    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.

    Our last stop in Europe is Istanbul, Turkey. We arrived yesterday on Turkish Airlines after connecting through Zagreb on Croatian Airlines. You have to have a Turkish visa ($20 and you can do it online), but we didn't have access to a printer. So, the customs officers laughed when I handed over my iPad to show him the Visa.

So did I go to Turkey and get a Turkish bath? Yes. Did I like it? Not sure. Would I do it again? Probably not. Am I glad I participated in this cultural experience? Absolutely.

    ... happy. That's the thing here - with up to 18 million people in one city, life here is anything but isolated. The people are connected to each other. They don't have much but that's not important - their happiness comes from their human relationships, and at the end of the day that's what counts. It's cliche, but true. Why does this truth not penetrate our Western skins? We continued on and came across the Suleymaniye Mosque. It was right in the middle of this poor area, but ...

Especially the random story that when they built the domes of the mosque they got infested by spiders. So to put a stop to this the Turkish rubbed the domes with the insides of ostrich eggs!! After there we walked through the gardens of topkapi palace, beautiful gardens which were a nice break from the city chaos, that led us to the busy and spice market, set in an old arcade ...
