Park Hyatt Istanbul - Macka Palas
Ranked #36 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 27, 2011

This hotel is great in all respects: location (close to Istanbul's hip hang-out area), design, quality and service.
You feel welcomed there - the staff makes serious efforts to make sure your stay is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. And what's important, it doesn't come out as superficial, it feels very genuine.
The attention to detail is truly amazing. You see it in everything from the overall room design to the little things like complimentary fruits and sweets, nice toiletries, linen laundry bags instead of traditional plastic ones.
I had a single room and it was huge with a large bed, full-size desk and a separate hygene area (toilet, sink, shower, bathtub). Everything is designed in a beautiful modern style with top-quality furnishings and fixtures.
I haven't tried hotel's restaurant but breakfast was excellent.
In the summer, they will have a roof-top terrace with a bar and a lounge area - very hip and cool.
Overall, if you're considering a place away from the traditional tourist areas, I 'd highly recommend this Park Hyatt

This place was absolutely stunning - one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The rooms were a perfect mixture of antique charm and modern style, and were absolutely huge. I just loved every bit of staying here. The breakfasts were so delicious and the staff were so professional, friendly and efficient. The charming concierge was adorable and gave us the best tips and recommendations - his help really made our trip a successful. I couldn't praise this place more highly. If you have the opportunity, go!

Great hotel. Cool, stylish with great friendly service. Fantastic location in heart of Nisantasi, the city's boho quarter. Rooms excellent with great music players to chill out, bathrooms to relax, and bar for quiet meetings. Beautiful decor ever step of the way. Fabulous breakfasts. And just really nice people with natural friendly service. Wifi is still expensive, especially if you have multi devices, but nothing is quite perfect (yet)!

My husband and I stayed here with two of our friends in two separate king spa rooms for three days. The room is every bit as magnificent as they sound -- we used the sauna every day (sometimes even twice a day), and it was especially relaxing after long-day romps around the city.

One of the best things about the hotel is the breakfast! The buffet was a smorgasbord of offerings that included fresh and dried fruits, cold cuts, olives, fresh-baked pastries, cheeses, honeys, and yogurts. On top of that, we were offered a hot entree that ranged from pancakes to tasty omelets. Even if you don't have breakfast here, stop in for the great coffee - probably one of the best cups of coffee we've had anywhere.

Another great thing about the hotel is Ali who worked the front desk. He's very knowledge and well-traveled, yet very down to earth and approachable. He gave us a tour of our room upon arrival, occasionally checked in on us, and spent an hour telling us about all the different parts of Turkey before we headed off. Ali was great and made our stay stand-out! (Also, the concierge was most helpful and patient, but I can't remember her name.)

The downside is that the Park Hyatt is fairly far from the main sites. We walked once from the Blue Mosque back, and being fit, late 20-something folks, it was still quite a trek. The upside is that you'll get to see a different part of town. The immediate area is pretty swanky with lots of international retail and little restaurants (some of which are terrible tourist traps.) The best restaurant we ate at while in Turkey was Kosebasi, which is directly across the street from the hotel. It's a local chain, but the food was just out of this world and the atmosphere was jovial and light. Highly recommended!

We stayed for 4 nights at the Witt Suites and then moved to Park Hyatt to experience another area of Istanbul. This hotel was about 3 times more expensive than the Witt and not nearly so lovely or comfortable. I booked a room with a special Turkish bath, which turned out to be an in room sauna (not really very useful or pleasant) with a standard bath and small marble basin and foot stool with a remote control for ?light therapy which was different colored light emanating from one light. Ridiculously expensive breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the room was large. The view from the room was over a fairly run down apartment building and it's carpark and a small pool and closed terrace area which had not been cleaned in some time. The staff were pleasant. The gym was good. The room service was average. Wifi was also very expensive and sporadic.

Stayed for three nights in a spa king room. The room was excellent particularly having the steam room and Hannah available. Service was equally excellent. However the cost of food and the quality of the meals we had, left a lot to be desired, which was mirrored across the whole city. We ate in Prime and found the steaks contained large amounts of gristle and the mashed potato resembled custard as it was so runny. Not to much to complain about really but the bill with one bottle of cheaper Turkish wine, two average starters and two steaks came to £170! The same was encountered at Mikla although the food was better there for the same price.
