“One of the best in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Excellent view, hospitalityand confort. We stayed at wedding day and it was amasing. One of the best in Istanbul.
They sent a bottle of Champagne as a gift. Rooms are ok. We choose a deluxe suit room. 2 bathroom, huge living room, bedroom. And again: best Bosphorus view in Istanbul.

Stayed August 2012, traveled on business

After reading other reviews about the location of the Conrad I wondered if I had regretted booking here but I had no regrets at all.

We arrived at the hotel and approached the check in desk in the lobby. Upon noticing my Hilton Hhonors status I was asked to go straight to the check in desk on the executive 15th floor. When I arrived there the lobby check in man obviously notified them as I was expected which I thought was a nice touch. I was upgraded to a room on the executive floor which also gave access to the Executive Lounge. The room had a city view, was very clean and nicely furnished.

The Executive Lounge I found was busy at certain times but only once did we have to hang around for a seat. The breakfast here had limited offerings but I have to say suited me fine. I know I had the option of going downstairs to the main restaurant which had more choice but the views from the lounge over Istanbul are excellent and worth it for that alone. We also made use of the lounge at other times of the day and felt the food and drink offerings were very good.

We ate twice in Meze restaurant. Both times the food was of a very high standard and I felt very reasonably priced for a city centre hotel. We were disappointed that the Monet restaurant was closed each evening we were there as it would have been nice to have sampled that as well. The Monet Patisserie was very nice and again I can't fault the food or coffee which was of a high standard.

The spa, gym and pool were also good and were never busy meaning you could always do what you went to do whether that was swim, gym or relax in the steam room!

We arranged a cruise of Istanbul through the Concierge (she was excellent by the way!). The tour company Hilton use I was very impressed by. They were very professional compared to some tour companies I have used in the past. Even although the hotel promotes the tours I felt they were very reasonably priced. In other hotels I have found that their own promoted tours are vastly inflated, but not here.

The location of the hotel didn't pose too much of a problem to me. It is very conveniently located for the ferries to the Asian side. We didn't use taxis but walked most of the time and this wasn't really too much of an issue and its only really 25 minutes to Taksim Square but walking does enable you to see a lot more I feel.

Without exception all the staff I spoke to or interacted with in the hotel were extremely friendly and welcoming. I would certainly stay here again if I'm ever in Istanbul again.

We are two women On a first tourist trip to istanbul. We felt very safe walking to and from this location. absolutely no problems.

Excellent hotel and renovations not really an issue. Good location as offered opportunity to either walk to tourist bit Sultanahmet (nice walk. about half an hour walk along the Bosphorus) or get a ferry or tram. Although very close to a suburb offering plenty of shops, bars, places to eat. On arrival I asked for an re furnished room and got a free upgrade to a room on tenth floor with Bosphorus view. Staff very helpful and even though this is geared towards business people we were treated no differently by staff on hotel or on summit bar regardless of how we were dressed. Would definitely stay here again.

After 3weeks around Turkey with old, cheap, small hotels I took this hotel for 2 nights before back home. I'm not sure with my feelings or was it the hotel that made me happy? Rooms were clean and location was fantastic for me. Slept almost 2full days after 3 tired weeks around so the beds were like heaven.

Clean, comfortable, spacious room with amenities. Convenient location. Very good breakfast experience. Note: Reception personnel never asks for club memberships (frequent flyer miles, HHonors, etc.) You do not remember to mention them, c'est la vie.

I chose this hotel because of a great rate offered by the hotel but i think the reason was that there is a massive renovation underway at the hotel. This means that during the day, it is very loud and noisy - jackhammering etc all around, so not really a place you can work from during the day, unless they have rooms that are distant from the noise. On the other hand, if you get a view w/ nice views on a high floor and don't need to be in your room during the day, it's a wonderful place to stay, with wonderful service. the executive package upgrade is worthwhile covering internet, breakfast (which is great) and access to the lounge where you can have meetings etc. the fitness center is also lovely. one thing to keep in mind is that this is a hotel where you must take a taxi to go anywhere. you can't just walk out of your room and walk to a restaurant etc. the service is also very good.

I had a 4 day business trip to the beautiful city of Istanbul. On check in the staff suggested we upgrade to the executive floor - which was a good move - breakfast, internet and happy hour more than covered the extra cost. Rooms were nice and as with many hotels, the rooms are overheated during winter - however unlike many hotels I have stayed in, you could open windows and coolthe room down quickly. The executive lounge was on the top floor with the most amazing views along the Bosphoros - a great out door patio that would be buzzing in summer!

Room Tip: all good, take the executive package!
