“Excllent Location, Clean 5 Start Hotel "Recommended"”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I have stayed in this hotel twice: once in January 2012 (which was in winter) and July 2012 (which was in summer) for business trip. The location is very good near Taksim Street and there are metro and bus stations nearby. I found the hotel very clean, bed is confortable and the room is big & nice decorated. The breakfast is excellent with many verity items. The facilities including the swimming pool (in summer) were wonderful. The staffs are speaking English very well and providing full support and tourism guidance. The price is summer is quite high because of hot season. I totally recommend this Hotel.

The foods in Turkey in general are very delicious specially all type of Kababs and Shawarma, and you will find many restaurants near Taksim Street. There are so many attestations in Istanbul such as Sultan Ahmet area (Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmet Mossque, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazar, Dolmabahçe Palace, Bosphorus Trip by boat, Princes Islands, Ortakoy. Cevahir Mall (by metro line is better), Eyüp-Pierre Funicular (the view of Golden Horn is amzing), etc.

Moreover, Bursa is also wonderful city to visit which will take almost one day trip.
There is Havas airport-bus to both airports (Atatürk & Sabiha), every 30 mintues in good price compared to Taxi.

Smithsonian Journeys offered a "Voyages to Antiquity" cruise of the Mediterranean on the small cruise ship Aegean Odyssey (which we LOVED!!!) and the first 2 nights of the tour package were booked into this hotel; we could not have been happier. The hotel room was large, clean, and quiet, and the breakfast was truly exceptional in every possible respect. Fresh omelettes or any style of eggs made to order, wonderful choices of fruits, pastries, meats, etc. filled several serving tables for the buffet, and always the most courteous staff of truly bi-lingual professionals. The entire stay was absolutly a complete joy. Hotel public spaces were welcoming and very nicely done; everything was so very clean and attractive.

This hotel is not located in old Istanbul which was, to us, an added bonus. This newer part of town (as opposed to Old Town) is more European in its feel; it has more of a village atmosphere. A very short walk takes you to Taksim Square and to all the little streets that are adjacent to the Square which have an amazing array of restaurants and shops. This location has fewer Mosques and you do not hear the "call to prayer" broadcasts (5 times a day) as much as you do in the older part of town. These calls start about 6 a.m. or so.

This location is also conveniently located fairly near the port and any stay in Istanbul is not complete without a cruise of the Bosphorus. Daily excursions of a couple of hours by ferry boat are easy to book. Any other day trips to the archeological and historic sites can be arranged and, considering the crazy traffic here in Istanbul, it is good to let someone else have that headache.

The neighborhoods were pedestrian and tourist friendly and we never once felt unwelcome or concerned for our safety. Istanbul is such a special city, we will be back and will certainly stay at this fine property again.

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

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
