“Best place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

Me and my partner we stayed here at beginning of december. The hotel is perfectly located, far enough and close enough to every attraction. It is clean and modern. Rooms are nice and reasonably priced. Staff is helpful and friendly. Next time i will be in istanbul i will definitely stay here again and i recommend this hotel strongly to everyone.
It was definitely more than we expected.

We planned to stay with my wife for 20 days (from 10 to 30 Nov 2011) at istanbul, and residence of our choice through internet searching was Harbiye Residence. Ooh! this residence is perfect 20 days passed like one day. The residence is so clean and nice located at very center of every thing-very near Taskim square where you can get transport to all nice(tourist) places in istanbul. The workers are so nice, charming and friendly to customers they are always there when you need them. They will even spent sometime with you telling you the nice places which you must visit if you ask them. HR's workers please keep this altitude i am sure you will get more customers than you can afford, Mr. Rama , Emre( aka JJ) and your fellows you are great keep it up. Having seen our 20 days passed like one day we add extra 5 days and hence instead of leaving 30th nov 2011 we left on 05 Dec 2011 and still we are missing the place, Hope to visit Istanbul again and stay at HR. I forget to mention about the breakfast- they have a very nice and delicious breakfast(buffet).
We would recommend to any tourist who visit istanbul to have a stay at this residence ,He/She will never regret. Give it a try.
For HR "customer satisfication comes first and money later", We wish HR all the best and tell them they are above all and they should keep on pressing the padel. You are Excellent and not Very Good.

This hotel, recently appointed to a very high standard, truly is a rose between thorns. Booked on the basis of reviews from this very site, we were expecting it to be adequate at worst, but we were not expecting it to exceed our expectations by as much as it did!

A ten to fifteen minute stroll (albeit uphill!) from Taksim Square, the Harbiye Residence is exceptionally clean, very comfortable and, most importantly, nice and QUIET (apart from the early prayer calls from the nearby minaret). Breakfast provided consisted of a good assortment of cheeses, cured meats, salad, fruit, nuts, cereal, choice of bread (brown/white/toasted/simit/croissant . . ), plenty of fruit juice, tea, coffee, milk, eggs and all the condiments you could wish for.

The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating, always greeting us with a smile and happy to assist with any queries we had.

Just over the main road is a very handy Dolmuş halt too, with regular services to Örtakoy, Nişantaşi, Beşiktaş etc.

All-in-all an absolutely superb experience and we will be booking again!

I spent four nights at HR last week. I'm not sure there is much I can add to other reviews. This is a modern hotel; rooms are spacious and fitted with refrigerator and some cooking facilities; everything is very clean; a good "continental" breakfast spread is available each morning, with simple cooked dishes such as omelette also available.

It is not possible to praise the staff too highly. Everyone is very warm and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. They are outstanding.

The hotel is not located in one of the hotspots for tourist accommodation (that is, Taksim or Sultanahmet) so there are not dozens of restaurants on the same block. However there are a few in the area, and plenty of small grocery shops that are open all hours.

The location is about fifty metres down a small steep side street off a main thoroughfare - Cumhuriyet Caddesi - between Taksim and Nisantasi, near the military museum and Macka Parki, and convenient for the Istanbul Conference Centre. It's a short walk to Nisantasi, a fashionable shopping and restaurant district mostly patronised by Istanbul residents, or to the transport and tourist hub of Taksim. Touristic visitors should be aware that the HR is some distance from the main tourist sites of the Topkapi peninsula (Ayasofya, blue mosque, bazaars) - although not much further than hotels in Taksim - and should expect either to spend some time walking or on public transport, or to take the occasional inexpensive taxi ride. If you have business in the area, it's an excellent location.

The one small reservation I had was that the bed was rather soft, and having a bad back, I didn't sleep as well as I do on a harder mattress.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a pleasant view over the Dolapdere district.

we stayed at HR for five days in 24 to 28 October 2011. it is centrally placed, convenient, comfortable, neat n clean, hotel with caring staff. Furniture is cozy, kitchen is up to date including refrigerator, microwave, cooking utensils especially useful for Indians who preferred to cook their own food or to heat ready to cook preparations.
Safe for family
we wish all the best and expect the same hospitality continues ever.
