As others mention, it is in a nice neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shops and reasonable access to public transport (with a walk up/down a significant hill. Hint - when returning to the hotel from the old town, take the tramway up the hill, slightly past the hotel, then it is...

Love the hotel, laid back and trendy, staff really attentive, breakfast is great, roof top is cool, lovely view, fab cocktails and liked the background music. Bang in the middle of a really up and coming trendy area, local shops and restaurants provide a really nice way to walk out and enjoy the ambience, cafe bar culture amongst craft shops.

Not a beat is missed at this hotel. Impeccable rooms, very friendly staff, and the best views in town. The restaurant's meals were well prepared and proportioned, house breakfast offered a good selection of traditional and Turkish fare; clearly also a favorite hangout for the locals.

The hotel was almost directly opposite the AirBnB we stayed in and we had cocktails in the rooftop bar/restaurant overlooking the Horn.

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.
