Element Taksim Suites

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 9, 2011

We arrived there early in the morning and although other reviews were talking about a dangerous area we laughed with that because it’s just an old part of the city with some buildings in decadence and full of locals. The little alley isn't attractive but for me it was picturesque (pic 1) and I took some extra pics later with the local kids and women. The building (pic 2) is fully renovated anyway and it’s only 5’ walk from Taxim square so if you want to be right at Istiklal start book a hotel there (and pay the difference).

The only problem was that it’s supposed to be at Cevza 6 and the reception was at number 4 with no sign of anything so we lost 1 hour searching for a phone to call them to see where is everybody! The hotel seems renovated from outside but at the reception (it was tiny) we started to worry about the rooms and how will they look.

The man at the reception was very helpful, asked some questions for some sites we wanted to see and apologized because the room wasn’t ready (we were there early anyway) and when we finally went up to our room we were shocked how good it was!

We had the room (pic 3) at the top floor (4th, there’s no elevator) which was spacious, very clean, with many closets, a fridge, a coffee maker and a small kitchen area. There were 2 beds, comfortable enough but there was a bit noise coming from outside (kids playing etc) but I liked that :) The view was just at the back side of the hotel, nothing more than old houses (pic 4).

The bathroom was tiny (pic 5) but also good, very clean and there were towels and shampoo.

Directions: 5' walk from Taksim square, we walked along Tarlabasi Blv and turn right into Cevza Sokak
