The staff was friendly, the views of the Bosphorus from both our room and the top floor bar and restaurant were spectacular. Bar drinks were reasonably priced. The entrance hall is attractive. However even with the IHG credit card and paid Ambassador status we were for some reason denied concierge lounge entry

This is one of the best InterContinental's I've stayed in. It had numerous amenities and was in excellent condition. I loved how close it was to taxsim square and to the markets just around the corner. The staff was the best part of the whole experience. They really contributed to making me feel welcome and appreciated as a guest.

I am a platinum ambassador member and Intercontinental Istanbul has been the best global Intercontinental experience I've had--by far. Excellent, friendly, efficient staff like Tolga at the front desk and Erdinc in the executive lounge who address guests by name and attend to their special travel needs. Stunning views of the Bosphorus from guest room and the lounge on the...

This was our first visit, but third in an Intercontinental hotel. The service was friendly from all staff; attentive as usual. The Brasserie Restaurant has an excellent breakfast with tremendous selection of Western fare and Turkish specialties.

This hotel is a perfect stay in Istanbul. It is less than 100 meters Taksim square and may be less than 15 minutes from Sultanahmet by train. Also very close to Kabatas (port) where you can take cruises of Bosphorus. Amazing view from hotel's top floor restaurant, clean rooms and nice staff. Excellent breakfast menu. Very safe.

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.
