I have visited this chain hotel to visit a friend. We had some chat at the lobby and he showed me his room. To me it was pretty standart and there was strange smell in the room. The view was great and it was strange that you need to have a key to go up the lifts. I guess its... More

the location is perfect - near the airport shuttle if one chooses to take it. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The staff on the floor is really friendly. The receptionists, though, is a hit and miss. However, some of them are really accommodating and professional. Ece at the front desk was great. She did not check me... More

Hotel staff are very helpful especially the front desk manager ( lady with light blue eyes ). They upgraded our room to the 17th floor and we had a wonderful view of the Bosporus and Dolmapacha palace . The hotel is a 3mins walk from Taksim and a 10 mins drive from old Istanbul.

Consistently high quality of service and friendly staff made my 5-day journey comfortable. Good security standard to inspect arriving vehicles at the entrance was reassuring. A well maintained old hotel with good service like Intercontinental Istanbul is far better than a modern one with mediocrate standard of service. I was very happy with my choice of this hotel over so... More

With a few touch ups this hotel could look up to standard. Possibly the worst Intercontinental hotel i stayed in so far, Every thing looks nice from the outside and around the lobby until you get to the rooms, pretty much all the standard rooms stink of smoke even found a cigarette butt on the floor despite the fact that...

Great hotel...great service...great experience. Full marks. Very friendly staff. Their guest relations manager Laley opened the breakfast buffet earlier as we had to leave on a tour very early. The atmosphere and location are all amazing. Request for a higher floor with views of the bosphorous. All in all 100%

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
