“One of my favourites”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

This is one of my favorite hotels in Istanbul. It is in a great location (very close to posh nisantasi district) and taksim-beyoglu area. Both are 10 mins walk from the hotel which would be the best way to get to due to traffic.

If you pay extra and get a room overlooking to the Bosporus you would enjoy the amazing view. In addition, you get a very large balcony which is an added bonus.

Hotel has a very nice executive (club) lounge as well as a very nice restaurant (that one must try). Breakfast has also plenty to offer. However the downside is hotel is on the expensive side (for Istanbul) as well as the breakfast and the restaurant.

Room Tip: Get a room at the end of the corridor for an extended view of the park and the bridge.

This is a typical Hilton with some history of how it was the first luxury hotel in Istanbul. Stayed in a room with the Bosphorous view. The view is spectacular. Each room has a spacious balcony so sitting out is a wonderful experience. The area outside is quiet and that makes for a pleasant experience too. The service is terrific. The location close to Taxim square makes it outstanding. About 10 minutes to Taxim square, 20-25 TKL (about $13-16) to Sultanahmet square, which is a 20-25 min trip. The buffet breakfast was outstanding.

There is no denying it...when I stay in Istanbul, it simply must be at the Hilton. The staff take phenomenal care of you and all the details. The breakfast, both in the lounge and at Bosphorus Terrace, is phenomenal. The location is perfect for work or fun, and the view over the water is gorgeous.

The rooms, to be honest, are a bit tired. But that is part of the charm of the history of the place.

The Hilton is some way outside the old City and that may be a disadvantage for some but this is more than compensated by the splendid view from the dining room and from many bedrooms (including ours) across the Bosphorus.
Breakfast and evening meal were excellent (although not inexpensive). Service was also excellent and it was clear that the Hotel manager had trained the staff well. They were always helpful, courteous and prompt. The lounge area was a delightful place to have afternoon tea.

Room Tip: Ask for a view across the Bosphorus

A throwback to the 70s and early 80s with large rooms, great views and very good service. I was just here for one night and the hotel, although steeped in Nostalgia,was very good value. Breakfast was excellent and the location perfectly situated to the convention center. Good walking from here and excellent access to all places of interest.

Room Tip: Facing the Bospherous a must
