          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...


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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


          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.



          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


          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.

          My visit to Turkey coincided with Eid-al-Adha, one of the most important festivals in the Islamic calendar. It is a happy occasion in which Muslims pray together, meet with friends and family, exchange gifts and donate to the less fortunate. The impact to the tourist.....well it means a large majority of shops and bazaars are shut for 4 days. It started on Saturday 4 October, which meant I had to get in a lot of sight seeing on my 2nd day - Friday. I was supposed to be ...

Also of course the 21,000 blue tiles decorating the inside are fantastic. It was very peaceful inside despite the crowds. We had a walk around and stood admiring the dome and the beautiful windows before making our way out.
