The 5-star, 590-room Conrad
next to the main buildings of Yıldız
Palace on a hillside overlooking
the Bosphorus (map).
The hotel's public rooms are rich
in colored stone with which
Turkey abounds. Service is
Most of its 584 guest rooms and 51
Executive rooms, suites and apartments
have Bosphorus views.
As with any hotel boasting Bosphorus
views, the views vary from
room to room—keep this in
mind when you reserve.
The Conrad has an indoor-outdoor
swimming pool and its own tennis
courts as well as a spa,
sauna and health club.
Although the Conrad is right next
to Yıldız Palace and
only a noisy 10-minute walk uphill
from busy Beşiktaş,
with its Naval Museum, ferry
dock and market district,
you'll find yourself taking taxis to
just about everywhere else.
If you're coming to Istanbul
for business the Conrad
is a good choice: from the hotel
you can zoom right up Barbaros Bulvarı
to the Esentepe, Gayrettepe,
Mecidiyeköy and Zincirlikuyu
Room Rates & Availability

people and/or lots of luggage), and far
more pleasant, comfortable and trustworthy. More...
