    Location 5.38 /10

    The Intercontinental Ceylan Istanbul is in Taksim area just behind the park of the same name. It is only a 5 minute walk from the famous Istiklal street, the epicentre of Istanbul's nightlife. Allow 15 minutes by taxi to get to the historical area of Sultanahmet. The airport is 12.5 miles from the hotel (allow 25 minutes by taxi for the transfer).

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The hotel has 335 standard rooms. There are two different types: those with a view of the Bosphorus, and the others. The view is unmissable thanks to the large bay windows that take up a whole wall, from ceiling to floor. Stay away if you get vertigo, particularly if the room is on one of the top floors! The decor is inspired by Ottoman theme: marquetry furniture, blue and ochre colours... In terms of comfort and equipment, all the rooms are the same: air conditioning, full mini-bar (crisps, biscuits, fruit juice, alcohol, chocolate, etc.), satellite TV, telephone with 2 lines, and safe. The bathrooms are very clean and bright. There is a bath, toilet, hairdryer, scales, comb and telephone.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Intercontinental Ceylan is a high, 18-storey modern building that was built in 1979 and renovated in 1996. Its large lobby and high ceilings house a lounge surrounded with palm trees and columns. At one end, the English Bar, with a very British vibe, welcomes you every evening from 5 pm. A fitness centre offers a range of activities including yoga, stretching, step, and tum-and-bum programmes. You can also use the large gym room, hammam, sauna, solarium or hammam. In summer, the hotel opens its outdoor pool with kid's pool.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    From the lobby, a large staircase in glass and gilt leads to the main restaurant. For all meals, the chef offers international cuisine either as a buffet or a la carte. In the evening you can dine in the panoramic restaurant, the Safran, at the top of the hotel. This Turkish restaurant gives you a taste of local gastronomy. You can also have dinner in the Citronelle (French and Thai cuisine). For a snack during the day, you can have a light meal at the panoramic bar (snack menu) in a Latino atmosphere, or a bite in the tea room of the lobby (buffets and pastries) to the sound of the piano and the violin. The ample room service menu offers a proper meal in your room 24 h a day.

    To know

    To avoid traffic noise and get a good view, choose a room on the 9th floor or above. If you opt for a room without a view of the Bosphorus, ask for a room with a view of Taksim park. Those allergic to tobacco smell should ask for one of the 26 non-smoking rooms.

      The Hotel Hilton in Istanbul offers all the standard comfort of large business hotels, but this place is also suitable for tourists and anyone who wants high-quality services. It is rare in Istanbul to find a hotel with a large landscaped garden.

      Strange mixture! The Divan offers modernism and the services of a large hotel in a slightly 70's atmosphere. A functional, comfortable address a few minutes' walk from Taksim Square.

      • Value for money 6.91
      • Location 6.1

      This is a discreet little place at the very heart of Taksim, the city's business district.
      With its fine restaurant and pleasant staff, the Feronya primarily attracts business travellers, though it is also a good place for a perfectly pleasant getaway.
      Nevertheless, a good bit of renovations wouldn't go amiss, particularly where the rather gloomy communal areas are concerned.

      The style of the Nippon is elegant and designer, its common areas and guest rooms decorated with simplicity and character.
      The hotel opened some ten years ago, but it has kept a youthful and energetic atmosphere, taking advantage of its small size and its location to attract a mixed clientele: a perfect establishment for holidaymakers but also well equipped to cater for those travelling to the area on business, the Nippon is the ideal establishment for a stay in the capital.

      • Location 6.39

      Located close to the Marmara, this hotel has a young and dynamic style that is rather convincing: take, for example, the restaurant that caters to business travellers and employees who work in the surrounding offices daily, as well as the clean, private, and welcoming spa.
      The strong point of this hotel is undoubtedly its proximity to Taksim Square, the business centre of Istanbul and a hub for nightlife.
      The Taksim is a discreet place to a stay, either alone or with your family.

      Efficiency and style are undeniable features of the Midtown Hotel.
      Located in the heart of the Taksim district, this hotel, which caters to a large business clientele, appears to easily meet the various requirements of its guests.
      This hotel is a pleasant place to stay for several reasons, one of which is the welcome afforded to its guests.
      If you have the opportunity (and luck), ask for the Corner Suite: this is definitely the best room in the hotel.

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
