We just got back from our trip to Istanbul. We stayed at the Hilton for 6 days and you cannot ask for a more luxurious stay. We stayed in the guest rooms (floors 5-24); the rooms are large with large flat screen tvs and all the conveniences you would expect. The mini bar is well stocked but pricey. I ordered a glass of warm milk once and it cost 13TL. We didn't get breakfast from the hotel as in the 60TL range, instead went to restaurants near our places of visit. The swimming pool and Spa are restricted to the executive rooms and the guest rooms only have access to the fitness center. The hotel staff were all very good and very helpful. There is free 1 hour wifi pass available at the lobby. There are also 3 computers in the connection lounge with free internet and printer access.
If you opt for this hotel, the things to consider are the taxi fares from the Airports to the hotel. There is no need to prebook as they can be a rip off charging around 40-60 euros. We took the normal taxi and ask them to go by the meter. IST to/fro Hotel came in at 55-60TL (approx. 20EUR). SAW to/fro hotel came in at 110TL (approx 35EUR).
The hotel has access to taxi rank nearby, so if you are going into town, there is a more or less ready supply of taxi available. The taxis you catch from there go by the meter and in our experience were very honest and helpful. Hotel to Eminonu (~20TL), Sultanahmet (~30TL), Dolmabahce (~15TL) etc.
The hotel neighbourhood has some good restaurants, supermarkets, Pizza places, convenience stores at around 10-20 mins walk.
