The hotel Spa was good. The Turkish Bath was plesant and professionel, and the staff there was superb.

We stayed in this hotel on 28th April 2012 for 3 nights. We were in room 723 which gave us a view of the city, although not the best of views, but hey we were here to sightsee. The hotel is very clean and modern and the staff were polite and helpful. The room was as good as any hotel I have stayed in and on check in a chap bought us up a complementary plate of fruit which was unexpected. At night we came back to small boxes of mixed nuts on each pillow, a nice alternative to chocolates! The Taksim area is just a short stroll to the Tram into old Istanbul and has some excellent restaurants nearby in walking distance. On two nights we started our evening off with a quick drink in the rooftop restaurant which had a great view over the Bospherous. Overall I would recommend this hotel for modernity (I have stayed in the Conrad Istanbul before and found it to be tired) comfort (bed was lovely!) and courtesy (Staff were lovely).

I stayed in this hotel for five nights. The location is excellent, near Taksim square with busy nightlife and not far from the Old Town by metro/tram. The room was well-equipped with coffee making facilities, bathrobe and option to select a pillow of choice. Daily newspaper was provided and the internet (wi-fi) worked well. An iron/board might make a nice addition. The room air conditioning was set to too hot and we had no way of changing it, after opening a window it was a bit noisy but in the 7th floor it was OK. Breakfast is served in a lovely top floor restaurant with a terrace and great view and selection is excellent, with lovely Turkish cheese and a healthy options table as well. The spa was a bit disappointing - does not offer much intimacy when you use the sauna or steam bath and there was only one shower in operation. To use the swimming pool you need a cap, a big minus - they sell it at a high price.

Reviewed 18 April 2012

I stayed in the Point hotel at the end of March for business for the first time and I have to say that I was expecting a better accommodation. Nothing to complain with the service, particularly on checking in and checking out. What really disappointed me was my room; maybe I have just been unlucky. I got a room on the first floor with just a small window that was pretty useless and I had to keep the lights on all the time. Furthermore the room was quite small, L shaped, and quite uncomfortable. The bathroom has seen better times and needed some maintenance. All was working, but looked old and a bit worn out. The amenities were quite poor compared to other, cheaper, hotels in Taksim. Finally I found the room very noisy and I had a very bad night due to the noise coming from the corridor.
Overall I found the room quite below the standards I was expecting. I didn't have the opportunity to use the other hotels facilities, so I cannot comment. However I have stayed in better hotels in Taksim at lower rates.
