                -The room was so comfortable. I liked its blue colors. -The hotel is small and quiet. -It is at a very good location, close to the Hilton, Hayat, and the intercontenetal. So if you are attending an event at one of these big hotels, you can stay at Taksim Express for a very good price. -It is also close to the hustle and bustle of Taksim square, but in a very quiet street. -Very close to a very nice park.

                -The staff who clean the room forgot couple of times during the week to put new towels. -There is no iron/ironing table in the room. For business travelers or those who are attending an event, it is the most optimal situation.

                Only the location near the shopping area, though nobody from taxi people knows this hotel even if you come back again to hotel then you will miss it if you do not really look very well for the sign board which is not clearly shown

                Nobody knows this hotel , we spent 60 tl from airport for taxi but he kept looking for the hotel, we called them by the phone provided from Booked.net but they did not answer , the sign board for the hotel is not shown and you can not see this hotel , the taxi driver even asked the people from hilton hotel which is opposite to this hotel but nobody knows this hotel, this hotel staff were very incooperative , and are very rude to us ,the electricity outlet in turkey is only 2 rounded pins ,we asked for electricty 3 pin triangular connection as in the gulf area for the I pad ,the answer was to us , we do not have and this is extra for the room (though our room was deluxe room) , they even did not tell us that there is shop next to them sells these plugs ,till the last day and by chance we found that shop and bought the plug for the I pad ,the staff and the cleaning people are very rude ,the room cleaning was also not ok and they do not replace anything that is used in the room ,they did not replace finished tissue ,nor the used tea and sugar even the cups were dirty because it was not washed well , I will never go back to this hotel again

                The hotel is ideally situated for the Istanbul Congress Centre (less than a block away). Staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are modern and immaculately clean. Breakfast was good and diverse: I only missed other juice-types as they only had orange.

                At the time of writing (June 2012) there were some building works nearby that seemed to take place late at night. However, for traffic noise etc. it was good as there was double glazing and the hotel was, in general, fairly quiet.
