To accommodate people demands.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canuck65 Modern Hotel in Historic Area
Stayed there 3 nights while visiting Istanbul on the pursuit of exploring the world. First of all, the staff without exception created a welcoming, yet professional atmosphere throughout the hotel.
The location is in the older part of the city so once outside you are immediately are completely immersed in the local culture.
Was recognized as a Royal Ambassador but was presently surprised at check-in with the token gift of a miniature ornament portraying Ottoman history.

Intercontinental has the best location in Turkey and you can easily connect with your destination. It also has a great service with a really hardworking and dedicated staff.

Staying at the Intercontinental Istanbul, in the middle of the Taksim area and still enjoying a pleasant relaxing atmosphere is really quite an achievement.
The staff and the property provided me with all the attention, good feeling and comfort I needed during my stay in Istanbul.
The top floor "lounge" style bar & restaurant are a real pleasure.
Thanks for everything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RMcLean Very nice stay
Being located next to Taksim square makes this property very convenient. From here you can catch the metro or stay in the area and enjoy the clubs and restaurants.
The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. The concierge lent me a walking stick since I was limping from recent ankle surgery.
The hotel upgraded me to a very nice suite upon check in and the club lounge was very nice perk.
I really enjoyed the club on the roof. From there you can see amazing views of the city and the Bosphorus. And at night these views are even more amazing.
I will definitely be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diana122 Wonderful location and view along with great staff
My experience was superb. I enjoyed every minute of it. The location of the hotel is simply the best in the city as it is close by to Taksim Square and Istiklal street and from there everywhere is accessible and easy to get to. My room had a view of the whole city so with a bit of coffee early in the morning, you can enjoy these moments of meditation into tbe world of beauty in front of you! The staff were amazing and so helpful and positive. Wherever and whenever you look are smiling faces and welcoming words. I enjoyed my evenings sitting at the lobby drinking herbs and having sweets there at the lobby's cafe which has absolutely wonderful staff. Everything is clean and super tidy. When I come back to Istanbul, I will definitely stay at InterCon because they are the best and I have and will recommend it to anyone visiting the very beautiful Istanbul

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Voucher Good choice
Stayed here for 2 nights this month.
Very good location for Taksim Sq and easy access to the sea side.
Excellent staff offered me a club room as an upgrade.
Good size with nice sea view, however needed instant refurbishment & double glassed windows.
Expensive but tasty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Said2013 Very Nice hotel… memorable
I had an excellent stay. The Hotel location and glamour atmosphere was great.
I was well recognized as ambassador member. I had a room upgrade to suit which was awesome, although they have not allowed me to use the club room although it was for club and suit rooms.
I really cannot complain about, but it was like been upgraded to first class in an airplane but no meal to be served to you! Those small things can make a difference to customer stay experience.
If you are planning to stay around Taqsim area then the hotel location is perfect for you. Also, it’s near to metro. Hotel facilities are very good.
I suggest to the hotel management to give adaptors free of charge to customers and charged if taking from the hotel. I have not had this experience before that you need to buy the adaptor but it might be normal in other countries.
Overall I had excellent stay and I recommend the hotel… don’t forget your adaptor as it is not free.

Friendly staff that helped created a memorable experience for me! Very helpful and courteous! Management did very possible to accommodate my extended stay associated to my hectic travel schedule. There are probably cheaper hotels in the area but what I paid was well worth the service. This hotel was perfect! Close to the city center which may my evenings very enjoyable! I definitely would stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TCAA I would definitely go back!
Stayed for two nights in mid November - did not feel it was long enough so I would like to go back. Only criticism is the lack of knowledge of the reception/door staff regarding local restaurants/coffee shops etc. Recommendations would have been appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mickeyfin Loved this hotel
This was not an inexpensive place to stay. However, it was great, conveniently located and beautiful. It had a lovely fur and leather shop where I purchased 2 coats and was happy not to have to haggle over prices and the quality and service was excellent. I spent a couple of hours in the Spa and had a Turkish bath and Swedish massage. The staff were wonderful and it was the best bath/massage of my life. They had many massage types, so a person could stay there for a long time. Same cost as a first class hotel in USA. The room was fantastic with the most beautiful view of the sea and east Istanbul. We ate in all 3 restaurants and the service and quality was great, but expensive.
All and all, we would stay there again. The TV selection was poor, but we were not there to watch TV.

Great location, on Tacsim Square, great service, only steps from Bosforo Cruise boats, great view, steps from Dolmabahce Palace, great famous shopping street, somewhat long but enjoyable walk to Galata Tower and Galata Bridge. Could improve breakfast selection at the Club level.

Our first time in Istanbul as a young couple, we were really surprised by this property. Intercontinental is our favourite hotel brand, but this the Istanbul Intercontinental is simply put - exceptional. The service was very attentive, we received the full Ambassador treatment (9AM checkin, Welcome gift, room upgrade - with a view of the Bosphorus) and the location was awesome (about 5-7 minutes to Taxim square the central İstiklâl Caddesi). Thanks Intercontinental for maintaining such a great standard to your properties!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 35798 A great IST weekend
The welcome at check-in was warm and friendly, everything was explained well and no questions remained unanswered. Also the Concierge and Business Center were very valuable. We had a Bosphorus Suite which was really a great accommodation. Jacuzzi with full Bosphorus view - what more should I say. The Club breakfast was ok, they had gluten free bread and the waiter was friendly as well. Of course there were some details, that could easily be done better, but all in all it was a great stay, so close to the Taksim square and Metro station.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveller2016 Excellent view of Bosphorus
I have stayed at many Intercon hotels, but this was one of the unique stays. I was recognized as a royal platinum ambassador and upgraded to a nice room with a fabulous view of Bosphorus. My family had a great time in the hotel. We were given access to the club lounge which provided excellent service. This was a great example of hospitality and courtesy. The hotel staff was very well trained and experienced.
Turkish tea is worth mentioning. We enjoyed Turkish tea while sitting in the quite environment of club lounge and overlooking the beautiful night view of Bosphorus.
I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing stay.
