Simple and nice 4-star hotel @ Taksim
The triple room that my friends took was a bit small-ish but enough to move around, much like the size of the twin room we got.
Warning: Don't get the room with adjoining door if you know that you're noisy or the other way around. The other room will hear your voice unless you whisper or talk moderately. We got this room and we were knocked once because of the volume of the tv and our talks during one night we went home from a bar.
Location is really good, few walk to Istiklal Cadessi and the main square and the restaurants and fastfoods just around the corner at the main square, including McDonalds, Burger King, local eateries.
Room was clean, nice small beds for twin rooms, comfortable comforters and pillows, tv with english channels, view nothing to boast of - facing the other hotel building - the hotel has 2 buildings, one along the main road, the other at the back. Maybe the rooms along the main road are more noisy, ours not.
Bathroom with tub, and the usual sopa and shampoos and clean towels.
The hotel is big-ish so staff are not really that sooper friendly but the staff at breakfast table are nice. Sit at the far right when u enter the breakfast saloon to have a view of the marmara sea. The breakfast itslef is really good, lots of choices, fresh squeeze orange juice at extra charge. Hearty.
At Euro60 for twin room - it's a comfort. This price is a walk-in rate.
Recommended. Good breakfast, clean rooms, and great location - at the happening area near bars, clubs, food, etc...
