Hotel Review – Next2 Hotel, Taksim area (off Istiklal)
|Entrance to Hotel Next2, Istanbul|
At Hotel Next2 in Istanbul, I stayed in an A Suite (no kitchenette) and it suited my needs perfectly as I am try to enjoy local Turkish dining every chance I have. With breakfast included in daily rates, there was no need to bring groceries in. The B Suites (with kitchenettes) are even nicer than the A, and the A were extremely nice!
Another nice feature of these rooms is the addition of an extra room (great for families) with extra bedding in the separate room. This room also has a small table for those times you do decide to eat in.
Hotel Next2 is in a great location just minutes off Istiklal Avenue near Taksim Square in Istanbul (new city side) – Beyoglu. The hotel is rated as a 4.5* overall, and I can comfortably say this meets that standard easily in terms of cleanliness, location, amenities and service.
It’s also right next door to a police station (for those who are security conscious), just a 2 minute walk off Istiklal Ave. with the beauty of being close to the action, without any of the noise.

On the whole I would comfortably recommend either of these properties to any of my Istanbul bound clientele.
