    Great hotel for foreign travelers”
    Customer Service, Location, and Value for the money.
    I was incredibly happy with my stay at Stories Hotel Karakol. I traveled to Turkey by myself without any Turkish language under my belt. For obvious reasons, I was nervous about aspects of the trip; however, it was very easy to find my transfer from the airport to the hotel even though I arrived past 10:30pm into Istanbul. Check-in was incredibly smooth and the room was comfortable and clean. The second night, I was up all night because of a street party. The location is fantastic because you are so close to Itsiklal Street; however, you are also close to the noise. I talked to the manager about it and he immediately switched my room to one that was in a quieter part of the hotel (and was a free upgrade). I couldn't have been happier in my new room. Very quiet and conducive to sleep after a long day of sight seeing. Another day, an employee let me borrow his metro card since I was having trouble getting mine to work. He also took the time to explain what to do. Another day, a different employee helped me locate a pharmacy in order to get a medicine I needed. He called them to let them know I was coming and what I needed. He even drew me a map so that it would be easy to get to. Their customer service goes above and beyond in my opinion. Another day, a DIFFERENT employee helped me by talking through different options for transport to the airport before arranging a taxi and wake-up call for me. As a single female traveler, I felt I could rely on the staff to help me navigate the city safely and effectively. When I return to Istanbul, I will definitely stay here again.

    Clean but little bit noisy & not the best mattress”
    Location, moderate price, design & genreal look
    This hotel was generally clean but its located in front of a bar which makes it quite noisy at night, event for the rooms on the top floors. Inside th hotel itself, there seem to be not insonorisation whatsoever so in the morning you can hear the cleaning staff. There is a gas fire place but it cost 20 lira / 10 dollars to have a container of gas which will last for a few hours. Without this, the room temperature can be quite cold. Staff English is quite poor which makes it difficult to get advices and tips on attractions and restaurant.

    Friendly staff, clean room, great location
    We had a wonderful stay! The hotel is in a great location, right off the main street of istiklal. The decor was modern. The room was comfortable and quiet. It is in the perfect location for nightlife and dining. We got the Authentic feel we were looking for.

    clean and nice designed hotel”
    location was good, very clean and modern, staff were helpful
    we really enjoyed our stay. rooms were very clean and modern. check in was easy. the room was a little small, but it didn't matter as everything was designed well and we got everything. was super clean, like brand new, think it must of recently we renovated. i high recommend this hotel. get a map and its easy to walk to the tram and see the sights. taxis cant drop you right in front of the hotel as the street is narrow, but its just a small walk though and they all speak english to help with directions.

    Superbly designed boutique hotel ”
    Great design, modern elevator, convenient location
    My stay here was excellent. The only small negative was the size of the standard room. As I was alone, it was not bad but it might be crowded for two. The bathroom however, was large and excellent.
