This hotel is WOW! The rooms are so big and so poshy, elegant and fashionable. Upon arrival we were given a free room upgrade + free wifi in the room too. The bathroom is very elegant too. We requested to stay on a top floor to have views of the city. Upon arrival and once checked into our room, we... More

I had an executive conference in this hotel and was very well treated every step of the way. To me it is the perfect combination of Turkish hospitality, US service orientation and German quality and sincerity (the GM is a German). It is in perfect location for business trips, not so much for sightseeing. Can highly recommend it!

Just got back from Istanbul and loved staying in this hotel! The location is slightly far from the main tourist attractions in Sultanahmet, but not too bad as the hotel is right beside the Levent train station (train, funicular, and tram will get you there in about 30 mins). and the area near the hotel has a number of good...

This hotel is perfect for relaxation, the spa is fantastic, make sure to set a side time for it. The breakfast is incritable, the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is far from Istanbul attractions I recommend using the Metro to get to Taksim square, the metro is clean and fast. Try to avoid taxis as much as you... More

We just came back from Turkey. We stayed at the Istanbul Edition Hotel. It was just wonderful. From the moment you walk in, you feel at home. We cannot say enough about the staff. They made us feel so welcomed. They are so warm and friendly, and cannot do enough for you. We really loved it!!!! Highly recommend it.

This hotel echos L.A. or NYC glam. It's extremely minimalist and state-of-the art. There are buttons in the room to open the shades! Amazing. The spa is to die for! The pool/spa area holds a sauna, steamroom, and SNOW room. It's a showstopper! The location is a bit far from tourist sites. One must take two trains and a tram... More

I arrived and I had a room upgrade, helpful staff, the room was amazing, big, quiet, comfortable and spacious. The bed was soo comfortable that I did not want to wake up in the morning. I had a business dinner at the Cipriani restaurant inside of the hotel, the food was well presented, delicious and the dessert unforgettable. Service was... More

I stayed here on business. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was lovely to be in, quiet, and the location good for my business meetings Wifi was included in the room rate and worked well, if rather slow (too slow for large pdf files).

Probably the best hotel room and breakfast room we've stayed. Super helpful staff from the very beginning - concierge Cenk and reservations Nil were great in correspondence. Cipriany restaurant is super- food, service and ambiance. ESPA SPA even situated underground is very professionally designed and run. Try the hamam treatment with Wayan! Even the location is not so great, the... More

If coming to Istanbul for business or pleasure, this is a great hotel. The design is clean and modern and the staff are actually overly helpful (a few times I tried to avoid them so I would not get trapped in a lengthy talk). Rooms are very large with nice amenities...I was in a "loft room" on the 9th floor... More
