Why we choose Park Hyatt Istanbul

A top hotel housed within an impressive Art Deco ’palas’

  • The Wine Bar wows with 70 different varietals, extensive cocktail menu and tapas
  • Park Hyatt has the most spacious guestrooms in the city
  • Hotel shops offer Turkish art, jewelry, carpets and hand-woven shawls

Park Hyatt Istanbul, Macka Palas, advertises their belief that “luxury is personal,” and it seems to be more than a motto. They customize guests’ stays by trying to (unobtrusively) uncover their needs and fulfill them. They point to an example of preparing a birthday cake for a business woman who had forgotten it was her birthday until the cake showed up. Now that’s service!

What you need to know about the hotel

From the food to spa treatments that use semi-precious stones, this Park Hyatt has a reputation for quality

  • Spa rooms are 24-hour relaxation hubs, with separate steam rooms, splash tubs, rain showers, light therapy and traditional Turkish baths
  • The 20-meter outdoor pool is surrounded by wild bamboo and includes lounge chairs for post-swim sips and nibbles
  • Great steak in Turkey? The Prime, which specializes in steak and seafood, has floor-to-ceiling wine display walls and a show kitchen

Park Hyatt Istanbul was initially was built in 1922 as Maçka Palas, a residence for Italian Embassy employees. Next, it became a prestigious apartment building and finally, in 2008, a grand hotel. Fortunately, the last transformation retained the Art Deco touches of famed original architect Guilio Mongeri.

Today, the hotel has 90 rooms whose 1920s-meets-modern design earned a Golden Key Award for Best Guestroom Design. All of the rooms are quite comfortable, with the upper level accommodations especially noteworthy. The spa rooms are complete bliss, and the five Penthouse Suites on the 8th floor—with private terraces affording lovely Bosphorus views—are worth the splurge.

Where is it and what's nearby

The soaring hotel sits in Istanbul’s swanky, ultra-fashionable Nisantasi residential and shopping district

  • Explore the picturesque Bosphorus on a traditional steamboat, where you’ll admire palaces, mansions and bridges that connect Asia and Europe
  • Built by Constantine the Great, Hagia Sophia is now a museum where you can marvel at its immense dome and Byzantine mosaics
  • Take a three-hour guided tour of Topkapi Palace to explore the political intrigues and architectural accomplishments of the Ottoman Empire

Istanbul is a convergence of opposites: where Asia meets Europe and where ancient meets modern. The shopping is a case in point: There’s high-end boutiques, as well as bazaars and markets that have been around for centuries. The best way to experience the city is via walking tours with knowledgeable guides, who customize excursions ranging from history to architecture to cultural and religious landmarks. The hotel, which is in the heart of the fashion district, also allows you to jump into the city’s treasures solo, with easy access to trendy restaurants, cafes, art galleries and local and international shops.

How to enjoy Turkey

Perched at the edge of Europe, Turkey has acted as a gateway between the continent and the rest of the world for many years. Centuries of exotic influence through trade and conquests can be seen in its architecture and culture

  • One of the most relaxing ways to visit bustling Istanbul is a boat trip on the Bosphorus. See the 19th Century sultan’s Palace, Dolmabahçe, Maiden’s Tower and more
  • Visit the Southern city of Adana to see the arched Roman bridge that has withstood earthquakes and battles over more than two millennia
  • Pamper yourself at the glorious Çemberlitas Hamam in Istanbul, its white marble interiors and massages to die for will feel like a real treat

Elegant Byzantine churches sit side-by-side with the ornate domes and spired minarets of mosques in the heart of Turkey’s capital, Istanbul. For a stunning example of Ottoman design, see the delicate stained glass windows and decorative tiles of the 1557 Suleymaniye Mosque. For spectacular cityscape views, head to the top of the observation tower, Galata. Built in 1384 it has been offering wonderful panoramic views for centuries.

Explore the modern, flower-scented, seafront city of Izmir. The city, along with nearby Ephesus and Pergamon enjoy a history dating back to 3000BC. See the Zeus Altar and the Artemis Temple in Izmir and the Temple of Hadrian at Ephesus before a refreshing swim in the Aegean. No trip to turkey would be complete without a mooch about the bazaars. The 1461 Grand Bazaar in Istanbul has a labyrinth of lanes and corridors selling everything from leather to ceramics, rugs and silver.
