"Fine choice for solo travellers"
I went there for 3 nights and it was pretty nice in terms of quietness, helpful staff and fine cleanliness. Despite its unique architecture, it needs renovation in some areas. It would be a very good choice for those who are travelling solo or for business. Once you arrive there you will find that you are far away from almost everything, except from Etiler 5-star restaurants and Rumeli Hisarı Castle. If you want your room view on the Bosphorus Bridge you should pay more.
They are at etiler which is the most expensive neighborhood in the city. You can find many restaurants and shopping malls close by. The hotel is very well designed and equiped. The staff is very polite and helpfull. They upgraded my room where i can see the bosforus. The only thing i can say is i could not find a hair dryer in the room.
we stayed in this hotel for six nights. it is out of the action areas close to the second bridge. but that should not be a problem if you are going to use the car anyway. the surprise in this hotel is the high quality of the interior design. it is a quite hotel , and the staff are nice. we stayed in a creative room. very nicely done. unfortunately there was a smell in the room. the staff were considerate and put us without delay in an executive room . although we liked the design and layout of the creative room. my advise to the management is to improve the systematic checking of room conditions. breakfast was nice and well served .
"Very good staff, but not 5-star conditions "
This was my first stay at Le Meridien Istanbul. I will start with the location, which is rather weird and hard-to-find. The staff is very polite and customer oriented, especially towards kids. Though the hotel gives you an impression of a 5-star hotel, you witness some obvious maintenance and cleaning issues. My pillow case had a stain and had a 'rip tear'. Tye room was 16.2 degrees C when I walked in and couldn't heat it up, had to call the service. They did something with the hot water that comes to the heating system and in over an hour the room temperature stabilized. The TV has the 'innovative hub' solution but the colors of TV are distorted. In addition, the air conditioner started making weird and creepy 'whistling' noises all of a sudden. There are taxis waiting outside the hotel pretty much at all times, so that's a convenience. The breakfast is good, though nothing extraordinary. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience at all, but the fact is that you face these little maintenance issues. Quite frankly, for the money I paid, next time I will seek for the value in another hotel in Istanbul.
"Business trip to Istanbul"
Different area in Istanbul than where I was before. Etiler and the area of Bebek etc is beautiful. From the hotel only 20 min taxi trip. Good restaurants, Nussr-et, etc. Hotel is good, service is good and the taxi,s are in front of the hotel waiting. Top spa and fitness. Breakfast is okay, nothing special. You cab have an upgrade to executive service on 14th floor. This is okay but not really worth while. There were no people in there so little bit boring than.
