Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The Barcelo Istanbul garners accolades for its top-notch service and welcoming atmosphere, with guests frequently commending the professional staff and the hotel's pristine condition. Its prime location near Taksim Square is a highlight for travelers, ensuring safety and convenience. While the pricing has raised some eyebrows for not delivering the best value, the hotel's amenities, including a delectable breakfast and expansive rooms, often leave visitors with a positive impression. However, guests have suggested that the bathroom design could benefit from some refinement.

Excellent stay with my family in Dec 2019. The hotel has a great breakfast buffet with great food variety and quality (particularly partial to the great honey spread). The hotel is in a great location, just a 6-7 min walk to Taksim square and the very lively Istiklal Street. The rooms are clean and the staff was friendly and responsive to all of our requests. There are a number of wellness options (gym with a great view of the city, baths, massage) at the hotel which we used and enjoyed. The staff also does a great job in guiding you around the city and booking restaurant reservations, although you would probably be able to find a great number of nice restaurants around the area on your own.

I went twice and it was even better the second time round! We experienced the couple full body massage and Hamam. This was our first time in a Hamam so we didn’t know what to expect. First it’s an amazing facility, quiet, relaxing and vast. After the reception we were led to a lovely room where we were given time to disrobe and get ready. Then our masseuses came in and gave us a much needed full body massage focusing on the areas we needed the most. After we were done we were taken to a heated Exclusively for me and my husband where we were pampered, washed and exfoliated. Truly a magnificent experience. My lady spoke perfectly English (to my absolute delight) and had 17 years experience in her field. She gently washed my hair and rinsed with such care like she would do to a loved one, I felt so taken care off! My husbands lady (her name was Ayesha I think) was just as good. However I can’t sing enough praises for mine. If you guys go ask for the experiences English speaking lady who worked for 17 years in the field and learnt English while working in Antalya! It was so good we went twice in three days! It takes away all the aches and pains of the day walking around Istanbul. I’m truly going to miss being pampered!

This hotel is located a few minutes walk from taksim, plenty of eateries in the area and you will never struggle to find restaurants.

First impressions are that it’s beautiful and when you walk in it has the wow factor, we were served a welcome drink and the staff could not have done more to be polite and helpful.

The rooms are really spacious and have everything you need, the beds are big the bathrooms are big you have plenty of room to store your things. The rooms that come with Hammam are fantastic really recommend you take this option and ensure you let it heat up for over 2 hours. The decor of the rooms are so cosy and tasteful, I can’t get over just how spacious the rooms are.

The breakfast area is good considering covid , they will bring you juice and hot drinks to the table. The lady at the egg station very lovely , and the breakfast servers also so kind. I would have liked more options such as baked beans or some potato dishes but that’s just me being a stuck up British person set in My ways, this is the only hotel we came across still providing an excellent buffet style breakfast considering covid and we have stayed at 4 others on this stay. We were really surprised by the quality of the food delivered by room service it was piping hot and really tasty so that’s also a nice option as rooms are so spacious and nice to dine in.

We used the cafe for drinks a few times very nice Turkish tea and latte, rooftop bar is closed but I belive It has a fantastic view.

We did encounter a few issues but I felt they had been resolved by the end of the stay, and Eva (Guest Relations Manager) worked to ensure we were happy and they really did turn it around and that is why this review is what it is. Furthermore providing an issue is brought to the hotels attention and then resolved in full I don’t believe this should affect the overall score.

I would recommend this hotel it’s good value for money. I am very happy with the attentive customer service from both Burhan Yildiz ( Asst front office manager) and Eva Lenart ( Guest Experience Manager) they are both an asset to the Barcelo.

If you want a clean fancy hotel With great breakfast and excellent customer service then this hotel Won’t disappoint.

I stayed at Barcelo Istanbul over the New Years period. I had an amazing stay over all although certain aspects can be improved on.
The hotel is in an amazing location close to taksim square and walking distance to Nisantasi. The hotel and its lobby is beautiful and staff are very pleasant, concierge staff in particular are 10/10. They were very helpful with bookings, arranging taxis and negotiating prices. The hotel offered a portable wifi which was amazing and a good price but the wifi devices were not properly charged and died really quickly. Ask for a fully charged one and you should be good.
The rooms are nice but the bathrooms are exquisite! Very grand! Temperature control in the room was a little difficult to adjust as it was either always too cold or too hot. Furniture is also a little dated but overall rooms were very comfy and clean.
New Year’s Eve dinner had a lot of options and the fresh food stations were really great they had a grill and pasta station in addition to hot food, sushi (3/10), Mezes and deserts. There was a mix up with our reservation for dinner and the maître d' was very condescending about it. That was our only negative experience.

Overall the hotel was great with easy access to all shopping and tourist attractions

I have stayed in several 5 star hotels in Istanbul and Barcelo is by far the best of them all and I will list the reasons.
1. Staff throughout the hotel are kind and attentive to your individual needs.
2. I had an issue with the Hammam in my room, a feature I highly recommend, and Barcelo went above and beyond my expectations by upgrading me to a better room.
3. It is evident that this brand of hotel value guest satisfaction very highly and I'm sure this creates a lot of repeat custom and loyalty from their patrons. I will surely look to stay in a Barcelo hotel when I travel to other countries.
4. The buffet breakfast is definitely amongst the best I've had in hotels, with the food being fresh and of a wide variety to suit all palets. The staff regularly check for temperatures with probes to ensure compliance.
5. The location of this hotel is close to Taksim Square, but a little set back which benefits from not being overly congested on the streets nearby.
6. This was my first time staying in a Barcelo hotel and I was extremely impressed with the high standards employed across all parts of this hotel. They truly deserve their 5 star rating and makes you realise that many other places you've stayed in do not.

This happened to us in our last stay, we are being charged for something that we never touch or eat. They charged us 45 Lira for Oreo cookies which my son never touches or eat at all. He never knows there is a fridge under the mini bar and never open it. What happened is, we actually bought an Oreo cookie from groceries outside and eat in the room, throw the wrap into trash bin. Perhaps because of housekeeping lady saw this wrap, she marked in the sheet that we take this Oreo from the fridge, while the cookies still in the fridge untouched.
After few minutes argument in front desk with receptionist, we just paid that 45 Lira, but does not mean we admitted we have taken that cookie. It is just we don't want to argue anymore. But I am really dissatisfied with this situation, which does not supposed to happen in 5-star hotel like Barcelo. Very bad to the brand name.
Please next time, before the housekeeping lady marked the food or beverages as consumed by the guest, double check again in the fridge, are those items really taken from the hotel or guest bought it from somewhere else?

The hotel is in a good location with lots of nearby restaurants and shops. I had a bad experience checking in (I waited 2 hours to check in at 2:30 PM). And, the checkout process was very complicated. Moreover, the housekeepers were knocking/ringing the bell early morning to clean the room even though I had a do not disturb sign. The housekeepers are not chating the bed sheets everyday. The hotel employees are very nice, but the front security guards are not professional when you're getting and out of the hotel. Overall, I had a good experience. I recommend this hotel if you're visiting Istanbul.

I will undoubtedly say this hotel is the best in the city of Istanbul for the following reasons:
The great Service from the fabulous crew.
The cleanliness which was immaculate
The super delicious breakfast with a vast variety of items
The experience has started well before arrival , during my reservation which has been handled super professionally by Mr Selcuk the reservation manager.
We have arrived at the property at 10am and Mr Selcuk has personally welcomed us , arranged the rooms with the super friendly lady at the reception. And literally we all had our rooms at 10am . We have been offered a welcome drink , a yummy Turkish tea and coffee. Our luggage has been brought up by the porter. Rooms are super spacious, new, clean , well lighted, spacious bathrooms with bathtub and rain shower . The “ atelier rebul” amenities are smelling so good that the whole room is scented by them .
The linen is crispy and brand new . The view to the city . Our room attendant Agajon was perfect. Great attention to details .
During breakfast the crew including the Chef will great each of the guests individually with a great smile.
Thank you Barcelo Istanbul for such an unforgettable stay . Kudos to all the management and team of Barcelo Istanbul.
We will recommend it to all our friends and for sure we will be back soon.

I stayed at Barcelo Istanbul for 13 nights and I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay close to Taksim Square. This hotel was in a perfect location as less than 5 minutes walk to the Square, but also if you want to escape the busy and noise crowd at night. The hotel itself is luxury and well maintained! All the staff working at the hotel were extremely helpful and very polite, especially the staff at the reception and concierge. It was great that the staff could speak fluent English and there was minimal language barrier at the front desk. So they are doing an excellent job there!! The front desk used to get very busy most the time and you always had to wait a while to get someones attention, same applied when I used to call the front desk from the room they didn't answer the phone most times because they were too busy - slightly annoying but OK. Staff at the spa were really nice to talk to and got a back massage from there - highly recommend as the staff working there know what they are doing for sure!! Breakfast was good and high variety which is good. I had a few issues whilst staying at the hotel, however the staff working at the hotel and guest experience resolved all my issues and made me satisfied at the end which is the most important thing. Good sleep at night and rooms were spacious. Before leaving my luggage was really heavy, but the front desk really helped me quickly get things out and weigh my suitcases so thank you!

Overall satisfied with my stay here 2nd time in Istanbul and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying at Istanbul. I would be back if I visit Istanbul again :)
