Set on a sleepy side street in the bustling, trendy Nişantaşı neighbourhood, the hotel is close – but not too close – to all the area’s shops, cafés, and bars, and a short walk (or even shorter metro ride) to the Taksim Square transit hub. I found the area a good compromise between proximity and peace and quiet.
To me, the 21 suites feel more like small apartments than hotel rooms, with warm-toned, attractive but not too trendy furniture and carpets, though it would be nice if the curtains that separated the sleeping and living areas weren’t so translucent. The small kitchens are open and well-equipped, with pull-out tables for eating.
A well-landscaped rooftop lounge is open to guests.
Eating and drinking
A good-quality breakfast buffet is included in the room rate, but there are no restaurant or bar facilities on-site.
A small, clean, guests-only fitness centre is equipped with a handful of different exercise machines, Jacuzzi tubs, and a sauna.
Staff members are friendly, helpful, and generally speak English well.
Who stays there
With in-room office equipment, free wired and WiFi access, and a meeting room, the hotel is a good pick for business travellers, while families will appreciate the extra space compared to a regular hotel.
