The hotel is well-located. The rooms are smaller than we expected and not all that cool--that is, the hotel purports to be "trendy". It has all the bells and whistles, but somehow it doesn't come off. We were travelling with another couple, and their room was very, very small. Our air-conditioning was not terrific. In your reviews, patrons noted how great the breakfast was. We (all 4 of us) thought it was mediocre. The hotel uses a downstairs restaurant. Again, very trendy. However, the service was absolutely poor, the milk was sour, and the buffet was less than inspiring. We're not picky people, but we could have found a less expensive hotel with better service and a better breakfast. I could not recommend this hotel.

A fabulous hotel to stay in. I loved the location- near to lots of shops, bars and reasonably priced restaurants. It's away from the very touristy and expensive Sultanhamet but nearby public transport makes it easy to get to all the sites both north and south of the river. The staf were very friendly and the breakfast provided was excellent- definitely the best I"ve had while travelling. I would definitely recommende this hotel.

This is a small contemporary hotel, just a couple of blocks from Taksim square, from which various areas in Istanbul can be easily accessed, e.g. by the funicular/tram system, metro, buses, and a continuous passage of taxis. The immediate area has many restaurants and cafes, and is always busy. The hotel is very clean and well maintained, with a comfortable feel. I had a small but comforatable "junior delux" room (404), with a double/queen size bed on the 4th floor. It faced a busy street, but was sufficiently high that there was no noise problem (also, windows were closed with AC). From speaking with friends staying in other rooms, it seems the "04" and "05" series of rooms face the main street, and I presume the higher up, the more quiet. The "03" series (and presumably others) do not face the main street. The staff was extremely congenial and helpful, and made the best efforts with English. The complimentary breakfast area on the lower level has a nice contemporary and pleaasant ambience, and the selections are beautifully presented. Lots of fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, breads, etc. I would definitely consider staying again at the Lush Hotel.

We stayed in Lush Hip Hotel from 24/4/08 until 30/4/08. It is a small boutique hotel located less than five minutes from Taksim Square in the hip area of Beyoglu. I must say that location played a key role in our decision. If you're a young person who likes to explore the restaurant and bar scene, listen to my advice and DO NOT stay in Sultanahmet. It's tourist galore. Beyoglu is busy and bustling, but it's where you want to be after you've seen the major sites. Cafes, restaurants, bars, taverns, shopping, it's all there. The hotel is a refurbished old appartment building and it's furnished and decorated with minimal elegance and true style; a relaxed and effortless kind of luxury. There is a small gym and a spa. (I enjoyed a wonderful massage there) Every room is unique in its decoration. Ours was a very spacious one, with nice wooden floors, a fluffy carpet, minimal furniture but very tasteful. There was a small plasma TV with the typical cable choices. The room was cleaned everyday, towels changed, bathrobes and slippers provided, and generally anything you'd expect from a good hotel. The bathroom was smallish but with a roomy (and strong) shower, nice wooden counter, clean, very pleasant. The staff was nice and helpful - not really friendly or obliging though. We had to pay for our airport rides. Our driver did not speak ANY english and he drove us to the international terminal despite our warning that we were going to the domestic one! Not a big deal but you’d expect the hotel staff would have briefed him. Also, something that really bothered me was that a reception guy forgot to make a restaurant reservation for me and they lied about it, said they couldn’t find a table. I called myself and of course found one! The breakfast was a let down. Stale coffee, a little cheese, a little bread. Only had it once, although it was included in the price. All in all a nice and comfortable hotel, but not a cheap option!
