    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Perfect place to stay ”
    The Public Hotel is right in the center of Istiklal street (10 seconds walk from the Hotel). The rooms are very nice and the bed is very comfortable. We booked the attic room with sea view which was very small with the bathroom sink in the bedroom next to the bed. Fortunately the airconditioning of our room was not working well so the staff shifted us to another room which was quite bigger and better. Would definitely stay again. Its a 15 - 20 minutes walk to Taksim Square on one side and around 20-25 minutes walk to Karakoy station on the other side (past the Galata Tower). From Taksim you can get bus/Taxi/ Metro to all the places you need to go

    My wife, son and I stayed at The Public Hotel during a 24 hour layover in Istanbul. Initially we were going to stay by the airport for convenience, but now we are glad we didn't. You cannot beat the location of this place, and it provided access to lots of fun sites, restaurants and shopping. It feels like the middle of all the action. Plus the hotel is very cool, with an industrial chic motif that is somehow warm at the same time. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. It was a great place for our mini adventure layover.
