Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye Review

I have been to Istanbul, including the Taksim area, a number of times. For my latest trip, I selected the Crowne Plaza Istanbul – Harbiye. The hotel is located about a 15-minute walk from Taksim Square in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Harbiye. Harbiye is a bit of the new ‘Moda’ here, which has become seriously […]
