Eresin Taksim Premier: Review

Explore Istanbul from the heart of the iconic Taksim district. Walk along the famous pedestrian mall, Istiklal Street, to sample Turkish coffee and local baklava or Turkish delight. 

East meets west in this ancient center of Mediterranean trade. Get lost in a maze of stalls at the Grand Bazaar. Marvel at ancient architecture from the Byzantine and Ottoman empires before returning to modern comfort at Eresin Taksim Premier.

You’ll be treated to Turkish hospitality by friendly front desk staff. Top off your stay with 360-degree rooftop views of Istanbul from the buffet breakfast restaurant.

Scorecard

Best Parts:
  • Central location. Walking distance to Taksim Square, Istiklal Street, and public transport.
  • VIP service. Friendly, helpful and professional staff.
  • Cosy decor. Reflects Istanbul’s history and culture.
  • Breakfast with a view. 360-degree views of Istanbul city from the rooftop terrace restaurant. 
Could Be Better:
  • Small Lifts. A little awkward if more than one couple squeezes inside.
  • No desk chair. Working space has a stool with no back support.
  • Limited power points at working space. Fiddly to charge laptops and phones.
