The staff are friendly, perfect location to reach taksim square around 5 min walk and the price is awesome! I went there with friends...a bit hard to reach it for the first time but we managed quickly to memorise the road and the hotel entrance.

Stayed with a friend for 9 days during spring break. We have changed the hotel originally booked at the last minute to Hotel Taksim Star and we didn't regret it. I had stayed before at two 4 star hotels in Taksim ( Feronya and Grand Oztanik) Taksim Star was far less cheaper and better though it is rated as 3...

This is one of the best options around Taksim if you are on a budget. The rooms are definitely small but they are quite comfortable. The location is excellent. The hotel is along a pleasant back street leading off from the square. The breakfast is ok but you might prefer to go out as there are much better Turkish breakfasts...

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.
