    The room was wonderful, very close to Takism Square and the breakfast does not lack anything you would want.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hyatt Istanbul

    Just great...

    from

    We were looking for a relaxing long weekend with the kids (8 & 6) and the Hyatt gave us just that. The turkish bath works from 7-3 for women and from 3-9 for men. I decided to go for a scrub and took our two girls with me. It was wonderful, relaxing and fun! We had so many soapy bubbles the girls and I giggled and giggled, it was lovely.

    In general, the bar lounges are very comfortable, the food is excellent and we had great service from all the friendly waiters and staff making our trip a very relaxing one.

    Fantastic haven in the bustle of Istanbul

    from

    Just back from a 4-night stay in this hotel. Stayed in a Regency Club room, which benefits from its own lounge on the 8th floor, with complimentary soft drinks and (for a couple of hours each day) free snacks and wine etc. We found the service to be excellent, the staff were very attentive (sometimes crossing the line into overeager, particularly at breakfast.

    The room was excellent, well-furnished and clean. I agree with other comments that the price of food and drink are over the top. We had a meal in the Italian 'Spatzio' restaurant - an average bottle of wine was over 40 and the (good but not wonderful) meal cost over 125 for two of us. The next night we found a good Indian restauarnt 5 minutes away where the whole meal cost less than one bottle of wine in the Hyatt! But overall, a fabulous place to stay.

    High marks for the Hyatt

    from

    Everything about this hotel is superb including the decor and sheer comfort of the place. A special mention for the breakfast which I would say is "second to none" with most bread and pastries (what a superb selection) being home-made. The staff are all first class, very attentive and friendly and no doubt whoever is tutoring them in Customer Care is doing an exceptionally good job. One complaint, "extras" are very expensive, unnecessarily so in my opinion. For example the sparkling water is the equivalent of about 9 (sterling) a bottle. The same bottle in a restaurant in London (UK) would be no more than 3 and in a well known UK supermarket the same bottle would cost you less than 1. However, I would still say spoil yourself. Stay here.

    Practicale but patchy service and OK location

    from

    Hyatt in Istanbul is very practicale - broadband access, bathroom, gym, breakfast service etc works perfectly. Compared to its Istanbul peers - Hyatt's location and view is not particular in any way. The staff just does the job but with no particular care or thought. Would describe it as average at best. Would rather describe it for a business traveller to Istanbul that has been there several times but for your first trip to this beautiful city this is not the hotel. There is more stunning beautifully located hotels to chose from.

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    This is a beautiful hotel where the staff make every effort to accommodate your needs. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a wonderful bathroom. The breakfast was superb, and it is a short walk from Taksim square.

    Not bad

    from

    Beautiful rooms and common areas of the hotel are decorated in a typically Hyatt sleek, contemporary design with Turkish influences. Bathrooms are generous in size and very attractive. Regency Club offers a good breakfast and evening cocktails.

    Service is not very good, however. Housekeeping staff have not been trained to smile and greet guests, and health club service is very poor.

    Hammam is bizarrely open only from 3pm to 9pm, which might suit the hotel management but certainly doesn't suit guests. Huge outdoor pool is closed from September to June - why can't the management use a bit of imagination and realise that if it were heated and open all year round, the Hyatt would set itself apart from other 5 star hotels in the city, and attract much more custom?

    Very special

    from

    Stayed here recently for my first weekend away with my girlfriend and was hoping it would be special and it was! Superb facilities, friendly staff, well appointed room, great restaurant (my girlfriend loved the kebabs!) and helpful staff. Would recommend it to anyone, now engaged, can't promise it will do that for you though!

    Nice Room

    from

    The hotel is very nice. The room is beautiful and the bath is huge. The only thing I didn't like was the overpriced food in the restaurant. It was unbelievably expensive. It was something like $8 for a glass of orange juice. However, I would stay there again.

    Superb!

    from

    Simply stunning. Spent a month here and it cannot be faulted. Of all the hotels I have used in this world from Atlanta to Sydney this is the best by far!

    Let's talk Turkey

    from

    My wife and I spent a week, August 4-10, 2004, in Istanbul, staying at the Hyatt Regency. The hotel was excellent -- not as grand as the Ciragan Palace Hotel (where my rich daughter stayed), but considerably less expensive. The staff -- like the Turks in general -- were warm, engaging and helpful. The hotel lobby is fine, the rooms good-sized, clean and comfortable, with great beds. There is a nice swimming pool and a choice of onsite restaurants, including Italian and Japanese. We had a package deal that included airfare and breakfast, but I understand a room cost $120 single, $160 double. As to Turkey itself, it's a wonderful place. Friends thought we were crazy to visit there, but we felt quite secure (even though there was a bombing at a "tourist" hotel the day we left). Security was good at the Hyatt.

    Back on the plane

    A travel blog entry by anlnewby on May 30, 2015

    So an early wake up this morning. We had a flight to catch to Istanbul. It was to be the start of our first ever organised tour. The airport was very quiet in Budapest, so it ran very smoothly. Then after 3 hours of sitting on a plane we were hit by the mad house Istanbul calls an airport. It was very busy at the passport check and things were made so much worse by there not being any set lines formed for each counter. It was a shambles ...

    ... outside on the sidewalk (none inside). We had no clue what to get, but settled on the Kofte (delicious beef meatballs) and a pepper stuffed with rice. Both were delicious. We ordered one serving of each to share and ended up ordering a second serving of each!

    Well, we survived our first day in Turkey! Being in this neighborhood and hearing the call to prayers over the loudspeaker, we really feel like we are far removed from the western world.

The audience seemed to be abundant in number and very amused. As many were walking in to come, many stopped to listen and eventually sat down. This performance felt like many of concerts have have performed in at Randolph-Macon. The audience was attentive and engaged in our music that we have worked ...
