Fantastic hotel and very helpful staff for check in and check out. The best was Sajuck who helped with wireless Internet and every time I met him he would come and greet with a smile, not like a typical Turkish when it comes to smile or greet , it would be like spending a fortune.

I recently stayed two nights as part of a tour group through Turkey. The hotel is actually quite okay for a night's sleep and a shower in a clean, comfortable room as you would expect from this chain brand. Wifi is free in rooms and I encountered no problems using it. We were first given a room which reeked of... More

I traveled to Istanbul for business, and this hotel is relatively convenient to my office location - but there is NOTHING nearby - no restaurants, shops or alternatives. I asked reception to help me determine if their sister hotel - Crowne Plaza Istanbul Old City - had availability for the week-end, as I am extending my stay to see the... More

This could be a really good hotel, however, its location is makes it a strange place to stay. The immediate surroundings are far from ideal, the outside is a steep busy street often without even pavement for pedestrians. This makes most of the rooms a bit noisy and offering little to no view at all. However, with a little walk... More

I was there on 20/04/2013. Bad experience, rooms are not good. Area is not good. Reception are NOT friendly at all!!! bad area.. full of drunk people at night..Terrible stupid breakfast. No view at all for the rooms, you can really find many hotels better than this one in Istanbul. I regret that I stayed there.

The hotel is not too far from Taksim square (15 min walk or hotel shuttle) but is located in a street full of car garages. The road in front of the hotel is very busy and I could hear the street noise in my room which was on the 10th floor seems the rooms are not sound proofed and have... More

My preferred hotel in Istanbul is the Ceylan however as it was full this time around I decided on this Crowne Plaza. The first thing you will notice is the location of the hotel when you arrive. Located on a steep hill surrounded by car workshops it really isn't very nice. However a short walk away on the main road... More
