            The Cartoon is in a great location. The restaurant on the 9th floor is great for the breakfast buffet. And super view over Istanbul. In 5 minutes walking you are in the heart of Taksim/Beyoglu. For Banking , Restaurant's , Bars , Clubs , Shops ,etc. Staff are always very nice.

Dining room/ restaurant is on the 9th floor with great views over town. They are continually up grading the place. So keep up the good work Cartoon. So Yes I highly recommend this gem of a hotel.

            Convenient Location, Good breakfast, Nice rooms

            This hotel is definitely not a 5-star but it is still pretty good. Check-in took pretty pretty long even though we requested an early check-in. Upon entering the room we discovered that the air conditioning was not working, and the room was extremely tiny, after which we were later to moved to another room. This room was nice and spacious, had no view at all but had a window which was good enough to get a nice breeze because for some reason their air conditioning was down. The breakfast was excellent, they had a lot of variety, be careful of the huge birds that come and sit next to you since they are on the top floor and they open the windows. They could work on that because the breakfast room smells a little like birds and their feces. Overall it was pretty good hotel for us due to convenient location, the taksim train station was a 2-3 mins walk, so was the hayatash bus service.

            Do not stay here.”

            Low price, but thats about it.

            The sewage smell in the bathroom/ room was awful. The air-conditioning was set on hitting only, so it was way too hot in the room. Some rooms are very dark, as they face a dark inner shaft, quite unpleasant. Most of the staff are not very interested in the comments made. On top the Internet is very slow. Not a 4* hotel, I would not recommend to stay here.

            We really enjoyed and even thought of"we had known the place is very very accessble to everything" we should had stayed only there and would not hop to other hotels. for me this hotel is highly recommended. The location is perfect, the bed are very comfortable, room is clean, and food is awesome! Over all perfect for us!

            I was very happy to have such a central location so that after a long busy day I could return easily to the hotel and know I was returning to a clean comfortable room. The mixture of international travelers staying at the hotel added interest to the experience. The hotel has multiple buildings and levels. I was in Building 3 in a corner room so I had a view of two streets.

            i read so many hotel reviews before i decide where to stay in istanbul. to be honest, i was a bit hesitating when i read the reviews of cartoon hotel. but i decided to book it anyway because of its location and value for money. the minute i checked in i realised that the reviews were not very fair.. the reception guy is so friendly and helpful.. our stay in the hotel was for 7 nights, so he voulenteerly gave us a large room even though i booked the standard room. when i walked into the room it was very satisfactory. not very large but large enough. the bathroom was very nice and clean.. no bad smells what so ever. the elevator is not very good but will do the job. house keeping was very good. breakfast was very good and with many varieties, but same items everyday.in general, i strongly recommend this hotel for your stay in istanbul.

            location

            First I need to mention that I have read a lot of previous reviews. A lot of them mentioned the breakfast as being inacceptable, the room to small and dirty or insufficient service. I quickly want to pick up on all these points. The breakfast is simple but you can basically get everything you need - so that was not a reason to deduct points. At least not for me. However: 1. The room was okay from the size. The bathroom was inacceptably small and moldy. I usually do not care about the bathroom size - but this was in fact about 3 squaremeter without window which explains the mold. 2. The room was dirty. That might be due to the fact that they do not clean it. I stayed 3 nights and the room was not cleaned once. The walls were moldy and the bed was about to break. 3. The service is typical turkish. This is a cultural thing an usually cannot lead to deducting points, but this time it was inacceptable. I do not care if they do not care about me, but when I ask a question, I expect answers. They did not want to help me with "good restaurant", "good bar", "way to ...". I got a look and they turned around. Every day, with every question. This is not due to language barriers, because on check in I recognized that their English is of good level. 4. The WIFI might be in existence but does not work at all, at no time. I do not know whether there is a difference between rooms or not and I do not care. Even for such small price hotel was too expensive. The location however, is excellent and close to nightlife, shopping and bars. The location is a good start for any trip. I have stayed in several hotels all over the world and I usually do not care about the hotel because at the end of the day it is normally due to a reason why it is the way it is. Rural areas, lower level or cultural things can make it difficult for certain visitors to deal with the hotel. Therefore I usually do not give a bad review. This time I have to...

            The location is good. Near Taksim Square and shopping location

            The room is really small. Barely walk for 2 person in the room. I got my head knocked twice at the windows and my friend got hit on his back by the shower knot. Really really small.... air ventilation is bad. As it is winter now and only heater in the room, we need to open the window for some air to come in as it is really hot in the room. But the view is back alley! (Not even an alley as it is just a small space between the building, I think it is for the air-con / heater compressor.) So, the air was polluted and hardly for the cold air to come in either. The location is good but could be a bit noisy. I think I will give them a 3 star instead of 4 as what they declare it is.

            Worst hotel in entire Istanbul ”

            Since we entered the hotel at 3 am in the morning no one wanted to help mom in her wheel chair and then they charged us double the price we paid on agoda app .. and gave us a tiny tiny non-lived room .. Whatever we ask them they nag with u and they want to shout for any question we ask .. no helping no welcoming no cleaniness and I have many photos how bad the hygiene in their rooms .. Even the shower was broken and the window was open to the outside which they couldn’t fix it therefore we became soooo cold cuz it’s 4 C Degree at night
