            The location is excellent, very central, u can see the hotel from taksim square but although tarlabasi str. is very noisy the room had a very good sound isolation so u can sleep without any problem. We got the room for a very good price according to the facilities provided. The room was very clean, everything new, modern decorated, big bathroom, strong hairdryer, rich breakfast (i was surpised that u could eat honey from a honeycomb!)

            Dont let the long and narrow corridors leading to the rooms scare u, u will be pleased once u are in the room. The name of the hotel is Cartoon and they had the idea to dedicate every room to some cartoon character (for example my room had a big portrait of mini mouse over the bed!) which i find a little kitsch, but this isnt important and not really a reason for u not to stay at the hotel. I will choose this hotel again next time i visit istanbul (this was my 5th time already)

            The size of the superior rooms.

            The evening staff at the reception was not helpful at all and rude. At our (we were two girlfriends) request for a taxi in front of the hotel during the second night of our stay, due to construction works at the Taksim square, they just replied that we had to go the corner of the street and take a taxi. We did that, but the taxi driver overcharged us - we paid 30 liras - instead of the normal 11-22. The following morning we noticed that taxis were stopping in front of the hotel to pick up customers leaving for the airport. Due to construction works at Taksim square (that are going to take place for a long time) this hotel is not convenient. There is a permanent traffic congestion, actually a chaos, taxis cannot drop you off at the hotel when coming from the airport, access by taxis to other major hotels near Cartoon, i.e. Intercontinental hotel, is impossible. If we knew in advance, we would have never made reservations at the hotel. You should place a note in your website regarding the incovenience that these construction works cause to travellers that stay at and/or near the Taksim square.

            It's very close to the Taksim Square and Istiklan Street.

            It's an old-fashioned and small hotel.

            Clean ,comfortable and an excellent location for shoppers in istanbul. Value for money.

            One unfortunate thing happens during breakfast. My friend who is sitting infront of me for breakfast got his pant dirty when one of the waitress over carried the used plates and cups . The cups drop and spills coffee on his pants. No apology nor any attempt to help him clean his pants. He just walk away.

            the location was amazing right next to taksim square just 50-100 mts and you can take funicular to kabatas for bhosporous tours and the Dolmabache palace. or take a tram to the the old city.

            Vegetarians have limited choice... and you need to tel the chef or the manager for refills.. its strange once the milk gets over they dont refill . They need to offer somethings more for vegetarian guests in hot meals.
