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.

Nisantasi, shopping centers and metro statiton. Very good service and qualified staff, especially the concierge was very experienced and recommended the best places to visit. Clean rooms and amazing views of the Bosphours and the city. Safran Restaurant on the roof top is a must to try with its local cuisine and special thanks to Tayfun for his wine recommendations.
