“Best hotel in Istanbul-Bad food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

I stayed in the hotel for the celebration of New Years Eve. The room was luxurius. Wonderful view of Bosphorus, comfortable bed, great bathroom. Espresso maschine was a nice touch to all the comfort. Internal pool with heated floor was one of the hotels most appreciated facilities. Hotel staff was very polite and ready to serve your every need. But... New Years Eve Dinner at the price of 160 euro per person was not as you would have expected. Awful soup, cold turkey probably prepared many days ago. Nothing of the wonderful turkish dishes. In conclusion nothing worthing 160 euro and most of all nothing worth eating. So stay in this great hotel but by all means do not eat there.

Room Tip: Choose at least deluxe room with bosphorus view

What a great hotel! The interior is modern and luxurious. Waking up to the view of the bosphorus was absolutely unforgettable. The breakfast was good - not the best ever. Very close to taksim square so. It's very convenient and the atmosphere is great! Will definitely stay there again.

Everything was great, the Interactive room, the service the location, breakfast, but most of all the helpful staff at the front disk especially Mr. Efecan, the Assistant Front Disk Manager, this Gentleman is an asset to CVK Hotels and obviously his got what it takes to MANAGE A WORLD CLASS HOTEL CHAIN, he went out of his way just to be helpful and courteous, God bless him and all the staff.

I do not recommend this hotel to anyone! It's utterly horrible. The service is really bad and the people working there are the rudest! The reception could care less, the cafe at the reception didn't understand anything he brought a cake for my son and took a knife from another table to offer it to us without plates! The lady who showed me to the apartment (I stayed at the residence side) did not explain anything about the apartment and she asked me where to insert the key! I told her I don't know I don't work here! So I called reception and they said I should've went with someone from reception and not guest relations! How the hell am I supposed to know that ! I didn't ask her to show me the room, the receptionist did! Another thing, the AC was not working for 2 nights, again the receptionist could care less. They tried to fix it I'll give them that but they tried 3 times and the AC was still not working. So I went to speak to them and they said we will send someone to fix it, I told the receptionist you already did that 3 times and it still isn't working, so change my apartment. She said sorry we don't have anything available, I told her I don't care! I did not pay this much to stay at an apartment without AC! So I told her I want to speak to the manager she said ok. Had to wait 1/2 hour for the manager ! Then they upgraded us and changed our apartment. The manager was nice and understanding, he's the only person who was nice at that hotel, him and the guy who carried our luggage.
Another issue, the roof pool was supposed to be open but it wasn't. And the covered pool was not fun for the kids at all cuz they had to wear swimming caps and it was cold! So I took my kids to another hotel to swim! They had so many rules but when it came to the type of people who were at the hotel they apparently were ok when people would go down to the reception and drink tea wearing their pjs and bathroom slippers.
Not my idea of a five star hotel.
In my opinion, they are not ready to open, they need a lot of adjustments and maybe some customer service seminars for their employees who seem to hate all nationalities.
Finally, I will never stay there again. Ever.
Not worth it, they made my whole trip miserable.

We spent 3 nights at the amazing CVK Resort Park Bosphorus. Newly opened - 9 months - the hotel offers an amazing experience of a 5 star in Turkey. One of the best hotels I've been to so far.

Pros:
- Great location at 2 min walk from Taksim Square
- Amazing view on the Bosphorus. Even if you don't have a chance to get a room with Bosphorus view, the cafe terrace at the lobby level & the swimming pool located at the top deck offer fabulous view over the Bosphorus
- Amenities are unbelievably outstanding. We had the chance to test the Turskish Hammam experience. A must do
- Rooms are big enough and super confortable. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi in the room with a clear glass enable overlooking the room & TV.
- Gym & Tennis Table areas are big enough and well equipped.
- 2 Swimming Pools, One covered and another one at the top deck with stunning view on the Bosphorus.

Cons:
- Hotel expensive compared to other hotels in the region but definitely worth the price.
- Food & Beverages and overpriced - Shisha at the terrace costs $50, coffee for around $25-30
- Spas & other treatment expensive - $250 for 1 hour massage
- Hotel is not 100% completed, hence you might fine areas uncompleted or with work in progress around the hotel

In summary, we would definitely recommend this hotel for any stay in Istanbul. Despite the several cons highlighted, being there assure you unforgetable memories.
