Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KB from Riyadh Very Good Experience
Very good hotel to stay with Family. Hotel has very good suit rooms. Only issue i faced was the wireless internet issue and room cleaning. However if you have family with two to three kids i will recommend their suit room for any family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leddy Right next to metro stop
Great location for easy access to vent and airport.
Brilliant facilities - restaurant, bar, pool, spa eyc
Shame that the room doesn't have enough plug sockets (a fault in all Holiday Inns it seems).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by paul569 Good location and relaxing stayy
I stayed at Holiday Inn Istanbul City in July, 2014 for 7 nights.
Hotel is in an Ideal location for visiting all the sights that Istanbul has to offer. Tours can be booked through the hotel. Tram stop right outside hotel about 10/15 minutes to the centre of Old Istanbul and Sultanahmet square, 20/25 minutes to airport with one transfer stop which is easy to negotiate. I would advise travellers to purchase a travel card which can be used on the Metro, Trams, Buses and Ferries, can be obtained from news stand outside the hotel adjacent to crossing onto tram stop.
Made to feel welcomed and all staff were warm and friendly, platinum statue recognised at check in and on departure, even offered a farewell coffee on the hotel.
Allocated a suite on the top floor at the end of the passage which was spacious and had two bedrooms, which I think must have been an upgrade for platinum status. It was clean and comfortable but on occasions you could hear children screaming during the night which I believe came from the properties next to the hotel.
We were on a bed and breakfast rate and found the breakfast had a good variety of both hot and cold food + Turkish delight! The restaurant manager always came across to say good morning and offered to order and bring us omelettes. We did not use the other restaurant within the hotel, so I can't comment on that restaurant. There are a few restaurants within a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel which were reasonable but found none which sold alcohol drinks. We used them a couple of times but mainly used the restaurants in Old Istanbul which had great views from their roof top terraces.
There is a small swimming pool which is ideal to relax by after a day of sightseeing to cool down. On occasions it looks like there are no sun beds but the pool staff can soon magic some up. Pool towels obtained from the Fitness/spa reception. Staffs are on hand to order refreshments and on most days came around with a plate of nibbles to try.
