Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Family Holiday at Istanbul
Being on the tram line made it easy for us to choose Holiday Inn Istanbul City. Rooms were very comfortable and large enough for a 5 night stay with a 7 yr old kid. Better pillows, more power sockets and larger spread at the breakfast buffett would have made me give a 10/10 rating for the hotel. As of now, I would give 9/10.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dojomax convenient location, comfortable rooms and friendly people
I visit Istanbul for business about 4 times a year. the location of this hotel is very convenient to travelling around Istanbul. You are always greeted at reception in a friendly, helpful and efficient way. Also you are frequently remembered as a regular guest. the rooms are comfortable and there are plenty of amenities if there is time and opportunity to use them. Recent changes to the restaurant and breakfast buffet are the only thing which are not an improvement to the customer experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marlene the First A good choice in Istanbul
We had an excellent stay here. The room is comfortable, the breakfast is a joy, and the staff is superb. The only drawback is the location, but that is not really a problem if you are prepared to walk or to take public transit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 0042 Poor Ventilation in the rooms
Very poor ventilation in the room , in a non-smoking room the bathroom would fill up every night with stench of cigarette smoke.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 0042 POOR VENTILATION
Although we were allocated a Non Smoking Room, it is hard for anyone to believe that the bathroom was filled with cigarette smoke each night which also came into the room. It was very annoying breathing second hand smoke. I informed the front desk and they mentioned that the window may have been left open (which was not the case). I had to run the airconditioner every night which runs only hot or cold with no temperature control, so it was freezing all night.
The management of the hotel should take a serious look into the ventilation system as this has been a very BAD experience. I do not recommend anyone who is a non smoker to go to that hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tamertontreaclemines Good position for business and leisure
The hotel is well placed for the tourist areas of Topkapi palace, Blue Mosque etc convenient for Attaturk Airport and ideal for most of the business needs of a business traveller.
They were renovating the outdoor pool area while I was there so a little noisy, but obviously necessary once in a while, also rooms on the street side tend to have more outside noise at all hours, however the general situation is good, and the area is friendly..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BenTaylor2389 Short but Very Nice Stay
I stayed here for one night for a business trip. I would certainly recommend this hotel, it is a short taxi trip from the airport, short compared to the distance travelled to get to some hotels in istanbul from the airport.
It is very convenient with buses located directly outside and has a very nice pool and spa facilities, although i did not use.
All in all a pleasant stay with the reception staff being very helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ArchieOnTour Sehr laut und teuer
Das Hotel liegt an einer Hauptverkehrsstraße und neben einer Moschee. Die Zimmer sind gegen den Lärm des Verkehrs und des Muezzin nicht isoliert, man wird also jeden Morgen zum Sonnenaufgang! geweckt.
Die Klimaanlage hat nicht richtig gekühlt, man musste über das Fenster lüften, der Lärm war dann extrem.
Der Preis pro Nacht war ca. doppelt so hoch wie bessere Hotels in der Innenstadt.
