Excellent hotel, very good and confortable rooms and nice and quiet location. At the check out I first encountered a lady (dressed in black) (who did not even looked at my face when I said I was checking out and continued just looking at the monitor as if I was invisiible but luckily a second and EXTREMELY nice and professional very young and beautiful lady made a very professional, courteous and efficient check out. My check out was on monday morning 21/1/2013........

I have to mention that the phones in the room are VERY old and they are so worn out that it is even difficult to read the extensions

I've stayed at this Hilton a few times in my travels through Istanbul and I enjoy the atmosphere and rooms. The hotel itself has so much history and it is displayed throughout. It has a great refreshing pool for summer visits, nice spa and gym. The breakfast is great and the staff is very friendly, I had a great conversation with Camil the waiter and he was very helpful. The hotel is also a short walk away from Istiklal street.

Room Tip: My husband had a room facing the pool a couple of times, he was able to see Turkish wedding festivit...

Good place to stay!
Close to the shopping area and taxim square.
Great view over the Bosphorous from the room
Lounge access gives you a free meal and drinks.
polite staff
And good value for money
A bit away from the historic monuments though - 20-30 min with a taxi during no traffic jam hours

Stayed five nights in January while on a business workshop - which was also taking place in the hotel. Nice big rooms with balcony, excellent complementary buffet breakfast, and good amenities. Certainly a 'has-been' hotel where some of the visitors have included Queen Elizabeth, Mohammed Ali and the Kennedys. If you prefer a large, grand hotel, just the way they used to be, this is the place to stay! Walking distance to Takism square and close to Dolmabache.

Nicely located on the European side of the city. The hotel is very clean and modern with nice size rooms. Its about a10 minute walk to Taksim Square with lots of shopping near by. You can catch light rail in Taksim that will take you around the city. We upgraded to the concierge floor with access to the lounge which was great. We also used the gym and pool while we were there both of which were well above average for this type of hotel. I recommend getting a room with a Bosphorus view since it is such a beautiful waterway.
