Amy Adejokun Section editor


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.

    Location 6.39 /10

    Located in the centre of Istanbul, in the dynamic business district around Taksim Square, this hotel is easily accessible and fairly well signposted.
    A multitude of streets lead away from the square, which holds a large number of shops and is where concerts are often held in the evenings.
    Taksim, known as the neighbourhood that never sleeps, is not a dangerous place, however, it is advisable for women to keep to the busier streets if they are returning to the hotel alone late at night.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has 156 guest rooms of which two are reserved for guests with reduced mobility.
    All characterised by a decent style, none of them have any unique decorative features, although they are spacious and furnished with light-coloured furniture.
    In addition, they are bright and equipped with all of the modern amentities: adjustable air-conditioning, a minibar, a private safe, and a flat-screen television with all the major national and international channels.
    The bathroom includes a shower and welcome toiletries.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The furnishings and decor are not brand new but everything is well maintained. Following a detailed visit of the hotel, the Taksim Gonem seems to be a small (in relation to the size of the individual rooms) but well organised establishment.
    Although it is on the small side, the gym is well equipped (with 3 treadmills and many different weights and weight machines) and next to it you will find the Turkish baths, carefully decorated and offering a pleasant place for daily relaxation. Two rooms have been equipped for massages and there is also a sauna with wooden benches. Guests have a choice of 3 swimming pools (including one on the roof, next to the restaurant), and a Jacuzzi for relaxation.
    The hotel also has a conference room that can be used for ceremonies and weddings. Finally, the lounge can accommodate between 50 and 100 people and features an elegant wooden floor and removable partitions that are very practical for maximising the available space.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Located on the top floor, the well designed restaurant boasts parquet flooring and is divided into two different areas, including a terrace that can accommodate 50 or so people in the summer months. Usually only open for dinner, brunch can be served on request. The inside of the restaurant is much more spacious, with a capacity of up to 300 guests.
    However, the complete absence of windows does not make it a very enjoyable place. Frankly, we found this room a little oppressive with its busy wallpaper, fake chandeliers, and over-the-top studded leather chairs. The buffet is laid out in one corner of the room in front of the kitchen,
    and the à la carte menu offers local and international dishes.

    The bar is located on the ground floor and serves a variety of original hot and cold dishes for lunch.
    Popular with locals, it has become a place for business people to meet and have a quick bite to eat.

    To know

    The Taksim is an unassuming hotel that meets the needs of its local and business guests. It has the advantage of being easily accessible and offers reasonable prices for Istanbul.
    The hotel, which first opened in 2004 and was renovated 4 years later, has areas that have been well equipped.

      • Location 6.2

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    • Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water Sumahan On The Water
      • Easyopinions -
      • 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.
