Within 20 meters from the hotel in an afternoon, a guy pretended to brush shoes and cut my ankel and threatened me for money. Same thing happened to another guest two days before. The trick was to drop his brush to get attention....

We spent three nights at this hotel and can only praise it in all its endeavours to please their guests. This hotel is modern but full of local artefacts and a great attention to detail. The pool is large and well cared for. Several requests were always answered promptly and efficiently(such as booking a restaurant, a taxi, etc).

We spent three nights at the Intercontinental Hotel on the 16th floor. The view of Bosphorus River is amazing we see ships of all sizes going past our room from cruise liners to little fishing boat. The service at the hotel has been amazing, very very good and we have enjoyed our stay here very much.

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
