What a great place! Great location right in the heart of Taksim. So many great restaurants and bars right outside the front door. When I arrived, I was upgraded to penthouse unit, amazing. Beautiful sea views from my private terrace. Large sitting room, fireplace and...More
Stayed here in April 2013. Great location that's quiet, yet minutes away from Istiklal Avenue. We took a junior suite, which was compactly organised - small toilet with strong shower, open kitchenette (hob, sink, coffee maker, kettle), tall shelf with TV separating sofa/cupboard area from...More
Through a mix up between the taxi driver and the hotel (beware, it is hard to find!) we ended up at the wrong Stories hotel (there are 3 of them). Our charming host offered either to deliver us to the right one, or an upgrade...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
