After a careful selection by me and my husband, the choice to stay at Crowne Plaza for New Year was the best we could made! |The hotel itself is a unique place carrying the Ottoman style flavored with some modern features. Staff was impeccable and made our stay compliant with the highest standards! Special thanks to Alaattin, who gave us a warm welcome to the room, and Haci-Huseyin and Ahmed at reception, who offered us the wonderful executive suite that truly contributed to the unforgettable time at this trip! |Surely, this will not be our last stay in Crowne Plaza and I would recommend the place to everyone who seeks up-to-standart comfort and service, as well as focal location in the historical part of this metropolis!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Istanbul's old city, and I wanted to express my gratitude for the exceptional service provided by your staff. In particular, I would like to commend Ekrem for his outstanding assistance and friendliness throughout my stay. His attention to detail and helpful attitude truly enhanced my experience. I believe his dedication deserves recognition, and I hope you can consider acknowledging his exceptional service. The hotel's amazing location added to the overall positive impression, making my stay memorable. I look forward to recommending the Crown Plaza to friends and colleagues.
