We stayed at the Conrad Istanbul for 8 nights recently, for vacation.
It is pretty much what you would expect of a Conrad in a big urban city – very nice, posh, and expensive, but luckily we were staying there with Hilton points. Because we were HHonors Diamond members, we got upgraded to a room with a very nice view of the Bosporus, and the included downstairs breakfast buffet had a huge number of choices for things to eat.
The Conrad is definitely what I would describe as a business hotel, and it was a ways away from most of the tourist sites like the Golden Horn, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace – but it did have a very nice view of them. I took about a million pictures down the Bosporus from the HHonors Club Lounge on the top floor.
And, it wasn’t too difficult to get to other areas of the city – at the foot of the hill, within walking distance, there is a ferry dock, and it was easy and fairly quick to take ferries to get around. In fact, I think it was quicker to take the ferry (even having to change on the Asia side) into the Old Town area than to take a cab at most times of day due to the traffic. In any case, it was definitely more scenic, and we loved the tea you could get on the ferries. There were also some nice restaurants with great views in the area of the ferry terminal.
If you are in Istanbul for vacation, this is a bit out of the tourist-path way, but otherwise excellent. For business in its part of town, it would be great.
