Impeccably managed brand new hotel facing the magical Old City and the mesmerizingly beautiful Bosphorus waterway. Situated virtually on the edge of it! Yet so subtle and convenient both as a business and leisure hotel. Sunrise-sundance waltzing in front of your eyes peaking onto the deep azure blue Marmara Sea watching the 'fish-jump-in' right smack in the middle of a city of 18 million habitants! Heaven on earth. Both me and my spouse loved every minute of staying here. As a HHonors Platinum member, we have stayed over many Hilton premises but must admit that this particular one is the best overall in general terms. Spotlessly and tastefully furnished rooms, ohhh-so comfortable beds, handsomely set out bathrooms, and again, The VIEW! My-ohh-my, it simply does not get any better than this in any place on earth especially in a major bustling city! Although you are on the Anatolian side (i.e.Asia), the city is connected by means of bridges, ferry and passenger boats etc. and you wisk away to the European side within minutes which is regarded as the 'business hub". The hotel is centrally located in borough of Kadikoy, which is a beautiful old town embedded in Istanbul, and is surrounded by numerous fine eateries especially exquisite fish restaurants and gadzillions of things to do in nearby surroundings. Hotel's staff is utmost attentive, smiling and willing to serve. The General Manager Mustafa Cevizci is always in attendance if you were to need to contact him for any reason just as we did. Within the premises there is a "good-as-it-gets in a Hilton Hotel" fine restaurant with quite satisfactory menu but unfortunately the "independently run" Bar at the Roof (360) simply does not belong to this otherwise class establishment. That specific bar's clientele is rowdy plus their prices were exorbitant. On an other plus side though, hotel's spa is extremely pro-efficient, and both indoor and outdoor pools are maintained well. Parking is free. What is lacking? The lobby definitely needs to re-wamp as it is way too bland. Boring, colorless as it gets. Plain Jane! In closing, this will be our hotel to stay on the 'other side of the Bosphorus' whenever we visit Istanbul.
