“HAven in Istanbul”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Over the past 4 years, I/we have stayed at thsi hotel some 8 times, on busienss and pleasure. Location is perfect,away from the hustle of the city yet 10 minutes on the tram from centre,or 30 minute stroll ,Blue Mosque & ferries, which stops outside.Local shops and returant within 100 yards offer great value on food and basic citems.

The hotel is clean,fresh and has a great pool/gym, huge plus for thsoe hot days during the summer. friendly staff,comfortable clean rooms.The weekly BBQ's during teh summer are excellent. For me,always the number 1 choice for Istanbul and alsways recommended to friends and familiy,none of whom ahev been disapointed

Room Tip: Ask for pool view, much quieter

I see this all over the world whether you're in the US or in India, Holiday inn is the place where I know I'll get the same good standards. So is the case here.
The area is quite good as well, there are many shops around and within a 10 minute walk there is a very nice mall.

It's walking distance to the shopping areas, pedestian streets as well as the Boutiques area, i.e. Prada, Tod's, McQueen, etc.

Breakfast is very good, dinner is average.

Spacious rooms and very clean which is important and rare when you travel to Istanbul!

Room Tip: Rooms with a street view are better; the other ones are very dark. Rooms on higher flkoors might hav...

Check in was simple as I reserved via the Priority Club website. Being a Platinum member did not have any benefit as I wasn't upgraded although the hotel was pretty much empty :S.

Room was a bit on the tight side but somehow have managed to have a bathroom which was almost half the size of the room. No complaints but just found it strange to allocate lots of space for the bathroom and not for the room itself. Rainfall shower was nice and spacious there was also a tub available. The weather was hot and humid but the A/C was very very good and literally froze myself. Beds are comfortable and very nice firm pillows which are hard to come by in hotels.

Good hotel for business trips as it is located centrally but a bit pricy for what you get.

Room Tip: High Floor on the side of the hotel away from the main street

Hello ,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at Holiday INN Sisli ,

Please accept my sincere apology for your recent experience in front office . We realize IHG Priority Club Platinum members are our most loyal customers and we failed to meet those expectations with you .

We have retrained our front office and reservation team at the hotel in order to be sure this does not occur in the future. Please contact me when you need reservations at the Holiday Inn Sisli in the future and I will personally handle your reservation. On a positive note that you appreciated the rainfall shower , tub , A/C , beds and firm pillows .

Again, my apologies on behalf of the staff and we look forward to having you as our guest on your next trip to Istanbul .

Best Regards ,

Picked this hotel because it was a flying trip and very near the office I was visiting. The room was fine and clean, breakfast was OK and one of the receptionists looked like Eva Mendes which is never a bad thing! Sisli is a business district and a bit far from the main sites of Istanbul. If you want to do tourism the metro is a bit of walk and traffic is quite bad in Istanbul but this hotel is relatively cheap. Would recommend here more for business than tourism. Tourism wise I'd stay at the Sirkeci Konak if you can and you should definitely visit the Agia Sophia (if can only choose one site), Topkapi Palace, Blue and Suleimanye (spelling?) mosques, Grand Bazaar, Egyptian Spice market and Basilica Cistern. The food is fab too. It's a great city!!!

Hello !

Thank you for taking time to share your positive experience with us . I am pleased that you enjoyed the hotel staff, cleanliness of your room and our breakfast .

The location of Holiday INN Sisli is in the midtown which is suitable for business travellers and also very convenient for shopping . For leisure travellers who want to visit the Old City, it is not in the Old city but also it is not far from the there . The public transportations are available around the hotel , for example the main metro station that is only a 5 minute-walk from our hotel or 100 meters for main bus station .

We look forward to having you return to Holiday Inn Sisli on your next visit.

Best Regards ,

the hotel is in very busy & trafficked location. All facilities, rooms, rest, breakfast, concierge service, taxi availability... etc.. let you feel that you are in a 4 not 5 stars hotel.
Management And reservation wise: SCANDAL: 1- We reached the hotel for check in and discovered that our reservation for 3 nights has been cancelled and they told us that the hotel is FULLY BOOKED!!!! we were obliged to call our agency many times to settle the case. This was the 1st time that happened something like that with us. 2- THEY GAVE US 2 DISTANT ROOMS, and our booking was adjacent or connecting. the amazing thing is that one of the rooms we had is in fact connected with another room given to someone else, and the noise from that room was terrible.
Very bad view and other buildings are very near, so you prefer keep the curtains closed.

Hello

We would like to thank you for taking the time to leave feedback on your recent stay with us. We value each and every guest’s opinion.

I am very sad to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your stay with us . As a Holiday Inn Sisli our goal is to go above and beyond for every guest so that they are happy with their experience.

I can understand your disappointment with the cancelled reservation incident . Reservation issues can be very difficult to handle if hotel is fully booked and I apologize it was not handled properly Once again I would like to apologise that you were made to feel uncomfortable and that you did not find our staff more friendly. This is definitely not the way staff are expected or encouraged to act in our hotel. I will certainly be investigating this issue within the front office teams as a matter of urgency I can assure you.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to chat as I would be happy to discuss any way that we could improve with our service levels for your next visit.

Me, my wife and our 10yrs child stayed for 4 days from July 15th to 18th. it was a very good experience and We didn't expect less.

Nice cofortable rooms, with free wi fi, Breakfast was Richy and more than enough in a lovely cozy atmosphere.The indoor swimming pool was a perfect to end a long day walks in the famous Osman bey street where the hotel is located.I loved the terrace bar in the 7th floor with candles all around,yet it is closing at 11 and few are visiting since its new as I was told.

Staff was helpful,polite and professional,special thank to Mr. Tugrul in reception,who didn't hesitate to offer any help and to Mr. Safa from Concierge who always paints that lovely smile on his face.
