1. Centrally located 2. Helpful staff 3. Close to airport connections
The staff were very helpful. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated. The hotel was close to all that we wanted to see and experience.
Great location, will definetely stay there again”
Safety, Service, Location
As a solo (female) traveller, I feel very safe around the area. The hotel staff is perhaps the best thing about Lush Taksim as they are very attentive and very friendly. Good command of english, which is important when it's your 1st time in Istanbul and you need to know about where to go for eat, transport, attractions, etc.
Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and stay again myself.
Great location, amazing staff”

Great location, but noisy”
Great location, clean.
the lush hotel in taksim is perfectly situated, very close to taksim square and all the clubs and bars there. cihangir is also very close.
room was nice, clean and very small, but very noisy, also people/cars outside. this is a disadvantage of a great location.
breakfast was basic, but good.
wlan was for free, but unreliable. even with complaints at the reception it didn't work for the last two days of my stay.
Room is too small n very dark, good location”
No view, outside window is backwall of neighbor which is not pleasant
Breakfast is good, staff made mistake on extra charge of one more breakfast , n offer us very high price of local travel plans. Bell man is very nice,
Good boutique hotel in great location”
Good location, good room, good food.
Let me first say that I found hotels in Istanbul to be WAY overpriced, in general. So I won't dock this particular place on that, since they are competitively priced.
The location is great, perfect for wandering the Taksim area of Istanbul, which is full of people at night. There's so many little cafes and restaurants and clubs, this is a very fun place.
The brochure says that each room has a different theme, so my photos probably won't be indicative of the other rooms. Mine was big, comfy, and the shower set-up was larger than most. Only downside is the bed was hard as a rock.
good location but small rooms and greedy staff”
We had booked a twin bed room, instead we where given a bunk bed room which could accommodate 3. The room was really tiny and there where no locks in the bathrooms. At the time of check out the lobby manager was greedy and wanted to charge us for the extra bed which we didn't ask for and the complimentary water bottles. And during the stay we saw many hotel guests angry and upset. I would never go back to this hotel.
Excellent location and comfortable room”
The bed and the breakfast garden
We stayed one night at Lush hotel. The hotel is in one of the busiest street but room is comfortable. The ammenity kits and bathroom products are good. They gave us a room that we needed to pass infront of the reception table therefore sometimes we heard the phone rings and their conversations. The garden is absolutely cute however the breakfast is just adequate not wow. And the bed is huge. Walking distance to Taksim square and Istiklal street.
how lovely hotel”
excellent location and convenient
Its was my first time to visit Istanbul.The hotel is just located perfect and convenient and good for those travelers who want to explore the city.The staffs who work in the hotel were sincerely to guests.
Great hotel ideally located with great service ”
Great rooms, very nice service and excellent location
I had a great time at Lush hotel and would definitely recommend the hotel for people who would like to be in a central and fashionnable district.
Rooms are well decorated and spacious.
Hotel as some nice facilities such as fitness room (even if a bit small), spa with good massages.
Breakfast is great.
Service is good as well
design, quality of rooms, location
nothing to say, all is in the title. great value for money, design of room is just great, internet working perfectly
Central location, small rooms”
adjunct to the taksim square, therefor very central and easy to reach. the "reception" looks like a borring office with very borred people in it, almost sleepy. that might be at times nice and as if it were in a movie. but it´s a central location hotel, wich has to offer the minimum functions of a hotel. rooms are small, clean and well done. wifi works. the pretention of "design" is lovely and ok but just a step too much: sophisticated decoration and arrangements of rooms, indeed small rooms, require a sense for constellations and accessoires, which seems to be absent here. standard service without design is always better than less service + "design". nobody needs "design" for its own sake, people need good service, easy going co-worker and help. that is it.
perfect location helpul staff great breakie
Small but confty rooms...good wireless for free...GREAT breakfast included in the room rate...staff was quite helpful and attentive. Location was right off Taksim and was perfect for nightlife and easy access to tram/subway system. Noise at night yes, but if you are looking for nightime quiet then don't book a hotel right in the middle of all the nightime action! Massage at Spa was great.
Comfortable Hotel in good location ”
Location, spacious feeling rooms (very high ceilings), good bathroom facilities, good buffet breakfast, free wifi
We had a good stay. The hotel was very well located; close to Taksim Square (but not too close); where there is one of the main subway stations, and the airport bus stop. The staff were very friendly. The room we had wasn't actually that large but certainly large enough,however the high ceilings gave it a very spacious feeling. I'm tall so we went for a deluxe room and the bed was a good size and very comfortable. Breakfast was good and varied, although they weirdly play club sounds. The hotel is situated quite close to the trendy bar and club area and on the Saturday night it was quite noisy in the streets which could be heard but otherwise OK. The reception area is oddly designed and doesn't really work in my opinion but this won't affect your stay at all.
Very small noisy rooms”
Great breakfast, close to Taksim square and shopping strip.
Pictures of standard room very deceiving. Rooms are that tiny that you have to almost stand on your bags to get into bed! Rooms are more suited to single person not double.
Good location for shopping as close to Taksim square and the boutique shopping strip. The hotel is in the new district and over the bridge. You can access the old district by catching the Fonicular railway from Taksim square and then the metro tram (3 stops}.
Breakfast at the hotel is fantastic and the staff are helpful.
room needs some fresh paint
Excellent location near Taksim Square. The hotel wasn't very lively, hardly saw any other guests. I liked the room design and the superior room was spacious. Especially the bath room was worn out and in need of some fresh paint. Wireless Internet access in room included.
Haven't had breakfast and can't provide any information on that.
