My husband and I wanted to spend a romantic weekend in Istanbul, in our home city and as the days were very limited, did not want to risk any disappointment and chose Hyatt Regency Istanbul as we were sure everything would be perfect in return of the high rates we were to pay. We could not have been more wrong: it's true, the location of the hotel is perfect, the view of Bosphorus (though only from a limited number of rooms) is mesmerizing, the room is spacious, the spa is excellent.... but all the rest is just deceiving.... Maybe if our expectations were not so high, we would not be so much deceived but they were, rightfully I guess.... First of all, there are only 2 restaurants in the hotel: one italian (closed on Sundays) and one open buffet, which serves a la carte if the hotel is half empty, which was our case. And if you're doomed to a la carte, it's just light sandwiches like lobby bar serving... The room service is extremely poor, in a country that can be easily defined as land of plenty for fruits, in september, as season fruits they can serve only apples and bananas. You have to pay 20 Euro per 24 hours of "cabled" Internet, no wireless in the rooms, nor anywhere else except for the lobby; the television set dates end of 1990's if not early 1990's. As for service, the personnel could really not care less for the well being of the clients, they really do not care at all... you have to call them several times to get something fixed in your room... Our experience was really a lousy one, I hope they will fix these problems soon....
