10/10 Exceptional

LOVED IT but had to pay in cash because.....
This hotel is in a great location, Karakoy. It's near trams and the ferries, easy for getting around town. I loved the hotel, my room was nice, bed was great. Breakfast was very good each morning. They helped me with covid testing and transportation to the airport. One important thing to mention for Americans interested in staying here. None of my credit cards worked when I got there. I had used them all around Turkey, and Istanbul, no problem, but here I had to think fast because I wasn't prepared. Luckily I had enough cash (I had set aside to pay a guide) and that got my into my room. Apparently Nabu only uses one bank for their credit card account and that bank won't accept any credit cards without a PIN attached to it. Even my debit card I do have a pin for wasn't working. So until they realize this or have enough visitors having this problem, please bring cash to pay them.

Very stylish hotel with a great atmosphere
Stylish modern lobby and rooms, very nice and helpful staff, tasty breakfast, clean 10/10, comfy bed. Next to the best places to eat and dance. Very good choice if you are joung and energetic or a party animal. Not good if you travel with kids.

2/10 Poor

Great for paryting, not for business.
If you're here to party and stay out until all hours of the night,, by all means stay here. It's in party central. The thumping of the competing discos will attest to that. But if you're here for business or looking to get up to explore the city, this isn't it. The rooms are small and have no desk. The food was average in a city known for its food. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great service at the bar.

8/10 Very Good

Great location, very small room
Excellent location, right by lots of restaurants and bars, but the room was much smaller than I anticipated. Would not recommend for two friends to share for more than a night. The hotel staff are able to arrange for on-location PCR tests, which was very helpful.
