Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prateek1385 Comfort and convinience
I recently stayed in the Holiday Inn near Topkapi for roughly 2 weeks and honestly it was one of the best decisions I made.
Location: The bulk of tourist attractions start ahead of Grand Bazaar going all the way till the Galata tower.Holiday Inn is situated right next to the tram line which takes you straight to these areas. Holiday Inn might be considered a bit "off" from the core areas of tourism but this suits me just fine as it gives me a chance to "walk the path less trodden" :)
Rooms/amenities: The rooms are spacious, neat and comfortable. Room service is quick and prompt and the only issue I faced was that the room temperatures cannot be individually controlled and they kept the temperature at a 28 C which made it really uncomfortable after an hr or so.
Food: The breakfast buffet is wonderful, both in spread and quality. I only ordered room service once though that was a little bit of a let down. I had ordered a seA food soup and it was pretty bland and really not worth the 20 odd TL I had to pay.
Hospitality: The staff is friendly, very helpful and very courteous. Full marks to them on that.
Overall: I'd definitly recommend this hotel as an option to stay, its worth the money (or points you spend ;) and ideally suited for a hop skip and a jump anywhere in the city.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 General Service Hotel
The reception staff were a mix of people willing to help those who will not at all.
Although I am a Priority Rewards Club Member I only got some of what I expected from one member of the staff while others had no clue.
The food was repetitive and eventually boring, although Turkey is absolutely brimming with food varieties, which should have made it much more easier to be creative.
One out 3 female staff where capable while frowns and bored appearance was the theme.
The hotel location is very good and could be the best with some serious improvements.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shan29 Usual good service
I stayed for 3 nights in mid Dec. In fact this was my second stay at this property in the last 3 weeks and the service was good as usual. The location is v comfortable with the tram station opposite to the hotel door and it can take us to city centre in 10-15 mins max. I was given a nice pool facing room and enjoyed the stay. Only suggestion--please refill a water bottle everyday while doing room service--it costs less than 1 Turkish lira but gives lot of convenience to the guest who returns in the evening.
