The Hotel is great, the staff is very accommodating. The dissapointing part was that the roof top bar was closed, but it still offered a fantastic 360' view of Istanbul. As you walk out the door to the right is a great restaurant. My son and I had a grilled meat platter that was for 2...it could have fed 4 or 5 easy and it was less than $30 us. The hotel is also 1/2 a block away from a great shopping street that ends up in Taxim square. This is my 2nd time here and I will be back. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous and the wait staff will get you anything you'd like. 5 start for the hotel!!
We stayed here for a week. If you want to be in the heart of a bustling commercial street, this is it. Even though Istiklal Street is pedestrianized for most of the day, the hotel is close to public transit, and a short downhill walk to taxis near the five-star Pera Palace Hotel.

Beyoglu, the heart of Istanbul? Istiklal Street, the heart of Beyoglu? And right there lays a very special hotel blending the …More
Best view in town on the Restaurant level (5th floor). Breakfast buffet does not contain that much but considering you eat all the time in Turkey, it is not a real concern. Room was great, nice bathroom, high ceilings. Can't wait to go back.
The Beyoglu-Taksim district is on the European side of Istanbul, across the Golden Horn from the historic city centre. “Beyoglu” generally refers to the area in Taksim between Taksim Square and the Tunel (subway). The district has traditionally been the most European quarter of Istanbul, with many consulates and embassies. It remains famous for its arts, entertainment, and nightlife.
