Good location, but dated Jan 16, 2010
I've stayed here twice about a week each time for work. This hotel has some major plusses. It is in a phenomenal location -- within easy walking distance to Taksim Square, an area with great restaurants and nightlife as well as the Istanbul Convention Center. The hotel has gorgeous grounds and a beautiful view of the Bosphorus. The hotel has a tremendous breakfast buffet every morning with a variety of options that put your standard hotel breakfast offerings to shame. There are three restaurants on the ground, my favorite, oddly was the Chinese restaurant (located on the grounds, but separate from the main building) The staff is friendly and knowledgable.

One thing that is at first unnerving, but then comforting is the security. When arriving on the grounds via car, you pass a security checkpoint complete with concrete dividers and a bomb check. Entering the hotel itself means more security, complete with bag examination. At least you feel totally safe while you stay here!

My biggest complaint about the hotel lies in the guest room themselves. They have rock hard beds, dated/worn carpet and Internet is wired and fairly costly (it still boggles my mind that the more expensive the hotel, the more likely you are to have to pay for Internet access). The bathrooms, however, are pretty phenomenal.

Istanbul Hotel May 08, 2009
I liked this hotel but to be quite honest, I will not stay here my next time through Istanbul. Most of the historic sights are across the Bosphorus within walking distance of other hotels. The location of this Hilton is fine is you are more of a nightlife seeker than a sightseer. There were 3 restaurants in the hotel - one of which was a casual cafe style place on the ground floor and one was a not-so-convenient Chinese place which was quite the walk from the main hotel although the food was pretty decent. The signature restaurant was called The Roof on, you guessed it - the top floor. The food was awesome and it was literally right next to the executive lounge, which was nice. Speaking of the Exec Lounge, this was one of the better ones I have seen. Food selection was good, was available at all times of the day and the view of the Bosphorus would probably rival any else in the city. Plus, as I was fond of the Efes Pils beer, plenty was to be had. For those of you that place a lot of stock in the hotel gym, this one ranked about a 6 out of 10 at best. Equipment was scarce although what they had was new. There was a nice indoor pool for lap swimmers, and the outdoor pool looked awesome although it was not open yet. The spa does have a Turkish bath, which I don't understand (looked like a room full of sinks to me, perhaps someone can educate me!!) but the locker-room had a very nice steam bath, cold plunge and sauna. Overall, the gym was in the far corner of the property, which required 2 elevator rides, and about 250 meters of hallways to get to.
