"Needs to be closer to the action"
There is nothing they can do about this now, but this nice hotel is simply too far from the city center of Istanbul. Traffic can be very messy, taxi divers want to amp up their fees, there are no good restaurants nearby, and there is nothing to do around this location. The staff is very friendly and accomodating but due to location, I would not recommend […] this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good hotel, good service, poor breakfast"
I like the concept and rooms, sleep comfort was very good, stuff was perfect but breakfast is poor , I mean very poor for this quality of hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location and service"
I did not know the hotel was so far from the main areas I would want to visit. If i had known i would not have booked it. Not your fault. What was your fault 1- hotel staff did not inform me of a daily shuttle to the main part of the city 2- hotel staff did not check to se emy status as diamond and initially charged me for breakfastGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel with nice view on the sea and good park"
the hotel is very nice in a very quite area, with good view over the sea and city. there is a shuttle bus to and from Taksim squareGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location is far"
The hotel itself is pleasant enough and the staff are friendly and helpful. However, the room we were given is small and I would recommend you do not pay extra for the Golden Horn view as the windows are really too small to enjoy the view and the rooms have no balconies (at least the one we were given). I am a Hilton Honours member, and yet when we […] asked for an upgrade we were not given one; they actually offered a lower floor as an upgrade for the exact same room in size and view! I asked for a late check-out as we had an evening flight and we were given only till 3 pm and it was a big to-do to get them to extend it to 4. However, all this was done very pleasantly and they were eager to try (or appear to try) to help. Breakfast was good if not exceptional. It cost us TL50 (around $30) extra for two people. The main problem with this hotel is the distance from the center of the city. There is a shuttle that runs 3 times a day, returning at 9:30 and 11:30 in the evening. This means you end up staying out all day if you decide to use the shuttle, which makes it difficult to go back to the hotel to take a shower and relax mid-day. If you choose to take a taxi into town, this will cost you TL25 or so (about $15) each way, which may cancel out any savings you make staying at this hotel. Although the hotel was very pleasant to stay in, I would not stay here again because of the distance which is quite inconvenient. I would prefer to pay extra and stay in the heart of town.

"Brandnew Hotel located Next to Miniatürk"
Very nice hotel, brandnew, nice staff, diversified breakfast, nice Fitness center, but located a little bit far from the main city attractions. It´s located next to Miniatürk (good reference point). Not every taxi driver knows how to find the Hotel. I - Best way to get to the Hotel from Atatürk Airport: Go by Subway to the Topkapi-Ulubatli Station and […] then take a Taxi. II - Nearest Bus stop: IMRAHOR CADDESI III - Buses: From Taksim: 54 HT From Mecidiyeköy and Şişli: 54 HŞ From Eminönü: 47, 47 Ç, 47 E From Topkapı: 41ST IV - Recommend to buy an Akbil card to get around by bus, subway or tram Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hilton Garden Inn Golden Horn, Istanbul"
all I can say is I wish I had an accurate review to read, like what I am about to write, before I had booked this. The location is so far north on the Golden Horn, nothing i.s nearby. I needed something from drug store, I needed another charger, he needed a haircut...nothing is close to the hotel. A taxi ride to Taksim, is the closest and cost 25TL […] from the hotel but when you return since none of the taxi drivers know this new hotel and it's area, they take you all around and you'll pay for it. The rooms are so tiny. The pictures are deceiving. They ave the worst pillows I have ever used. They are not down or fiber, they are overly fluffy and give a stiff neck. Believe me we tried everything to flatten them a little. The housekeeping service was horrible. They have a water conservation plan so they overlook details when cleaning they are not thorough. They give 2 towels only. They do not give a top and bottom shjeet. Only bottom with the duvee' cover. but the duvee' cover can get warm. The temperateure controls are not reliable. The room gets extremely hot and then it gets extreemly cold and you wake up freezing. I had to ask maintenance to come check it several times. We have not touched it but when you walk out the door you take your room key out of the slot and it shuts everything off. The food is bland, selection is the same day to day on breakfast buffet. If you decide to eat lunch or dinner in the restaurant, two cheeseburger plate cost $50+ USD, ridiculously overpriced with no flavor. They do however, have wonderful belgium waffles but no sysrup so you get bits and pieces of things. Remember muslim country so no pork available and they have pink pickled weiners that they call sausage- gross. I do love the Hilton family hotels but just not this one. I suggest staying at the Contrad, DoubleTre or other Hilton if not booked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great place to stay on new years eve"
We arrived on New Years eve, and to our surprise a real bash was going on, with all the trimmings. Hotel guests invited, along with a lot of locals. A great time. The staff were very polite and helpful, recommending walks, etc. The only drawback: the hotel is some distance from most tourist attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NYE at the Hilton Garden"
The staff all spoke English are a very helpful. The NYE party at the hotel was terrific but unfortunately, no dance floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great property but a little off centre"
I stayed in a room with a balcony and it was great being able to see the view of the Golden Horn bay every morning. The staff was always helpful and friendly, everyone from the front desk to housekeeping. The hotel is kept very clean and organised, and there is a small business centre that staying guests can use for free. If I were to complain, I'd […] say the gym could be better ventilated... I had to keep the door open when using it. The location is not central, but provided that the taxi driver knows where he's going, getting to and from major sites shouldn't take more than 15 to 20 minutes. While I had no problem going out, returning to the hotel was often a problem as taxi drivers always tried to take me to Hilton Istanbul near Taksim Square - even with the address card provided. Taxis in Istanbul aren't cheap, so be prepared to pay more than US$10 each way; and if the taxi is lost, it's more, or you'd have to argue with the cabbie for a reduction, which is no easy task if you don't speak the language. All in all though, I was happy with the hotel, and if they would provide a regular shuttle service for guests between the property and Taksim (even if for a charge), I would not hesitate to go back.

I stayed 3nights in this Hotel , and ist say its clean , quiet, and with a nice view. stuff are polite and warm ...all in all, I must say it deserves what you pay, much better than Shreraton .Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was ok with no bad incidence. It is "out of nowhere" as there are not many hotel within the vicinity. A few taxi drivers had difficulty finding the hotel as the road leading to the hotel was not prominent. I have a brilliant view of the Golden Horn from my roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and clean hotel with very rude staffs"
I already explain my first impression about this hotel just let you know during check-out there were no guest all and there were 2 receptionist and both of them are girl. one of the checked out us by smile and well wishes but another girl just ignored us. she even didn't look at us. good job done by house keeping they tidy up my room everyday very nicely […] and I found a girl in the restaurant, I believe she was the host and I think she is the only one who will smile to you and ask you about your comfortableness and other matters. she deserved 5 out of 5. great job. At the end I will not recommend this hotel at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not ideal for business"
The location is around 20 minutes from Taksim and longer to the main business districts. Probably better for the old city and tourists.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel but far away from must see sights"
If you get a sea facing room the view from the hotel is amazing, however a city facing room has the worst possible view a good hotel can offer.. The hotel is also far away from all the must see attractions but they make this up by offering a twice daily free shuttle to Taxim Square from where it is very easy to get around. There is also not much to […] do around the hotel... For a tourist if staying close to the attractions is a must this is not such a great bet.. However for business travelers cabs are readily available and it is fairly easy to get around to anyplace from here.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel is adequate for a stay but not a great location. Comfort was acceptable but not luxury and not what you would expect for this standard of hotel.

The staff is very friendly. The Garden Inn is a very basic hotel, No swimming pool; Lobby is very small, they just have one restaurant with limited items on the menu, the buffet compared to other 4 star hotels in Istanbul is not that great (not too many choices). But the overall experience is great, the hotel is very clean, safe and the staff is friendly, […] i will for sure recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Disgusting dining facilities, staff unattentive"
The reception staff were very pleasant and the room was of a good standard, although my "view" consisted of a dirty brick pit strewn with little...shockingly bad. However when I went to breakfast there were no clean tables and when I sat down at one no-one came over to clean my table and I was left to eat breakfast surrounded by other people's dirty […] cultery, plates and leftovers. That was disgusting. The floor was covered in food and cereal and no-one seemed in a rush to clean it up. When I went to have lunch on the terrace aside from giving me an ashtray, which I didn't even want, no-one came over to take a drinks or food order. In fact I was completely ignored. I would never stay here again and will definitely not recommend it to a friend. Hideous. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Svårt att tro att detta var Hilton"
Jag har väldigt svårt att tro att detta var ett Hilton hotell. Servicen var inte helt okej. Det fanns personal i receptionen som inte ens tittar en i ansiktet när de gör sitt jobb. Personalen i köket/restaurangen var nästan trötta på att jobba. Jag minns vid ett tillfälle när jag och min hustru beställde äggröra och personalen slängde tallriken på bordet.

"Gutes Hotel mit prima Service"
Das Hotel hat saubere Zimmer mit guter Ausstattung, Der Service mit WLAN und Ausdruck-Service ist prima. Man sollte sich ein Zimmer mit Seeblick sichern. Die Lage ist nicht so zentral und die Umgebung teilweise etwas schmuddelig, aber es stehen immer preiswerte Taxis vor dem Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotellet lå oppe på en bakke med flot udsigt over vandet fra hotelværelset. Hotel/hotelværelse var i fin stand med behagelige senge og god room service. Serviceniveauet var mindre godt. Når fx vi bestilte taxa fra receptionen, så brugte de deres egne chauffører. Disse chauffører kørte store omveje, når vi skulle ud og se seværdigheder. Da vi skulle […] tjekke ud ville receptionisten have os til at betale for morgenmad en ekstra dag. Selvom vi meget specifikt havde forklaret, hvor mange dage vi havde brug for morgenmad.

"Hilton Garden Inn Istanbul Golden Horn"
Asked to sign up for breakfast in exchange for a room upgrade, stupidly agreed. Room upgrade was not much better than what we already had except for a terrace instead of a balcony. Terrace was great, nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy a drink as well as the view, first class but it wasn't worth the extra cost in terms of breakfast. The kitchen […] was pretty poor, never any sausages, sometimes no fried eggs or no butter or no bacon or no American coffee or no pancakes, every day there was something else unavailable, did get one day refunded because I was finally driven to complain. Continental breakfast, bread, cheese, ham, fruit and yoghurt were no problem. Lunch and dinner were not gastronomically great either, for a four star hotel. but they knew how to charge. Always trying to get an extra Lire out of you. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, service was good and staff friendly, Top! Shuttle into town was handy and mostly on time, only the political situation, then, involved lots of police and security around the hotel. We were confined to the hotel one day (01-05-2014) due to riots in town. Pretty dull and no compensation although we could follow on CNN. No information from the hotel or Expedia about travel cards, which can save a lot of Lire! Situated just a little bit too far from "Old Town" and on top of a steep hill. Could be challenging for some older guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
