I was concerned by some of the reviews that the Hotel was aging but I did not find that at all. The Hotel looked clean and I liked the decor. I was able to use the 15th floor lounge and found my room to be excellent. My wife and I were vacationing with two other couples and were treated with excellent service. I found the responsiveness of the staff wonderful and thought that they responded to all of my requests. The location is not ideal for vacationing but we would take a short taxi ride to Kaptos Tramway station and then a quick 10 minute ride to the sites. This is easy and was not an issue. We used the indoor pool and work out facilities as well as the steam room and Sauna. I thought the views from the top floor were beautiful and that the Conrad lived up to its reputation. I also appreciated that I was asked several times how we were doing and if the staff could do more for us. We will definitely come back to Istanbul and we will stay here.

Wonderful views of Istanbul from the bar. Great breakfast buffet, a lot to choose from. Rooms are quiet, large and fully stocked. The bathroom was also large. Everything you need. The hotel is located in a perfect are - not far from transportation and to shopping, etc. Would stay here again. Only negative, the high cost of getting wireless internet access (can get it for free in many other Turkish hotels)

Stayed for three nights in an executive room with a Bosphore bridge view. Just wonderful view as the hotel is located on a hill that gives it an extra good view.

I agree with previous writers that this hotel not is as good as Conrad in for e g Singapore but it is still a very good and competitive choice for a stay in Istanbul.
The staff is really helpful and serves you in a very nice and polite way. The beverages in the executive lounge ranges from softdrinks to local wine and two sorts of spirits. A small selection of cakes is the high tea and a selection of warm and cold finger food is the evening choice. The view is of course stunning from the executive floor as well as from the bar on the 14th floor. Nice with two breakfasts options for executive floor: continental on floor 15th and a wider selection but still in quiet and peaceful enviroment on floor 14th. Tried the Monet restaurant on the first floor as well in-room dining. Both flawless. Not to mention the cleaning that was so carefully conducted too!

Overall a very nice stay.
One little thought though: The concierge warned us for local taxis outside the Grand Bazaar. However although it was the same traffic flow in both directions the way home was 12tl cheaper than to the market with the hotels own taxi company......

Room Tip: It is worth to pay extra for the Bosphorus view. Stunning!

We stayed at the Conrad Istanbul for three nights on the way home from Dubai. While the hotel was nice, I felt it did not live up to the Conrad brand. The rooms were showing their age and the level of service was OK. I've stayed in Conrad's in Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Delhi, and this one certainly needs work.

The hotel has seen better ages, but service is good, rooms are clean, and most have really good views of the Bosphorous. Seasons bar at level 14 has an absolutely fantastic view of Istanbul. On the downside, Hotel needs renovation in its rooms and public areas, they really look old, but again, service, views and location are solid good. A good choice for business, not so good for vacations.

Room Tip: ask for a room with view of the Sea/strait.

A strangely built hotel - it pretends to be some 19th century classic but it really a handful of years old. Having said that the service is spot on, many breakfast options are available and the rooms are super comfortable.

For tourists I wouldn't recommend, it isn't in the greatest area for sightseeing, but it does the job for business travellers based nearby.
