Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.1

Modern all-suites accommodation in a fashionable district.

Each room in this converted textile workshop is named after a master painter and decorated with prints and books of their work. I appreciate how this adds an appealingly individual element to a smart, low-profile hotel catering to business travellers and other visitors on extended stays.

Location

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.

Bedrooms

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.

Public areas

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.

Leisure facilities

A small, clean, guests-only fitness centre is equipped with a handful of different exercise machines, Jacuzzi tubs, and a sauna.

Service

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.
