Cons: Dirty carpets and bedding. No electric points for charging mobiles by the bed. Noisy A/C
Pros: Our hotel was large and spacious with nice view and one of the best bathrooms I have seen in a hotel yet... Completely recommend.
Pros: Very nice spread for breakfast and lunch.
Cons: I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Istanbul for business. Upon arriving at the hotel, I learned that the hotel had incorrectly booked my reservation for two extra days at the business rate (I had booked 2 days at a lower rate, as I would be staying for leisure and did not want to pay the higher rate paid by my employer). Rather than fixing this, I was told to deal with it with my agency, even though I had a copy of the email confirming the length of my stay. For a 5-star hotel, this is an okay option--nothing special compared to others in the city. Most of their hotel staff are nice, but many (especially reservation and reception staff) are fairly complacent and could use a refresher on etiquette and courtesy.
Pros: Everything was class act. Staff, luggage storage, room, cleanliness. Gym

Close to airport
Free airport shuttle
Cons: Not many restaurants within walking distance
Pros: the hotel is new , clean and have many facilities.
Cons: Location is very far from the tourist places and I surprised that the breakfast was not included in the booking rate which was not clear when I booked.

Pros: The rooftop terrace was an absolute dream!Staying on the first floor we were initially worried about the noise level coming in from the street; however, once the windows were closed it was super quiet!

Pros: It's very well-located, if you have to be near Taksim this is the best place. It's close enough to the meydan and to the Metro and buses, but not so close to Istiklal where all of the noise and crowds are. The rooms are nice and comfortable.
Cons: The Wifi was very slow and kept going in and out, if you're paying $140 for a room you shouldn't have to deal with something even $28/night hotels in Istanbul get right.
My wife and my passports were stolen from me. The hotel was more than accommodating to our needs. They even gave us a discount when we extended our stay.

Everything was about this hotel and the staff was excellent. The true definition of hospitality! I have another trip to Istanbul this coming May or June and this will be where I stay again.
