Amazing!
This hotel is amazing!!!! It was centrally located, the hotel management was fantastic and extremely nice, and very welcoming the room were VERY clean. I loved the rain shower, slippers, and free waters included. This hotel was worth the money and when ever I am back in Istanbul I will be staying here! Additionally, they have a great restaurant across the way. This hotel is a five star in my eyes and other hotels have so much to learn. Thank You for an awesome stay!

Comfortable stay at Stories Karakol
I enjoyed Stories Karakol - the rooms are really well equipped and well serviced. The location couldn't be more perfect. My one concern is that one of the desk attendants spoke very less English than how much Turkish I speak and made little effort to help me. The only other little concern was that our Superior King Room was still incredibly tight in terms of space. I can't imagine how small standard rooms are, then.

Good price, super location, superb bathroom + bed
Hotel is in the best location if you want to be in the heart of Taksim. Had an amazing stay here - the shower room is divine! Nice big walk in shower with wooden platter floor, and big dark stone walls. Was gorgeous! Super large bed, and less than 1 minute to the main high street from which you can go anywhere you want. Perfect! The only downside I guess is that because it is middle of a VERY BUSY area, you will hear some noise at night - this is normal for the area and is not just this hotel. This noise didnt bother me as I am from London, so am used to people shouting every now and then etc. For the price it is superb, the location is excellent, and the quality of room was awesome. Embrace the local atmosphere right in the centre of it all. Will definitely stay here again.

Excellent hotel in a nice area
This was the best hotel I have stayed in a long time. The room was clean, beautifully decorated and very quiet even though it was off from a busy road. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was really nice. The staff was friendly and the location was perfect. The main shopping street is really close and if you walk to the opposite direction there are so many cafes and restaurants and the neighbourhood is really lively. I would stay at this hotel again at anytime!

great staff
Good location if you want to be near late night eateries and shops. But far from historic sights if you are on a short stay. Great staff.
