Overall a very good hotel. Near to the city center. Good for business meetings but doesn't have a nice night life. The main restaurant is good. But the bartenders don't know how to make cocktails which are expensive . Low Value for money .

I expected for a multinational chain like intercontinental to be more customer oriented but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be their priority. We had a large group of delegates booked in for a business tour and had provided a comprehensive list of our preference of smoking and non smoking rooms well in advance we arrived to find that the list...

Lovely hotel, large rooms, with sitting area, and bathroom with all amenities. Very good selection for breakfast, and will cook eggs, omelet to order. Very attentive staff. However, beware if you can t afford 50 euro for a glass of wine,don't go to bar on top floor. Our room had a lovely view over the Bosphorus, ask when booking.

Hotel is at a good location 10 minutes walking distance from Taksim square. Breakfast was just awesome and very enjoyable with a large selection to choose from. Room was good but could do a little touch up. Executive lounge offers limited food selection so was okay but have had better. Drinks have a choice to choose from.

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.
