The Hotel is located in Taksim which is the centre of Modern Istanbul. There are a lot of restaurants in the vicinity. The room rate is decent and the rooms are well kept. Actually the rooms in all hotels in Taksim are small .. this is a good place when the room size comes in the picture. The restaurant gives...

It is a nice hotel to stay in Istanbul. There are lots of shops around and the things they sell are quite cheap. When you visit Turkey, never miss buying the brand 'Missbon' coffee flavored candy/sweet. It taste heavenly nice. The cheapest shop around the hotel is sem shop (if i'm not wrong). They sell it at 0.75 YTL while...

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.
