Amy Adejokun Section editor

The style of the Nippon is elegant and designer, its common areas and guest rooms decorated with simplicity and character.
The hotel opened some ten years ago, but it has kept a youthful and energetic atmosphere, taking advantage of its small size and its location to attract a mixed clientele: a perfect establishment for holidaymakers but also well equipped to cater for those travelling to the area on business, the Nippon is the ideal establishment for a stay in the capital.

    Location 6.2 /10

    No.6, Topšu Caddesi: the Nippon hotel is at the very heart of the Taksim neighbourhood, where you'll find the majority of Istanbul's hotels.
    Highly frequented by businessmen and women, the area is the centre of constant hustle and bustle: by night and by day, in the numerous nightclubs and restaurants (especially in the main street behind Taksim square) there is always some live music going on.
    The hotel is protected from this animation thanks to its location at the other end of the square, at the crossroads to several pedestrian streets filled with hotels and grocery stores. You therefore won't have to worry about the noise, or about having your sleep disturbed. The neighbourhood is safe.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The Nippon's 171 guest rooms offer a mixture of elegance and practicality.
    They're rather small and are decorated with simple materials (wood and dark tiling), giving the rooms little touches of style.
    The hotel offers the choice between standard rooms and suites. Both include cable Internet connection (Wi-Fi is also available), a plasma-screen TV broadcasting international channels, a mini-bar (two courtesy bottles of water are provided for guests upon their arrival), a safe and an adjustable air-conditioning system.
    The decor reflects the effort to please the hotel's business clientele, mixing efficiency and comfort.
    However, there are no rooms equipped to cater for disabled guests, although management claims that such a room can be easily arranged if necessary. Some of the bathrooms are fitted with a shower that includes an emergency button for elderly guests.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The hotel occupies a modern corner building. The hotel building itself, with its linear spaces and 'rational' design, is in keeping with its overall image: this becomes apparent upon entering the hotel, where the layout of the sofas and the reception area, and the detail of the materials create a very nice atmosphere indeed. The building is an 8-storey construction, the two top floors of which are reserved for smokers.
    The Nippon was renovated in 2007, and celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.
    The clientele is mainly made up of Europeans (many Italians, Germans, Greeks and Belgians), but there has been an increase of Middle-Eastern businessmen and women who choose the hotel for its conference rooms. A cocktail area has been created for business drinks, compensating for the fact that there is no bar.
    The establishment provides Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and there is also an Internet corner for guests who haven't brought along their computer.
    Finally, the hotel also has a well-being centre which offers various massage treatments.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Near the entrance to the restaurant, there is a selection of newspapers provided for guests (unfortunately all in Turkish). The spacious restaurant room itself has a capacity of 200 diners and serves international and traditional cuisine in a colourful setting boasting amusing paintings.
    A copious buffet breakfast is served here (including cereal and pastries), as well as the other two meals of the day, which are served Ó la carte.
    The attentive staff and the excellent Turkish coffee provide guests with a great start to the day.

    To know

    Taksim is one of the most lively and charming neighbourhoods of the capital. Home to many business headquarters, this is also the heart of Istanbul's night life.
    The area is also relatively safe: there are constant comings and goings here, and the numerous establishments provide an excellent remedy to any night-time hassles.
    The area affords very good access to public transport (bus service and northbound metro line).

      • Location 6.1

      Efficiency and style are undeniable features of the Midtown Hotel.
      Located in the heart of the Taksim district, this hotel, which caters to a large business clientele, appears to easily meet the various requirements of its guests.
      This hotel is a pleasant place to stay for several reasons, one of which is the welcome afforded to its guests.
      If you have the opportunity (and luck), ask for the Corner Suite: this is definitely the best room in the hotel.

      • Location 6.1

      This is a discreet little place at the very heart of Taksim, the city's business district.
      With its fine restaurant and pleasant staff, the Feronya primarily attracts business travellers, though it is also a good place for a perfectly pleasant getaway.
      Nevertheless, a good bit of renovations wouldn't go amiss, particularly where the rather gloomy communal areas are concerned.

      • Location 6.39


      Located close to the Marmara, this hotel has a young and dynamic style that is rather convincing: take, for example, the restaurant that caters to business travellers and employees who work in the surrounding offices daily, as well as the clean, private, and welcoming spa.
      The strong point of this hotel is undoubtedly its proximity to Taksim Square, the business centre of Istanbul and a hub for nightlife.
      The Taksim is a discreet place to a stay, either alone or with your family.

      Strange mixture! The Divan offers modernism and the services of a large hotel in a slightly 70's atmosphere. A functional, comfortable address a few minutes' walk from Taksim Square.

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
