Bit far but OK Aug 10, 2012
Stayed 4 nights at this hotel.

Previous review mentioned that WiFi was paid and expensive but the time i stayed internet was free and good speed.

The hotel location is not the best it will take you 45 mins by tram to reach Taksim, thank god the tram is at the doorstep of the hotel.

Restaurant and room service food was excellent.

Rooms are not bad, at the time i stayed there was pest control and i had to complain about the smell but the hotel front desk made a nice step and upgraded me to a suit room, that was a good gesture from the hotel that i wont forget.

A good size swimming pool.

Hotel was full so i could not extend my stay, people complain about the standard of hotels in Istanbul but i had real bad experience before coming to a chain hotel that at least offer some standard service and when you complain somebody can hear you.

Prepare To Be Fleeced If You Stay Here Dec 05, 2010
The location isn't great, being out of the way at the far end of Topkapi. On the plus side though it is nearer the airport (20TL fo a taxi) and it does have a tram stop right in front of it.

Check in was fine, and the rooms,and the hotel in general are clean.Room was a pretty decent size for two, with a sofa in it to sit back and watch the TV. Unusually, the room had one 3 pin UK style socket to save having to use an adaptor.

The bathroom had plenty of room,and had a bath as well as a shower. All the soaps and shampoos were replenished every day, as were the towels.

The problem here was the price of everything in the hotel.The facilities offered,massage, spa treatments etc. were good, but hell of expensive.

There was a small open air swimming pool, but given it was December I resisted the temptation to try it :D.

The bar prices were ridiculous for the size of the drinks, as was the food in the restaurant. Also during most of our stay the main area around the bar was cordoned off, as they relaid the floor. 4 days to put down a bit of laminate :O

The hotel staff were pretty disinterested, never acknowledging you coming or going, and the twice I did get drinks from the bar it was slow. In fact twice I ordered and the guy would disappear for a while and then get the drinks :O

Was originally going to rate it as 3,just, but the main criteria I look at in doing my reviews these days is 'Would I Stay Here Again ?' and the answer is definately no, so a 2 for me. It had a bed,it was clean and it was warm is about it. Never a 5* hotel despite it's claims.

5 star hotels that 'suc'!!!!!! CAN NOT FIND A BETTER LANGUAGE;) Apr 17, 2009
HMMM why can not 5 STAR HOTELS OFFER a 5 STAR servıce? .....they would sell you half an hour on the ınternet for 5 Euros, whıle ınternet ıs free on the streets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So i think the streets offer better service than the Holiday Inn.My experıence at thıs hotel could be described as 'me agaınst the robbers'. They just wanted to take your money whenever you dıd not ANYTHING other than sleepıng. Holiday inn you have screwed my holiday out !....The funny part is when they give you the "Pillow Menu",you got to choose your pillow type (medium,high...etc) mistakeningly thinking that it is more importanat than wireless internet!!! All i was thinking was that i had work to do on the internet hell you and your pillows!!!

And the room service was so funny, they never came to pick my laundry, i guess they were working part time or something! and the laundry prices were exagerated a little, so socks that cost 3 euros to buy, would cost you 5 Euros to wash ....and at the end of the day there was this 8$ small bottle of water in the fridge drink it and pay or you die....and 25 grams of peanuts for 5 Euros :) Anyways after 4 nights i moved to a 4 star hotel that was half the price and double the comfort!
