"Excellent hotel in a great location"
Right at the heart of Istanbul in Taksim Sq, this hotel offers everything a traveller needs from very spacious rooms with highly comfortable beds to excellent choice of restaurants but what catches the eye the most is the quality of service from the staff. At every level from the concierge to reception to room service, they delight you with their professionalism and politeness together with the willingness to help. We fell in love with Istanbul and this hotel was big part of the reason. The views from our room on the 11th floor were truly breathtaking and even better views were at the top floor restaurant and bar where we sat every night just to enjoy the scenery over the Bosphorus. The metro station is few minutes walk away where you can take the train to pretty much anywhere in Istanbul. It's so well connected that for a whole week's stay, we only took a taxi once and that was on day one. We have already made plans to return later this year and I would highly recommend this hotel.
"Exceptional Stay in Exceptional Hotel"
Nice hotel with polite staff. Every thing was perfect from arriving until leaving. We stayed in club room, the welcoming turkesh delights were very special. The over all atmosphere of the hotel was phenomenal...
"Classic Intercontinental format"
Don't expect surprises when you book at the intercontinental. Top service, supportive staff, all the bit and pieces you expect are there (including the security check point). For the Intercontinental Istanbul an additional advantage is the location just beside the Taksim square and the main streets. Rooms are large and the view from the top floors is great. There's a large lobby with several areas and shops and 2 restaurants that I didn't try. The business center called "Instant service" is equipped with Apple iMACS with 27 inches screens. There're a also a SPA and a summer swimming pool. Having not used these I cannot comment. Breakfast includes a large selection of food options for all the tastes and breakfast habits. Only one "cons": heating/air conditioning in room is a bit noisy. If the price is compatible with your budget this hotel can be a good place to stay for business but also for a holiday.
"Nice Hotel - Nice location"
Hotel is very nice, big lobby, comfortable room - and courteous staff. Only is smell of smokers coming through in A/C vents specifically in mornings. Disappointed also being a platinum member of IHG and no access to executive lounge. Overall NICE place.
"Check out time really"
Over all a good experience the room was acceptable. no upgrade was provided like other countries. amnesties are all good. front desk did not extend 2 hours so being gold elite and ex ambassador didn't help any way i had to go to airport couple of hours early.
