Expert Review

Themed properties can prove gimmicky and uninspired but these 22 individually designed rooms (including Anatolian, Pop Art, Art Nouveau, and the Garden), conjured up by the hotel's co-owner and architect Elif Ozedemir, are actually creatively put together. The garden room, for example, features bamboo walls and a pebbled floor in the bathroom (and looks into the hotel's green space outside) while the split level Turkish suite has a private hammam (Turkish bath). All rooms come with a LCD TV that doubles as a web browser. Lush's common areas, however, could do with more investment; they look like the designers may have ran out of money after the rooms were completed. Nonetheless, the location in Beyoglu is key, close to good shopping and nightlife, and prices in the off-season are extremely competitive.
