Too far to travel?

Pros: The views
The hotel is excellent, as are the staff and the views across the Bosphorus are outstanding. However, to get into the Old City is too much of a struggle, with a 1 1/2km walk to the nearest tram terminal.

Cool respite from the city madness

We took a Bosphorus view suite which had a guest toilet and another full bathroom, a separate sitting room and magnificent views. Ask for a high room as we got a 3rd floor suite (it still had lovely views) before being moved to the 10th floor (where the views were even more amazing) on our second night . The Conrad is quite a distance away from many of the tourist must-sees and the terrible traffic makes the sights even more difficult to reach by taxi. However, ten minutes down the road, you can catch a ferry to Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus and then catch the ferry on the adjoining quay to Eminonu at Sultanahmet where most of the sights are located. Takes just a half an hour in total, costs a few Turkish lira and is a wonderful way to travel. The Conrad itself is excellent. The food and drink on the 14th floor bar is pricy but the view is spectacular. The rooms, bathrooms and beds are very comfortable and spacious - another in our party had an executive room and it was very nice too. It's a relaxing haven away from the busy, buzzy, wonderful pandemonium of Istanbul.

In the heart of the city

Everything you can possibly want is in Istanbul and this hotel is in the heart of it. Easy walking distance to a lot of places but be warned about the taxis they will try and rip you off, ask the fare first.

Great location but poor service...

The hotel was in an excellent location, close to the up and coming area of Besiktas and a short metro ride to the historical sites. The hotel was also spotlessly clean- however the positive ends there. Upon checking in we were told that our reservation did not include breakfast when it clearly did. The hotel refused to contact [...] and I had to go to the business centre of the hotel to access my account to prove breakfast was included! The staff at reception would not let me use their PC and refused to acknowlegde they had the booking wrong! Eventually they conceded breakfast was included but I did not get an apology. To add to this negative experience, I went to use the Business Centre again to check in for my return flight( at other 5* hotels in Istanbul this is happily done by the Concergie but not at the Conrad which charges a foutune for the internet) and I was ignored for about 5 minutes at the desk while the member of staff was on a phonecall. Again no apology and I was made to feel like a burden as opposed to a valued guest. Every morning at breakfast we had to explain that breakfast was included as this information had not been passed on- this got tiresome! Although the rooms were well furnished and very clean, I would never stay at the Conrad again- poor customer service.

Edel, komfortabel und zentral

Unser Aufenthalt war klasse! 3 Nächte ohne Frühstück, haben zusätzlich kostenloses Bett gekriegt und der Service der Angestellten war 1-A!! Besonderen Dank an Murat von Abteilung Reservation, welcher sehr sehr hilfsbereit war und motiviert war, Auskunft über Zimmerpreise, Upgrades etc. zu geben! Aber auch alle anderen Angestellten waren stets freundlich, angenehm! Werde beim nächsten Istanbul Trip definitiv(!!) wieder das Conrad Hotel aussuchen.
