The only problem we had with the hotel is we could not use tyhe shower as the water flowed out from under the glass door and went all over the floor. My friend also stayed at the same time and experienced the same issue with his shower.
I would also have wanted to know that there was construction planned during the time of our visit. there was jack hammering occurring during the afternoon so close to the lobby that one wouldnt want to sit there during those periods,.
Nonetheless, we had a great time, people were great, concierge was very helpful so we would definitely go back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anver Excellent all round service
i thoroughly enjoyed my short stay at the Istanbul Intercontinental. The staff were very friendly and efficient and showed considerable flexibility in making me feel comfortable and honoured.
I experienced none of the usual hassle you tend to get checking in and checking out and the promptness of the hotel staff in responding to telephone queries or providing services was very impressive.
The room was a good size, the desk provided sufficient working space, electrical connections were conveniently located and the light switches were logical and comprehensible.
I was given complimentary entry to the lounge which was very welcome.
I wish I could have stayed longer and tried out the swimming pool, the spa and the gym.
Excellent all rtound.

Hotel lobby large lovely elegant rooms small for American standard , needs upgrade , I would say carpet , decor over 10 years old however super clean . For it to maintain a Hotel with a five star rating the rooms must be brought into the 21st century . As is it is a four star hotel do to the age of the unremodled rooms . The hotel staff is superb having gone out of their way in every which way to accommodate all of my needs .

Staying at the Intercontintal is good for the new Istanbul. Wonderful views of the Bosporus and Sea of Marmara. Right on Taksim Square and close to the shops and pedestrian walk.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Henrik Taksim Very friendly staff but to costly considering what was provided.
Intercontinental in Istanbul is well located, very friendly/polite/professional staff, (reception, spa, cleaning, baggage, thank you), very nice spa and training facility.
The room, (Club) was somewhat old and the WiFi far to slow, (for being a business hotel in a metropolitan city you expect internet to work flawlessly).
Far too expensive considering what is usually available in this price range.

This was my first stay at an Intercontinental and it exceeded my expectations. We unfortunately did not have time to use many of the amenities, but what we did use, and the staff that attended us was all top notch. When traveling, particularly in other countries, we will look to stay at one of these hotels.

Our recent stay at the InterContinental in Istanbul made our return to Istanbul some 40 years after our 1974 honeymoon in the city both enjoyable and memorable. The hotel is very comfortable with great views and a most helpful staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DL1971 GREAT POSITION AND "OTTOMAN" EXPERIENCE
THE INTERCONTINENTAL OF ISTANBUL IS SITUATED IN A VERY FAVOURABLE POSITION, JUST A FEW STEPS FROM TKSIM SQUARE AND FROM THE HEART OF THE CITY.
THE HOTEL IS ABLE TO MAKE YOU TO LIVE OTTOMAN ATMOSPHERE, SHOWING ITS LIGTHS, SOFAS, LOBBIES, AND GARDENS, SUCH AS IN A TYPICAL TURKISH CONTEXT.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mouser9 great pool and work out area
Hotel is near Taksim square. Some construction on driveway ongoing and noisy. Restaurant called Veranda on ground level had great salad bar with casual dinner. Nice view of a garden and courteous service. Room is large with spectacular views of water. Bed a bit hard but very clean room. Some of staff are limited in English. Very helpful at breakfast. Went to roof top bar on a Sunday night and waited 15 minutes for service when not busy so finally left but did enjoy the view of the city at night. Used the pool and work out area. Outstanding! Did not have time for Turkish bath but looked like fun.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FreqBusTrav Overpriced for value offered
First indication of overpricing is the hotel booked car from the airport at 150Eur, compared with taxi rate of 20Eur - outrageous!
The hotel itself is located nicely, and has the elements you would expect. I booked a meeting room for my visit and although it was not as expected - I reminded the hotel at checkout that the meeting room was not listed on my final statement. After some time searching and discussion with supervisor - I was pleasantly surprised when told there would be no charge for the meeting room. Imagine my further surprise when I received an email from the hotel telling me they had changed their mind and later added a meeting room charge to my credit card (not authorized). They were asking me where best to send the invoice copy! Never again Intercontinental Istanbul.

The InterContinental Istanbul is a beautiful hotel in a great central location with fantastic views. The staff at the InterContinental are among the best. They were incredibly helpful and took great care to ensure every guest received VIP level service. As a frequent business traveller this hotel is at the top of my list.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sharesomephotos Overall I was very impressed and pleased with my 3 night stay here
The Intercontinental Istanbul is conveniently situated within easy walking distance of Taksim Square. A short walk will get you to the metro, a ride on the funicular railway gets you to the tram stop at Kabatas, from where you can easily get into the old city.
I stayed in a Junior suite overlooking the pool and the park. The room was large, had plenty of seating and cupboard space (3 double wardrobes), a spacious bathroom (although I think this was an accessible room) a second guest bathroom, in room safe (big enough to fit a couple of iPads and a 10 inch notebook)
The Ambassador upgrades were delivered without asking and I was very impressed by this. Room upgrade, gift, free water daily and a further 'special gift'. Excellent.
The spacious bathroom had a lighted shaving mirror, his and her's sinks, shower cubicle and a bath with shower and hand shower, in short extremely well appointed.
Room service was electric, the ice bucket test took only a few minutes. The hotel has free wifi and I had no problems with connection or speed, all in all quite impressive.
My only slight complaint would be the number of accessible electric points, there were a few behind the TV which I couldn't get to, so if I had to change one thing in the room it would be to install one of those hub/power banks to provide a bit more juice for today's ever burgeoning list of gadgets that we all travel with.
The hotel was very clean throughout, service was of the highest standard, the club lounge has stunning views over The Bosphorous and provides an adequate breakfast.
The hotel is nothing much to look at from the outside but has a beautiful spacious lobby, the front desk staff were efficient and polite.
On the roof the 'City Lights' bar is well worth a visit although drinks are somewhat pricey. the outdoor pool is also very clean and seems to have adequate seating.
Overall I was very impressed and pleased with my 3 night stay here. Would I visit this hotel again? Definitely yes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by C AND P"S ISTANBUL STAY C and P 's Istabul stay
THE LOCATION OF THE HOTEL WAS GREAT, THE PUBLIC ROOMS WERE WELL DONE AND THE CLUB FLOOR LOUNGE WAS EXCELLENT. WE THOUGHT OUR ROOM WAS VERY TIRED AND IN NEED OF SIGNIFICANT UPGRADE, FOR EXAMPLE, CARPET WAS SOILED AND THE BATHROOM DID NOT HAVE COUNTER OR STORAGE SPACE. DINNER IN THE ROOFTOP RESTAURANT WAS ONLY FAIR AND THE WINE OVERPRICED--A GLASS OF WINE FOR $18.00 ! STAFF WERE VERY HELPFUL AND PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH WHICH OFFSET SOME OF THE NEGATIVE FEELINGS. NEEDS WORK TO BE A TRULY "LUXURY" PROPERTY.
