Expert review of Point Hotel Istanbul

Sleek and contemporary hotel with all the modern conveniences.

From its airy, two-story lobby to its modern, minimalist rooms, the Point Hotel is sleek and contemporary, incorporating only what I found to be the most tasteful of local touches – a sugar-dusted tray of lokum (Turkish delight) at the reception desk, a single black-and-white photo of Istanbul in each room – into its international style.

Location: 

On the edge of the centrally located Talimhane hotel district behind Taksim Square, the Point Hotel is just a few minutes’ walk to a bevy of transportation options and the heart of the city’s bustling Beyoğlu district. It’s also, unfortunately, on a busy, traffic-filled corner.

Bedrooms: 

The 194 rooms, including 20 suites or “executive rooms,” are minimalist, but I found them surprisingly warm, with earth tones predominating. Bathroom fixtures and cabinets are sleek, space-saving, and modern. All rooms have Internet and flat-screen TVs. Street noise can be a problem for light sleepers; rooms in the back of the hotel, along Recep Paşa Caddesi, are likely to be the quietest.

Public areas: 

A large lobby, two restaurants, a bar, and a café offer plenty of places to relax or meet. There’s also a business centre and six meeting rooms.

Eating and drinking: 

The rich buffet breakfast served in the upstairs dining room, which has Bosphorus and city views, will keep you going throughout a day of sightseeing. Udonya on the ground floor is the oldest Japanese restaurant in Istanbul – a treat in a city sorely lacking in Asian food.

Leisure facilities: 

An indoor pool, Turkish bath, and spa offer various tempting services, including aromatic oil massage, hydrotherapy, and yoga.

Service: 

Service is crisp, efficient, and fairly formal.

Who stays there: 

Business travellers, groups, design-conscious couples and singles.

Price advice: 

Unless you’ll be spending a lot of time in your room, it’s probably not worth shelling out for a suite, as the standard doubles are spacious enough.

Pros: 
Good location
Full set of amenities
Stylish décor
Cons: 
Traffic noise is a potential problem
