where most tourist attractions are located.

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.
