It was terrible. Now even you can not find it in the booking! Try to find another hotel. You can get more than here. For example point, nippon, midtown , even cristal or cartoon is better than lion. It isn't 4 star hotel at all. It is 2*. No more.

It's 5 min walking from the metro station. The Hotel is located in Taksim & near to Istiklal street. The rooms cleanliness are average, the AC is not working properly. The receptionist are not helpful & didn't speak English as they pretend. The breakfast has good variety and hot breads, but without fruits. Free WIFI all over the Hotel.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
