Right at the heart of Istanbul in Taksim Sq, this hotel offers everything a traveller needs from very spacious rooms with highly comfortable beds to excellent choice of restaurants but what catches the eye the most is the quality of service from the staff. At every level from the concierge to reception to room service, they delight you with their...

Don't expect surprises when you book at the intercontinental. Top service, supportive staff, all the bit and pieces you expect are there (including the security check point). For the Intercontinental Istanbul an additional advantage is the location just beside the Taksim square and the main streets. Rooms are large and the view from the top floors is great. There's a...

Hotel is very nice, big lobby, comfortable room - and courteous staff. Only is smell of smokers coming through in A/C vents specifically in mornings. Disappointed also being a platinum member of IHG and no access to executive lounge. Overall NICE place.

The stay was pleasant. The price is affordable excluding weekends. The staff are excellent. Food and minibar are overpriced. Tv remote is terrible where you can't jump channels over 9, you have to press channel by channel. Location is excellent.

Had a short business trip here, and the hotel was very well located, near Taksim Square. Good facilities, nice rooftop bar, overall a good location. Rooms are a bit dated, but well maintained. Service was good, staff are attentive and most speak sufficiently good English.

Staying in Sisli

Neighborhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
