Hotel in line with Holiday Inn standards

4 out of 5
by from London
Posted Jun 1, 2015
Pros: As decribed in my experience comments
Cons: Put a cover over the vent in bathroom to stop it operating like an intercom. Improve Wifi and replace daily sugar, tea and coffee.
Location: Get on a Tram and go central to the Mosques, Bizarre( 7 stops) Bosporus( 13 stops) Go the other way and you end up in the residential area.
The Hotel was what we expected from Holiday Inn as we have used them at other destinations and we were satisfied this time also with the room and Hotel facilities.The call to prayer was wonderful to listen to, morning, day and night and the tram stop was just outside the Hotel although the tram was always packed and I do mean packed so not nice for young children. The room was clean, the beds of good quality and the shower was of high quality.The downside of the room was poor wifi so laptop and television viewing was almost impossible.the bath panel had two screws sticking out by over 2 cm and could have caused a nasty cut when climbing in and out of the shower. I screwed them back in.There was what seemed like a a vent in the ceiling and from this we could hear voices of childen as well as mum and dad( not english speaking) from another room. I presume that they could also hear us! Very strange. We asked a receptionist for a nice restaurant nearby and the one she advised turned out to be the worst eating experience of the whole trip. Might have been a relation of hers. We turned to Trip Advisor who pointed us in the right direction to another restaurant where we had the best meal of the whole holiday.

Air conditioning only works half of the year!

If you're inlucky and are staying there when the aircon isn't on, your room will be kept at 28 degrees Celsius. It took the hotel staff 2 full days to give us a fan that we had asked for. Internet is also terrible. Positives, the breakfast is nice, as are the spa facilities (however these are mixed and proved problematic for religious reasons).

Clean affordable hotel, great access to transport

Pros: Friendliness of staff, location
Cons: The wifi connection at the hotel is terrible. In winter the AC is switched off, so temperature control is a problem
Location: Located across from the Pazartekke metro station. Carrefour has a supermarket nearby. Also a bunch of small restaurants within 10 mins walking.
Switched over to the Holiday Inn group after a bad experience with a previous booking. Staff was fantastic, room was clean, and location was excellent. The hotel staff were extremely kind and friendly, considering the locals don't speak much English. We were guided all the way from the best mode of transport to what sites to visit and when. Not once did they try and sell us the hotel package tours. Much appreciated! The room was clean as per Holiday Inn standards. Rooms were ready on arrival. Not much to say. The location of this hotel was the key. It's right across from the Metro station and commuting is super easy with trains running every 5 minutes or so. Taxis were easy to get too. The hotel is located close to a small market area where there are tons of cheap food options (unlike the tourist heavy Sultanahmet area where everything is overpriced)

Close to the tram

Near the ancient walls and the tram station. We used Metro and tram to get to the hotel and back to the airport. The metro and tram get crowded in the afternoon, but returning to the airport on Sunday am was easy. Stations are clean. Good and affordable restaurants are nearby.

Not the location we booked

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Tram stop right outside makes it very convenient to get around. Pool area is really nice
When looking for a hotel we were keen to stay in Taksim. So we found a Holiday Inn in the area and booked. Somewhere between the hotel page and final booking it had changed hotel and I did not notice this until the day we left. Fortunately the hotel was easy to get to and was actually pretty nice, just disappointed that we were in another part of town. We tried to explain this tot he hotel staff but they didn't have a clue what I was talking about so I gave up.

Istanbul City

Had a fantastic 8 nights here, hotel is on the main road into where all the sights and shopping is but far enough out not to be busy, 10 minutes into centre by tram and they run every 5 minutes. Hotel itself was excellent, very clean, excellent facilities, perfect combination between leisure and city hotel, staff were very friendly, especially hotel manager Imdat who went out of his way to ensure we were enjoying our stay. Would definitely go back.
