A luxury boutique hotel with a classic charm and ultra-modern touch.

I checked into the Park Hyatt Maçka Palas, a gorgeous boutique hotel perched right in the heart of Istanbul, in a posh area called Nişantaşı. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, there was a very cheerful doorman to assist me to the reception. There I met a very passionate front desk team who were proud to tell me all about their amazing country and superb hotel. Every detail was wonderful, from the beautiful interior design to the ultra-modern electronics and facilities.

The hotel is also just walking distance from the fancy residential and upscale shopping in the Nişantaşı district. There are also lots of trendy bars and restaurants, exciting nightlife, and iconic attractions all within walking distance.

The Room

I was very lucky to get upgraded to the Park Executive Suite which is 100-square-meters in size and complete with plush king-size bed, separate living area, cosy little work area, guest bathroom, and rooftop panoramic Bosphorus views. My favourite feature in the room was the Turkish bath with a full vanity set, deep soaking tub, and a fancy Dornbracht rainfall shower. There was even a 25 inch flat-screen TV in the bathroom!


With so many exciting dining options to check out in the Nişantaşı district I only had breakfast in the hotel. The first morning I decided to have breakfast at the Lounge at Park Hyatt. This is their cosy little breakfast spot. The breakfast buffet is on the smaller side however you have you have a fair variety of international and Turkish breakfast options. Everything on the buffet was nice and fresh and of good quality. For the following morning, I opted to try the in-room dining which was equally as delightful as it was pretty much the same selection of breakfast options. Only benefit of dining in my room was that I got to enjoy my coffee on the chilly terrace then a nice warm breakfast gazing outside at the lovely view.

Review Summary

I felt very safe and well looked after throughout my stay as the hotel has security presence throughout, they even have the metal detectors at the hotel entrance which made me feel at ease.

If you are looking for a luxury boutique hotel experience I would highly recommend Park Hyatt Maçka Palas because of the spacious rooms, relaxing vibe, amazing staff, and a great location!
