This was my second stay at the Movenpick Hotel Istanbul. I can honestly say that it was near perfect. The staff are always friendly, attentive and go out of their way to make your stay pleasurable as well as memorable. I can certainly recommend this hotel; especially for those traveling on business.
The staff were always there to serve us! very comfortable, friendly and quiet Hotel in the middle of a big city in Istanbul is just perfect! Room was good, very comfortable and very clean. the staff during the night were very professional and they serve us food until very late! there was no rush for us to leave, we really appreciate.
Overall the hotel is good but not impressive and a bit worn down. The room was very comfortable, quite, and nice. Parking is a hassle. The garage should have internal access and easier enter/exit procedure. Roof top bar/cafe is very enjoyable. One major issue was staff: Reception, concierge, parking staff, and luggage handlers certainly need training and a good crash course on how to be polite, available, but not intrusive. No one wants is to hassle with hotel staff about luggage handling and parking a car.
"Cozy rooms and a great breakfast"
I ve been here for a couple of days on a business trip and I had a good experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful and they did their best to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Not all the members of the staff speak English but they make a good team and help each other so we didn t consider this an issue. The breakfast varied and you could find both Turkish special dishes and European dishes, fruit, yogurts, pancakes and fresh orange juice. The hotel is on the European side of Turkey so if you need to get on the Asian side at an early hour, be prepared for a horrible traffic and at least an hour waiting in the car. If you need to get a taxi, the hotel staff will order one for you but if you re going on the Asian side, make sure the driver has permission to cross the bridge. Otherwise, they ll either ask you to pay a special tax or they ll simply refuse to take you. One other important thing is that it will take about 45 minutes to get to the airport by car from the hotel.
Allways a pleasure to stay overnight. Top quality and service and even very silent once you know day and night traffic in istanbul; if putting little critics: after years of absence i missed this time salmon at the breakfast buffet
