Offer ambiguity

It was not clear from the offer whether breakfast was included or not. So we had to pay an extra charge to upgrade the original offer to include breakfast.

One of the best in İstanbul

We had a very nice stay in Hilton İstanbul. We were there for a weekend gateaway. Room was large and clean. Staff was really helpful. The location was not close to historic town but we were looking for beeing close to Taksim Square and we got it. Hotel is 10 minutes walk from Taksim and 15 minutes walk from Nişantaşı. The only thing that is the furnitures were a bit old, it can be renewed. But the room were spotless so it was not a that big deal. Overall it was a really nice Hilton experience.

Hilton hotel

We stayed at this hotel during a conference held at the the nearby convention center. The hotel was conveniently located next to the convention center (walking distance) although a bit far from the old city. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. We ate lunch at the restaurant twice and dinner once. The food was excellent. The athletic facilities were also excellent. This hotel is highly recommended if you want to stay near Taksim square or attending a conference at the convention center.

A great hotel, great location

We stayed at the Hilton Istanbul for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. We upgraded to a Bospherous view bedroom and had one of the best views one can get in the city too; just a pity such things do not come as standard! Facilities were excellent - we made exentsive use of the hotel's putside pool to cool down after a day's visiting the sites. We used one of the hotel resteraunts too and found the staff to be very attentive and helpful. The only time we had a problem was the first night when the girl at the desk didn't know where the Borsa Resteraunt was, even though it was less than 100 metres from the hotel!

Among the better Hiltons out there

I've stayed at this Hilton several times over the past nine years and have been happy with the consistently superb service I've received there. Take advantage of the concierge service--they do make things happen. Location is serviceable--an easy walk to Taksim and close to the every growing metro system to get you to points near and far in Istanbul. And if it's not your first time in Istanbul, the Lebanese restaurant on the 9th floor is a delicious change from hotel fare.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get the Istanbul metro card--it makes the individual trips cheaper, saves the lines at the jeton machines and is refillable..

Terrible experience.

I had a terrible experience. First, there were concerts or weddings going on all weekend, which isn't a problem, unless the noise keeps you from sleeping. These events lasted until well past 1 in the morning. I had to switch rooms one night and the next night I should have as well, but was too annoyed to re-pack all my stuff. When I complained about it, all the staff said was, "It happens." Terrible customer service. Breakfast was decent as was the location. I would never stay there again, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Not really a 5 stars!

Rooms are getting old. Pillows were not at Hilton 5 stars level. Small old tube TV, while less star hotels already use LCD screens. Weak concierge. Very slow check in. I prepaid my stay and they presented me a new bill at the checkout. Great Breakfast and great location.
