Very impressed with this hotel. Service and facilities provided were of a high standard. We very much enjoyed our stay and would have liked to extend our time at the hotel by a few more days! Would certainly recommend.

We stayed at the Intercontinental prior to a cruise. One night was included with the cruise, but when we wanted to add a second night, they charged us over $700. The room was not cleaned well. The common areas in the hotel are gorgeous and the food in the restaurant was great. However, the rooms are small and look like...

We arrived in the afternoon, with many other cruise passengers, for a one night stay. Bearing in mind the number of people the reception staff were dealing with, our check in was completed in a reasonable time. A bell boy took us and our luggage to a magnificent large room, which made us wish we were staying there for longer...

I stayed in intercontinental for a week and I visited it twice. The thing I didnt like is that there is no indoor swimming pool. But the services are fine and the breakfast is good. The hotel is not that bad, its fine and everything is okay.

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
