Staff service can be improve”
The room facilities is good, especially the shower water strength and temperature is perfect. The only disappointment is the staff service, very slow and not prompt. Only help when u offered tips upfront - still has room for improvement.
You can find a cheaper place”
The room was nice, the bed and facilities were excellent, but it was very dark (windows to the lobby, no natural light) and noisy (again, windows to the lobby). In general, it is a very noisy neighborhood. I advice to be very specific about your room choice - do not accept rooms on floor 1. Or find a cheaper hotel with better location.
Friendly staffs, not a good location for family”
The room we stayed was next to Istiklal street. We were hardly sleep every night due to the busyness on the street. One day the person from the next room told us to keep quite because they want to sleep, meaning the rooms was not sound proof. The bathroom door is made of glass and having no lock, it is suitable for couples but not for our family. We don't want to make any trouble on our stay so we did not complaint anything. For foods and shopping, the location is the best in Istanbul.

Perfect Location for shopping”
It was right next to the busy Istekal Street. So was a perfect spot if you are in Istanbul for some shopping. The hotel is a little cramped but some of the rooms are nicely done. No parking at all. All the rooms are non-smoking.
Beautiful hotel, but with some slight hiccups”
This hotel is very stylish and in the heart of Istanbul. There is a busy shopping street nearby, so great for someone visiting the city for a few days. We paid for 'Superior' room with terrace and seaview, but honestly, we would have been better off with a standard room. While it was well-decorated, it was very small and the 'terrace' only had space for two people to stand (too small for even a single chair), the seaview was far away and to the side, so really our view was into the balconies of other buildings, which were not very clean. We had problems with the terrace door, which was partially broken, the air conditioning was also a bit broken and the shower door didn't close properly, so water got EVERYWHERE. The fixtures were all beautiful, with a Smeg fridge, a Bose speaker, etc. and great breakfast.
Room overbooked transferred to another hotel”
We did not get to stay at Occidental as room was overbooked they transferred us to another hotel Barcelo which was not far away. A few other travellers experience the same problem as us.
Dear Narutikah, Overbooking is a highly exceptional situation for Barceló that is prevented by proceeding with a sales stop on all sales channels whenever we reach a certain amount of bookings for a same period, unfortunately it may happen that a booking is made simultaneously and passes through. In these cases, we immediately inform the collaborating travel agents so as to offer an alternative accommodation in the same area and with similar characteristics to ensure our guests can enjoy the holiday they have been looking forward to, striving to minimize the impact on their overall holiday experience, please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience occurred. Cordially, The Management
Not recommended this hotel and specialy this type of room . It is very small can't fit for couple plus bad view with very dirty building neighbor. Plus they mentioned of sounds profing which I think not right all outside loudy and noisy bars sounds will get inside. So plz not even think to book for any room at this hotel.
Dear Sultan, Although we sincerely regret your disappointment with your stay in our Occidental The Public, we would like to thank you for sharing your comments as it will help us to identify areas of concern and act immediately so as to enhance our future guests' experience among us. We have read your comments on the room we have accommodated you in and sincerely regret your disappointment on the size of your room and encourage you for a future holiday planning to visit Agoda website where you will find a thorough description of our hotels' rooms and facilities to make sure you book the one that best meets your holiday needs and wishes. We are taking note about your comment about noise and improving our facilities, to increase the comfort of our guests. Thank you again for making us your choice hotel on this occasion, we look forward to serving you again in the near future. Best regards, The Management
Very modern look, excellent location”
Location of the hotel is perfect, right on the famous Istiklal Street. Room was beautiful, a little small but that was not an issue. The shower was heavenly! Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.
Great place right in the middle of all action”
Do not even think about staying anywhere else if you like Istanbul Nightlife, Shopping, Restaurants, galeries, this is the place to be. Stylish rooms, small but very nice, only Thing is, if you come for Sightseeing in the old town than this might be to far away. Otherwise, go!
Wonderful small and cozy place, right in the middle of the Action, Shopping galeries. No good place for first time sightsee-friends because the old town is far away, but Hip Istanbul is right there. I just loved every bit of it. Small rooms but with everything one Needs plus more. Ask for a Junior Suite to have Little more space!
Very good ”
I had a wonderful stay there ,the room is perfect clean,I didn’t like the concrete finishing of the walls,the stuff is very good friendly good smiles all the time,the place is very near to everywhere,5minits to metro station close to center
Trendy cool and in the heart of the nightlife of istanbul”
Very nice rooms with a nice postmodern industrial style and very comfy bed. Just careful if you’re sensitive to sound, get a high floor room but otherwise excellent place and upgraded me to a junior suite for free :)
Best boutique hotel in Istanbul”
We stayed in around 4-5 different hotels. By far this place exceeded our expectations. As an Architect and Interior designer duo, we felt like every corner of this building was very well designed. Rooms were spacious and stunning. Art work and color schemes were at point. We were initial hesitant because of its location in downtown main Istiklal street. But it was sound proof all the way. Amazing high ceiling with Concrete finished walls. All the colors were in the sofas and wall arts. I rarely come back to the same hotel whenever i travel but for this, I am definitely going to make an exception. Highly Recommended!
Not satisfied , not 4 star hotel”
No 4 star hotel , big lie ,

Centrally located, hotel staffs are extremely friendly, room beds & pillows are comfortable, bathroom is big. Many thanks to the staffs for the great help & guidance. You guys are awesome.
Awful Staff ”
the reservation does not state if you are getting double or twin room, we needed a twin room, and the reception manager was very Rude, saying "Lady you get what you order, call booking where you orders" without trying to understand or try to help or sympathize even. I said I will write a bad recommendation about the hotel staff, he said: write what you want. the hotel is very nicely designed, but the staff is horrible and not friendly at all.
Dear Imad, Thank you very much for leaving your comments about your stay with us in Agoda. We would like to thank you on one hand for the nice comments about room design and on the other hand we would like to apologize for the issue with the reservation and staff friendliness, we will investigate further to find out what could have happened. Best regards, The Hotel Management.
The staff are willing to go extra miles for guests.”
I was robbed/cheated by the taxi driver upon arriving at the hotel. Since the taxi stopped out of the hotel cctv coverage, the hotel staff (Murat) helpful me to contact the police and get the cctv footage from nearby store. While waiting he make sure we are ok and calm down by offering us refreshment. The next day, with the clear footage of cctv, the hotel staff (bellboy, i am sorry i forgot your name) accompanied us to the police station and lodged a report. I am truly grateful with the assistance provided by the hotel staff.
Amazing hotel and dont think twice”
The staff are AMAZING, the manager of the hotel Baver is such a gentlmen and he is a real manager. The staff welcoming and smile never stoped, the rooms were big and clean with comfortable beds. Always ask for Baver and Borja YOU WILL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED. To barcelo group thanks for choosing a great staff. By the way i reserved this hotel for three nights and i end up staying with them for 12 nights. Thanks Baver.
Amazing experience and will go again difently”
Everything was excellent especially the location, staff, cleanliness.... I was delayed one day and called the hotel to tell them I will come a day after. They were very helpful and when I arrived Ayfer and Baver checked me in and then called Agoda and shifted my reservation one day! I recomond this hotel for sure and will be my option whenever I visit Istanbul.
