    The hotel is located a minute from Istiklal St. So it is very convenient for those who want to stay downtown where the night life and the shops are.

    1. The stuff of the hotel could barely speak and understand english. And some of them had no idea of how the hotel runs; no professionalism at all! 2. The breakfast was served in a cafe about 1/2km away from the hotel! And though we paid 15 euros per person per day, the breakfast was too poor ( in some cases just a toast and a coffe!) that we had to buy from other stores something extra for breakfast! Not to mention that when we had booked for the hotel and breakfast the hotel didn't think appropriate to let us know that the breakfast wouldn't be served at the hotel!! 3. The room wasn't cleaned well and even we spent 4 nights at the hotel, not even once did they changed the sheets!! 4. The air condition didn't work. 5. It is an overestimated hotel; it may have modern furnitures but it is just for the image.

    The rooms were new and clean.

    We had booked a superior double room but were given a twin room on arrival. After complaining we were given a double room with no windows. This room cost 165 euros. Even in the youth hostels I've stayed in you get a window!! In the morning we complained again and they gave us a twin room with the beds pushed together. On check on they only gave us a 10% discount!!!! We weren't impressed with this place at all.

    Modern hotel with trendy interior, yet nice homey feel to it. Ideally located to enjoy the nice restaurants, cafe's and shops in beyoglu especially cihangir. Very good value for your money!! I would definitely recommend it.

    The ratio between price and quality is simply amazing. The hotel has a great strategic location, two minutes walk from Istiklal and only 5 minutes from Taksim. The parking, reccomended by the hotel is very convenient and close to both the hotel and to Istiklal. The staff at reception was different every day, but very nice. The apartments are not different from the pictures that are posted on the internet, I only had the the impression that the rooms are bigger ... but that's not a trouble.

    What I did not like in the hotel is just a detail, I am writting it just because I think that the management has to have it in mind. We stayed in apartment 101 and every day we had problems with cable tv Digiturk. Upon arrival we asked for biofuel for the fireplace , but it was not available and we were promissed to receive it the next day. This did not happen until the end of our four-day stay. When leaving the hotel we were asked to pay 5 lira for a bottle of water that we have not consumed , something that is not truthful and it seemed rather odd for a hotel of this class... May be the maid is not reliable enough..

    The location is excellent!

    I was disappointed that even though with booking months in advance, we were placed on the first floor, in a smaller room, directly off the noisy lobby. Our traveling companions booked weeks after us and had a much nicer room on a higher floor. Also, the animal skin rug was a turn off to us as vegetarians.

    It is difficult to fault this hotel. If you are planning a short vacation and want to be at the centre of it all and don't want the hassle of taking cabs everywhere, this is where you want to stay. The hotel is 200m from the main shopping street (Istiklal Avenue) and has many great little quirky bars and restaurants all within walking distance. A traditional Hammam (Galatasary) is also located on the street just behind the hotel. We had a fantastic trip and would definately stay at the Stories Apart Hotel again.

    Since its a boutique hotel, taxi drivers don't really know how to get there so make sure you have directions (preferably a map) with you and the hotels number when you are heading out. Also, the hotel is located on a narrow street where cars are not allowed to access so you will need to walk approx. 100M (uphill) to reach the entrance of the hotel - this is not such an issue though if you have a small amount of luggage and plan on not wearing heels!
