      Only plus is location”
      The only plus for the property is location. As claimed hotel did not seem a 4 star property. My room phone remained out of order for the two nights I stayed. I was told that hotel did not provide a dental and shaving kit (first time ever I got to hear this at a hotel). Food options at hotel are limited and the room seemed cramped (very different from the pictures). The only thing that worked for me was the location. Metro station is around 250M-300M and you have a few food options available near the hotel.

      location, view from breakfast restaurant, helpfull staff
      At first, when I checked in, while at the lobby I got the wrong impression of the hotel, the lobby is perhaps the weakest point of the hotel, other than that I definately know, when I return To Istanbul, this is my Hotel. The location is 3 minutes walk to Taksim,airport bus. We walked to the grand Bazaar, perhaps 20 minutes. Great money value.

      Worst experience. Worst customer service”
      I booked room from agoda with CITY VIEW but when i arrived the hotel they treated us as we were staying for free. Reception staff was very rude and they gave us a very small room in the basement which was -3 floor down and atmosphere there was very damp. They told us that bookings made through agoda are only in basement with no window as they give comission to agoda and told us to talk to agoda. We tried calling agoda several times but after holding for 10 to 12 minutes every time call was disconnected. As the booking was non refundable we stayed there Worst experience

      A good inn in Istanbul”
      The location was excellent for tourists, the staff were competent and friendly, and the rooms clean and comfortable.
      My stay was pleasant with the staff being very helpful in giving me information about how to get to various places in Istanbul. A minor problem with the in-room safety box was handled quickly and efficiently with no fuss. My room was on the -3 level but still had a window. Rooms on the upper floors had rather nice views of the Bosphorous.

      Comfortable room, rude staff”
      Room and bathroom
      I had booked a double room, and was given a triple room. I returned to the reception desk to be moved to a double room. The reception in charge was extremely rude, saying that there is no difference to a triple room and a double room!! So rude! He eventually gave me the appropriate room without the least being courteous. Breakfast was adequate, quiet a reasonable selection, but again Staff were extremely rude. None of them greeted the guest. I asked to be seated they only responded in a horrifying look as if scared of being asked. When it was the last service for bfast, kitchen staff just abruptly took all the food for the serving station, coffee machine turned off and covered. There must have still been around 20 people at the restaurant, any they could have done it subtle without making so much noise. Overall, Hotel room and facilities was not bad however staff need a lot of training as they are absolutely not fit to be working in a hospitality industry as none of them knew how to be hospitable towards their guests!

      Very centrally located, transport and shuttle bus is near, rooms have everything, bathroom modern and clean
      I travelled alone, because I was meeting friends the next day. The lobby and a part of the hotel is in construction, but please read further!!!, because I didn´t notice it in the room. The staff tries to treat you as well as possible, most of them speak English and they we´ll explain everything to you. The room was originally a budget room, yet because of some changes I got to a better room, and it was! The beds are comfortable, clean and the bathroom with a rain shower is really nice and nice renovated in a modern style. I enjoyed my stay.

      super location ,clean and tidy hotel
      The hotel in itself is good but the ambiance is not inviting. The staff mind their own business and not at all inviting. May be this hotel is good for business with a short stay say a day or two. The striking advantage is the location - its just there at the Taxim square.Taxim itself is a commercial city unlike Sultan ahamet - hence there is no fun for a holiday maker in taxim. Thousands of people are just walking up and down ! i did not see many people buying anything! This street is similar to the Lalambra street in Barcelona but the latter is more fun. Taxim street must benchmark barcelona and make the street more fun

      Location is definitely the selling point.
      The staff is bit cold, perhaps that is the Turkish culture. The breakfast spread was not inviting at all. The way to the room looks so cramped and lights will be switched off automatically which scared me a few times. I might consider going back. I bet it is a normal practice for hotel to charge tourists for the city guide and map.

      Not very nice at all”
      Close to Taksim and towels were sort of ok
      I stay in a new hotel about twice a month, and sometimes i just pick what looks good at agoda. most of the times it works, so i keep on using agoda for booking. But sometimes you get a hotel that agoda might not want to work with - Grand Star is such an example. (And possibly their sister-hotels, all having similiar names) Staff was quite unfriendly, ambiance lacked, it was noisy both from other guests and from repairmen doing odd-jobs around the clock. Worst was that my room, which could not be changed, was three stories under lobby-level and faced a tiny backyard with a fire escape directly outside that was covered in orange tarpaulin. Awful. Room otherwise small and smelly. Looks from breakfast buffet room was good though. But that could be had from other nice places too... Recommendation: find another hotel.

      fab location 300 metres to taksim sq and istiklal st which is a great walking street full of cafews, restaurants, and shops. metro and bus terminus at taksim, and a short minibus drive to ferry ports.
      free wireless was very slow .....probably due to many log ons......much faster at 5 am
      room was good sized, clean and quiet, even though close to action. Breakfast included, and is decent and filling.Spent a week and was very satisfied with all aspects of hotel. includes free wireless in rooms and pay computer in lobby. Location is very central to modern istanbul, and all other areas of this large city can be easily reached by public transportation. Check out also the 'minivan' taxis that run a prescribed route for just 1 1/2 lire.
