    Close location to downtown istanbul

    A) Rooms are not well appointed. They are too dark and cramped and lack basic amenities like a bottle of complimentary drinking water B) There is no porter service to carry luggage to the room C) For business travellers who also want to work in the room, it is not suitable because there is no proper working desk

    This hotel was the best i ever had in Istanbul. check in was very easy, help desk staff are extremely nice and welling to help specially (Cavit and Sangmon). room is very clean ,room size is reasonable, worth the money . the room was so quit. breakfast was wonderful ( no much variety but was all in high quality) so the best thing in the hotel was the receptionist, i cancelled another hotel and extend my stay in this hotel

    the only things that need attention is the breakfast need more variety

    Very good

    Location and the friendly staff. Cleanliness and quality of facilities. Breakfast was good with enough varaitiy.

    Very small room with no windows. The bed size is not suitable for tall people. No desk to work on. Lighting inside the room is very unappropiatly dim. Not enough electricity outlets for portable devices. Tv set and remote are very old and hardly working. Room maintenance should be better (E.G.; the bathroom door handle was broken)

    Location, Location, Location :) Close to anything and everything!! Even though Germir Palas is in the middle of city, my room was very calm and quiet. As it was also very clean and comfy. The staff was super friendly; their service was great, punctual, professional, and provided my friend and I with help regarding tours, directions, and what to do/what not to do in Istanbul, and gave us 24/24 internet access for free during our whole stay. All in all, it was better than I had expected it to be!!! Am very glad with the choice I made by booking at Germir Palas and I would definitely book there again if I visit Istanbul again.

    The only thing I could mention is that it did not offer amenities but the staff was generous enough to offer us some a couple of times :)

    Superb

    The location of this hotel is fantastic. Taksim square, where Germir hotel located, is a center of public transportation (subway, airport bus, funicular) in Istanbul. Breakfast was also very good, even not very various, but daily soup, hot meals and fruits are great. I have stayed at 7th floor - I could see the morning sun on the sea in my room. The room is somewhat small, but enough to enjoy and rest and maintained clean. Wireless internet is free of charge-one of good reason to stay.

    The safe in the room is too small - you cannot keep your laptop or dsrl in the safe.

    Fabulous

    The location of the hotel is excellent. It is just on the opposite side of airport shuttle buses. It is also very close to Taksim square and Istiklal street (3 minutes distance walking).

    - Noises at night from nerby night clubs - The room is a little bit dark, even with all the lights are on - There are no enough sockets. I had to unplug the dresser light to plug the mobile phone charger

    Very good

    Location was just perfect, just take a bus from Ataturk airport on "havatas" Buses for 10tl (approx.7US) and at the last stop the hotel will be on infront of you on the other side of the street. Metro is just adjasent to you "taksim" which makes your life easy, Istiklal road which is almost a 24hr filled with people, shops, restraunts...etc

    Staff needs more traning about custemer service at the front desk, they give minimum infiormation about any query.

    Staff so helpful and supportive. Location excellent. Good size room and all facilities worked including internet. Well done.

    Decor a little dated but all clean and in good working order. More european channels on the Tv would be good!
