Modern five-star high-rise at the edge of Gezi Park, with an outdoor pool and a rooftop restaurant overlooking the Bosphorus

The Lowdown

At the edge of Gezi Park, in the city’s lively Taksim neighborhood, the InterContinental Istanbul is a luxe high-rise with stellar views across the Bosphorus. This classic five-star hotel offers all the amenities you’d expect from the InterContinental brand, including five bars and restaurants, an outdoor pool, a full-service spa and an extensive fitness center. Rooms skew toward the traditional, with carved wooden headboards and silk curtains. The lobby is similarly formal, with a dramatic stairwell framed by gold banisters and plenty of marble and mirrors. Of its restaurants, Safran is the most opulent, serving traditional cuisine accompanied by live Turkish fasil music, while City Lights is a buzzy spot on the roof.

In the Area

The hotel is a short taxi ride from the city’s old town, Sultanahmet, which is jam-packed with such historic sights as the Blue Mosque and the Byzantine cathedral turned mosque, the Hagia Sofia. For a sense of what the present day city has to offer, plan a visit to Istanbul Modern, a striking riverside gallery with its own chic café, the perfect spot for watching boats ply the waters between Europe and Asia. Istanbul’s stylish denizens like to stay up late; start with sundowners and dinner at Vogue, then head out to dance at Reina.

Excellent Hotel; however, you did not remit the deposit you have taken from my debit card upon my checking-in

I have had stayed at your honorable hotel from July 29, 2019 till August 3, 2019. Upon my arrival you have taken via my debit card "visa" a sum of $ 300 as a deposit.

To make it clear, I have not taken anything from the minibar or order anything to my room "number 317".

Till this moment you have not refund this amount in spite my phone calls.

Apart from this issue, I can confess that your hotel is excellent from all aspects. It is characterized by its amazing staff, hospitality, surroundings and the like. I do highly recommend this hotel.

Top services

I stayed in this hotel several times and I was always satisfied, it is noticeable this time that there is a major focus in gusts service, from checkin desk throughout all facilities I felt the sincere and warm welcome of the staff, many thanks to all without exception.
I also enjoyed my time in the lounge, I would say it is one of the best hotel lounges I used.

hearty breakfast

My company sent me to Istanbul for training. Among the hotels my company recommended was the Intercontinental hotel I liked. I reached my trainings on time due to its location. You can walk to public transportation. I went to my room only to sleep at night. It was quiet. My room was cleaned every day. The breakfast in the morning was quite hearty breakfast. I would recommend.
