    location

    This is not a professional hotel run and managed by immatured staff. On checking in the hotel, we were made to pay for the stay even though my credit card details were with them. Staff at the reception said this is hotel rule which is really pathetic. The whole hotel is always very hot and smelly as the hotel does not put on the ac.No ac in the rooms also Breakfast is bad, there was no quilts in the room, no chair in the room, no extra pillows, and above all we had some guest in our room , one night, a family of 3 people, and hotel reception called us saying that guest are not allowed in the room. What nonsense? we had to tell our guest to leave and then we went in their hotel nearby. This hotel should be removed from Booked.net list

    Location on Taksim Square Breakfast Decent standards - I knew the hotel from my previous visit

    Staff - miced level of hospitality. Some good, some cold(ish). None great, actually. I know I should learn Turkish - but the staff should know at least basocs of English (Reception OK, but restaurant staff none at all) Spa facilities - they do not have a Turkish spa or sauna there

    Superb

    The location is perfect, couldn't have been better! The staff is extremely polite and well-educated. Our room was large and nice-decorated. The hotel was decorated in Ottoman style allover and this gives a very otantic atmosphere.

    Very good

    VERY IMPORTANT: SQUARE HOTEL is the name of this hotel, if you look for Ottoman Palace, you will not find it! Nice Location. Grab this hotel if you can get a good price. It is cheaper than neighboring hotels and is right on Taksim Square. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    The hotel name is NOT Ottoman Palace, but look for the name SQUARE HOTEL. I wish this was fixed in the Booked.net listing. I found it because I was a little familiar with the area. Otherwise this is a solid hotel with great views and a great breakfast. It has a retro feel to it. The top floor is not soundproof so you may hear a live performance by a band until about 11 pm, but after that its no problem. Seems like a family and retro oriented place. May not be suitable for trendy or chic folks who prefer a "city-cool" type of environment.

    good location top floor view

    Too expensive for the service provided. room was extremely small and not even squared; the ''ottoman'' thing is only visible at the ground floor as the rooms have got NOTHING of ottoman style. very poor minibar

    Only Location

    Actually we living in rooms that we didnt booked and paid accordingly. Thats mean we paid for Surprior Twin room with 36 sequer meters with Othman Furnture and sea view but we staid at very small room according to the following: first night we staid at room number 207 ( very poor and bad room) ( wall view) other nights we staid at room number 409 after claim and long discussions with staff this room less than 20 sequer meter with very limmitted part of sea view! So I think and believe that Othman Palace should refund us accordingly. Tripl Bed room for kids was fair So please we need from Hotel Refund us the difference between what we booked and where we lived actually these 5 nights!!

    Superb

    Super location and the politeness of the staff very professional. even it was crowded and busy but they were trying their best to satisfy every body during the high season. if I were to visit Istanbul, I will join them again. I would give them 9/10.

    Pls they need to do little & improve the housekeeping, but truly their housekeeping staff R very good and honest, polite. Also I wished if their breakfast were at the roof rather than in the bedroom level. U know it is nice to eat at the best location,
