Breakfast buffet was the same for 5 days .. Location is not near Taksim square (you need a taxi for tl 12)
It was an amazing stay. Superb attention to detail, breakfast was amazing.
The view from Top Bar Roof Terrace No transfer to and from airport. No breakfast included in price
Staff very helpfull Everything perfect
good facilities, although indoor pool was closed for renovations. View from bar on 14th floor is spectacular, although so are the prices at +-E10 for a local beer. Staff throughout the hotel were super. Location is too far out from the centre. None of the mains attractions are within walking distance apart from the ferry terminals.Restauraunt prices and poolside prices are verty expensive.
Luxury hotel, great location, greatest view on the Bosphorus. I got a great deal moneywise as well.
Luxury hotel, great service, superb location, excellent breakfast buffet
Not on the expected level
nice hotel the smell of the hall and the reception area and the monet resturant when they serve the beakfast it smells like kitchen and when you get out trhe smell is still in your clothes!!
Good location close to city, quiet environment, bosphorus view in some rooms No free wifi and extremely high charges to have access, rooms needs refurb to compete in the five star class
The location, roof top terrace has stunning views, excellent music and friendly staff. Breakfast had a fantastic choice of foods. All staff were very helpful. Meze resturant food should be more rustic and more like a traditional Meze, though the food was tasty. I thought wine was a little expensive, or have a more varied price list.
The Scenery From My Room and From the Summit Bar @ 14th Floor 1- Food was not good. 2- It is far from the sites you need to visit in Istanbul
the landscape from the window! the rooom was too small and hasn t balcony!
room design and bath cleaneness. iam thankful to the hotel since they upgraded me to better rooms ( coonecting rooms) no swimming pools.
There were a few mixups with staff not understanding room service/bar order
Nice location directly on the Bosphorus in Ortakoy - great night life in the neighborrough
The view at the Bosphorus from the terrace of the hotel. Due to the traffic it's very hard to reach the hotel between 3 and 6 pm. It took us several times about 2 hours to get from downtown (blue Mosk, topaki palace, bazaar, etc) back at the hotel.
the coolness of the ambient
Excelant location , clean, quaite, Price of the hotel , no promotins
Great Stafd very helpful with giving advice and arranging transportation. Great Turkish Bath, hot tub and steam room
looking to the bridge and ortakoy camii room's bathroom
Very close to Bosphorous and lively cafe, restaurant, street market area. Good breakfast. Small room. Long way to airport. Traffic sometimes came to a standstill outside.
Location and design of the hotel and friendly staff. A minor thing, but the cleaning crew was a little noisy and you can hear them in other rooms next to you.
The W Istanbul is centrally located on the European side in Istanbul, with several shops and restaurants just around the corner, Nisantasi is also a short 10 minute walk away (exquisite shopping). Vogue, a rooftop restaurant and bar, is also a short 2 minute walk away. The hotel is clean, trendy and very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and service was excellent (sans the mini-bar items that I never used finding their way onto my check-out bill, which the staff swiftly removed). Would highly recommend the hotel to any solo travelers or couples. I would have liked for there to have been a salon and for the gym to have offered yoga classes (or any other sort of fitness class).
Excellent concierge service, design, lovely spacious rooms, attention to detail (maids turn the pillow during turndown from "Welcome" to "Sweet dreams" :-) bar and restaurant, terrific breakfast, location. Average reception staff: they charged (not just authorized) my credit card on check-in without asking for my consent and for higher amount than the accomodation costs were. The overcharged amount (not much but still...) was given me back on check-out in turkish lira, hardly needed on your way out of the country. Not a disaster but surprising.
I mostly liked everything
Location The room was not user-friendly. It looked like a party hotel designed for vary young people.
Modern Terrible terrible terrible view , extermly dark , modern design but not soo good. verrry dark again and dull, over-priced for a hotel with no view whatsoever.
I'd like stile and romantic design of hotel breakfast was so pour
Rooms were nicely decorated and had many automated features. NOISE level was unbearable, I couldn't sleep all night due to SUPER LOUD music followed by a fight right outside my window. I ended up going to sleep around 6:00am. TV was nicely mounted on the wall, but hidden behind glass which made it unviewable; also TV size is too small for the room size, can't really see much from the bed. No breakfast facility on location.
We nice hotel. Brand new, clean, nice staff. You will be charged for everything in the hotel except for the room (e.g. breakfast, bottle of water next to bed, etc.). Prices for the additional items are high (breakfast = app. EUR 25, bottle of water/coke = EUR 6)
The beds were amazingly comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Lobby was nice to sit in and relax after a hard day of sightseeing, and the free coffee was always welcome. I felt that the rooms were a little bit dark, and in fact the whole hotel was sub-optimally lit.
Breakfast was great! Location was great and so was cleanliness!
all staff were very helpfull and easy to communicate with them in english quick survice bathroom area wasnt that comfortable, shower only with out a bathtop wasnt enough.
The room was good and clean and well appointed. Spa was brilliant. Breakfast very good.overall a very good stay. The roof bar was shut renovations and the oher bar seemed to lack choice. But minor point as otherwise excellent stay.
Hotel in very nice place - middle of the city, metrobus (speed city bus) in 100 meter to hotel. Professional staff.
good breakfast only. Old hotel, old furniture, rooms not clean well, you can find better hotels with the same rate.
close to the business district prices, and staff attitudes
Our room was definitelly looking "tired",maybe some rooms have been refurbished and we were unlucky.
Breakfast was great, but thats about the only good thing i can say. Wifi was way too unstable. Had to visit the common room in front of the elevator to get connected. Smoking from next room was passed onto our room making our stay painful. Staff didn't even ask whether we were smokers or not
Free wireless internet and breakfast. The glass wall in the shower room was too small. I had to scoot myself on the shower side, or else the bathroom would be all wet.
Rooms are ok I had to change my room because the bathroom was full of water after a single bath, they made me wait for a long time like that
good breakfast poor sanitation of the pool
This is a very nice small suite hotel. It is quiet, modern, well-kept, well-equipped & well-located. The larger suites are a good fit for families, the smaller suites are perfect for business. The very nice restaurant where breakfast (A nice Continental) takes place should have English menus.
Location is very elegant no
the staff very friendly and helpful, room clean and quite the room little small bathroom door have no lock with family i have no privacy they don't have a business center the loopy is very small also, the break fast too small and they repeat the stuff every day i get bored of it
Breakfast was too poor.
Comfortable and spacious. This apartment hotel provides a large sitting area, with desk as well as a walk-in robe and small kitchen area. Very good bathroom. While the location is not so central, this provides an opportunity to see another side of Istanbul. Two buses go up the very steep one-way street and returning via the 'teleferik' was fun. The rate offered via booking was good as I booked some months in advance. I would stay here again. An iron and ironing board would be a nice addition. I'd also have like the option not to have clean towels every day.
At its best this is a four star hotel. It was mentioned in our booking that we will have complementary breakfast / snacks at the executive lounge, however, during our stay the executive lounge was closed due to renovation without any alternative for the complementary snacks / drinks.
it is in the center breakfast
Beautiful view over the bosporos strait Ordered a king size bed in a non smoking room, got twin beds in a smoking room...
very good accomodation,clean, 5 star hotel, a little bit far from center, some of the personal not at the hotel standards (not so helpfull)
Good upscale hotel with everything you would expect of this grade No hotel guide....how to set alrm on phones etc etc
Ironing service was extremely quick no
Plaza Hotel offers everything I need: a warm welcome, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, free internet, attractive bathroom amenities, etc..
Pleasant staff, comfortable room --in short, a very good experience despite the short stay no
The location to the city centre. Also the basicness of small lobby and free wireless all over the hotel. That's it nothing special about it more if I go to Turkey again I will try another hotel.
This hotel is very good and the staff were excellent, very polite and courteous. Although its not exactly central, but by taxi it took 10 minutes to many shopping center or to city center. Rooms and common areas are extremely clean. The complimentary fruits along with the named welcome card upon arrival was absolutely touching. The free Wi-Fi is very fast . Good value for money. Enjoyed my stay very much.
Very friendly and welcoming staff. I had a nice and big room with a desk (room 612, last floor). Amazing view direction west, on the city and the Bosphorus. Very good breakfasts and friendly staff (in company of a friendly visiting seagull on the window ledge!). Free wifi access (sometimes hesitant in the room but very efficient in the lobby). I guess it is worth the price for Istanbul but I wish it would be slightly less expensive to come more often!
excellent location; superb views from restaurant and balconies overlooking city and bosphorous;
The area is one of my favoites, close to the Bosphorus (for the views and crzy nightlife) and Bebek area. Hotel staff were very friendly and breakfast was fair with satisfying spectacular view on the Bosphorus They were not flexible when asked about extending our time of check-out Our flight was at midnight and we asked for check out at 6:00 or 8:00 pm for half-board. Our demand was refused. This is an extra effort they could have allowed since our room was available...
The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The views from the breakfast room and terrace as well as from our room balcony were incredible.
Reasonably sized and clean rooms. Friendly staff. Good buffet breakfast included in room rate. Pleasant rooftop restaurant with excellent view. Limited English language skills for some front office staff. Would prefer they controlled the birds in outdoor breakfast area more effectively.
Location on the Bosphorus,close to ferries, walking distance for Ortakoy restaurants, next to large park. View from room and terrace restaurant spectacular. Food very good.
The room is just as it is shown in the pictures. However, the room was so hot and humid that you could't tolerate the climate and the air conditioning was not helping anything at all! Hotel's location was very hard to find for almost every taxi driver and it was not possible to walk from your hotel to any place. Simply the hotel was in the middle of nowehre in the hills. Overall ot is not worth to even try. The staff are quite friendly and polite and the room's cleanness is acceptable.
It has a good location Staf were unhelpful, E.G. we asked for the airconditioning to be turned on and they said, 'open the window'
Close to Bosphorus cruise and Ortakoy District only???? The hotel should be 3 or 2 stars not 5 stars was not good at all , and there is no ac and it was only fan and the Furniture very old and not Comfortable at all
Good value for money. Helpful and friendly. We had problems with the temperature regulation - it was impossibe the switch off the heating.
