Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oussama Comfortable stay and pleasant exept check out
It was a lovely stay exept the check out the reception guy insisted that I get a late check out only at 14:00 am as I am a platinium member only!!!!this is ridiculous the way he acted a s his answers where take it or leave it ( we can not at all).,.
I found it so ridiculous for a platinium member and that I spend too much money per month in you IHG hotels and for a small issue he made the good things going bad....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bannobhon It was convenient to everything.
Everything was delicious.
Staff are polite, sensitive to the waiter restaurant.
I especially want to emphasize the concierge.
All were on top.
I am very pleased with their work.
Thank you so much.
Just for that, you should return your hotel.

We went to Istanbul in July, 2013 ,as part of our Europe vacation .We stayed in the Intercontinental hotel for 9 nights. The hotel has a privilege location , very near Taksim Square , restaurants , shopping and public transportation . The hotel is very beautiful and has great facilities . The spa , the gym and a lovely pool add convenience to your stay , not to mention their excellent restaurants and bars. The rooms are beautiful , very clean an have lovely views . I recommend the Bosphorus view rooms . We recommend this hotel one hundred percent .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alice13 Average Public Area, Tired Rooms
I felt the public areas were certainly adequate. However I felt the rooms suffer from a much needed overhaul. They were tired and worn.
Additionally, the person came to do my nightly turn down at 6pm. I was in my room getting ready to go out for the evening. I asked him to come back later but he pretended not to understand English and kept insisting, "water or towels".
The breakfast buffet was hardly worth the cost. The food choices were quite limited and tasteless.

My wife and I spent our most memorable anniversary celebration at Ceylan Intercontinental. Special room decoration for the anniversary was a pleasant surprise when we entered the room.

The reception staff were great from the minute i presented my self, they have even extended warmer greeting once they know that i am Gold Ambassador member and i was upgraded to suite.
The comfortable, cleaned and organized hotel will make me again make a choice to stay there once i am in Istanbul.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paulina21 Exceptional staff
I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel over what was a very difficult weekend for the staff during the recent demonstrations. With riot police outside and tear gas canisters being fired, the staff were incredibly professional and resourceful. They made sure the guest experience was a very pleasurable one and kept all services going without missing a beat. I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's facilities.

I am a Platinum Ambassador (used to be Royal before I stopped travelling). I am loyal to Intercontinental brand. The staff are very cordial and helpfull no doubt about it. Once I lost a book at the swimming pool and before I checked out they managd to buy me a new one. This was amazing considering the effort required to find it in Istanbul book stores.
My only comment is to change room furniture and colors would give it a fresh look and provide clients with a new experience. One small item which I thought should be irrelevant is the wifi use is charged to customers

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tworivers59 A great place to stay
One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in a few!). The staff are very friendly and helpful in all departments.
It's a good location and the only downside were all of the roadworks going on around the hotel and Taksim Square, but that's not the hotel's fault.
I used room service one evening, and the food / service were very good. I was upgraded to a superb room, once they knew I was in the Priority Club.
If I ever go back to Istanbul, then I would definitely stay here again.

as a priority club member, i always try to stay at hotels which are part of the club.
I enjoyed staying at the hotel and it was my first time but I was disappointed when I saw that part of the lobby was under maintenance and it was not brought to our notice during the reservation.
How ever, it was nice experience and the services were excellent. And if I may suggest, hope you provide an entertainment function in the lobby by having a person who plays piano.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DOIN Stunning hotel in a stunning City
Istanbul has been on our 'bucket list' for several years and it did not disappoint when we finally made it. As you would expect of a City that straddles both Europe and Asia it is an eclectic mix of architecture and culture. We were fortunate enough to have a Suite at the InterContinental with fantastic panoramic views of the Bosphorus and the City. The Concierge recommended some excellent restaurants with Topaz our favourite, although the InterContinental's City View restaurant is excellent. The doorman greeted us with a towel and water each morning after our run and this was symptomatic of the care and attention to detail that all the staff showed us on our stay. Highly recommended as a base to explore the City

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alybaba Generally an excellent choice.
The hotel is extremely well run with friendly knowledgeable staff. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The views of the Bosphorus are magnificent. The windows even open for fresh air if required.
The location is great near Taksim Square which is undergoing major construction. This can lead to traffic jams during peak hours making access to the hotel difficult. However, the metro, and the shopping areas of Taksim are but a short walk away.
The internet, and all the basic requirements of a business or leisure traveler are well met.
Perhaps the only complaint is the cafe restaurant staff at lunch which is usually a buffer with something for everybody. However it was difficult to get their attention, and service was poor. Many of the dishes were empty and not replenished even though we were withing the lunch hour parameters. Don't recommend having lunch in the hotel as value and service are sorely lacking.
Overall, though, the hotel is a great choice. Have been staying here for some 15 years.

I had a great experience due to the fact that I they upgrade my room from a standard to a suite. It was only a pity I stayed one night but the size of the room and the beautiful view over the Bosporus is just fantastic. My hope is that when I return next time that I get the same treatment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nicolas75flyertalk The very best of Turkish hospitality tradition
The business suite with Bosphorus view is huge (more than 60 sqm large).
Nice view over the city and the Bosphorus
Opulent (read kitsch) style.
Dining and seating area. Desk.
Bedroom with very comfortable bed
Nice marble bathroom with bathtub, seperate walk-in shower
2 flat screen televisions with large choice of international channels. Dvd player
The club lounge has been recently renovated in warm and very elegant contemporary design
Very good breakfast, nice evening food, creative pastries at tea time
Superb service and great staff
3 PCs with printer
Very good club lounge
Trendy and pleasant panoramic bar (but live music is somewhat too loud)
Large room with nice view
It is a pity that the design of the rooms is not as elegant as the club lounge or the panoramic bar
Smoke smell even on non-smoking floors
The best advance rate happened to be EUR 35 more expensive than the best flexible rate the previous day.
The InterContinental Istanbul is a great hotel despite kistch interior design of the rooms.
Location is very convenient. Very close to most trendy places :
- south to Harbiye with upscale boutique and restaurants,
- north to Cihangir, with trendy cafés (love White Mill Café and House Café Istiklal),
- north to Serdar-ı Ekrem, with designer boutiques.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DCtravel Fabulous View but thats about it
Check in was really ordinary and i am an ambasador member, the breakfast and service in the Club was shocking : worst buffet i have had at an intercon with really sloppy service, the first newspaper delivered was the wrong one , the following day we didnt even get one , people were walking into the room without ringing the bell or anouncing themselves , the aircon kept us awake the second night ..... single redeeming feature is the signature restaurant but you dont need to stay there to eat there. Wont be going back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dakota1935 2 aspects disapointing
The hotel and its staff are very good. Food is excellent and the top floor is well worth a visit for a meal.
There are two points which, unfortunately, let down the experience of staying in this hotel and which certainly do not meet the expectations of this hotel chain. These are the lack of courtesy bus from and to the airport, the second failure is that the hotel charges for internet. Despite complaining about the slow speed of the internet the speed remained poor and often dropped out when using it, the hotel claimed there was no problem. This was disappointing and certainly left me with a negative view.
Failure to provide free transport and internet is at complete variance to all the other Holiday Inn & Intercontinental hotels I have stayed in. Intercontinental Istanbul should consider its position carefully and review their policies, apart from good hotel standards one thing you expect from this brand is consistency!

Many hotels have great staff but we found this Intercon went out of its way to be friendly and helpful. The upgraded room we were in was bright during the day and really dark at night, allowing for a fantastic night's sleep. The business lounge is probably one of the best in the Intercon group with a wide variety of nibbles at night that changed every day. We will keep returning.
