Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I very much enjoyed my stay. The location is just fabulous. PCR test was done in a hotel room for everyone while people were waiting in the same room. NOT HEALTHY! Also, cleaning services put my personal things in trash without asking me. The bathroom was not clean, but they moved me to a better room after I complained.

Trip during Covid
The hotel is very well located - right in the center of Taksim. Decent size, clean rooms :) The staff was very friendly and cooperative and that includes the cleaning staff, to the staff at reception, to the breakfast area and generally everyone else. Breakfast was decent considering the covid limitations. Overall a great place to stay!
