Walking into the lobby of this place is a bit like walking into an Ottoman-themed Disneyland hotel – soooo much gold it hurt my eyes! The rooms are, thankfully, not as gold and are nicely done up, clean and spacious. Generally it’s a very nice hotel but it comes with quite a price tag and I think you could get better in the area for the same price. The hotel is right on Taksim Square and rooms overlook the square and the city beyond. It’s quite a busy road and the square is often full of revellers so if you’re on a lower floor it might be best to ask for a room at the back, which apparently also have nice view.Recommended for:

Ottoman Palace rises right at the very heart of Istanbul – the hotel overlooks Taksim square. Occupying such a great spot, the hotel does justice to its location. It is lavishly decorated around the theme that gives the hotel its very name. The lobby/reception area is quite palatial with classical furniture, portraits of Ottoman sultans and coat of arms. The rooms are modern though, they do not bear any trace of the decorative appetite that’s highlighted in the lobby.
The rooms overlook either the square or they are blessed with a view of the Bosphorus. The rooms that overlook the square are equipped with sound-proof windows. So you do not need to worry about the noise (unless you leave the windows open)
The hotel’s topmost floor restaurant has no open air part. But it has a smoking area & offers a fantastic view of the Bosphorus. The restaurant hosts live music and Oriental dance shows.Recommended for:
