Hilton Istanbul Bosphorus

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel in the middle of all the best places Istanbul has to offer. We came to attend a concert at the open air theater in Harbiye and stayed at this hotel so that we could walk to and from the conert. Apart from being a little run down, the hotel was pretty comfortable, the staff were amazing, they did everything to make us feel at home. We'd definately consider staying here on our next trip to Istanbul.

Location of this Hilton hotel is great and easy to walk to city center. Nice view and friendly environment. However, the wifi internet access was terrible. 70% time is unable to get connection from. Other computer and iPhone. Called technical service five times and never get issue solved. Even it can be conceded to wifi sometimes, it only stay for few minutes. It is hard for people who has business need to rely on this hotel's internet access.

Great hotel with many sites and restaurants within walking distance. Great staff

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.

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.

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.

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.

I wish I can add more as i was most of the time out in business but it was a comfortable hotel.

The very first 5-star hotel in Turkey is this place. Definitely one of the best places to stay in Istanbul.

The hotel property itself was very nice. The staff was friendly and attentive. Our room was very nice but had a little cosmetic maintenance needed. We would stay there again.

Our stay at the Hilton Istanbul started with being upgraded to a corner room. We weren't told that the room was directly above very noisy construction that was on going 24/7. Even with a "white noise" machine and the fans in the room, the noise was overpowering. We let the manager know the problem, but the construction was by the city and the hotel was full. Our last day there was Easter Sunday. We were approved for a late check out, but when we returned to our room to complete packing for our flight, the room keys no longer worked. We were very upset. We met with the front desk manager who promised a refund of 1 night's lodging, but even with 3 emails to him and 1 to the equivalent of the "better business bureau" in Istanbul, we have received no response and no reimbursement. We prepaid our hotel expenses through Orbitz, so he would not give us a direct refund, nor pay for our taxi to the airport instead for some compensation.

Unfortunaly it seemed as if Orbitz had payed only for a standard room and not for an executive room with access to the exclusive lounge on the 14th floor with free breakfast, drinks, WLAN...what WE have booked and payed for. After a long discussion with the staff, they let us go to the lounge, but the room in the cellar could not be changed
