The Hilton hotel in Istanbul is an excellent choice for both leisure and business stay. It is easily accessible by car, taxi or public transport. I recommend this hotel to all visitors in Istanbul. The Bosphorus view from terrace bar, breakfast restaurant and from rooms is fantastic.

I was here on business for three days so had no choice where I stayed!

Saying all that, my stay was lovely. I'm not going to over egg the remarks at all, but the standards, service, breakfast was excellent.

The rooms were well furnished and what I'd expect of this rating of hotel. The rooms were spacious, with full facilities. Couldn't have asked for more.

I want to make special mention of the spa/health club. Best gym I've been into in a hotel for a long long time. Set in the peaceful surroundings of the spa complex, complete with music and aromatherapy, the gym is well equipped with modern fully functioning CV machine and a large scope of resistance machines, all in a spacious area. Couldn't fault it.

Location of the hotel - well with my limited knowledge of the city, it seemed to be well located. Easy walk to the Metro and a 30 lira taxi ride to the Horn.

I'd come here agin albeit there are a lot cheaper places around !!!

By far the worst Hilton experience ever, it's surprising that a seven star property does not provide more than 2 bottles of mineral water without charging for the 3rd in the hot summer of May. It's sad and I have never experienced these kind of stingy shameful policies. So my advice is that u carry your own bottle of water. If you are a normal indian who is used to tea atleast 2 times a day, this hotel is not for u as they will charge u for even a single sachet of creamer, overpriced non the less, so please carry your tea too. This sounds as bad as being in a service appartment, which in this case is probably your better bet.

Just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay here. The location is very good. Easy walking distance to Taksim and the Metro station. Though a bit of a hike down to a tram station. The property itself is impressive. The grounds were immaculate and the lobby inviting. Our room was on the third floor with a panoramic view of the Bosphorus, which was beautiful. The room was very clean with plenty of space. A solid product and what I would expect from a higher end Hilton property. The breakfast buffet was included in our room rate and it was delicious with plenty of variety for all tastes. Also ate at the Chinese restaurant, which was very good, albeit a little pricey with portions on the smaller side...There was a separate charge for steamed rice. The outside bar was heated and a very nice respite after a day of seeing the sights. We also used the fitness room frequently, which was well equipped. Enjoyed the Turkish bath experience, as well as the spa, though again a bit on the pricey side. We experienced outstanding service from everyone working at the hotel with almost all speaking English. We enjoyed our stay here and will be back whenever we return to Istanbul.

A most attractive Hilton hotel with excellent service, first rate buffet breakfast and, if you're lucky, wonderful views of the Bosphorus, day or night. The Taksim area has changed a lot in recent years as many former residents have moved to northern areas in the new and totally modern sections of the city. Still, one can walk to charming spots like Orhan Pamuk's "Museum of Innocence" (about 1.5 miles) and/or have a superlative cup of coffee at nearby Kahve Dunya (World Cafe). Taxis are cheap in Istanbul. So take one to the historical area where the things to see are inexhaustible and well documented in every travel guide. Whatever you visit --and make sure you see Aya Sofia, the Justinian Cisterns, Topkapi, the Blue Mosque-- don't miss the Archaelogical Museum --truly superb.

Room Tip: Ask for the Bosphorus side.

The hotel looks secluded at its entrance but it is actually not a far walk from taksim sq. It was quite safe to wander to nearby shopping / dining areas.

The service of the front desk / reception was nothing to shout about - in fact I found service rather aloof. No introduction/explanation was given for the very complete facilities the hotel had within its premises, including the health club, pool and tennis courts. The rooms were quite old fashioned (the furniture definitely needs updating) but the views from the terrace rooms compensated for the out-datedness.
