“Great business hotel for a short stay”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Stayed for a few days business meetings and was very happy with the hotel. The design of the hotel is based around art theme and has well designed guest rooms, very comfortable with all 5 star amenities you might need. The staff was super friendly all around, internet worked well for me and the highlight was a cocktail party on the heliport and watch the bustling city around us. Location might not be as great for exploring the city though and the trip to the airport takes virtually forever.

Stayed for 4 nights whilst on a conference. Great Hotel with all the facilities you could need (including a massive games area and the biggest pool I have ever seen in a Hotel)

Great staff, amazing shower in the bathroom.

Nothing to fault.

I had a very nice 4 night stay in the Point Hotel Barbaros. Istanbul itself is a huge city with lots of districts and can be difficult to navigate if you dont speak Turkish, therefore I wouldnt recommend the location if you are planning on sight seeing in Old Istanbul. The hotel itself is in the Besiktas district of Istanbul so is convenient for business travellers and also handy if you want to go on a tour down the Bosphorus. But in terms of the hotel itself, the facilities are excellent and the only reason why I have rated it 4 and not 5 is I feel the food is a little average and overpriced in the restaurants. The rooms are large, modern and very comfortable with excellent bathrooms, beds with pillow menus and thoughtful touches like an ipod alarm dock with CD of lullabies for those who cant sleep. They also leave a turkish good luck charm as a little gift, nuts, bottled water and a decent range of toiletries. Service is very good, i had the business service which allowed me 2 items of ironing each day, access to medical staff if required etc. The WIFI was good throughout the hotel and the gym and pool were excellent. The hotel also has an entire floor dedicated to games consoles and you can order playstations and wiis from room service. Its a very modern and very good hotel and my only negative is perhaps the food in the restaurants is a little overpriced and could be better.

My stay in the amazing Point Hotel Barbaros while being for a 3 days trip in Istanbul was perfect!
The hotel is really amazing...great staff...beautiful and very comfortable rooms...they are very clean and spacious...when we arrived to the hotel we found on the pillows a traditional Turkish good luck charm as a souvenir from the hotel...it was quite a nice gesture....the breakfast and dinner at the hotel are very varied and the food is really good and you can enjoy your breakfast or dinner with a view on the Bosphorus bridge ....on our 2nd day when entering the room in the afternoon...another sweet surprise was waiting for us on our pillows ... cute box of yummy walnuts...it was so nice ! The hotel has wifi connection in all areas...whether in the lobby or in the rooms so you can be connected to the world easily...Well all I can say is that I had a very nice enjoyable stay in this hotel...I would recommend it to everyone visiting Istanbul...and I would be back for sure on my next trip to Istanbul! Keep up the good work Point Hotel Barbaros! You are The Best!

This hotel is an excellent stay in Istanbul. The staff are extremely friendly and the General Manager is always around. Rooms overlooking the Bosporus are large, with very comfortable beds. Bathrooms with proper rainshowers are excellent. Room service whether its food or laundry is very fast and profesional. Breakfast on the 18th floor overlooking Istanbul has everything that one would expect from a good hotel, for more privacy you can ask to enter the executive floor on the 11th. A short drive from the Bosporus (Besiktas) area with small shops and historical buildings. The city centre is also not far, the old Bazar takes 10min to visit. I would definately make it back to the Point hotel. I felt really well.

Stayed here for 4days/3nights on a business trip. Our conference was being held in the same hotel, so it was very convenient.

Room and bathroom was spacious, clean and modern. Staff was also very courteous. My only comment is that only the receptionists are fluent with English. The guy who calls the taxi for us had to call the receptionist to translate to the taxi driver where we are going. But no biggie, the stay was very comfortable and buffet lunch was extensive and good!

Would probably stay here if given the chance to travel back to Istanbul on business trip. But will definitely look elsewhere for personal travel for proximity to tourist sites and a little bit more luxury.
