Expert review of Barcelo Eresin Topkapı

High-quality large hotel that caters to an international business clientele.

This recently renovated branch of a Spanish hotel chain lacks the uniqueness of many Istanbul hotels, but I think the level of amenities and service it offers makes it a solid choice for business travellers, and anyone else who prefers to stay a safe distance away from the bulk of the visiting crowds.

Location: 

Don’t be fooled: The “Topkapı” in the name refers not to the famous palace in Sultanahmet, but to a lesser-known neighbourhood near the Byzantine city walls. With good freeway access to the airport and proximity to the new conference centre along the Golden Horn, the location is convenient for many business travellers. Sightseers can hop on the tram that stops right out front for the approximately 20-minute ride to the heart of the Old City.

Bedrooms: 

I liked the subdued sophistication of the modern, spacious rooms, with their rich brown furniture and accent fabrics. All rooms are large and similarly appointed, making the standard “deluxe” room a good value; more expensive rooms come with spa or gym access and other perks.

The Picasso Restaurant serves well-prepared Turkish and international cuisine and hosts food festivals and other culinary events throughout the year.

The Aqua Life Club contains a nicely sized heated indoor swimming pool, a Turkish bath, two saunas, and a fitness centre with a trainer on staff. Various massage treatments are also available.

Service: 

The service is fairly formal and generally professional, though not stellar.
