Comparing to their prices with Grand Hyatt, which is just opposite to IC, I think it does not value money. Though receptionist and other staff was quite friendly and supportive and stat was goos as well but comparing to Grand Hyatt with same budget, its not that good. Syed

Feels like an old hotel. Furniture is old fashioned. Bathrooms are old. Lots of stains on sofas. 5 stars but very regular standards. Deluxe rooms are like regular rooms. Bosphorus view is satisfying..

Excellent hotel. Perfect location right at the tip of Taksim square. It's walking distance to and from the hotel Rooms are old style 5 star need to be re furbished and modernized Great breakfast Highly recommended When you walk in, a modern and grand lobby welcomes you , however the rooms are not up to this standard.

I was there for business and wasn’t the first time I choose to stay there. But its first time I write about InterContinental Hotel. Amazing luxury with unbelievable view, rooms and service there perfect, and no question about breakfast and dinner just excellent. Deserves every cent you spent there. It’s the best city hotel in Konstantinoupoli, nothing more to say.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
