Not on the expected level
Luxury hotel, great location, greatest view on the Bosphorus. I got a great deal moneywise as well.
Staff very helpfull Everything perfect
The location, roof top terrace has stunning views, excellent music and friendly staff. Breakfast had a fantastic choice of foods. All staff were very helpful. Meze resturant food should be more rustic and more like a traditional Meze, though the food was tasty. I thought wine was a little expensive, or have a more varied price list.
nice hotel the smell of the hall and the reception area and the monet resturant when they serve the beakfast it smells like kitchen and when you get out trhe smell is still in your clothes!!
good facilities, although indoor pool was closed for renovations. View from bar on 14th floor is spectacular, although so are the prices at +-E10 for a local beer. Staff throughout the hotel were super. Location is too far out from the centre. None of the mains attractions are within walking distance apart from the ferry terminals.Restauraunt prices and poolside prices are verty expensive.
Luxury hotel, great service, superb location, excellent breakfast buffet
The Scenery From My Room and From the Summit Bar @ 14th Floor 1- Food was not good. 2- It is far from the sites you need to visit in Istanbul
The view from Top Bar Roof Terrace No transfer to and from airport. No breakfast included in price
Breakfast buffet was the same for 5 days .. Location is not near Taksim square (you need a taxi for tl 12)
Good location close to city, quiet environment, bosphorus view in some rooms No free wifi and extremely high charges to have access, rooms needs refurb to compete in the five star class
It was an amazing stay. Superb attention to detail, breakfast was amazing.
We nice hotel. Brand new, clean, nice staff. You will be charged for everything in the hotel except for the room (e.g. breakfast, bottle of water next to bed, etc.). Prices for the additional items are high (breakfast = app. EUR 25, bottle of water/coke = EUR 6)
The beds were amazingly comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Lobby was nice to sit in and relax after a hard day of sightseeing, and the free coffee was always welcome. I felt that the rooms were a little bit dark, and in fact the whole hotel was sub-optimally lit.
Rooms were nicely decorated and had many automated features. NOISE level was unbearable, I couldn't sleep all night due to SUPER LOUD music followed by a fight right outside my window. I ended up going to sleep around 6:00am. TV was nicely mounted on the wall, but hidden behind glass which made it unviewable; also TV size is too small for the room size, can't really see much from the bed. No breakfast facility on location.
Excellent concierge service, design, lovely spacious rooms, attention to detail (maids turn the pillow during turndown from "Welcome" to "Sweet dreams" :-) bar and restaurant, terrific breakfast, location. Average reception staff: they charged (not just authorized) my credit card on check-in without asking for my consent and for higher amount than the accomodation costs were. The overcharged amount (not much but still...) was given me back on check-out in turkish lira, hardly needed on your way out of the country. Not a disaster but surprising.
Breakfast was great! Location was great and so was cleanliness!
Modern Terrible terrible terrible view , extermly dark , modern design but not soo good. verrry dark again and dull, over-priced for a hotel with no view whatsoever.
The W Istanbul is centrally located on the European side in Istanbul, with several shops and restaurants just around the corner, Nisantasi is also a short 10 minute walk away (exquisite shopping). Vogue, a rooftop restaurant and bar, is also a short 2 minute walk away. The hotel is clean, trendy and very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and service was excellent (sans the mini-bar items that I never used finding their way onto my check-out bill, which the staff swiftly removed). Would highly recommend the hotel to any solo travelers or couples. I would have liked for there to have been a salon and for the gym to have offered yoga classes (or any other sort of fitness class).
I'd like stile and romantic design of hotel breakfast was so pour
I mostly liked everything
Location The room was not user-friendly. It looked like a party hotel designed for vary young people.
all staff were very helpfull and easy to communicate with them in english quick survice bathroom area wasnt that comfortable, shower only with out a bathtop wasnt enough.
Location and design of the hotel and friendly staff. A minor thing, but the cleaning crew was a little noisy and you can hear them in other rooms next to you.
close to the business district prices, and staff attitudes
good breakfast only. Old hotel, old furniture, rooms not clean well, you can find better hotels with the same rate.
Rooms are ok I had to change my room because the bathroom was full of water after a single bath, they made me wait for a long time like that
Breakfast was great, but thats about the only good thing i can say. Wifi was way too unstable. Had to visit the common room in front of the elevator to get connected. Smoking from next room was passed onto our room making our stay painful. Staff didn't even ask whether we were smokers or not
The room was good and clean and well appointed. Spa was brilliant. Breakfast very good.overall a very good stay. The roof bar was shut renovations and the oher bar seemed to lack choice. But minor point as otherwise excellent stay.
Our room was definitelly looking "tired",maybe some rooms have been refurbished and we were unlucky.
Hotel in very nice place - middle of the city, metrobus (speed city bus) in 100 meter to hotel. Professional staff.
Free wireless internet and breakfast. The glass wall in the shower room was too small. I had to scoot myself on the shower side, or else the bathroom would be all wet.
good breakfast poor sanitation of the pool
The comfort, the view and location as well as the excellent services and facilities
the relaxation and the luxasry
The most terrible thing is that this hotel does make change of money from EUR to TL, and does not change from TL to EUR. It is really terrible because they leave you with a bunch of TL in your pocket to use it nowhere. I felt totally dissapointed and cheated.
I've stayed in many hotels in Istanbul, but Çırağan Palace - is the most luxurious hotel in the city.
brekfast, hamam, and the pool for this price I was expecting beter view from the room and a biger room. Algthough not far away from the city center, because of trafic problems, we had to travel (always with taxi) half an hour to and from the hotel. It was very expencive. For example, one extra botle of water 10 euro in the room! But the had also to smal ones for free
Absolutely astonishing historical building, great view, location, excellent food. Had to wait for couple of hours upon check-in until the room is ready.
The quality of the staff. The fact that the greeter remembered our names is amazing. so is the location and view. That I did not have enough time to enjoy all of the facilities.
I liked the location by the Bosphoros. Very scenic. I liked the setting of the Burga restaurant located in the adjoining former Ottoman palace. The concierge staff were very helpful in suggesting nice restaurants to go to. The doorman was also very helpful in getting me and wife a taxi and in giving the driver the needed instructions. None
It is the most impressive hotel I have ever stayed in terms of luxurious hospitality. The unavailability of what I understand are a wide range of Turkish wines by the glass, in better restaurants in Dublin one can now avail of wine by the glass of up to 90 types. The bottles are held in a vacuum cabinet, for my wife and I to try a red and white Turkish wine with our dinner in the Tugra would have been nice.
The serenity of the waterfront facilities, dedication and professionalism of staff, excellent restaurants on the premises (with Bosphorus view). Decoration in rooms high-quality but rather stale. Even if I had my room at a discount I found it rather mean that not even continental breakfast was included (less value for money than another Istanbul hotel I stayed at earlier in the same sojourn)
This is a very nice small suite hotel. It is quiet, modern, well-kept, well-equipped & well-located. The larger suites are a good fit for families, the smaller suites are perfect for business. The very nice restaurant where breakfast (A nice Continental) takes place should have English menus.
Breakfast was too poor.
the staff very friendly and helpful, room clean and quite the room little small bathroom door have no lock with family i have no privacy they don't have a business center the loopy is very small also, the break fast too small and they repeat the stuff every day i get bored of it
Location is very elegant no
Comfortable and spacious. This apartment hotel provides a large sitting area, with desk as well as a walk-in robe and small kitchen area. Very good bathroom. While the location is not so central, this provides an opportunity to see another side of Istanbul. Two buses go up the very steep one-way street and returning via the 'teleferik' was fun. The rate offered via booking was good as I booked some months in advance. I would stay here again. An iron and ironing board would be a nice addition. I'd also have like the option not to have clean towels every day.
Beautiful view over the bosporos strait Ordered a king size bed in a non smoking room, got twin beds in a smoking room...
Plaza Hotel offers everything I need: a warm welcome, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, free internet, attractive bathroom amenities, etc..
it is in the center breakfast
Pleasant staff, comfortable room --in short, a very good experience despite the short stay no
very good accomodation,clean, 5 star hotel, a little bit far from center, some of the personal not at the hotel standards (not so helpfull)
The location to the city centre. Also the basicness of small lobby and free wireless all over the hotel. That's it nothing special about it more if I go to Turkey again I will try another hotel.
Good upscale hotel with everything you would expect of this grade No hotel guide....how to set alrm on phones etc etc
At its best this is a four star hotel. It was mentioned in our booking that we will have complementary breakfast / snacks at the executive lounge, however, during our stay the executive lounge was closed due to renovation without any alternative for the complementary snacks / drinks.
Ironing service was extremely quick no
This hotel is very good and the staff were excellent, very polite and courteous. Although its not exactly central, but by taxi it took 10 minutes to many shopping center or to city center. Rooms and common areas are extremely clean. The complimentary fruits along with the named welcome card upon arrival was absolutely touching. The free Wi-Fi is very fast . Good value for money. Enjoyed my stay very much.
That was a normal hotel , I dont belive that it was a five stars hotel , if I new the hotel is like that I wouldn`t go there. The stuff could not speak english , there was no kettle inside the room and the mini bar was far too expencive. I Paid by Euro but when I went there they charge by turkish lire(which I am not happy about it)
The good location in town Poor service and so so rooms considering the 5 start rating. To me moreof a 3 star.
clean, comfortable, good price, good location
Thank you for the good service
communication with the staff was almost impossible
staff was excellent....
Hotel staff were very helpful
Everything was fine..
The room is just as it is shown in the pictures. However, the room was so hot and humid that you could't tolerate the climate and the air conditioning was not helping anything at all! Hotel's location was very hard to find for almost every taxi driver and it was not possible to walk from your hotel to any place. Simply the hotel was in the middle of nowehre in the hills. Overall ot is not worth to even try. The staff are quite friendly and polite and the room's cleanness is acceptable.
