This is one of few centrally located boutique hotels in Istanbul that has an edge of style and calm over its dated larger-scale neighbours in and around Taksim.
With only 35 guest rooms Lush is both homely as well as free from the general barrage of customers and hotel lobby enthusiasts that can make one’s stay very chaotic in busy inner city areas. Although it is best to request a room at the back away from the traffic of Siraselviler, one of the main roads into Taksim.
The rooms are well designed, all a little different in their interior decor and style and boast treats such as L’Occitane toiletries and CD players, as well as clever storage solutions, free wireless and comfortable furniture.
The general emphasis of the hotel’s concept is personal service and attention to detail, so be sure to make the most of the staff’s availability for help and advice.
