I have just spent 4 nights on business in Istanbul. The InterContinental is sited in a great location close to Taksim Square offering fantastic views of Istanbul's skyline and way out across the
Bosphorus from the rooftop's very popular City Lights Restaurant & Bar, as well as from the fine dining Safran restaurant. I also enjoyed spectacular views of the Bosphorus from the room I had allocated. Due to the clever design of the hotel, I understand that the vast majority of guest rooms have Bosphoros views
The guestroom, including the bathroom, provided high levels of comfort and was well equipped; the Housekeeping team did a fine job keeping the room spotless and well serviced.
The quality and variety of the breakfast buffet was very good, as were the Canapes served in the Club InterContinental Lounge. As ever, the lounge was staffed by a very professional, friendly and attentive team.
Despite all the calories I enjoyed consuming in the rooftop restaurants, I unfortunately failed to find time to visit the very impressive and expansive Spa and Fitness centre. Having had a quick walk through the facilities, I strongly recommend that future guests set some time aside for the spa and the wide range of treatments.
All in all, a great hotel clearly staffed by well trained and motivated employees determined to set a high standard and maintain high levels of guest experience.
Many thanks to One & All for a very comfortable, enjoyable and memorable stay; I am very much looking forward to returning early next year to spend more time with you in Istanbul. [Less]
