Expert review of Lush Hotel

Hip hotel in central location with no two rooms the same.

Staying in one of the 35 unique rooms at this renovated century-old apartment building is like having your own stylish pied-à-terre in the heart of the city. I like how the hip vibe extends to the basement bar DaDa, where flat-screen TVs are hung inside faux-vintage picture frames and locals and guests alike sip cocktails around the bar or at a roughly finished wooden-slab table.

Location: 

On a busy and not particularly appealing thoroughfare, but extremely centrally located for shopping, dining, and drinking in Beyoğlu, Istanbul’s lively “new city,” where I generally recommend visitors stay.

Bedrooms: 

From a minimalist room with an exposed-brick accent wall and a small shower to an Ottoman-styled suite (complete with its own Turkish bath) fit for a pasha, no two rooms are alike, but nearly all have their own quirky decorative touches. Some rooms have views over Taksim Square, while those in the back look over the garden and tend to be quieter.

Public areas: 

Not much of a lobby to speak of, but the downstairs bar/restaurant/garden is a good gathering place.

Eating and drinking: 

Downstairs DaDa bills itself as a “sports and art café-bar.” The eclectically decked-out space serves up cocktails and both Turkish and international dishes, which can also be enjoyed in the new backyard garden.

Leisure facilities: 

Various treatments are offered at the hotel’s spa. There’s also a small fitness room and a sauna.

Service: 

Service is friendly and casual.

Who stays there: 

Foreign businesspeople, couples and singles.

Price advice: 

Since each room is different, size and style varies even within a single price category (eg deluxe, superior, elegance) so ask to have a look at a couple before making up your mind. I found some of the cheapest rooms to be very small and basic.

Pros: 
Stylish and full of character
Good facilities
Cons: 
On a busy street
Some rooms are small and basic
