I stayed in this hotel several days in early October. Location of the hotel is great, next to Taxim. Rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The food is delicious, with a large number of different types of cakes that you must try. The staff is friendly, attentive but unobtrusive.Hotel garden and terrace with a beautiful view, a very nice place to have a cup of coffe.The hotel where I willl stay again.

First I have to be honest and state that when (note: not if) we return to Istanbul I would stay in the old center because of its proximity to the various mosques and palaces. HOWEVER, our stay at the Intercontinental Ceylan was perfect. The rooms are large, beautifully appointed with a great mattress and linens, and are immaculate. The ceiling to floor window overlooking the Bosporus is what makes for great memories. . The buffet breakfast was exceptional with the option of ordering eggs as you like them from the kitchen. And the staff, from check-in to concierge to doormen, all attentive. We did enjoy touring Taksim Square and the pedestrian street that is within easy walking distance to the hotel. But the hotel itself is an oasis. After a busy day of touring, the inviting lobby lounge with bar and or food service is a welcomed respite. Not sure how anyone could rate this stay as nothing special… for us it was that and more.

We stayed one week in Istanbul : four nights in a backpacker's type hotel and 3 nights at Intercontinental Ceylan. The huge difference of price was really not worth it (6 times). Though it is easy to go in and out from the airport (direct bus), it is not conveniently situated for tourists' visits : far by foot and not on a direct line of tram. There are many much better situated hotels. Wifi has to be paid for. Rooms are not so big and ensuite bathrooms deserves better finitions for an hotel of this kind. Disturbed even with the "do not disturbed" sign. Kind concierges with appropriate advices. Nice swimming pool and gym. If you like old fashioned expensive hotels, it is the one you are looking for - otherwise no doubt you should go somewhere else and will find better for that type of price.

This hotel is in a very central location next to Taxim square but at rush times it is very difficult to reach by a taxi and it can be expensiveThe alternative is you take a shuttle from the airport it takes you next to the hotel and it is a lot cheaper 10Euro only it runs every half an hour. I used it on my way back to the airport
You get half an hour free inernet evrey day and I think it ahould be free

Clean, spacious, great service, good location with plenty of small restaurants just a half a block away. The view from the lounge on the top floor is breathtaking, but also expect breathtaking prices for drinks (my colleague's beer was nearly $15) Noise was a problem with disco music until wee hours of the morning. Too westernized with hardly a trace of the real Turkey. .
