View From The Top

The view from the 14th and 15th floor was amazing....one of the best view in the entire city........only complaint was the concierge was not familiar with his own city...told us the place we wanted to go was not walkable and we walked it in 20 mins....could not give good directions and could only give recommendations of places to eat from brochures...nothing local as we wanted and told him that was what we were looking for.Other than that no complaints...

Great Hotel

Newly renovated rooms are fabulous, we were given an eighth floor room with a view of the Bosphorus. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Location not convenient to most tourist sites, but take advantage of the nearby Dolmabache Palace which is only a twenty minute walk. We enjoyed breakfast, either buffet or menu, with a great selection, on the lobby level. Wii visit again!

New Year in Istanbul

The Conrad Hotel is a typical 5 star hotel, with all standard features. Concierge was vey helpful and waiters were extremely pleasant and attentive. Top service! Location is good, but not so close to the most important places to allow you to walk. My only problem was with the room - in the original room there was no hot water and therefore I was changed to another room. Unfortunately, the time spent between finding out the problem and getting the new room was too long and I missed a dinner due to that. No excuses received.

Vacation

This hotel is clean and comfortable. As far as location there are better hotels however for the value it is worth it. We stayed on the Executive floor which was great as we had our own lounge overlooking the city and bosphorus and that was awesome. Plus the free snacks and breakfast was great. I definitely recommend staying on this floor. The only thing I did not like about this hotel is that there are still smoking rooms and the smell travels. It should be all non smoking (Sorry smokers!)

Fair business hotel

the hotel was efficient and staff helpful. The amenties were inadequate for a highly rated hotel.limited restaurants and menus, few exceptional features, rooms had very basic comforts, wireless Internet was pricey as was room service and mini bar. This detracted from the experience. I would not recommend iras a five star but okay business hotel.

Conrad Hotel Istanbul

The location is very good and enabled us to easily connect to both the Asian and European sides of the city. The level of service was excellent at this hotel as we were unwinding after two weeks of busy conferences elsewhere in Turkey.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you crossing to the Asian side of the city, bridge traffic can be very heavy (and taxi fares more expensive). It is worth walking fifteen minutes towards the harbor in Besiktas, where you can take regular boat rides to the Asian side in a fraction of the time (and cost). Ask the hotel concierge for more details.

In the heart of the city

Everything you can possibly want is in Istanbul and this hotel is in the heart of it. Easy walking distance to a lot of places but be warned about the taxis they will try and rip you off, ask the fare first.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The price in the hairdressers is extortionate. Try just along the road where there are a couple over shops. Prices much more realistic. Language not a problem as hand signals very good.

Great location but poor service...

The hotel was in an excellent location, close to the up and coming area of Besiktas and a short metro ride to the historical sites. The hotel was also spotlessly clean- however the positive ends there. Upon checking in we were told that our reservation did not include breakfast when it clearly did. The hotel refused to contact [...] and I had to go to the business centre of the hotel to access my account to prove breakfast was included! The staff at reception would not let me use their PC and refused to acknowlegde they had the booking wrong! Eventually they conceded breakfast was included but I did not get an apology. To add to this negative experience, I went to use the Business Centre again to check in for my return flight( at other 5* hotels in Istanbul this is happily done by the Concergie but not at the Conrad which charges a foutune for the internet) and I was ignored for about 5 minutes at the desk while the member of staff was on a phonecall. Again no apology and I was made to feel like a burden as opposed to a valued guest. Every morning at breakfast we had to explain that breakfast was included as this information had not been passed on- this got tiresome! Although the rooms were well furnished and very clean, I would never stay at the Conrad again- poor customer service.

Instead of taking a cab to the sights take a short stroll to Kabatas tramway station and go from there, a pleasant walk and very cheap compared to cabs.

Excellent fitness center

Most people stay in this hotel for if they are in Istanbul for business as the location is not walking distance to the major sights in the old town, but it is also a great place to stay for a spa relaxation experience when arriving. The fitness center with sauna and steam rooms was excellent, nice pool and work out areas. The rooms were large, comfortable and inviting with great views of the river or city. It's very expensive to eat at the hotel but there are many restaurants in Taksim that are easy to get to. To get to old town it is an easy taxi, tram or ferry ride.
