noisy at night
Location good but unable to sleep at night due to loud music blaring out from nearby club. Staff lovely but really unable to locate us to a room unaffected by the music.

Don t bother
Old place, noisy surrounding, rooms are dirty. No room service. Hotel does not have alcohol license. Walls are so thin you can hear next room clearly. Not to worth to value.

Ok Hotel. A bit expensive for the service!
Hotel was ok. I stayed 2 days in Sultanahmet area and 2 days at Taksim. The 2 days at Sultanahmet were amazing as I feel welcomed and treated as a guest than a customer. Occidental is not a bad hotel. I just don't like the room layout as the bathroom has no privacy at all and room was super small. I feel you can get a better hotel in the same price. The best thing about this hotel is its location.

the hotel is more of a small three star boutique hotel than a four star. The room was clean and perfectly located on Istiklal street for shopping, a late night walk, clubbing but this make it in the middle of a very noisy district with a club that doesn't shut until early morning so if you have trouble sleeping with noise, this is definitely not a good choice for you. Otherwise the staff are helpful, the hotel is well located and rooms are fairly priced.

Beautiful decor and nice cafe - but the ac malfunctioned and got stuck on cold and the day manager didn't take it seriously, just came in and turned it off and on again, which really ruined our stay.

Loved the decor, design, staff and awesome location of this Hotel! i enjoyed my stay tremendously and would happily stay here again - Breakfast could of been more exciting and there could of been more lighting in room and a more private shower if you sharing only, but otherwise a pure delight!,

We were 3 Couples, stayed in best Junior Suite Category Room, for 5 nights in last week of April. Air Conditions were not working in any of the Room. Hotel should inform us before check-in. I have been all around the world but have never seen such a disgusting House Keeping. The Hotel should have been given negative marking in this. The moment we chkin (and we chkin late in evening) we found the Rooms were not clean. There were so much hairs and dirt on the floors. The towels were not clean. The Washbasin/sink was choked and was also leaking. Hotel have to call the plumber at night to stop the water leakage. As A/c were not working we have to open the windows, but nobody can sleep while the window is open as being on the main street/near clubs its very noisy and disturbing until dawn 4:00 am. If you close you will die with suffocation. So terrible nights we spent. The hot water kettle in the room is horrible design. In order to make the room Stylish they have done blunders. The Toilet smells badly in all the rooms, as its like the Toilet Seat opening directly in the Room. If you hang and also get noted it down on the reception to clean the rooms properly, then also House Keeping will not clean the Rooms. The same complaint of cleanliness is seen with other guests shouting at the reception. The only positive point is that Hotel is right on Istiklal Street but thats also turns negative that results in noisy nights. I will never recommend anyone to stay there.
