“Locationlets it down”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Room good size, clean. Breakfast good and staff very friendly and helpful. The only drawback to this hotel is the location. It is out in the "suburbs", the hotel seemed to be in an industrial street and as such transport is needed to get to any of the attractions in Istanbul.

A typical Crown Plaza experience, good reliable service and standard large rooms. Good wi fi, great breakfast and excellent Spa, gym pool area. The location is much spoken about and it is in a Auto Service district, very close to the main Hotel strip...up a very steep hill. We found the taxi service excellent and quite well priced so the saving of staying here outweighed the expense of transport. Be warned though that non branded Taxis are a rip off. I would definitely return here I future.

Room Tip: Ask for non road facing for a quieter experience.

Quite a comfortable hotel. Rooms were a decent size, modern and clean. Staff were friendly and efficient (they even allowed us quite an early check-in which was very much appreciated). The lobby area and bar were on the small size but never really felt too crowded. The breakfast offered a wide range for selection and the pizza restaurant next door (still part of the hotel) was quiet good. Free wi-fi was appreciated and worked well. As many other reviewers have mentioned , the location is not in the most salubrious area - it was about a 15-20 min walk to Taksim Square and surrounded by automobile works. We stayed as part of a package tour so cannot determine if we received value for money.

This Crown Plaza is somewhat near the Convention Center, but not much else unless you seek out streets containing auto repair shops. But up the street is a great collection of little shops and restaurants and they can shuttle people to Taksim square and the Convention Ctr. There is also a trolley stop not too far away. The restaurant is certainly more than adequate, breakfast is quite extensive and the staff is most helpful. Rooms are reasonably quiet and well-maintained. It's a 60 TL taxi rise from the airport which means about $30.

Room Tip: There is an upper floor with concierge options that I did not investigate.

This is one of the best Crown Plazas I have ever stayed in.
Staff id unbelievably friendly, and attentive to guests needs. The concierge have a great knowledge of the area and what a traveler might need, which was a plus. never needed to use anymore guidance.
My kids loved the stay, and are actually insisting on going back there again soon.
If I ever travel to Istanbul again, this is the only place I will stay in.

I have nothing to complain about my room. We had a modern, clean, large size room with electrical blinds. Beds were comfortable and internet was working beautifully. Breakfast was fabulous with lots of fresh and delicious selections. It was perfectly ok inside the hotel. The only drawback is the location. The hotel is off the main road. located on a slanted hill so it was quite an exercise to climb up to walk to the other Istanbul tourist spots. I was also concerned on the neighbourhood of this hotel. It could be dangerous walking out at night as the roads were not brightly lit outside the hotel and it was quite a distance to the main road.

Reviewed 19 June 2014

The hotel room exceeded my expectations for a small business hotel in the western city centre part of Istanbul. I have chosen the location pricewise in combination with the 10 minute walking distance to the Lutfi Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Centre (however Google Maps is not showing the "hill climb and downhill run" to the venue ;-), but it is a quite nice physical exercise). The staff is friendly and the room conditions are clean and proper, especially the bathroom is well maintained. Coming to this point, the hotel disposes of a little Spa area which provides swimming, Turkish Hamam, steam sauna, a small exercise area and a couple of massage treatment rooms. The general impression is contrasting a little the nice room experience. But again, the treatments are of good quality and the staff is very friendly and skilful. Try the Thai-Massage treatment. Really relaxing. The breakfast team is a little slow in cleaning up the tables, especially on busy mornings and the coffee is awful. The freshly prepared hot dishes are of good quality. I have stayed three nights.

Room Tip: Take a corner room!
