I stayed during the pandemic and during medical procedure from the Uk. the hotel staff including restaurant, front desk and cleaning staff were very attentive, caring, resolved any queries. I needed a phone charger as my phone charger broke and the front staff got me one at 10 pm in the eve. I also needed to switch rooms and it was done with a smile. Very impressed with Cagl a dinc she called me several times to check if I needed anything. I really recommend this hotel and will definitely stay when I visit Turkey Istanbul again! Very delicious breakfast too!

My experience was amazing second time staying here and it feels like Home.
The rooms are Huge and Spacious with spectacular views if you get the corner rooms king suite.

The location is great walking distance from the famous street Istiklal street all the restaurants and shops are there. it also takes you all the way to Galata Tower.

The Best part is the GYM and the Spa so nice :) I worked out every day because the gym was fully equipped and super nice.

From Guest relations( Cagla Dinc)helping with booking our trip to cappadocia... to Concierge (Ozan Oruc)helping us get an amazing private boat ride tour and all the breakfast staff (Ali Bekci) (Cagla) were all very accommodating and helpful.

Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality.

The stay at the Elysium Takism was an accommodating stay. They provided on request any extras required. Cagla was a lovely receptionist who even extended our check out. The cleaners were amazing and always asked if anything at all was needed. Staff in general provided a lovely service. The hotel itself looks beautiful, very picture worthy.

We stayed at this hotel 11 years ago, in Nov 2011 ane it was great. After a few trips to Istanbul, we decided to stay here again and oh what a disappointment. I don't think the hotel facilities have been touched since 2011 in terms of renovation, repaint or even maintenance. The towel hanger was falling apart, the door knob was very loose it was a mission to unlock the door. We spent 3 days BEGGING for extra towels, we had 2 bath towels and 1 hand towel for FOUR people staying in the oing suite duplex. 3 nights and we ended up with 1 breakfast attempt and then decided to just walk and have a proper breakfast elsewhere. Breakfast was terrible, fruit salad was filled with very artificial sugar syrup, and the fact that coffee is chargeable is just a whole other story. Our non-smoking room smelled like someone had literally just smoked in it. The split unit ACs are VERY loud. We definitely should've listened to the poor reviews on booking.com! I have written some amazing reviews on other hotels, most recently a resort in Antalya so not a negative person who wants to point out the negative side of things.

Spend your money somewhere else.

This hotel is one the worst hotel of all.
The service is sooooo weak and terrible.we asked for paper glass and they said it costs 20 TL!!!!
Breakfast's items charge so late that you give up eating.
Hotel is so crowded that I don't recommend it to families.
They didn't act politely the times we arrived and although we booked our rooms,they asked us to stayed in -1 floor of the hotel.
Don't expect what you see in pictures, they are their suites.
I have been stayed in so many hotels of Istanbul such as all Hilton's but this one is of that bad kinds of Istanbul's hotels.

My trip to Turkey was perfect, everyone was really helpful at the hotel from when I checked in to when I left. Even at the restaurant at the hotel the waiter Kayra was excellent when explaining the menu to me and showing me what I wanted to eat and the food was quick and no rushing. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Even while in covid everyone has kept there distance and had their face mask on all times from the airport to the hotel and back

Do not trust them, they dont care about customers and are very unfriendly on the phone. I Booked a room 5 days before my travel to istanbul and on the day of the travel they cancel my order, and lied to me that my credit card was not authorized, my creditcard company sayd everything was fine. We tried to book again with my credit card during my flight on the last minute with much higher prices and we found out that all the rooms were overbooked and full.

We had 8 passengers in this hotel for 3 nights in February 2020. We reserved 4 standard rooms. When our guest checked in to the hotel, the receptionist says that " our standard rooms are in another building for 4 floors beside the hotel and surprised us. So the hotel gave rooms on the grand floor. We tried to change their room into the top of the building but the hotel didn't have rooms. Finally, our guest was unhappy.

There are not enough words to describe or satisfying off or journey. The whole staff was very helpful and friendly. The manager was very attentive and offered an upgrade after a technical problem in the room. My partner got even a cake for her birthday. We will definitely stay again in this hotel. The only negative thing that I could find is the name that I keep forget 😆
Het is met voorsprong 1 van de betere hotels.
Heel professioneel en vriendelijk personeel dat altijd klaar staat om de gasten van dienst te zijn.
Nadat er een technisch probleem in de kamer was kregen we onmiddellijk een upgrade. De manager was heel attent vol en zorgde voor een super lekkere verjaardagstaart voor mijn jarige partner.
Het ontbijt was ook uitgebreid en verzorgd.
Wij komen zeker terug in dit hotel.
