Hubby and I just got back from our Europe trip. Istanbul was the first stop. This hotel is very nice and has wonderful water views. We are diamond members so were upgraded to a high floor water view room. Be sure to ask for rooms on the left side of the hotel facing the water because otherwise there is going to be a big Ritz Carlton building in your view. The gym is really nice...one of the biggest I have seen at a Hilton without being owned by an outside company. There is a separate elevator for the executive floors...have never seen that in European Hiltons before either. The Exec lounge is spacious and serves food, drinks, and liquor all day long. Can take drinks out of the lounge also which is nice. There are 4 computer desks in the lounge and are comfortable. This Hilton location is much better better than the other one and seems nicer. Have to take taxis almost everywhere but are convenient. Can walk to Taksim Square in about 10 minutes if want to take the underground somewhere. Can have breakfast in the the Exec Lounge or downstairs in the restaurant but the Exec Lounge was good enough with hot/cold selections. Restaurant recommendations are Sunset Grille and 360 Istanbul. Sunset is kind of far but the view and food are worth it. If want some good locations for lunch/dinner closer to the hotel, go to Hardal or Beymen Brasserie in Nisantasi. Nisantasi is the nicer part of Istanbul and is cute and chic. Enjoy!!!!

Room Tip: Get a water view room on a high floor on the left side of the building.

This is an old property and it shows.I was supposed to be on the executive floor(9th) I prepaid for the executive level, they gave me a 3rd floor suite that was huge but old and I used the lounge.The lounge is not bad, they seem to be careful how much food is placed and the choices were just ok.The hotel is in a good location walking distance to Takseem square and Isteklal street (which is why I picked this property) but the rooms must be renovated especially the bathrooms.I really disliked their bathroom products(and the bathroom!! done in the 50s ) the towels feel old and overused .The bar on the first floor( renovated) is quite nice.I will not stay here again better to stay in Ciragan palace and use a car .

I can say just one thing ,that I REALLY enjoyed in Istanbul and Hilton Hotel.
But I recommend you to avoid having your meals in A-plus restaurant which is located near the hotel. They charged us 325 TL just for 1 main course and 1 starter.

We travelled with our young children and my husband's parents and having rooms on the Exec Floor offered us an ideal way to meet up, relax, re-fuel and visit. The lounge amenities were excellent as was the service. Nice indoor pool and gym and the Terrace and Chinese restaurants were both very good.

Taxis into the old part of town were easy to get. Location overlooking the bosphorous was lovely, and within walking distance of the funicular/Taksim and dolmabahçe palace was very handy.

Decor a bit dated: no contemporary wow factor.

Room Tip: sea facing exec floor / lounge level.
