I have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world. Of all of them, I still fondly remember my time at this hotel...and it has been a while. Tip: Get a room on the higher floors to enjoy the view. The bed was heavenly! Looking forward to returning soon...

Excellent location, great staff especially Serap. Wonderful big rooms. Only thing is rooms need more updating, a bit old. And cleaning of bathrooms should be better. Location is close to walking street in taksim as well as the nice historic areas.

The Intercontinental is a large hotel located near the Taksim Square. This hotel is what you would expect from the Intercontinental brand. A bit pricey, but the location makes up for it.the hotel charges (16 Turkish Lira, about £4) for a cup of Turkish tea, whilst outside in the park next to the hotel it's only 1 Lira (25p). A...

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.
