                Location was good

                At the time that I booked tge hotel through Booked.net,it was clearlly menhtioned that children up to six yars can stay freeand above 9 can saty with paing 20 Euro extra per night .But when I calledthe hotel I was informed that cheildren can not stay in this room and u need to book a bigger one therefore pay more money for that which wasn't mentioned on your site and hotel did not take the ownership of that ,which I was not happy about it .

                Please stay away from this low class hotel. I had very bad experiance in this hotel and no body could help me from Booked.net or the hotel manager how sold my reservation to another family and transferred me and my family to un accepted hotel. The whole hotel is like a tunnel 8 meeter by 16 meeter and located in down hill street and does not have any meaning of facilities.

                We were a family that loved it's staying in panorama suite, the hotel is in the center of Taxim and the staff was very helpful and so kind..

                it was just the breakfast bufet, it needs to be improved.

                Stay for days, daily breakfasts are rich and delicious, the ingredients are fresh. Proximity to Taksim Square, the traffic is very convenient. There are a few Suit and Junior Suit rooms. That is suit for family and friends on their own for those who cook together, near the supermarket can dine economy. Hotel is not large, but exquisite decoration and textured design, security and modern management, and the equipments are complete. Suit and Junior Suite two kinds of room with a jacuzzi, double basin design, that is convienient for family people use at the same time. Other standard rooms are same size in sleeping area, but with a smaller bath area, confortable too. Although the restaurant is in the basement, due to the well-ventilated sunny garden, and outdoor tables, with LCD TV, it is a dining and comfortable environment, if nobody smoking. There has a basement toilet and washbasin, open to the housing to use.It make people feel friendly and convenient. Luggage storage space is not for specific design, but the security is no problem. The manage details seemed has no SOP. Otherwise the hotel is about to change the name and mode of operation. Now is the family business, after the change should be better.

                Good breakfast , close to istaqlal str, and other transportation services. When you arrive to the international airport take either subway or hawas bus to save allot of mony remember me when you do that.

                Small rooms ande make sure not in the ground floor . The hotel stuff do not comply to your complains regarding other guests noise.

                The location was actually in the margins of the the hotel district of Taksim and the conference valley (about 20 minutes walk), and a close walking distance to Taksim Square, the Metro, and Istikal Ave (if you like active evening scene of after dinner drinks, coffee and chatting). I was billeted in a suite with 2 single beds. The room was not spacious but adequate. The beds are narrower than usual, but that was fine with me. The bed was very comfortable. I liked the bathroom best - clean, nicely furnished with modern fixtures and spacious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate; I liked the fresh bread.

                The downside was the television programming which consisted mostly of Turkish programs, with only 2 English channels (one was Al Jazeera English news). The lobby was very small and not a place to relax. The walls were not sound proofed and one could hear noise within adjoining rooms, if the tenants were loud. The immediate surround could be disappointing with heavy traffic and unsightly sidewalk of neighboring structures (if compared to the hotels nearby). The hotel can improve its frontage appearance.

                I like a lot the location of the hotel, its brand new furniture and its cleanness.The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

                The rooms were very small, especially if you travel with children, and the breakfast room was located in the basement with a bad quality selection of foods.
