“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

I stayed in the hotel in new year, its a good hotel in Besiktas. The lounge at the the top of hotel provides a scenic view of the Bosphorus and the city, I could clearly see all the major landmarks from the lounge. Enjoyed the sunset in the lounge. It is conveniently locate near the all the public transportation like waterways / ferry route to the main city area, tram and bus services. Also commute via taxi cost around 35 Lira to the main city area which is decently priced.

Even though they are refurnishing the Hotel we had a very pleasant stay in june 2014. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Modern and stylish rooms. Good technology in the hotel, TV, USB, wifi etc.

It is located in one of the better areas of Istanbul and not very far to the city centre. Traffic is always a hassle though.

Very nice panoramic view from the upper floors with bar and restaurant. On 15th floor there is a very nice executive lounge with stunning view.

Room Tip: Probably the newer ones. And higher up for the view.

The Conrad brand is supposed to be the pinnacle among Hilton Hotels. We did not find this to be true in Istanbul. The Conrad's location is very inconvenient for tourism to the most popular sights (Topkapi Palace, Aya Sophia, the Grand Bazaar). To reach the the Conrad requires a taxi ride and the traffic is Istanbul is terrible. The streetcar is faster, but then you have to hike about a mile and then up a very steep hill to reach the hotel. The Conrad is in a residential area, and if you don't want to dine at the hotel, there are no restaurants nearby. The hotel itself has a grandiose lobby, but you have to pass your belongings through an x-ray machine to enter, which raised security concerns we did not even have until we saw it. The Conrad Istanbul promotes its Bosphorus view rooms. The first room we were assigned had a view of a busy major street and a sliver of the Bosphorus. We had to have the manager personally come to our room to allow us to change to a better view (and he argued with us initially). We were not impressed by the "new" room decor post-renovation. It is the commonplace contemporary, neutral palette style that could be seen in any major city. The one thing that we can rave about at the Conrad Istanbul is the Executive Lounge, and especially the terrace. If you are a Hilton Honors member, or have an unlimited budget, the Executive Lounge gives you access to the best views in the hotel, with the Bosphorus and the old city of Istanbul spread out before you. You can enjoy watching the river traffic and sip wine and nibble on snacks. As nice as the terrace is, I would recommend staying in the Sultanahmet District if you are in Istanbul for sightseeing.

I recently stayed at the Conrad Istanbul, whilst I attended a conference. The quality of the hotel, my room and conference facility were all excellent. The highlight for me was the outstanding service from all staff at the hotel, and their attention to detail to my requests and needs. Excellent visit, will definitely be back again.

Peaceful amongst noisy Istanbul and yet very close to main venues and very well served by bus, metro and taxi. Large rooms, full of light and very well maintained. I like large lobbies where one can sit and feel in a true hotel. This Conrad isn't the best but it is confortable and spacious.

Stayed on two occasions whilst undertaking an INSIGHT tour.
Our first room had a view of a building site whereas in the second occasion we had a partial view of the Bossphorus interrupted by the curve of the hotel.
Our room was large and comfortable. breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices including eggs cooked to order. reception staff helpful .
The best feature of this hotel is however the 14th floor bar and retaurant. To sip a cold efes beer and watch the sun go down over Istanbul is one of lifes real delights. We also ate in the retaurant and found both the food and Turkish wine very good.
the only negative is that the hotel charges for Wifi which in this day and age is no more than price gouging although typical of American chains!
