10/10 Exceptional

It is a small hotel , but comfortable and economic. easy access to everywhere near Taxim . Isteklal street is 1 minute walk , Taxim square is 5 minutes walk . Easy access to all transportation. The room was a bit small Or maybe my room was small . I stayed on 3rd floor . But the good thing is that the rooms are sound proof . And air-conditioned . I will definitely stay there again . Oh by way the for those who travel with car , this property don’t have car park nearby , but there are few paid car parkings about 5 minutes by walking distance.

Centrally Located.
A nice hotel right in the centre of the party area. Shower was good. Bed was super-comfortable. Pillows need to be changed. They are stained. Staff friendly and helpful.

A huge effort must be made regarding cleaniness. I was mislead by pictures and comments, but it wasn't as expected. The good point about the hotel is the location that is in the middle of Istiklal street.
