Live like a Sultan, while visiting the Sultans Feb 11, 2011
I have to say this is a really nice hotel if you can afford it. I stayed here during a conference and was very pleased. Lots of amenities - Free Internet too, but a bit slow. It's modern and upscale with great rooms, clean and comfortable - get one with a Bosphorus view. The staff is helpful and quick to attend to your requests. I found little to complain about, except maybe the snooty attitude of the staff on the 16th floor in the hotel club lounge. I found it kind of annoying considering the service was far superior and more friendly in the Safran Restaurant or City Lights Bar in the hotel. There are some great views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus from these places in the hotel.

The hotel is located in Beyoglu, very close to Taksim Square and Istikal Avenue, where it is busy day and night for shopping, dining and bars. The location seemed very convenient in this regard after a day of seeing the sites. The main historic sites are accessible by taxi for 15TL, or you can take the Funicular (near Taksim) down to the river and then the Tram to the center of things - Get off at the end of Hudavendigar for Topkapi Palace. From there you can see Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, etc.

I can recommend it highly. My understanding is that even in the historic area, lower scale hotels are charging much more than in the past because the tourists pay to stay there. Think about Beyoglu - it's not far from the sites (via taxi or tram), the hotels are more upscale and Istikal Avenue is a great way to wind down the day with dinner or spend a late night with activity in close proximity to your hotel. Besides the Ceylan there is a Marriot , Hilton and other establishments too that are more modern with good comfort. Why not live like a Sultan while visiting the Sultans?

It's true, Tim, and the expense of such a hotel is high, but as I mentioned in my review many of the decent hotels near the tourist sights are expensive now too, so this place becomes an option now.

Perfect for Business Travellers Jun 28, 2011
Right Choice for business travellers as well as leisure travelers. Hotel is located just behind Taksim Square. Corporate offices are closeby plus shopping malls are just a street behind. Over all its a worthy experience. The hotel have an amazing pub as well.

highrise hotel with a view in Istanbul Aug 19, 2008
The Ceylan Intercontinental Hotel as Taksim Square was our home away from home in Istanbul, we stayed there 3 times for a total of 5 nights. We had rooms on the 9th floor, with view of the Bosphorus and Istanbul. The hotel rooftop restaurant had terrific view. The rooms were very nice, comfortable. and amenities in the bathrooms were all as expected in a 5 star hotel. The food in the restaurant was good too, breakfast buffet had great selection and variety of tastes to suit everyone. But I won't recommend eating at the restaurant here just for the food, because it is way more expensive than elsewhere! We enjoyed a dinner at the rooftop restaurant with wonderful view of the city and Bosphorus below, for about $100 per person! Internet access was not free in the room and we ended up not using it. The location of the hotel was good too, very convenient, less than 5 minute walk to Taksimi Square, and then you can walk down the Istiklal Caddesi pedestrian street.

In short, a classy hotel with great location, amenities and view, but expensive restaurants. You have to pay for parking and internet access too.
