It was the smallest hotel room I have stayed. I did not measured but I would say the total use area of the hotel was around 10 m2. The double bed they had mentioned was 120 cm. So forget it if you are two people. The hotel is located next to a kebab house. At midnight if you have an...

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. Perfect location (only 5 minutes away from Taksim Square and Istiklal street) the breakfast is good but no variety. Rooms are small (as well as the beds). Very clean and recently renovated. Pleasant staff, not everyone knows English but they'll do their best to help you. This hotel is recommended if you're planning...

Riva Hotel provides everything you would need on a trip to Istanbul. It is conveniently located in Taksim, on a safe street as opposed to other narrow alleyways which can often turn out to be dodgy! Mind the roadworks on the way to the Taksim square though... The room was always cleaned to an excellent standard and the breakfast was...

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.
