First time staying at an IHG property for a day-long layover in Istanbul. Best thing about the hotel is that it has a lot of organized trips in Istanbul and its vicinity (even as far as Troy and Cappadocia). They do not take too long, some only last for 4 hours but do show you the most exciting attractions of... More

Istanbul offer a lot of choices but, the Intercontinental remain at the top of my choices. The location is perfect and level or services still very high. Breakfast in terms of quality and quantity of available choices is fantastic. Restaurant is very good. Spa is very good but nothing extraordinary. It's old, but still offer a superb experience.

A beautifully appointed high quality hotel. The room had a gorgeous view of the Bosphorus, and Asian side of the city. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and professional.

This is a great hotel in an ideal location just on the north side of Taksim Park, only a hundred metre walk to the Taksim Metro station. Kabatas ferry pier / tram stop is an eight minute downhill walk, or two minutes (6TL) in a taxi. We had a superb Bosphorous view exec room on the 17th floor, and on... More

Currently staying here for five nights. Staying on 17th floor overlooking Taxsim park in an executive room. With this package we have access to the executive lounge which does free nibbles and beer from 5-7. I've stayed at other Intercontinental hotels and all vary in comfort level and services and facilities across the world. Nice room (not amazing) and definitely... More

The location was unbeatable, only steps away from the bustle of Taksim Square but located on a hill that keeps the noise and crowd away. We had a view of the Bosphorous which was really really nice. The room itself felt a little older and is definitely calling out for an upgrade. Internet was OK, not the highest speed and... More
