For a large convention style hotel, this was excellent. We usually stay in smaller, boutique hotels for their informal style and sense of the "cozy". This Hyatt had those qualities. Our room with a view of the Bosporus was fantastic. The breakfasts were some of the best we have ever had; an abundant selection of morning treats geared to Western tastes. The staff was more than accommodating and very service oriented. A excellent choice while in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Bosporus.

We stayed here twice during our recent trip to Turkey. First time we had a pool view Which was great and relaxing. We returned back to Istanbul after touring the entire country and this time we were lucky to get the Bhosporus view room which was just awesome. The hotel is just a 10min walk from the Havas airport bus. It might be a bit of a struggle walking through the narrow roads esp with luggages but no choice since taxis usually don't come for such a short distance. We once arrived from ataturk and once from Sabia Gocken. We found the walk manageable with 4 luggage pieces. On return back to Ataturk, most of the taxis refused to drop us to the Havas bus pickup place because of the short distance hence we ended up taking a cab to Ataturk which was around 50 TL. We dint use much of the facilities here due to lack of time but the spa looked spacious and beautiful.

Room Tip: Ask for Bosporus view, it's stunning ESP during night

Best hotel we have ever stayed in! Clean, comfortable, with excellent facilities, helpful staff that spoke very good English and the most impressive choice of breakfast that I have ever seen. Good location as well, would definitely recommend.

My room quality was nice, specious room with everything needed inside (expect an ironboard + iron).

The Hotel style as well is modern and pleasant.

Breakfast was particularly good, a fact which is not for granted in Istanbul, mainly due to a natural shift towards the more "eastern" style stuff.

All services provided were implecable

It is recommended

This is a beautiful hotel with modern and well appointed rooms. The bathrooms are gorgeous. All of the amenities that you can expect from a five star hotel are there. The pool area is especially impressive, but the pool isn't heated and was too chilly to swim even during the heat of the summer day. The lobby and spa area are very pretty. The AC in our room never quite worked until the last day when we had the staff address the problem. Beds are very comfortable, elevators fast, rooms are very clean. In a good location if you are doing business in the modern part of the city, but a bit of a trek to get to the old town or Galeta district.

The sense you get in chain hotels is that no mater where you are, they are more or less the same (which would be a pity at a place like Istanbul). Not in this Hyatt. You may indeed get all the basics plus amenities plus services, but you still get a flavour of this unique metropolis. The location is great, as it is right in the centre and at the same time just slightly off the main track. For those times that you may not be up to exploration and adventure, but want a comfortable stay and a good night's sleep (as well as a great massage without heading all the way to the hamam)

We got a fantastic deal....less than half of other similar hotels in the area & consequently wondered if the hotel may be a little tired or dated.
FAR FROM IT! Think the hoel pictures make it look a bit 80s because it is mostly beige marble, but in reality it looks graet!
Superior Room had bath with shutters that opened to enable you to watch tv or listen to music!
Separate drench-Style shower & a really comfy bed.
Pool area is amazing. Attendants put out your towels, bring umbrellas close if it's too hot, and offere complimentary chilled bottled water, slices of melon on ice & cool towels.
Poolside Grill Staff excellent. Pizza & salads excellent, if a bit pricey.
Gym & Spa excellent and mostly quiet.
Breakfast buffet amazing, but we took Room only deal as knew Istanbul was such a late city that we may not wish to get up for it. Managed only 1 of the 3 days!
Ideal location..... easy walk to Taksim & Istiklal Cd (Main shopping Street). 10 mins to the amazing Dolmabahce Palace down the hill.
Thoroughly reccommend this hotel 10 out of 10 in all areas!
Concierge SO helpful, and Reception arranged an early check-in and late complimentary check out (Due to Flight times) Though perhaps offered as we did offer to pay!
CANNOT fault them. Go Stay!!

Room Tip: Pay for Deluxe or Superior room. Trivago had lots of offers
