Occidental The Public, Istanbul
Loved the decor, design, staff and awesome location of this Hotel! i enjoyed my stay tremendously and would happily stay here again - Breakfast could of been more exciting and there could of been more lighting in room and a more private shower if you sharing only, but otherwise a pure delight!,

Great location, Not as good as last time.
I stayed at this hotel about a year and a half ago with friends when it was under previous ownership. I have since stayed at other hotels in Istanbul but we wanted to stay here again given the good location for nightlife. However, this was not the same experience as before. Our room was not very clean when we checked in and when we put the door tag out our first full day there to have the room cleaned, the only thing done was to remove 2 empty bottles from the room (the bed wasn't made, the bathroom wasn't cleaned, etc.). The following day the room was finally cleaned but the trash was never taken out. The friends we were traveling with had a broken air conditioner and though they repeatedly asked to have it repaired, it never was. Everyone we encountered who worked there was very friendly and helpful and that is what made the experience better. The design of the hotel is still very nice but the rooms need to be better maintained.

Our staying in Occidental the Public was amazing. i'm defiantly coming back again.. the only thing that was a bit not so good is the variety of the breakfast items.. i hope you can improve that.

A great place to be!
The entire staff was very hospitable. Whenever we return back to the hotel, we were greeted with a welcome back & a smile. The location of the hotel was great for folks with loves activities either shopping or dinning and partying.

cool place in the middle of things
Great hotel when we finally got a room that was not too small. The staff were incredibly helpful and totally professional. The noise in the neighborhood was off the charts and made sleeping quite difficult. Great place if you like to shop and you don't mind music until 4am when the bars have to close.
