Stayed here upon our return from Cappodocia. We had stayed at the Grand Hyatt, Istanbul a week earlier; so a comparison becomes unavoidable.
For a start, the room here was much smaller. We had been warned of the noise but even when occupying a side room, the noise from the street and especially the tram can become annoying. The room was warm and as we could not adjust the room temperature, unfortunately we had to have the windows opened and this makes the noise more unpleasant.
The room was not made up professionally each morning; we had to ask for clean towels and water and one day it took 3 phone calls and a few hours before we got service. The beds could have been more comfortable and the pillows improved.
The staff at the breakfast lounge however was good and attentive. Special thanks must be given to the lady manager who was on duty for the three mornings we were there.
This will be a good hotel to stay for visits to the Grand Bazaar , the Blue Mosque and surroundings but for night life and dining a hotel over the other side of the water will be better.
Happy to hear that xavierkuai was upgraded as a H HonoursGold. I was told that it was not the hotel policy to do so.
Booked this hotel under the Hilton Honours Best Rate Guarantee only to find out that the rate was better on Expedia. Contacted H Honours but was stonewalled. Does anyone else has the same experience?
