                The hotel management should definetely do something about that strange smell fullfilling the whole lobby (entrance, reception, elevator). They should also work on the very poor appearance of the lobby which does not at all match the comfy cute rooms.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Very nice and trendy location, central but still not too touristic neighbourhood. Roof terrace with great view.

                Not really.

              • Group of friends
                4.6

                The location was central. Fantastic views from the rooftop restaurant.

                Bathroom was very smelly, the soil pipe was probably broken. The hotel advertised a rooftop bar and restaurant. The bar did not exist! The hotel was next to a bar which stayed open until 4.00am with loud music playing all night.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                a small hotel in a very lively location - both good for sighseeing and shopping with a excellent restaurant on the 6th floor - which does not belong to the hotel - and with many small restaurants and cafés all over the area

                one of the two rooms (single room) was very small - the bathroom could only be used by a very slim person. The breakfast was very poor - 6 days exactly the same choice.

              • Couple
                5.4

                The staff was friendly, but not in the possition to solve the appeared problems and to react adequately when requested.

                Our room was on the first floor, just above a super noicy disco club, the sound and the vibrations were being heard every night till early in the morning, as well as the conversations of the people downstairs. Was not possible to open the windows and to sleep at all. It's not recommended when one needs relax. Also the reservation was for a double bed, instead of this we were accommodated in a room with separate beds, which was not correct.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                Vey friendly staff (especially young guys at breakfast :)), perfect location for people who would like to see not only Sultanahmet, but other places in european part. Highly recommended for fans of Orhan Pamuk :)

                There were not enough shelves in the bathroom.

                One of the best location in town, with the small Firuzaga mosque nearby for the romantic ezan calling, alternative culture people, the sounds of the Bosphorus entrance. I felt home immediatly.

                Like everybody else: the really bad smell in the stairs and in the bathroom. And the fake orange juice at the standard turkish breakfast table. The coffee was good although.

                The helpful and friendly staff who were always cheerful early morning or late at night. The wonderful views of the city from the rooftop breakfast room.

                Pretty nice hotel in the beautiful hood of Beyoglu (Pera). The hotel is solid and clean, the price is pretty fair.

                The location in Cihangir, was both quiet and lively. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was of an old world elegance. Excellent price for vacation dollar. View of Hağia Sofia and Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus was amazing. Meyra Cafe became a second home.

                Bed was a bit uncomfortable, but not terribly so.

                Location is the best issue, quite near Taksim square which was very convenient. The cafe of the hotel is also very nice.

                We had single rooms with my colleague. While my room was very dark (a really small window with lack of light inside the room), the room of my colleague smelt.

                Villa Zürich is located in the heart of Cihangir, an excellent location. It is kind of in the "Soho" of Istanbul.Breakfast saloon has one of the best views of the city overlooking to the historic peninsula whilst seagulls are usual visitor asking for food.

                I stayed in these hotel many times, so I feel quiet comfortable to criticize it as well..Rooms are very noisy at night due to the vibrant street it is located. A better soundproofing would for sure enhance the experience. Breakfast choice is quite dull for foreigners, though perfectly suiting Turkish taste. Worst of all, some beds (especially double beds) are unfortunately terrible. You feel as though you are fakir sleeping a wood surface without the nails. Villa Zürich is a bohemian & backpacker experience. Do not expect more.

                Location is very close to Beyoglu, Taksim.

                There is strange smell in the hotel as well as in the room. It gave me discomfort cause I had to work in my room all day. Even during the night, it may cause sleepness night. I wouldn't recommend if your stay is more than a day. Another issue was I booked to hotel in Euros from the Booked.net. The hotel applied a strange Euro to Turkish Lira exchange rate and asked me to pay in Turkish Liras. Approximately, 6 Euros more I had to pay.

                The only positive point is the location

                Room was very far from description of "Superior single room"; window was maybe 20cm max. So totally dark ,next to staff stairs and air-co system engine, so very noisy.Shower could be reached by stepping over the toilet. Staff was not very nice. Very bad value for the price paid, I have seen much better in Istanbul. Breakfast view is nice though, food is poor and the eating area is not very clean.
