This hotel has many disadvantages: -location: it is far away from the old city. So if you want to do tourism is not the best option ( probably it could be for business purposes) -staff is not as helpful as could be expected of a 5 star hotel. They are polite, but if you have a problem they do not... More

The hotel is near the bridge in Istanbul, based in a high tower overlooking the city. The rooms are not extremely large. The room I had, was equipped with a sort of mezzanine floor (2 steps up) overlooking the city. The room itself was not super clean, eg the bed smelled of a previous person. Not so nice, but when...

I stayed at the Plaza Hotel Istanbul for business and it was perfectly located for walking distance to the office - a must in Istanbul given the traffic! The rooms were simple and clear, an impressive view. The breakfast was good, but the coffee was not great considering we were in Turkey! I would probably try a different hotel on... More

Nice and modern with great standard rooms. Food is OK for western standards (had the salmon salad) and all the wifi is strong. Staff knows English and are quick. TV has the few english (american) channels and the bathroom is not bad. It is not near anything touristic, but id you are being picked up and won't rely on walking... More

Literally in the middle of Istanbul, I found this hotel has a good price/value. It's close to many areas, including the Bosphorus bridge and it's on top of one of the main streets of Istanbul. Try to get a room on higher levels and in the front side of building to enjoy Bosphorus and European side view. Rooms are comfy,... More

Stayed for a total of 67 Nights as was on a business trip. The hotel itself states that it is of 5* quality but it would be very generous to class it as even 4*. Good points about the hotel is that the rooms are of a very nice size, with high ceilings, and having been on both the 15th... More

I stayed in Plaza Hotel for 2 nights in November this year. My room was very clean and fairly comfortable. The Location of the Hotel is quite good, if you have to visit business friends in Mecidiyeköy, Etiler or Levent. Down to the Bosphorus is also not far away as well as to the Taksim Square. It is not really... More

I stayed at Plaza Hotel Istanbul for 2 nights and was disappointed as it was rated as a 5* hotel but was only 4*. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom well organised and a nice shower but tissues were missing. The staff is not very attentive. The breakfast has good varieties. The scrambled eggs were tasteless.

Stayed in the hotel for four nights on a business trip. My room (on the third floor) lacked a view, but I didn't book the hotel myself so couldn't ask for one. Not bothered by this. Room was a great size and the bathroom was also big, with a large shower. Bed was very comfy and room was clean. Breakfast... More
