As the name suggests, the 4* CVK Taksim is located in Taksim, considered by many as the hub of Istanbul, and the place where business meets leisure, past meets present, and for many, night meets day. Opened in October 2010 at the junction of Taksim Square with Istiklal Street (truly a shopper`s paradise!), the CVK Taksim provides easy access to all corners of Istanbul. What better way of discovering Istanbul than by taking the historic tram along Istiklal Street, before boarding the equally historic Tunel metro and changing to the modern tram across the Golden Horn, continuing into the heart of historical Istanbul and the Sultanahmet quarterThe hotel offers 85 contemporary and comfortable guestrooms featuring complimentary high speed Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, interactive TV, pillow menu, bathrobes and slippers as standard. Buffet breakfast and a-la-carte services for lunch and dinner are served in the rooftop La Nouba restaurant where outstanding views of the Bosphorus vie with the hotel`s delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Alternatively guests are invited to enjoy the menu at the hotel`s street-level People`s Café Bar-Brasserie, or appreciate a cocktail in La Serenite Lobby Bar. All in all, a pretty good choice of hotel from where to enjoy Istanbul.
