Depressing!

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2012

During my stay at Riva Hotel Istanbul I can summarize it as the followings:

Pros:
Great location it's close to many attraction and landmarks such as Istiklal Street, Taksim Square and Golden Horn.
room service
Bellboys were helpful even with really bad English.
Cons:
Very old, unmaintained and depressing hotel! I've never seen such a dull lobby, it's very small and dark.
The receptionist was rude, unhelpful and unfriendly!
As for the room its around 6 square meters in total, very basic , small non comfy bed, the bathroom was tiny with Plumbing problems, I had trouble flushing the toilet, There's no bath tub only a shower
The serious problem in my opinion was the very bad sound isolation, we can hear the daily life of the people at the adjunct room and the same with them so it was very embarrassing.
The breakfast during my stay was all about water Melon, every morning I find nothing but water melon and tasteless orange juice/tang!!!
I'll never consider that hotel ever again even for the location!
