Enjoy the best of both worlds at this sleek, five-star hotel overlooking Istanbul’s Golden Horn – an extension of the Bosphorus Strait. The modern Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul Golden Horn enjoys fabulous views over the natural estuary, towards the city’s famous skyline, complete with mosques and their impressive minarets. The airy atrium lobby has marble flooring and statement lighting. Its interior design feels very much akin to a glamorous cruise ship, with black and white photographs of the Golden Horn’s rich maritime past appearing in public areas and guest rooms.
The restaurant serves lovely buffet breakfasts with plenty of local temptations, plus quality fare for dinner. The spa and wellness centre is perfect for unwinding after a day out in this most frenetic and culturally rich city, and there’s a small but extremely well-equipped gym for fitness buffs.
Decorated in brown, cream and beige with geometric-pattern carpet, Superior rooms are spacious and feature a glass wall between bathroom and bedroom. Views over the waterfront or city are inspirational, be it day or night.
Pruva Swiss Grill Restaurant offers outstanding food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, using local ingredients to create Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Swiss classics rub shoulders with Turkish specials to imaginative effect and there’s an open show kitchen. There’s also the Lobby Lounge and Bar for relaxed snacks and drinks.
No visit to Turkey would be complete without experiencing a hammam, and the hotel has a charming one in its own wellness centre. There’s also a sauna to retreat to, plus a couple of massage treatment rooms with expert therapists on hand.
The hotel is located in the commercial district, away from the Old City’s congested narrow streets. It’s surrounded by parkland, with views over the Golden Horn estuary. Access to the Old City is convenient, via metro or taxi. Once there, you can visit the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, to name but a few.
How to Get There
We went for a quick business trip for 3 days in Istanbul from Greece.
The location was good the room was perfect and the staff was exceptional!!
Special thanks to the gentleman working at the reception as night shift from the 14th till 15th early morning he helped me a lot with a serious health issue I faced!!
Also Mr Fatih and Mr Haydar both members of the staff where very helpful!!
The Reasturant on the 10th floor has exceptional view and good service!!!
Excellent hotel and professional staff. I liked their hookah lounge.
The room size was very nice and bathroom was clean.
Room service was very professional and fast.
The hotel price is competing other hotels at Istanbul that provide the same service level.
Fantastic hotel. Good service. Lovely view of golden horn. Mr Hayder was very helpfull. Centrally situated. Rooms very comfy and spacious. Breakfast good. Reception staff kind. Would recommend to stay at this hotel. Thank you.
This hotel was a part of second leg in the city of Istanbul. Chose the room with a view of the golden horn. Beautiful setup and perfect view for a gorgeous morning.
Reached a couple of hours early so was politely asked to wait. In the meantime Fatima from the hotel walked up to me with a nice glass of tea with a Simit as a gift. That was a refreshing change to a hotel experience. She was ever so courteous but friendly at the same time.
Overall the stay was perfect. The location is a bit off but if you have access to a car or are booked on a tour then this is perfect.
What an amazing people and property and services, Right from the General Manager all were superb. Specially Sule the front office lady and Fatih the manager guest relations took so much extra care for us all the four days of stay. We enjoyed every bit of it. wonderful location, people and services!
with warm regards,
