“A wonderful business hotel, conveniently located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

You would expect that of Grand Hyatt. Nevertheless, it's worthwhile repeating how wonderful, clean, well equipped the rooms were. It's all seamlessly organised, the hotel just ticks like a Swiss clock. Food is amazing. Don't go anywhere near the deserts section if this even remotely tempts you. The bathroom has all you need with more than sufficient amenities. The hotel gym is all new and clean, well equipped. There is a sauna (and a steam bath, but that was closed when I visited). The staff is pleasant and helpful. The hotel is just below the Taksim square, so expect a 8-10 min climb to get there (a couple of other 5* hotels are at the very square if that is important). Hyatt has an outdoor swimming pool - not much you can do with it in winter. I had a corporate rate, which made sense; not sure if I'd pay the full price otherwise. All in all, if on a business travel and linked to the centre of this amazing city, then this is a marvelous choice for your stay.

Room Tip: Any that looks to the Bosphorus would be great! Wifi seems to be OK everywhere.

The Room

The Presidential Suite at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul is located on the 9th floor in room 948. My first impression of the room was that it was huge and never-ending. At 240 sq. meters and pricing at over 4100 Euro per night on average, this room was a dream come true for us.

Upon entering the suite, you’re greeted by a grand marble foyer leading to an elaborate living room with a nice stretch gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows providing awesome views of the Bosphorus. On your left, there’s a complete full and modern kitchen; to the right is a long hallway leading to the rest of rooms within the massive suite.

The the Presidential suite has a giant living room, full kitchen, a grand dining room table that seats 10, a separate office/study, a hallway bathroom, a king suite bedroom, and the most elaborate hotel bathroom I’ve ever seen. In fact, I think the master bathroom area alone was bigger than my two-bedroom apartment.

On the topic of the bathroom, the master bathroom was almost like a spa itself, featuring a private full-sized sauna, olympic-sized bathtub, a 6-jet power shower, two sinks fully stocked with June Jacobs amenities, a separate fairy-tale makeup vanity, a complete walk-in closet, and even a mini “ballet studio” with a ballerina bar/stretching area with full floor to ceiling mirrors! Though 3 of us shared the room for the weekend, the room could easily and comfortably sleep 8-10 with the use of rollaways and the many comfy couches tastefully placed within the suite.

Our Stay Experience/Overall Hotel Impressions

The hotel is located near Istanbul’s famous Taksim Square, and getting to the property is extremely easy via public transportation from the airport. For just 8 Turkish lire, you can hop on a Havatas bus from the airport, which will take you directly to Taskim Square in just 45 minutes. The ride was smooth and the buses ran very regularly. From Taksim Square, it’s just a short walk through a pretty park to the Grand Hyatt. The check-in process was a breeze, and we were informed that the hotel provides a complimentary daily happy hour in the executive lounge between 6-8 pm.

The happy hour was plentiful, featuring many fine wines and premium spirits along with small-plate appetizers such as cold-cuts, cheeses, and Turkish desserts. Breakfast is also held in the lounge daily and includes a vast buffet spread as well as a sit-down menu.

On a scale of one to five stars, If I could, I’d honestly rate this experience as above the scale. Everything about our stay was exceptional. There was not one thing I could complain about or even consider an issue. The staff, the attentive housekeeping personnel, the lounge offerings, the property, and the location all were out of this world.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt for just 1 night during the world economic forum in Istanbul last may. when we first arrived the ladies at the front desk were so helpful and always smiling, everybody at the hotel was always smiling, and nothing was too much for them. We were upgraded to an executive club room: A spacious, very clean and luxurious room with an amazing huge bathroom.
Breakfast was exellent with so much choices.

Small downside: The taxi ordered by the hotel, took from us triple the amount they usually do if you take a taxi just outside the hotel (probably not the hotel fault)

I will definitely re visit Grand Hyatt for more than a night

I am not sure by putting the word Grand, would this Hyatt Regency property become grand. Quality of the room very average, the shower door would not close properly, also due to the gap between the hings, the water would leak and wet the bathroom. No indication of knobs for hot or cold water. Not enough socktes to charge laptop, phone etc. So overall not the best "Grand Hyatt" i've stayed.

Arrived in hotel late night. but still the service was very good. And they offer us for an upgrade to suite room. The room was big, and very modern. Like it a lot. Too bad we only stayed for one night. but we would like to stay here again when we come to Istanbul another time. One thing we like about this hotel, starbucks coffee shop just few minutes walk behind the hotel.And also the concierge was very helpful.

I booked into the hotel for a conference at the ICC. The first thing you notice about Istanbul and the very few people can speak English. The hotel is modern and welcoming. The quality of the amenities and very friendly service made up for the language barrier between myself and the staff. It was also interesting that everything in the room worked, a very rare occurrence in hotels. This points out to high maintenance standards of the property.
