The Madison Hotel Istanbul Reviews

Standard 4 star hotel, but not recommended at all Jul 06, 2012
Like any other hotels in Istanbul’s Taksim district, The Madison Hotel is an expensive hotel. If it is necessary for you that you stay close to Taksim square and you are ready to pay more to this purpose, the Madison hotel is a good 4star choice, but if you like a quite area you can book a better hotel with same price or less in other districts such as the Sultan Ahmed or Shishli. What we will do in the next trip.

The first star point in this hotel is its interior design and architecture which is inspired from a geometric sign and repeated in all parts of the hotel even on napkins and towels. The hotel is clean and tidy all the day. Some staffs are nice but others show that they work only for money. The hotel does not have baggage weighing service, but one of employees helped me to carry the luggage to a postal agency and use their weighing facilities for free.

Our room did not catch of sun and had smell of humidity. The first day we felt that linens are not dried well and we requested dried linens! Toilet’s Flushing was not working properly and they were trying to repair it every day with no result.

Wireless internet was available in all areas but did not work in my room. Several of them came into the room and they tested my computer and saw that everything is fine, but responded that: “our wireless service is fine, if you have problem with it, you have to show your laptop to a service center”! Inevitably, all nights I went to the lobby to use the Internet that was not interesting experience because receptionist staff had noisy dispute with other employees every night. Also the lobby lights were off after 12:00 and I'd be forced to go back to my room. Last day Internet service in my room was ok but they said that we still have not changed anything; your laptop’s problem is fixed!

Card locking system was down in all the four-day that we were there and technical men were working on it until midnight with no result.

There were so many waiters in the restaurant for breakfast time. Although they were care for a fine service, but the large number of them in addition of their manager and supervisors in the small restaurant area would not create a pleasant feeling.

Hotel staffs were very kind with my daughter. Also they have a parrot in reception area which was very entertaining for my daughter. I am grateful for all the good memories that they made for my daughter.

Sounds like the service was not quite up to par. I stayed at the Ceylan Intercontinental in the Taksim area last year. Very nice hotel and good service. As you say, the hotels in Taksim area can be expensive, but I found the Ceylan reasonable for the quality if one can afford it.
