We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul for 6 nights in and had a wonderful time in the hotel and enchanting Istanbul. The hotel was beautiful - from the public areas and the pool to the extra large and very comfortable room and the bathroom. Given the low rise structure and probably smaller no. of rooms, the hotel feels more exclusive and is not overwhelmed with crowds or noise ... which is nice after coming back from the busy sights. The hotel is geared more towards the business clientele, but is still a perfect base for tourists to discover Istanbul. Its about 7-10 min walk to Taksim Square where you can catch the funicular to Kabatas and then connect to the tram line which goes to all the tourist sites in the old city, for TL 1.50 flat per mode of transport. From the square, you could also catch the old tram that goes through Istiklal Cadessi (with lots of restaurants), and connect to the older funicular down to near the Galata bridge ... while this route is scenic, it is longer as the old tram is less frequent and crowded. After coming back from the city to Taksim Square, if you're confused as to where to go, just look for the nearest tallest building (that's the Intercontinental) and head towards that direction. The Hyatt is opposite. A walk downhill from the Hyatt towards the sea also leads you nto the Dolmabahche Palace. Another tip, we found that the best moneychanger rates are those on the street directly opposite McDonalds, next to Taksim Square. The rates in the Old City are higher, but euros are also accepted at most shops.
