Frequented by cruise ship tourists the breakfast buffet is a stampede in the morning. Waiters are not very friendly and tend to look down instead of being attentive. Outside areas are noisy and prone to cigarette smoke. I was in a club continental room for platinum elite members buy the carpet needed cleaning. The shower was broken and the complimentary...

A very enjoyable 1-day stay. Particularly impressed by the room quality (superb view & very comfortable bed), the excellent outdoor pool and the roof-top restaurant. Tip: The tram (from Kabalas) provides a good way of getting to the Blue Mosque et al but make sure you have plenty of 1 lira coins with you (each journey costs 4 lira &...

Excellent place to stay in Istanbul. Rooms and service are great. The only downside is that they are charging London prices for food and drink in the hotel when it should be a good bit cheaper to reflect the fact that it is in Turkey. Good choice if you are not concerned about cost.

I stayed at Intercontinental both for business and for tourism and in both environments it was a superb experience. Location is fantastic near Taksim square and therefore near the metro. All the hotel facilities are splendid including gym, spa, pool, food and of course rooms.

Hotel was ok, but right next to it is the Gezi park where bad people frequently appear. Within 20 meters from the hotel in an afternoon, a guy pretended to brush shoes and cut my ankel and threatened me for money. Same thing happened to another guest two days before. The trick was to drop his brush to get attention....

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.
