I stayed here on a business trip for a few days. The whole experience was very civilised, from check-in, the turn down service, restaurant food, good advice from concierge on local events and attractions. I recommend the Hotel and will stay here again should the chance arise. 5/5 overall

Best location in Istanbul. You can have a walk to get to the main shopping streets and to many great restaurants. The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable. Starbucks is just 2 minutes walking

From the lobby to the rooms, this hotels speaks luxury as promised by Intercontinental hotels. Both City and River views are astonishing. Bathrooms and carpets need upgrade or renovations (although clean). Breakfast is expensive for the quality (almost 28% of room rate)....nearby options on Istaklal street are much better and economical if you are looking for value for money. Lobby...

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and got an amazing deal plus a room upgrade just because the room was not ready at the time of arrival. Front desk service was amazing and the Spa worth spending a morning in it.

We stayed at the Intercontinental Istanbul for two days with a Uniworld River Cruise... rm 911( two twin beds). It was a nice room overlooking the Bosphorus. We had a three night(10-16 to 10-19-2016) extended stay past the tour date. We paid in December 2015($1224.35 which is $408.12/night) at the rate that was to save money if paid in full....

This is a somewhat old hotel, ugly from the outside and not very pretty inside. The rooms are fine and the staff is friendly but nothing special. Likewise for the breakfast. On the whole, I would have expected more from a five star hotel.

Staying in Sisli

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.
