I can say just one thing ,that I REALLY enjoyed in Istanbul and Hilton Hotel. But I recommend you to avoid having your meals in A-plus restaurant which is located near the hotel. They charged us 325 TL just for 1 main course and 1 starter.

We travelled with our young children and my husband's parents and having rooms on the Exec Floor offered us an ideal way to meet up, relax, re-fuel and visit. The lounge amenities were excellent as was the service. Nice indoor pool and gym and the Terrace and Chinese restaurants were both very good. Taxis into the old part of town... More

The views are fabulous. The breakfast fantastic (gorgeous buffet with fresh fruits and delicious breads, as well as made to order omelettes, pancakes, etc). Our room was large and the bed was comfortable. The pool is lovely (but be prepared for a long hike to get there). The staff, however, were utterly without interest in their guests. The concierge gave... More

After living here for 8 days for a conference, I'd like to offer the following suggestions to business travelers (since there are already so many detailed descriptions of the hotel) - When you check in, make sure they put you in a non-smoking room if you want one, as it seems most are still smoking - Do not take a...

As you approach the Hilton Istanbul, you just know that you are about to enter someplace special. Walk through the hotel lobby areas and read about their magnificent history where many special and important moments have been played out in such a great hotel.

It was my first time in Hilton Istanbul. First night I was given a room on the lower ground floor overlooking a park but with a busy and noisy street overhead. Had to take 2 different lifts, and walk a mile to get to my room. It was incredibly noisy all night from the outside, not exactly the hotel's fault... More
