When looking among Istanbul’s ever rising price hotels, take a moment to look at Holiday Inn Istanbul City, in Topkapi (the neighborhood, not the palace). It is not in the center of Sultanhamet, I know, but the tram line T1, stops just in front of the hotel (less than a minute walking) which means you can be haggling in the... More

Stayed here for 5 nights on business last week. I was travelling internally in Turkey quite a bit, so the location is great for Ataturk Airport, but it is quite a hike to get to the Taksim area or beyond. The tram to Kabatas takes 30 mins, and is packed in the morning. The immediate area around teh hotel has... More

Staffs are kind but seems to be so tired of too much work.Rooms are clean but you suppose to ask for basic things like tooth brush &toothpaste . Breakfast was so so not a five star one.The only good point of hotel is that tram stop is exactly infront of entrance.

Four star at best. Location is good to go to city centre and main tourist spots. However the hotel is in serious need of refurbishment. Poor craftsmanship poor finishing touches. My local builder does a better job. Breakfast is fine but nothing worth noting. Staff thick and slow. Poor English plus poor customer service.

The rooms have a central air conditioning system which is very uncomfortable, the settings cannot be adjusted. The room was as hot as an oven 28 degrees Celsius!

While this hotel is not really in walking distance to most of the tourist attractions in Istanbul, it is located right at a tram stop that will take you directly to Sultan Ahmet where all the tourist stuff is and with one change you can get to the airport by tram and metro in around 40 minutes.
